Record Service Hours

Recording of Online 2016-2017 Regular Service Hours
(5/1/16 – 4/30/17)

Recording of Service Hours Parent Portal for 2016-2017 Opens Thursday, December 8, 2016

Thank you for your patience with the delayed launch of the 2016-2017 Service Hours Parent Portal. Families may now begin recording their regular service hours performed between 5/1/16 through 4/30/17. Important! Please refer to the Service Hours Instruction Card enclosed in your Weekly Envelope on 12/8/16 for your family’s login credentials.

Helpful hints:

  • Multiple hours under one entry: Families may record multiple hours (maximum of 30 per entry) under the same Activity/Event by entering the most recent date of service and add a description to include the date range of hours performed, see example below.


  • “Other” Activity & Event category: The Other category requires that you enter the details of hours performed in the Description field. Entries without a description will result in an Hours Submission Error.
  • Lunch/Recess Hours: Please DO NOT record any Lunch/Recess hours under this link. Lunch and Recess hours are tracked and recorded by the Lunch Supervision Program.

Definition of St. Junipero Serra Service Hours:

St. Junipero Serra Service Hours is the completion of a volunteer task for a St. Serra sponsored activity or event. Hours are recorded on the honor system and are subject to review. Service Hours should be completed at the request of, or under the direction of, St. Serra Staff members or Parent volunteers who are responsible for a Serra activity or event.

Required Serra Service Hours Program:

St. Serra’s continued success relies on our parents' time, talent and treasure. To best manage these resources, each family is required to perform sixty (60) hours of service, including a Lunch/Recess Duty requirement and to commit their time for two of our major fundraisers. Each family is responsible for recording their Regular Service Hours online.

Fingerprinting and Safe Environment Requirements:

These requirements must be met prior to any volunteering on campus.
