As our volunteers have contact with our students, every volunteer is required to participate in a Safe Environment and Code of Conduct Program for children.  Our volunteers are able to complete their program requirement using the online Virtus training program.  The training takes approximately 45 minutes. 

Follow the instructions below:

Print off your completion certificate when received through email after your training has been verified and return a copy of the certificate to the school.

ALL VOLUNTEERS WHO HAVE CONTACT WITH CHILDREN MUST COMPLETE VIRTUS TRAINING BY JANUARY 1, 2018.
