VOLUNTEER DRIVER FORMS

Due to a new requirement by ICBC, volunteer driver forms are required to be completed by any parent that volunteers to drive one or more students to an OLS school event.  Only one form is required per driver per year with a copy of a driver’s license and insurance papers.  Please come to the school office to complete a form if you have not already done so.  Thank you.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO BRING STUDENTS HOME QUICKLY AFTERSCHOOL TO ALLEVIATE CONGESTION AROUND THE EXIT DOORS AND IN THE PARKING LOT.
