Chaperone Information 

All Adult Chaperones

All potential chaperones (not MCPS high school students, see below) must do the following to volunteer in MCPS:

  • COVID-19 Vaccination Attestation: MCPS is asking for a pdf copy of chaperone’s vaccination certificate in order to upload it to the Child Abuse and Neglect  module. You can download a copy from Maryland MyIR (directions for completing this process are located in this support guide).  As an alternative, you may also upload a copy of one of the following:
  • State Department of Health Certificate of COVID-19 Vaccination (DC, VA, WV)
  • Vaccination verification provided by the volunteer's health insurance provider
  • A letter from a primary care physician attesting to your vaccine status
