Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) Check and SAFIS Fingerprinting

We’re glad to see you’re interested in being a volunteer for the Squantum PTO.  For the safety of the students, we require volunteers to submit to a name-based criminal record check (CORI). As we start to think about increasing in person events and potential need for volunteers please make sure your CORI and SAFIS (fingerprinting) information is updated in our school database.  Please email if you need more information or need to confirm your volunteer status.  Thank you!

How to get your CORI Check and Fingerprinting

It's easier that it seems and is truly worth it.

CORI Check Form can be filled out and returned to school. Forms need to be updated every 3 years.
