During the months of February and March, students in grades K-8 have lessons in both internet safety and personal safety. We use materials from Netsmartz ( https://www.netsmartzkids.org/ ) and the Monique Burr Foundation/ Child Safety Matters ( https://mbfchildsafetymatters.org/ ) to meet Archdiocesan required objectives. ( http://www.archspm.org/sections/child-components/ ).

This is also a great time to remind all adults about the Safe Environment training required to volunteer with students at St. Michael Catholic School. This includes a live course called VIRTUS and a few online training modules, a background check, and a signed Code of Conduct. Before you are allowed to coach, work one- on-one with students, or attend field trips or overnight trips, volunteers must complete the "essential three" listed above.
