Good afternoon to our St. Anne families! We hope that you are staying warm and healthy!
There are not a lot of updates yet as we all wait for further information from the Ministry of Education as to when our remote learning will end, and we can be back in school. As soon as an announcement is made the Board will communicate next steps, and our school will follow up with specifics. Until then, hang in there and keep doing what you can to continue learning each and every day!
Local Love Red Day in Support of United Way! #Locallove is helping meet urgent and ongoing needs in the community. This organization is working to ensure that that those who have been made most vulnerable by the pandemic can access supports they need. Students are welcome to wear any red accessory, (t-shirt, socks, hat, hair accessories, etc.) to virtual class on Friday, February 12th. To help support the Red Day please consider making a donation of any desired amount towards United Way in recognition for all they do to support our communities. Donations can be made using School Cash Online starting February 8th through to February 12th.
During this period of remote learning, we continue to be flexible! Please make sure that you keep in touch with your child’s teacher if you have any questions or concerns and help reinforce proper online expectations. As we also follow the “stay at home order” at the school building, we need to communicate via emails as much as possible as we don’t have staff available to answer the phone at times. Please know ALL email addresses of staff can be found on our St. Anne School Website, under “Contact” and then Staff Directory. There is a lot of information posted on our website as well, so please bookmark this site for easy access: https://elem.hcdsb.org/stanne/ Thank you for your continued support and partnership. Now, more than ever, ongoing communication between home and school is key to your child’s success and well-being.
And with everything happening online, we are still proceeding with our Fundraising initiatives, so don’t forget if you visit COBS in Headon Forest (safely with masks of course!) mention that you are from St. Anne! Our FlipGive app/site is also still available to purchase items for yourself from various places! Both COBS and FlipGive give us percentages back every time!

Please continue to follow the advice from Halton Public Health, by washing your hands, wearing your masks when required, and staying 6 feet apart from others if you must go out for essential reasons. Together as a community we can overcome this! Stay home and stay healthy!
