Volunteer

Volunteers are an important part of the success of students.  Parents, guardians and adult family members are encouraged to volunteer on a regular basis in the classrooms, library, or office and, if possible, on field trips or at other special events.  The Calgary Board of Education requires volunteers to follow a registration process.  Read below for more information about registering for volunteering.  

All parents new to volunteering at the school must complete a parent orientation. You will be contacted by our Volunteer coordinator with dates and times once the school has a copy of your Police Information Check and the purple and pink school sheets.

Volunteer with Us

While COVID-19 Measures are in Place

In-person visitors and volunteers will not be allowed in CBE schools at this time. This includes guest speakers, sports-team coaches and artists in residence. Individuals are encouraged to communicate with the school through email or by phone. Currently, parent volunteers are not permitted in the school building. However, we are optimistic that we will find ways to work with parent volunteers later in the school year.​

Please visit our COVID-19 page for the most up-to-date information. Our plan is subject to change throughout the school year as more information becomes available.

We welcome volunteers in the classroom, on field trips and with certain tasks at school or at home. Certain activities or field trips would not be possible without the active participation of our volunteers. Contact us about ways you can volunteer with our school.

Visit the CBE website for more information on volunteering, including the required registration and Police Information Check. (Please note, guest speakers or visitors to the school, and parents/guardians assisting their own child only are not considered to be volunteers and do not require a police information check.) 

Volunteering for an Off-Site Activity

If you want to volunteer for an off-site activity, please keep in mind: 

  • Volunteers on an activity are considered representatives of the Calgary Board of Education and are subject to the same expectations as staff

  • Volunteers are subject to the requirements of CBE Administrative Regulation 5003 – Volunteers, which includes an application and a police security screening check

  • Volunteers are covered by the CBE’s liability insurance policy while performing their assigned duties

  • Volunteers are covered by WCB while performing their duties

  • Volunteers receive direction from and are accountable to the teacher-in-charge

Thank you @ABschoolFS for the breakaway lanyards for all of the students to use with their masks! Greatly appreciated by teachers and students! 👏 https://t.co/dqcsPvrbkP

RT @UsihChristopher: We work closely with AHS when dealing with positive COVID cases in our schools. Consistent with their direction, “if a student comes to school while infectious with COVID, our current approach is typically to require that all student’s classmates stay home for 14 days.”#WeAreCBE

RT @UsihChristopher: Important: Parents/guardians are required to assess students daily for symptoms of COVID-19 before the start of the school day using the daily screening questionnaire (checklist), available here: https://t.co/8Ma0f3SY62 Anyone who is experiencing symptoms cannot enter a school. https://t.co/YLWf6mf1iz

RT @albertateachers: Will you be wearing orange on September 30? #OrangeShirtDay #abed https://t.co/pfPftZ5XiT

RT @YourAlberta: To help keep students and school staff safe, public health measures include a screening questionnaire. Parents should go through this questionnaire every morning before class to determine if the child can go to school or needs to stay home: https://t.co/VqOYyq0f04 https://t.co/0WLbkygPOu

RT @yyCBEdu: Students registered for hub online will receive an email by end of day Wednesday with a teacher introduction, info about how and where to log in and more. Check https://t.co/ee2XFbs1qB for more details. #cbehub #yycbe https://t.co/7MiZG7UAE0
