Healthy Snack Program--We Need Your Help

For many years, we have run a healthy snack program that gives all students access to nutritious snacks every day. This program is able to run thanks to the generous support of Brant Food for Thought and volunteers from the community.

We are in need of a Food Program Coordinator for this year. Responsibilities of the position include: setting the weekly snacks, ordering food and coordinating volunteers for food preparation.

If you are able to help us out, please contact the principal (Ms. Lytle) at 519 442-4163.

Police Checks

Grand Erie District School Board policy requires a current police check (within the past 6 months) for every volunteer. The police check must be updated every two years. If you do not have a recent police check, please come into the office for a letter to bring with you to the OPP office. You do not need to pay to have the check done.

Volunteers who drive students for out of school experiences, in addition to having a current police check on file at the school, must also complete a form at the office to confirm a minimum of $2 million liability insurance coverage.

Signing In

It is important for the safety of our children that we know who is in the building at all times. All visitors must check in at the office each time they arrive and when they leave. Volunteers are visitors in the school. You will be provided with a lanyard identifying you as a volunteer to wear while you are in the building. Before you leave the school, you sign out and hand in your lanyard.

Parents who volunteer to escort a group for out of school experiences are accepting responsibility to model and support proper behaviour so that children can learn. In order to not detract from student learning, we are not able to have volunteers bring siblings along. Staff will select volunteers and match parents to groups.
