Safe Environment Program

“As Christian adults, we have a moral and legal responsibility and are entrusted by God with the Spiritual, emotional and physical well-being of children. As they participate in activities within or sponsored by our Diocese, it is our responsibility and commitment to provide an environment which is safe and nurturing.”

The Diocese of Dallas has adopted a Safe Environment Program and mandated its implementation in all parishes, schools and Diocesan entities. This program ensures that St. Joseph Parish and School, in compliance with Diocesan guidelines, is providing a healthy and safe environment for our children. All persons interested in volunteering in any way at the school (i.e. room parent, coach, cafeteria helper, field trip chaperone, etc.) must first be screened and cleared through the program.  Click on the New Volunteers, Returning Volunteers, or VIRTUS tab to the right for more information.
