Important Reminders
From the Office of Child Protection:


I n order to volunteer at MBS School, the school child protection process must be completed. This includes four parts-a completed volunteer application, certificate of completion of online training, signatory page from the Code of Ethics, and a fingerprint background check. 

Please note that if you have been deemed compliant with the Parish for scouts, sports (grades k-4), etc. you are  NOT compliant with the school child protection process until you have completed the fingerprint background check. The fingerprint background check is an extra step required to volunteer in a school. The paperwork for the fingerprint background check is available through my office.

If you have any questions concerning your compliance, please contact Beverly Peterson at  or at  225-753-5526 . Thank you for your cooperation with this matter.

Parents, please do not go to the state police to be fingerprinted without the necessary paperwork to have the proper background check run.
