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​​​


Requirements for Volunteering at Eric Harvie School

Parents/Guardians interested in volunteering for Eric Harvie School must fill out the Annual Volunteer Registration Form – it is valid for the current school year. If their Police Information Check is not up to date, they must obtain new clearance, as outlined above. The cost for obtaining a police check is covered by the CBE.

Parent Volunteers & Room Parents

Eric Harvie School loves our volunteers! 

Parent volunteers are requested frequently by teachers on their blogs and through the School Council sponsored requests for volunteers – usually these are for more general requests to support school initiatives such as stamping and sorting resources, building learning support kits of materials, etc. We also seek parent volunteers to support classroom projects and learning initiatives, field trips, Fun Lunches, etc. The School Council will also seek support for Council initiatives such as Fun Lunches, special events, etc.

Each classroom has a Room Parent who will help coordinate parent volunteers for field trips and special events. This Room Parent will be provided with contact information for the parents in the classroom only.
