Parents/Guardians: We LOVE our parent/guardian volunteers!! As we get further into our year and sports ramp up, volunteers are a crucial part of our athletics program but there is some paperwork involved.

The result of your new CRC will automatically be emailed directly to our Clerical Assistants at PSS.

2) Drivers Abstract (required yearly) – These can also be obtained online through the ICBC website (www.icbc.com/driver-licensing/getting -licensed/Pages/Your-driving-record.aspx ) or call Westland Insurance (604-894-6432)with your DL #. They will fax your abstract directly to PSS.
