SCHOOL DAY HOURS
Beginning July 1st, the Diocese of Toledo implemented a new on-line, one-stop registration program so that any adult who volunteers with our youth (at St. Michael School and through all parish activities) can complete their needed Protecting Youth requirements through an on-line system called VIRTUS. This requirement pertains to, but is not limited to, adults who volunteer with children in the lunchroom, Discipleship/FROGS, youth group, field trips, classroom helper, coaching, retreats, 8th grade trip, Scouts, nursery, prayer groups, choirs, festival, servers etc.
Effective immediately, any and all adults whose ministry includes any contact with children are expected to complete three (3) on-line components of Protecting Youth registration at VIRTUS which remain on-file for 5 years.
(1) reading and signing an electronic expectation form,
(2) completing a social security number based background check ($25) (through Fastrax) – which replaces fingerprinting (and was previously $50-$60). The parish has generously offered to cover the $25 fee for volunteers if that is necessary.
(3) completing Protecting God’s Children Online Awareness Session 3.0 (also available in Spanish) at no charge, which will take about 75 minutes (formerly the Shield the Vulnerable course was $6).
(If you had fingerprints and/or the Protecting Youth course completed within the last five years, those should still be on file, and should not need to be repeated for 5 years but you will still need to register on the VIRTUS system.)
Please contact Susan Campbell our St. Michael Compliance Officer as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org if your service in our parish includes ministry with children to learn all you need to complete your registration.
We'd like to have all this on file by December 31, 2016.

St. Michael School needs volunteers! We have volunteer opportunities all throughout the school year, everything from running photo copies, lunch duty to special events. Please complete a volunteer form and return it to the school office. Thank you for your help!
ST. MICHAEL SCHOOL
St. Michael School follows the general policies required by the Ohio Minimum Standards. Our school accepts, approves and adopts the local school policies established in this year’s edition of the diocesan Principals’ Handbook, except as specifically modified or extended in this School Handbook, based on our local needs and circumstances.
EXTENDED DAY PROGRAM
It is our desire to provide a service to the working parents of children who attend our school. The program is to be an extension of the regular school day and is structured and organized, but flexible enough to allow students some FREE time as well as an opportunity to begin their homework. We will provide a secure, cheerful environment for the children by offering supervision, snack and times for play and work. Our objectives include the elements of enhancing a positive self-esteem, developing social skills, and teaching lifelong values such as responsibility, organization, and cooperation. A ratio of one supervisor per 14 children will be adhered to.
DEFENDER DAY CAMP
Summer Day Camp for students ages KR – 5th grade. Program runs Monday – Friday from 7am to 5:55pm.
