Volunteer Information

Volunteers are important to the success of many school activities. At the beginning of the school year a Volunteer Sign-Up List goes home for parents to consider. Volunteer work changes throughout the grades. In the lower grades, parents are very hands-on in the classroom. In the higher grades, volunteering may be in the library, at a dance or on a field trip. Under Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy legislation (FOIP), all volunteers are required to commit to confidentiality and fill out a Confidentiality form prior to volunteering at school.

Rocky View Schools requires that all volunteers provide a criminal background check. Background checks are considered valid for 5 years, with an Annual Statutory Declaration. A letter is available at the office specific to East Lake School and is needed to apply at the RCMP detachment.

Volunteers are also required to sign in at the office and wear a nametag for security reasons and in the event of a school evacuation. Parent Volunteers are organized through School Council and the classroom teachers. Volunteering is very rewarding and connects parents to their child’s school experience.
