Parent volunteers who will be with SHS students unsupervised by a teacher must have a Police Information Check* done. This applies to parent volunteers who are drivers, library workers, teacher helpers outside of the classroom, and those helping with certain extra-curricular programs such as Mini Hoopers Basketball.
Note: There is no charge for this process for school volunteers (who are residents of Delta) however you must bring a copy of the SHS cover letter to proove your affiliation with the school.
*The police information check involves a criminal record check and vulnerable sector check. More information (including detail about the required identification documents) is available at the Delta Policy Department website: http://deltapolice.ca/services/infocheck/
Instructions for residents of Delta**:
- Download this SHS cover letter and take it in person to the Delta Police Department in Ladner.
4455 Clarence Taylor Crescent
Delta, BC V4K 3E1
Business Hours: 7am-7pm, open 7 days/week
- At the police department you will complete consent forms, and submit those along with the SHS cover letter, and present the required government issued identification (ID). Read about the accepted forms of ID here: http://deltapolice.ca/services/infocheck/
- When the results are ready your document will be mailed to your personal address, unless you specify that you want to pick up your document in person at the police department.
- When you receive your record check document, please bring the original document to the school office.
Thank you for your attention to this matter and for all the hours of volunteer work you give to the school!
**Residents of other municipalities will need to apply with the police department in their municipality of residence, and may need to pay a fee for the background check despite your applying as a volunteer at SHS. Richmond residents, please take this SHS cover letter addressed to the Richmond Police Department.
