Criminal Record and Vulnerable Sector Check Requirements

Please remember that you must have a criminal reference check if you would like to volunteer at the school. This includes assisting with field trips. The office staff will provide you with a letter to take to the OPP detachment in Lindsay (Highway 35 between Colborne St and Kent St).

When your application has been processed, you must pick up your criminal background check from the OPP and bring it to the school. Once your criminal reference check is on file at the school, you have the opportunity to complete a simple offence declaration each subsequent school year.

Please note: if an offence declaration is not completed each year, you will need to reapply for a criminal background check. The initial criminal background check process takes time, so if you would like to volunteer for field trips later in the year, it is a good idea to start the process now.
