Summer Safety Program
May has been designated as the month in which our teachers will have a summer safety class before vacation begins. As we know children are more vulnerable during summer vacation. The Summer Safety Lesson is in addition to the lessons taught earlier in the year. I will be sending you a safety handout next week so that you are aware of how you can help your children be safe during the summer months. Another option is to go directly to the following website: www.la-archdiocese.org/org/protecting/safeguard.
Did You Know
Did you know that all Catholic school personnel in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles are screened for their ability to work safely with children, are provided information and training to help them recognize and deal with issues of child sexual abuse and are offered guidance and instruction on appropriate professional conduct with students? Likewise, all seminarians and candidates for the diaconate go through extensive evaluation and psychological assessment before entering formation. After ordination, priests and deacons receive ongoing training on maintaining the integrity of the ministerial relationship.
