Parents/guardians of all students are asked to participate in the volunteer program which affords them the opportunity to become an integral part of the operation of the school. This program substantially reduces the cost of education at Sacred Heart School. Volunteers work in the kitchen, library, lunchroom, and on the playground. They occasionally help in the classroom. Parent/guardian volunteers also help transport students to field trips.
In accordance with a decision made by the United States Catholic Council of Bishops, the Diocese of Allentown has implemented a program for the protection of the children and youth we serve. As a Diocesan School, we are committed to supporting this mandate.
