A private Montreal elementary school is moving to quell public fears following media reports about Karla Homolka doing some volunteer work there.

The couple have three children together and briefly moved to the Caribbean before moving back to Canada in 2016. On her way back to her auto, she used her purse in an attempt to block the view of her face. Though Bernardo was sentenced to life in prison, Homolka was only sentenced to 12 years for manslaughter.

Fazioli said he's heard Homolka also helped supervise a kindergarten class trip to the Montreal Science Centre. "No one with a criminal record will be allowed to volunteer in any capacity on school grounds".

Parents at the school first became aware of Homolka's presence on campus after a neighbourhood man passed out leaflets about her crimes.

"The Quebec Conference of Seventh-day Adventists and the administration of Greaves Adventist Academy are committed to providing quality education and enriching learning experiences to its students", the statement read. "In no way is it an issue for the community".

According to local reports, Homolka's children attend Greaves Adventist Academy in Montreal's residential Notre-Dame-de-Grâce neighborhood.

'It is protocol for all of our schools across Canada, and most of the world, to do background checks, not only on teachers, but volunteers as well as clergy.

"We do not want her here", she said. "If she calls you, don't go near her and call me, ' because I don't trust the school".

In the meantime, he said Homolka shows no sign of giving up. She also once brought her dog into a classroom so the students could pet the animal.

Kristen French, 15, was abducted as she walked home from school on April 19 1992. "It's really awful that they would allow this".

It's clear why parents aren't happy about Homolka's presence, but school officials insist there's nothing to be anxious about.

"It's really unacceptable", Deligne said. The school told CTV that she was never alone with children. "And there could be a sequence of events that could come into play that could trigger her psychopathy".

Deligne was told that she too would have to find another school in September.

When approached, she tried to shield her face from reporters and stated: "I don't have nothing to say".

In the May 17 interview, Bouzy said the school had not received any complaints.

Homolka was released in 2005 after serving her full sentence and has since changed her name a number of times.
