Volunteer Requirements


At Holy Spirit School, the education of each child is a cooperative effort involving administrators, teachers, staff, parents and parishioners. We firmly believe that positive interaction with caring adults significantly improves our students’ achievement and models the behavior of serving others. We require parental involvement because we are committed to giving every one of our students this advantage for life.

We require that every Holy Spirit family volunteer a minimum of 40 hours throughout the year (May through April.) Although it is always preferable that families complete required volunteer hours, we recognize that sometimes this is not possible.  Hardships need to be discussed with the Administration and will be addressed on an individual basis.  If families are unable to complete the required 40 volunteer hours by April 30th of the school year, they will be invoiced $10 for each uncompleted hour.  

Before volunteering, any family member (18 and over) needs to complete the following steps:

  1. Fingerprinting (instruction attached below)
  2. Complete the online Virtus Safe Environment Training (instructions attached below) and submit the completion certificate to the front office
  3. Complete an Adult Volunteer Waiver and submit it to the front office
  4. TB Risk Assessment or TB test
