Reminders & Information:

  • PA Day February 14th: A reminder that Friday, February 14th is a PA Day and there is no school on that day.
  • Family Day: A reminder that Monday, February 17th is Family Day and there is no school on that day.

  • Eco Team: On Thursday, February 6th Lumen Christi will be participating in National Sweater Day.  We will be lowering the temperature to conserve energy.  Staff and students are encouraged to wear their favourite, school-appropriate, sweater to school over their uniform.  Note: this is a uniform day.
  • Kindergarten Registration: A reminder we are accepting registrations for the next school year.  Information about Kindergarten registration can be found here: https://www.hcdsb.org/Programs/EarlyLearning/Pages/default.aspx
  • Attendance: A reminder that as a school we are monitoring student attendance.  We strive to work in partnership with families to help ensure that your child is at school regularly.  We will be communicating with parents when we start to notice a higher number of absences.  The purpose of our initial communication is to make families aware of the number of absences and to offer support in ensuring that students are at school regularly, as well as offer support for students in catching up on missed work. Please note that for absences greater than 8 days a letter may come home informing you of the number of days absent and offering support to ensure students are at school regularly. Additional information can be found in the attached document.  Attendance Info Sheet (stoplight)
  • Parking Lot Safety: A reminder that students should not be climbing and playing on the snowbanks on the edges of our parking lots at our busy entry and dismissal times.  Please remind your children of this so we can keep everyone safe.
