Field Trips

Completed field trip forms may be returned with your child or faxed to 299-1495.   Parents who wish to volunteer on field trips must obtain fingerprinting and a background check through APS. (Please see Volunteers for more details.)

Volunteers & Visitors


Visitors to our Campus

In accordance with state law, all visitors to our campus must first check in at the office and must wear a "Visitor" badge. We welcome and encourage your visits to John Baker, but strive to keep a close surveillance of our campus. We do this to ensure the safety and security of our students.  When checking in, you will identify the purpose of the visit.  It is unacceptable to visit a classroom unless you are scheduled to help with the teacher.  Other reasons to visit the classroom or meet with the teacher should be scheduled with the teacher in advance to prevent interruption to instruction.  If you need to leave something for your child, (i.e.: a jacket, homework, lunch, etc.) leave it with someone in the front office and we will get it to your child.

Parking / Transportation: Parking is available for parents, visitors and staff on the east end of our school, and south of our school next to the Hoover Middle School property. 

Volunteers on our Campus

It’s easier than ever to become a volunteer with the Albuquerque Public Schools thanks to a new online application process. Simply go to, fill out the application and pay the $12 processing fee (credit and debit cards accepted). Those who pass the background check will be able to start volunteering at APS schools within 10 business days.
