Virtus Training & Parent Volunteering
The safety of our students is of the utmost importance. We follow the Madison Diocese "Protecting God's Children" program with all staff and volunteers who come in contact with our students.
Virtus Safe Environment Program
The Diocese of Madison requires and conducts a criminal background check of all volunteers having contact with children. Additionally, the Diocese of Madison requires all volunteers to attend at a “VIRTUS: Protecting God’s Children” awareness session before volunteering in school activities. This includes but is not limited to: coaches, classroom volunteers, field trip chaperones, playground volunteers, etc. There will be no exceptions to this policy. VIRTUS sessions are held periodically throughout the school year. For upcoming sessions and more information, go to the Diocesan website link: click here
Volunteering at Sacred Hearts School
We encourage parents to be active in their child’s education. Volunteers are essential to our school and we ask families to volunteer as much as possible. It is recommended each family give an annual minimum of 15 hours of volunteer service to the school in some capacity. Volunteers are enlisted to help in a variety of areas including in the library, on the playground, with fundraisers and athletics, school committees, Home & School programs, in the school office and in the classrooms.
