Family Information/Consent Electronic Form
As you know, at the beginning of each school year, parents and guardians are asked to complete a hardcopy information/consent form for each child enrolled in our school.
Beginning this year, we will be collecting this information electronically, and are asking parents/guardians to complete the form online.
Complete the Family Information/Consent Electronic Form!
Parents are asked to complete the form, which may be accessed HERE. The form should take you no longer than 10 minutes to complete.
If you already submitted a consent form, no further action is required.
Important Notes Before Completing the Form:
- If you have more than one child enrolled in an HCDSB school, please complete a separate form for each child.
- Only one parent/guardian is required to complete a form for each child.
- You will need your child’s Ontario Education Number (OEN) to submit this form. The OEN can be found on a recent report card.
- Please ensure you are submitting your child’s preferred name or the name you provided at registration.
- The form can be completed using a computer, smart phone, or tablet.

Thank you for completing the Family Consent/Information Electronic Form.
Please note: Hardcopies of the Physical Education Consent are going home with students on Friday, September 10, 2021. Parents complete and return the blue copy to the school with your student(s).
For the health and safety of our students and school community, it is strongly recommended that all elementary students remain at school for the full duration of their lunch periods.
As we limit visitors to our school throughout the day, lunch drop offs will not be permitted during the school day.
Parents and guardians are asked to provide their child(ren) with lunch in the morning before students enter the school building.
Considerations for Lunch Prep:
- Lunches should be prepared as individual meals and snacks.
- Nut Butters, Nutella and Wow Butter are not permitted in school lunches.
- Personal items should be clearly labelled with each student’s name.
- Sharing food items will not be permitted.
- Garbage will be collected and disposed of at school, however, students are to bring home recycled items.
- Reusable water bottles are encouraged.
Thank you for your understanding as we limit the number of visits and contacts to our school community to protect the health and safety of our students and staff.
Health and Safety Protocols
Ensuring the health and safety of our students, families and staff continues to be our highest priority at Our Lady of Victory during the 2021-2022 school year.
We wanted to take a few minutes to remind parents and guardians to review the enhanced health and safety protocols that are in place this school year to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
Please take a few minutes to review the health and safety protocols posted under Maintaining Safe & Healthy Schools online for more information.
Daily COVID-19 Screening
Parents and guardians are reminded that monitoring for symptoms of COVID-19 in your family is essential in keeping our school communities healthy and safe:
- The COVID-19 School and Child Care Screening Tool must be completed by all students, parents/guardians and essential visitors prior to entering our school each day. This screening tool is also available in multiple languages if needed.
- Individuals experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19 as identified in the screening tool, must not attend school and should follow the guidance provided in the screening tool.
- Absences must be reported for students not attending school.
Confirmation of the daily screening must be provided to your child’s classroom teacher in one of the following formats:
- Email results to classroom teacher;
- Show “pass” confirmation on a personal device;
- Show printed copy of the screening tool indicating the current date and a “pass”; OR
- Complete Confirmation of Daily COVID-19 Student Screening Log, which students can bring and drop off at school each day.
Wearing of Masks at School
- All HCDSB students (Kindergarten – Grade 12) are required to wear non-medical masks/face coverings at school.
- Students are expected to bring their own masks to wear on student transportation and at school. Non-medical 3-ply masks will also be made available for students if needed. Students should bring an additional mask to school in the event that their mask gets wet, damaged or soiled.
- Masks must be worn indoors, including hallways, during classes, on school buses, and in the Before and After School Program.
- Masks may be temporarily removed indoors for eating and drinking at lunch or break times. Mask breaks will also be provided.
- Students are not required to wear masks outdoors, but 2m distancing should be maintained between cohorts as much as possible.
- Where they can be worn safely based on the activity, masking is encouraged for engaging in physical activity.
- Use of Non-Medical Masks or Face Coverings in Schools – Tip Sheet
Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding. Stopping the spread of COVID-19 is a community effort, and we will continue to work together so that we can ensure a safe, healthy and happy learning environment for our children.
First Holy Communion
Congratulations to our current Grade 3s who are making their First Holy Communion on Saturday, September 11, 2021 at Holy Rosary Parish. Parents are reminded to follow the Public Health guidelines and limits on the number of family members in attendance. OLV staff cannot be there in person, but we are with you in spirit. May God bless you on your special day!
Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful for the many blessings that we have such as good health, family, friends, shelter, and food. We will continue the initiative with our Thanksgiving Food Drive. As a school community, we have decided to support those in need through the Food for Life Food Drive. Food for Life has grown into the largest food recovery program in Halton Region bringing fresh and nutritious food to those in need. This year we will be able to collect non-perishable canned/boxed food.
Let’s work together as a school community to provide families in need with food this Thanksgiving.
