New family online directory coming soon!
Divine Providence School is excited to announce that we are implementing a new app, DirectorySpot, for our School Directory. You will now be able to access the Divine Providence School directory right from your smartphone and it will always be updated with the latest information!
The app will contain parent names, home phone, home address, parent email addresses and student names, grade levels and teachers. The app is very secure and only parents and staff of Divine Providence School will be granted access. Each user will logon with their authorized email address and will set their password. If you would like more information on the security features, please click on this link.
If you would like to “opt out” of the app and NOT have your family information included, please just send an email to Mrs. LeTourneau by August 31, 2021. The data and users in the app can be updated at anytime throughout the year, so you can always opt out or opt back in later.
This year we are giving all Divine Providence School Parents access the electronic app, and it is accessible from an iPhone, and Android or on the web. Once we have all of the data loaded, you will get an email with instructions on how to download DirectorySpot and set your password.
To be able to volunteer at our school, you must complete all Protecting God's Children Requirements. (See below) All volunteers must wear a mask, except if supervising outdoor recess.

Growing with God: Safe and Sacred
Developed to meet the needs of dioceses, parishes, schools, parents, and children, Growing with GOD: Safe and Sacred™ is a multi-faceted, innovative K – 8 child safety and family life program that is solidly grounded through Church teachings and the Catholic faith. This practical and systematic approach to child safety and social and emotional development is based on the belief that protecting children from abuse is the shared mission of families, churches, and communities. Children are empowered to respond to troubling and potentially dangerous situations using the strategies and techniques they are taught as part of the program and to see themselves as children of God, inherently deserving of respect and care.
This program fulfills the keeping kids safe requirement form the Archdiocese of Chicago. If you do not want your child participating in the program, you need to let the school office know as soon as possible.
