Primary Substitutes Sign up Sheet Printable
I recommend passing around the Primary Substitutes Sign-up sheet during the Sunday School week as all of the non-Primary adults are gathered together. You’ll likely want to print at least 2 forms.
We have our Sunday School groups broken up into two separate rooms, simply because of the attendance size and room capacity. We sent one sign-up in the small class and 2 in the larger class.

Then the presidency can easily keep the list up-to-date and add/remove people, as needed. You can send a link to the spreadsheet to all the teachers and leaders so they can easily access the list to find their own subs, too!
