Westmount School Protocols
We encourage family and community members to become involved with our school and its activities. As needs are identified we will be seeking volunteers and invite you to participate. Please note that Foothills School Division policy requires all volunteers to complete a Volunteer Registration Form (Form 490-1), sign a Volunteer Offence Declaration Form (Form 490-3) and sign a Confidentiality Agreement Form (Form 490-2) prior to assisting in school. This ensures that all information related to the classroom and students is treated in a confidential manner. If you're likely to exceed 10 hours of volunteering during the school year, a vulnerable sector check will be required. The RCMP offer a reduced fee for this check if it is being completed for volunteering. In order to receive this reduced rate you will need a signed letter from the office. Please stop by to pick up the letter or contact us to have one sent home with your child.
It will be necessary for all parents and volunteers who provide student transportation to carry $2,000,000 Bodily Injury and Property Damage Insurance on their own vehicle and to complete a Volunteer Driver Form (Form 553-1) each year. Volunteers must show their driver’s license and insurance information at the front office to be verified. We appreciate your help in transporting students and thank you in advance for your support.
