Let’s Keep Our Children Safe This Summer!
All teachers, staff, and volunteers in the Diocese of St. Petersburg who work with children must undergo fingerprinting and criminal background checks. Diocesan guidelines and abuse prevention training programs currently in use emphasize the importance of parents’ knowing who has access to their children at school and other Church-sponsored activities.
Summer is here, and parents should remain vigilant regarding who is granted access to their children. Make sure camp counselors have completed appropriate training criminal background checks. And be sure that you know the camp’s daily routine and that no camp activity results in a child being left alone with one adult.
All activities should be supervised by more than one adult, and the camp should be open to unannounced drop-in visits from parents.
If you wish to know more, you may call: Michael Craig, Safe Environment Program Manager at (727) 344-1611, ext. 5377.
