On behalf of the staff, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your involvement as a volunteer parent at École Père Kenneth Kearns Catholic School. Your contributions as a volunteer make a significant and positive impact on our school and our students. We thank you for your support now and in the future.
To ensure a safe and caring environment for all of our students, the Elk Island Catholic School Division has a procedure in place regarding School Volunteers (AP490). It states that:
Prior to being involved in school activities, all volunteers who will be in contact with students
on a regular basis shall:
6.1 Provide a Criminal Record Check.
6.2 Provide a Child Intervention Check.
6.3 Sign a Confidentiality Undertaking (Form 490-2) and an Acceptable Use Agreement (Form 140-3).
The rationale for these requirements is to assist in the process of providing a healthy, safe place for our students. The Criminal Record Check and Child Intervention Check support this very important initiative. The confidentiality agreement respects that information received as a parent volunteer in the course of your duties shall remain in confidence and the acceptable use agreement outlines respectful use of technology within EICS.
There is no charge for a basic Criminal Record Check at the local RCMP station or for a Child Intervention Check at the local Child and Family Services Office.
Please stop by the office to pick up your forms.
Again, I wish to emphasize the valuable role you play as a parent volunteer. Your support is greatly appreciated throughout the entire year.
