Daily School Screening
- Thank you for your continued diligence in completing the COVID-19 school screening for each child every day. Completing the screening, wearing masks, maintaining proper hand hygiene, and distancing are all ways we can help to keep the children in our care and our community safe.
- You can also help us keep our whole community safe by following the Halton Public Health guidelines over the long weekend and into the fall. Please see the attached letter from Dr. Meghani about gatherings.
No School Monday
- Monday, October 11 is Thanksgiving so the school will be closed for the holiday.
- We will look forward to seeing students back at school on Tuesday, October 12.
Terry Fox Walk Friday
- OLP will have its Terry Fox Walk on Friday! Classes will stay on school property and walk around the different stations at scheduled times. We are helping our students learn more about Terry and his mission. When we walk, we usually ask for donations to the Terry Fox Foundation; however, we will not be asking students to bring in cash or cheques this year. Instead, we would encourage you to donate online at the link here: http://www.terryfox.ca/OurLadyofPeaceESOakville.
Save the Date for School Pictures!
- We have booked school pictures for Wednesday, October 20! Our photographer will follow our public health protocols to help keep our students safe.
Oct 14 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Oct 21 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Oct 29 all day
- We will celebrate Halloween at OLP today! Students will need to wear their regular cloth masks to school and may not wear costume masks either as a substitute or in addition to their cloth masks.
- Students will be able to wear costumes that are:
- easy to move in as they will wear their costumes all day including outside for recess.
- have no weapons or toy weapons
- not overly scary or gory (appropriate for all students)
- respectful of all cultural heritages
- When choosing a Halloween costume with your child, you may find it helpful to consider and discuss the following questions:
- Is my costume making fun of or is it offensive towards a group of people, their culture or religion?
- Does my costume reinforce jokes and stereotypes about certain groups, cultures, or religions?
- Am I altering my skin colour, facial, or body features to make them darker or like a particular race, ethnicity, or cultural group?
- Am I dressing up as a culture or borrowing from a religtion that is not my own or is not part of my background?
- Do I understand and respect the history or tradition of the culture that I am borrowing my costume from?
