Volunteering & Criminal Record Checks- We welcome volunteers in our classrooms and around our school, however in keeping with district policy, and in order to keep our students safe, we must ask you first to obtain a Criminal Record Check. Criminal Record Checks can now be obtained online free of charge by visiting: justice.gov.bc.ca
Please use Access Code: 4TMWP35NBQ
When complete, the results will be emailed to the school directly. There have been circumstances where the applicant has been asked to print the application and bring it into the school to be faxed in. This DOES NOT mean there is a problem with your application, but rather a glitch in their system.Thank you for taking the time to fill this out and thank you for volunteering at our school!
