Volunteer Information

Parents who volunteer with children, want to be a chaperone on field trips or a homeroom parent must complete all safe environment requirements & background clearances. After all safe environment requirements are completed, the applicant will receive a certificate stating that they have met the proper requirements and are then able to volunteer at school. A copy of each of these certificates must be sent or handed into the school office. These forms are kept on file to serve as documentation that each person meets the Pennsylvania and Archdiocesan requirements for volunteers.
