Weekly Update for January 18

Catholic School Council Meeting Monday

  • Our next Catholic School Council Meeting will be on Monday, January 18 at 6:30 pm, and it will be conducted virtually. If you would like to attend the meeting please email Mrs. Dore-Anderson at dorer@hcdsb.org.

Attendance While Learning Online

  • During this period of remote learning, we continue to promote regular attendance, as it is important for students to remain engaged in their learning so they can stay on top of the curriculum and feel more connected to their peers while our school is closed. 
  • Attendance will be taken twice daily: once in the morning and again after lunch. If your child is not able to attend or participate in remote learning on any given day, please report his or her absence, as you typically would during in-person learning, through the SchoolMessenger Safe Arrival System:  https://www.hcdsb.org/parents/report-your-childs-absence/.
  • Our communication with one another during this time is particularly important, and we appreciate your patience as we check our absences daily. As you know, we will contact you through SchoolMessenger if your child is marked absent without a reason, and we will also make the necessary changes if you or the educator reports that your child has been marked absent when he or she is in class. If that has happened, and you need to let us know, please call the office and leave a message on the attendance voicemail, or email Mrs. Lupton at luptonn@hcdsb.org, and we will make the necessary changes.

Physical Education While Learning Online

  • As much as possible, and while respecting individual student needs and family circumstances, students will be learning across all areas of the curriculum, including Health and Physical Education, while online. As educators plan instruction for the next week, please review the information in the attachment about how to prepare your child and the learning environment so that he or she can participate in phys ed successfully and safely while at home.

Keeping Our Community Safe

  • At the moment, we are still anticipating returning to face-to-face learning on Monday, January 25. The government is currently scheduled to make an announcement regarding this timeline on Wednesday, January 20, so the school board will communicate with families any changes at that time.
  • In the meantime, we encourage all members of our school community to follow the directions in the stay-at-home order and the guidance from public health. Limiting contacts and unnecessary trips, as well as remembering to practice mask wearing, proper hand hygiene, and distancing, will help to keep our community safe and hopefully get us back in the building on schedule.

Spirit Wear 2020-2021 Deadline Extended Until Friday

  • Friday, January 22 is the last day to order your OLP Spirit Wear for 2020-2021! The amazing new design was done by one of our Grade 6 students, and we hope you like it!
