The most recent Virtus article is available for your reading and response. Please be sure that you are current with all Virtus articles.
An important part of our school community is our Protection of Children training. We have this training for both students and parents. Once parents have been through the initial training that Mrs. Martin and Ms. Jones conduct in August there is ongoing training called Virtus. Virtus is a monthly program of online newsletters on important topics to help you keep your children safe. This newsletter will come the first full week of every month. The Diocese of Jackson and Bishop Kopazc are very committed to the Virtus program. It is important that we empower our students with the knowledge they need to be safe. As parents, it is our responsibility to watch, act, and teach our children about means of possible abuse.
Each month you will need to read the news article. It is our experience that the topics have been relevant to current topics of concern for us. If you fall behind in reading you will not be allowed to participate in activities that include our children such as field trips, class parties, coaching, and sponsoring activities, and sports. If you have any questions about access to your account please let us know. We will be glad to help you, If you know your login you may visit the Virtus website at any time to log-in to your account. The site is www.virtus.org
You should read your article the week it is received. Mrs. Martin will post in principal updates when the article and comes out and when you should have it read. Thank you for your cooperation.
Extra Curricular Activities
If your child is involved in extra-curricular activities such as football, soccer, dance, basketball, etc., please let me know. I would love to attend these activities to show support. I may not be able to stay the entire time because I want to see as many students as I can. If you can let me know at the beginning of the week, I will mark my calendar and make every effort to be there. Thanks!
