• Parents are invited and encouraged to volunteer at the school and school-sponsored activities. Check with the activity organizer or your child’s teacher regarding best dates and times.
  • To maintain the safest environment for our students, CHCA requires ALL volunteers to be fingerprinted PRIOR to the first time volunteering. This includes classroom helpers, event and front desk volunteers, party helpers, coaching and theatre volunteers, field trip drivers (grades K-3), trip chaperones, and regular visitors to our buildings.
  • It also includes Gr 9-12 students who will have contact with minor children while they volunteer in a CHCA sponsored camp or activity.
  • The check is valid for 5 years.
  • While most background checks clear within 14 days, it can take up to 30 days for a background check to successfully clear; therefore, being proactive well in advance of the starting date of work, a camp or volunteer event is necessary to ensure you get the results back timely.
