There are so many great activities coming up at Seton this year: holiday parties, “Seton’s Thanksgiving dinner,” “Santa’s Workshop,” “Relay Day,” and more. We would love for you to be a part of these special days with your child/children, but we need completed clearances and forms filed in our school office.
This year, all volunteers, who work with children, whether considered “regular” or “occasional”, will need to obtain clearances. The descriptions and the requirements of each type of volunteers are as follows:
Someone who volunteers for a couple events throughout the school year.
Someone who has interaction with children/youth on a regular basis such as field trips, retreats, or to be a room parent, you must complete the requirements for a regular volunteer.
