    SHUTTLE, DROP OFF & PICK UP, PARKING

    Even though the construction has mainly been completed around the school we request that parents continue to use the Community Hall shuttle service for drop-off and pick-up.  Our student’s safety is always our highest priority, and the continued use of the shuttle service will enable us to make sure there is appropriate staffing levels.  We will update you as to when the hall service will cease, and drop-off/pick-up will commence at the school. 

    We ask that parents do not park at the school in the morning or afternoon. We have increased our school staffing this year, with some of our staff starting after the school bell.  On numerous occasions these staff members, as well as our district itinerants, have had to park up at Mosi Bakery because they were unable to find parking at the school.  This issue should alleviate itself once our lower parking lot is open.  Stay tuned!

    SCHOOL BUSES – AFTERNOON

    Both our afternoon buses are at capacity.  With that, we cannot accommodate students changing their bus routes.  This includes students going to friend’s homes for playdates.  We have more than half our school population using the buses, so it is crucial that students remain on the buses that they have been registered for.


    PLES VOLUNTEERS - CRIMINAL RECORD CHECKS

    SD63 volunteers are required to complete a Criminal Record Check every three years.

    Please apply online to the Ministry of Justice at justice.gov.bc.ca/criminalrecordcheck and use Access Code UV53DWHBYX. Your Criminal Record Check will be sent to the School Board Office for review.  Alternatively, you are able to share the results of a previous CRC completed through the Ministry of Justice within the past three years.

    PLEASE NOTE:  The Criminal Records Review Program is implementing a new process for Electronic Identity Verification using the BC Services Card.  If you are using the BC Services Card to access the online service for the first time you will be directed to activate your card by video or alternatively you can do this in person through Service BC.  Once you receive notification from BC Services that the verification process is complete, you will need to return to the eCRC system to complete your request for Criminal Record Check with the Saanich School District.  Please see the eCRC User Guide and Frequently Asked Questions for more information.

    Applicants who do not have a BC Services Card can visit their catchment school office to complete a 'Volunteer Consent to a Criminal Record Check' Form.
