VIDEO AND PHOTOGRAPHY:

SAFE ENVIRONMENT PROGRAMS:
The Diocese of Lake Charles mandates criminal background checks and annual Safe Environment certification for ALL ADULTS supervising minors. Students are taught the SAFE & SACRED CHILDREN’S LEARING PROGRAM each year the basic vocabulary and understanding of what it means to guard one’s own well being and those around them. They are taught to recognize abuse in all its forms, and how to report it. While this program is not intended to intrude on personal modesty boundaries, sometimes the subject matter brings forth sincere questions from the students. Parents will be given a copy of discussion materials to continue the conversation with your student.
If you would like your child to be exempt from the program, please ask for an “Opt out Form.”
Our classes go into the church regularly and should be dressed appropriately. No oversize tank tops, low cut, spaghetti straps or midriff revealing shirts. No indecent language or images on clothing.
