Requirements for Volunteering

Any adult that volunteers for our school, when children are present, must be fingerprinted for the Oakland diocese and must also complete the VIRTUS Safe Environment online training course (takes approximately 1 hour to complete).  Please see the instructions for completing both requirements:

Fingerprinting Instructions 

  • Contact John Miller at LiveScan Identity (510-795-8885) to set up an appointment to be fingerprinted. John is a vendor for the Oakland Diocese.
  • Take a copy of the fingerprinting form with you to the appointment (available at the school office) and take a photo ID with you.
  • John will not charge a fee, but you will need to pay $34 per person to the school to cover the cost for the processing of the prints. Please stop by the bookkeeping office to pay (preferably before your appointment).
  • School families will receive 2 service hours in return for the payment.
