It is an important part of St Luke School & Archdiocesan policy to require certain safety measures for school volunteers. This includes parents, grandparents, and relatives. If there is a possibility that you may be volunteering at the school or driving on a field trip sometime during the school year, we encourage you to take care of these requirements now. Your teachers will be grateful!
please contact carrie edwards if you require assistance or have questions.
before working with students
Virtus Training (aka "Safe Environment Training") is a mandatory class that must be taken every 3 years simultaneously upon the renewal of your background check:
Initial Class (in-person training) - Please follow this link to sign in or register. At the beginning of your new user registration, please select Seattle Archdiocese. You will also be prompted to electronically sign all of your policies and submit your background check at this time also. Please note: No social security number is required, you will not be able to enter it.
Triennial Refresher (online, every 3 yrs) - If you have already taken the initial "Protecting God's Children" (Previously "Called to Protect") class, you only need a short online refresher course. Log into www.virtusonline.org, enter your information, then click submit. At this time you will be prompted to submit a new background check as well. Also, please be sure to update your profile as necessary, identifying all locations at which you work or volunteer (eg: parish and school). Please note: Virtus will send an email to your email address on file to remind you when it is time renew your information. If you need assistance please contact Carrie Edwards.
