In order to volunteer in the classroom, drive on field trips and/or chaperone students in any way, each volunteer must be up to date with the Protecting God’s Children class (formerly Called to Protect class), current background check and signed Policies and Procedures form on file.
If you have not taken the Called to Protect Class to date, please log on to https://www.virtusonline.org and register for one of the Protecting God’s Children classes that is offered. There is one coming up right here at St. Thomas More on October 4 at 1 pm in the Renggli Room. There are other dates and times offered at different locations if one of those is more convenient for you. Please pick what works for you and attend the class. You must fill out the Background Check form and the Policies and Procedures pamphlets and forms on-line as well.
If you have already taken the Called to Protect Class, please log on to https://www.virtusonline.org and check your status. You simply log on, click on the Training tab and check for the phrase at the top of the page that indicates that you need continued training or possibly the Background Check form or Policies and Procedures pamphlets done. If you do need to take one of the required training bulletins, you will click on the Training Tab and there will be a page to read and a question at the bottom of the page to answer and submit.
Please let Barb Hennessey, our Office Manager, know if you have any questions. It would be very easy to get this training done right at the start of the school year!
