Clearances

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

Please select the applicable clearances below. Click on the VIRTUS Clearance Packet to open a new tab to download. The Employee and Volunteer Clearance Packets are both five pages, so be sure to read through all instructions thoroughly!

Once completed, return ALL clearance documents/certificates to the School Office. Office copies will be kept in a confidential file; please keep the originals for your own records.
