Dear St. Patrick Catholic School Families,

VOLUNTEERING AT ST. PATRICK CATHOLIC SCHOOL REQUIREMENTS
We will be allowing limited volunteers in the school this year. If you want to volunteer at the school, you
must complete the volunteer application which includes attending a Safe Environment Training
(SET)class. There are a few online trainings this month. Please see below.
Safe Environment Training Calendar
In addition to attending the SET training, all volunteers need to complete an application with the
Diocese of Raleigh. You can turn your completed application into the front office.

VOLUNTEER IN THE SCHOOL
The PTO works in conjunction with the principal. The organization provides support to the parents and
faculty of the school on behalf of the students. They organize fun activities at the school that go
beyond fundraising. The focus is on bringing the school and families together.
The SAC can be representatives of the school, church, and community. They do not need to be parents
of students enrolled in the school. The council members function in an advisory capacity only on
matters brought up by the principal or pastor. The council provides advice and support to the
administration.

SPECIALS COURSE STANDARDS
Special course standards were sent home on Friday. Please be sure to go over the packet, have the
children sign it, and return it to school by September 10, 2021.

DRESS CODE
Please make sure your child is wearing the correct uniform pieces. The uniform shoe must be a black
sneaker worn every day. They must be in their sneakers to participate in PE class. Please contact the
office if you have any questions.

home when they are not well. We are operating under the guidance of the North Carolina Health and
Human Services (NCDHHS) guidelines. The full COVID 19 Opening plan can be found here. If you have
