Clearances

The Diocese of Pittsburgh's Safe Environment Policy dictates mandatory requirements for anyone who will have regular contact with students. This includes coaches, parent volunteers, and Dining Hall monitors. Clearances need to be completed and turned in BEFORE any practice/game/event/etc. takes place.

Please select the applicable clearances below, fill out each according to instructions, and return ALL completed documents/certificates to the Main Office. Office copies will be kept in a confidential file; please keep the originals for your own records.

* Indicates clearance needs to be updated every five (5) years.
