Ms. Rachel Gemo's Notes
Head of Parish School (PK-12)
Dear all - We are having BluePoint Security coming on Wednesday at 1PM to do a security training with all faculty and staff. We will be in Kittler Hall.
WE NEED YOUR MOBILE PHONE NUMBER for the system. Please provide it to us by 8AM on Monday if you can using this Office Form below. If you don't get to it by that time, please provide it anyway. Blue point might not get it in time to enter your device into the system. We'd love for all staff to have their mobile number in the system so you can see how the system works
So please, complete the following. It should take only a minute or two. This is for anyone who works in any capacity at St. Ben's.
Coming Soon - Mandatory Sexual Harassment Training
The Archdiocese of Chicago is rolling out a Sexual Harassment Online Training Module for all Archdiocese employees. Below is an overview of the process and timing.
The Archdiocese is implementing mandatory sexual harassment prevention training for all employees. Training will be provided via Virtus, which administers our Protecting God’s Children training. Rollout of the sexual harassment prevention training will began this summer with Pastoral Center staff and continue in successive waves of audiences:
- Early-August: Principals
- Late-August: All school employees
- Early-September: Parish employees
An email notification will be sent from Virtus to you and each group (as noted above) – once you receive the Virtus notification, please consider using it as a prompt for further communication to your teams.
If you haven't logged into Virtus in a while, you may want to do that. The monthly bulletins should be done in an ongoing fashion.
