Volunteer Forms

Please be advised that if you are planning to volunteer for offsite events requiring supervision of small groups, a criminal record check and child intervention check is now required. Please allow adequate time as some applications require up to six weeks to process. These applications are valid for three years and will be kept at the school. Click the links below.

Volunteer Procedure AP-2-21

The criminal record check fee waiver forms are available at the office or online if you are planning to volunteer in this capacity. This is to keep all of our students and staff safe.  Thank you for your cooperation. 

In order to be a certified Volunteer, we need the following forms returned to the office.
