St. Catherine of Siena School and the Archdiocese of San Francisco take the safety and well-being of our students seriously.
Fingerprinting; Volunteers who work regularly (i.e. coaches, art in action coordinator, men's and women's club presidents and treasurers, etc.) with students must have a Live-Scan record on file with both the San Francisco Archdiocese and the school office. The Live-Scan must be completed prior to working with students. Parents/Guardians who volunteer and need to be fingerprinted will be informed by the school of this requirement. The school does not cover the cost of the Live-Scan.
Training: The Archbishop has mandated specialized training for parents, coaches, and staff working with students. “Virtus” is the training program that must be completed in order to work with students. Once Virtus training is complete, a copy of the certificate must be sent to the school office for record keeping. Students are also required to go through specialized Virtus training according to their grade level and this is done at school.
Emergency Contacts: All emergency contact information must be updated in Beehively. Records must have the names and phone numbers of at least two English speaking individuals who are readily available to pick up students in case of illness or an emergency. Please update information if there are any changes on your emergency contact form during the year (address, telephone number, work information etc.). In case of an emergency, children will only be dismissed to individuals listed on this form. There will be no exceptions made to this policy. The medical Information section must also be complete, updated, and accurate.
