Parents and Guardiansinterested in volunteering in their child's classroom, chaperoning a field trip or volunteering in their child's school must submit a CORI request with a photo ID. CORI requests may be submitted directly to child's homeroom teacher, any Somerville Public School's main office, or online through the Volunteer Application.
