“ALL VIRTUS SESSIONS ARE SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO THE CONTINUED MINNESOTA STATE RESTRICTIONS ON PUBLIC GATHERINGS. Please contact the safe environment coordinator at your Parish or school for further information.”
A key to our commitment to promoting safe environments in our parishes, Catholic schools and communities is for all persons in positions of trust in regard to minors to fulfill the Essential 3 (E3) requirements. If you are a parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle and plan to volunteer in any capacity (coaching, classroom parties, field trips, Jr. Achievement, etc.), you must complete the E3 as required by the Archdiocese.
The first step is to complete the following form: VFORM 1 Volunteer Application and Release. This needs to be completed and returned to the school. You may send this form to school with your child or email it.
The next step is to follow the 2018 Registration Instructions for New Users. You will need to go to www.virtus.org and register for a Live 3 hour Virtus session. There are several locations to choose from and a class is offered at nearby locations almost every day.
Last, you will need to fill out the 123-B form and turn it in to the school office.
You will also need to follow and complete all steps in the instructions prior to volunteering at school. We appreciate your time that you generously share with our students and your participation in the Enhanced Essential 3 to make our school a safer environment for all.
Thank you for helping to protect God’s children, particularly the most vulnerable among us!
