SAFE ENVIRONMENT TRAINING

Our school requires all staff, teachers, parent volunteers, and outside vendors to complete Safe Environment Training. As a community of faith it is our moral responsibility to safeguard children, the most important gifts God entrusts to us. 

CMG SAFE HAVEN

The CMG Safe Haven online training has replaced the previously used VIRTUS training. The training consists of 3 vignette style training videos that are approximately 60 minutes and will include a criminal background check that must be completed.  These trainings will be available in English and Spanish. Live trainings will no longer be offered, all Safe Environment training will only be available online.  Questions about CMG Safe Haven can be directed to Cathy Russell at crussell@staopcs.org.
