OLP Yearbook 2019-2020

  • We are asking for additional photos from the 2019-2020 school year – from both in-school events like Joy Day and from homes during distance learning – for our yearbook.
  • We are also inviting interested students to submit yearbook cover designs.
  • More details about criteria and how to submit both photos and covers can be found on the school website here: https://elem.hcdsb.org/ourladyofpeace/2020/05/olp-2019-2020-yearbook/
  • All submissions are due by 4 pm on Friday, June 5.
  • Yearbooks will be available to order through SchoolCashOnline on Monday morning. Unfortunately, we will not be able to accept cheques or cash due to the school closure. We anticipate that the yearbooks may arrive a little later in September this year than they usually do, but we will still look forward to seeing the results!

Update on School Uniforms

  • Due to the school closure, we will not be able to run our June uniform exchange and sale this year. We will continue to follow the direction of public health and will hope to be able to run the sale near the start of the 2020-2021 school year.
  • Our school uniform supplier, ISW, has shared some information about how they will be adapting to better serve you during the closures. Beginning in June, they will be:
    • Updating their online services to include a feature to assist new families with sizing and first-time orders.
    • Offering virtual appointments to families to assist with ordering.
    • Providing live chat on the website to ensure families are receiving instant answers while shopping online.
    • Fitting sessions will be available to new families by appointment only.
    • Extending store hours to accommodate fitting appointments for new students
  • We have attached the ordering form, which includes the school code, more information about how to order online, and the flier for their June sale for your reference below:
