Safe Environment

Holy Family School understands the concern for our students, faculty and staff to be in a safe and secure learning environment. We have gone through many measures to make sure our students are safe throughout the school day so that learning is top priority. All our faculty, staff and volunteers are certified and trained through the diocese on these important safety issues.


All staff, faculty and volunteers are required to attend a VIRTUS training session. These training sessions combat sexual abuse of children in the Church. It is currently in use in over 80 dioceses in the United States.
