HRM Weekly Update- Oct. 26

“But the Lord stood with me & gave me strength” 2 Timothy 4:17

Dear HRM Parents and Guardians,

Let us keep our Grade3 students in our prayers as they received the Sacrament of First communion last Tuesday. Thank you to Ms. Holden and Ms. Johnson for joining our students and their families.

Thank you for your support with our Halloween activities- we appreciate all of your donations and we are super excited for this upcoming week;

Thank you for your continued support to ensure the COVID guidelines are followed;

Daily Self-Assessment of COVID-19 Symptoms: Staff are to monitor self and students for signs/symptoms of COVID-19.  All Staff and students who are experiencing new or worsening symptoms consistent with COVID- 19 must go home/stay at home and seek appropriate medical attention as required, including getting tested for COVID-19. Take the October 1st Update – COVID-19 Screening Tool for Children and follow the recommendations shared with the new changes highlighted.  

Halloween Update: We are very excited for this upcoming week. Please refer to the email sent by Ms. Murad and Mrs. MacLeod for details. All themes are listed in the calendar below as well. Many thanks for your continued support- we sincerely could not have done this without you! We are still accepting donations until Friday November 6th.

Lunch time Expectations: This is a friendly reminder that although students are allowed to go out for lunch students and parents/guardians are not allowed to bring in any foods or drinks back to the school. This has been highlighted in our Return to School Plan and we thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Expected Uniform Attire: ISW is the uniform provider for our school board.  Clothing from ISW is the expectation for students.  Jogging pants and legging are not uniform items. Although pants do not necessarily have to be purchased from ISW, they must be navy blue dress pants. Please contact your child’s teacher or the office if you have any questions or if you need further information.

Daily Attendance: Attendance continues to be a very important part of your child’s academic experience. We ask that you continue to report your child’s absence using the Safe Arrival App. If you know of an absence in advance, please feel free to report it in advance as well.

Update from Public Health- School Immunization Program: Planning for school-based vaccine clinics for the 2020-2021 school year continues. This will include current grade 7 students, as well as current grade 8 students that missed their Hepatitis B and HPV vaccines due to cancellations in the spring of 2020. Families can continue to view or submit immunization records or regularly visit to receive updates or learn about immunization.

10th Annual HCCEF Evening with Bishop Crosby – Virtual Edition– Wednesday November 4, 2020 – 6:30-8:00pm: The HCCEF Evening with Bishop Crosby is always such a wonderful gathering of the Halton Community. Although we will not be able to meet in person this year, we can still gather virtually as a community.

Highlights of the evening include: A Reception with friends at your virtual “table,” Musical Entertainment by HCDSB students, Recognition of Bishop Douglas Crosby’s 10th Anniversary of his installment as the Bishop of the Diocese of Hamilton, Keynote address by Bishop Crosby.

We have seen a 375% increase in the number of HCDSB students helped from March to September compared to the same time last year. HCCEF programs are funding solely by our fundraising initiatives (i.e. events, donations, grants, corporate support).

We want to be able to continue to say “yes” to supporting low-income HCDSB students and their families with basic necessities, because education directly influences students’ life chances – and life outcomes. Every child deserves the opportunity to succeed. We need your help to do this.

Wednesday November 4, 2020 – 6:30-8:00pm- For information visit the HCCEF Event Page, email or call
