Opportunities to volunteer in your child's classroom or on field trips will be presented throughout the year by your child's teacher.
Protecting God’s Children
As mandated by the Diocese of Rockford, Holy Cross Catholic School volunteers who work with children under the age of 18 must participate in the Protecting God’s Children Program. The program is approximately three hours and must be completed before any volunteer work can be started at HCCS. This applies to lunchroom supervisors, field trip chaperones, room moms, coaches, classroom volunteers, etc. Opportunities for attending the program will be available throughout the year.
As mandated by the State of Illinois, all volunteers will need to complete a background check before working with children at Holy Cross Catholic School. A form will need to be completed and returned to the Principal. The current cost is $16.00, payable to the State of Illinois, which is to be absorbed by each individual volunteer.
