Our lunch programs cannot happen without volunteers and we thank you for any time you can give!

To help you plan, here are the volunteer sessions for each grade level’s lunch:

Safety is always the school’s number one priority, we respect and appreciate that. All volunteers are required to follow the state mandates and school policies.  Volunteers can check in at the front office where they will be asked to fill out an attestation form, have their temperature taken and show a COVID vaccination card.  Volunteers must wear masks when in the school.

Thank you!

High School Helpers

We are excited to bring back this popular program!

OPS Student Helpers pairs interested RDHS students with OPS families looking for help with their child/children.  Our team has already made many successful matches.  Please reach out if you could use some help. Now is the time to plan for summer!

This help is available either virtually or in person; OPS and RDHS families should decide which works best for them.

OPS families can complete this Student Helper Request Form if interested in participating.  The team will work to pair you with your high school helper upon receipt of your form so you can get started right away.

The PTA will:

  • Pair up potential High School Helpers with an interested OPS family based on the information collected
  • Provide contact information for potential High School Helper matches to the OPS family

At that point, the PTA will step back and families can contact the matches directly to make sure there is a fit, set their schedule, coordinate services needed, etc. The PTA is simply facilitating the recruitment and pairing of interested parties.  Please note that there is an hourly fee related to this service, this fee is to be discussed and agreed upon by the two parties involved.  No portion of this fee is going to the PTA, as this is not a fundraiser.

Thank you to Michelle del Corral and RDHS Senior Becca Walker for setting up and organizing this program.


We hope you had a very Happy Thanksgiving!

President, Oradell PTA
