FINGERPRINTING/SAFE ENVIRONMENT TRAINING
All volunteers who work directly with children on a regular basis (including driving for field trips or sports events) must be fingerprinted through the Diocese of Orange and complete an online Safe Environment training course. The course training link and instructions are available below or are available in the Front Office. After the course is completed, please print out the certificate and turn it in to the school office.
 
Please contact the Front Office for fingerprinting forms, details and locations. Volunteers may only begin working after their fingerprinting is cleared and their Safe Environment certificate has been received by the school office. Fingerprinting may take a few weeks for complete verification to be received by school administration.
