Background Checks for Volunteers – Keep Yours Up to Date!

Dear Parents,

Many of the parent volunteer opportunities at school (eg Scientist in the School) require that parents have a police reference check beforehand.  It does take some time for the record check to be completed.  In preparation for next school year, fill out the application (available in the office) as soon as possible.  The Home and School Association will cover the cost of these police checks for parents.  Information about how to be reimbursed for the cost can be found with the application in the office.

Police reference checks do expire.  Each year you must complete an Offence Declaration with the school or you will have to re-submit another police reference check.   Save us the additional fees!   If you had a police reference check last year, please see Elizabeth Mankiewicz, our Vice Principal, to declare your criminal-free past year and keep your police reference check valid.  

Thank you,
Howard School
