Holy Cross School is a proud school in the Archdiocese of Washington (www.adw.org). As such, we are subject to ADW policies and procedures.
Please review the Archdiocese of Washington’s policy on child protection: http://adw.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/13policy-child-protection.pdf
“Protecting God’s Children” is the mandatory child protection training for all Archdiocese of Washington employees and volunteers who have substantial contact with children. You will also hear this training referred to as “Virtus training.”
Any volunteer job that interacts with the students during the school day and/or on school property requires the volunteer be Virtus-trained and the paperwork be on file in the school office. This includes MOST VOLUNTEERING OPPORTUNITIES at Holy Cross School.
You can begin the VIRTUS registration process at VIRTUS.org.
