Welcome back to the start of our second full week at St. Anne Catholic Elementary School!

We hope that you had a restful weekend and you are all settling into the new routines. Our entry in the morning is smooth, and students are finding their way to their classrooms easier. Please remember that our doors open at 8:25am once supervision begins and remain unlocked until the second bell at 8:40am when school begins. A rainy morning means heavier flow in our parking lots so please make sure you continue to drive cautiously if you choose to enter the parking lots, and exercise patience!

As of today, you no longer need to confirm your Daily School Screening with your child’s teacher. This was a Ministry of Education request for the first two weeks of school only. Therefore, the Daily Confirmation Logs that you were sending back and forth with the teachers is no longer necessary to complete. You do STILL need to complete a daily screening for your child(ren) before they come to school each day, you just no longer have to show proof to your child’s teacher.

Our Curriculum Night will once again be a Virtual Tour this year, and will take place on Thursday, September 23rd from 6:30pm to 7:30pm. Classroom teachers will be available that evening through their virtual platforms and will send out an invitation for you to join during the evening. There will be two scheduled presentations, with the first starting at 6:30pm, followed by a repeat at 7:00pm. Pop in to see what the classroom looks like, ask questions, and let your children and their teachers guide you through what a day looks like here at St. Anne!

Don’t forget to complete the Parent/Family Information Consent Forms electronically. 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 Reminders 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. New JK students have been assigned an OEN by the school. Please contact Mrs. Tharby at the school for your JK child’s OEN.
  • 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.

If you experience a problem submitting a form, please use a different browser or different device. If you have tried a different browser and device and are still experiencing issues, please send an email to

And finally, our Catholic School Council Nominations will close this Friday, September 24th at 4:00pm.

Information about our first Fundraiser for the year will be sent via email tomorrow, so keep your eyes open!

We thank you for all you are doing to keep our school safe and healthy!
