BACKGROUND CHECK, VIRTUS AND FINGERPRINTINGEvery school family will be volunteering within the school at some point this year whether it is driving for a field trip, working in a classroom or supervising on the playground. The Diocese of Gaylord requires each volunteer to have a cleared background check and Virtus training completed before volunteering. Background check forms and Virtus instructions are also available in our school office.
If the volunteer will be in contact with children for more than 8 hours in one month they also must be fingerprinted. If you have not completed the background check form or Virtus online training please do so as soon as possible. If it has been more than five years since you have completed a background check for SFX it has expired and we need to run a new one. Likewise, the Virtus training will need to be renewed every 5 years.
