Dear Parents and Guardians
As we enter the third week of Lent, we prepare for our Lord’s Resurrection at Easter through prayer, fasting and almsgiving. As described last week, our Lenten initiative this year is to participate in the 24 Hour Fast for HCCF from March 30 – 31st. Staff, students and parents are encouraged to choose something to fast from for the twenty four hours and make a donation to the Halton Catholic Children’s Fund in the name of St. Anthony Cares. We thank those who have already donated. We have reached $435 of our $5000 goal. Donations can be made through CanadaHelps.org.
We offer congratulations to our Grade two students who received the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time on Saturday. We thank the priests of Holy Rosary parish as well as our teachers, Mr. Mahaney, Ms. Mahon, Mrs. Sajko, Mrs. Marzilli, Ms. Sacchitiello, and Mrs. Johnston, from the parish, for assisting parents in preparing our students.
Please refer to Holy Rosary Parish website for parish information as well as a live stream of the mass for those who are unable to attend in person during Covid-19.
- We ask that students bring clean spare masks to school to enable them to change wet and soiled masks during the day.
- Please remind children to stay away from water diversion ponds as the ice is thin and dangerous.
- Students who arrive at the school after the 9:15 bell are asked to enter the school through the front door as the other doors are closed and locked at that time.
- Please continue to complete the daily self-assessment. Students who exhibit one or more symptoms of Covid-19, along with their siblings must stay home until one of the following occurs: the child with symptoms has a negative Covid test and has improving symptoms, an alternate diagnosis is diagnosed by a medical practitioner, the student exhibiting symptoms isolates for 10 days and siblings 14 days.
We will be recognizing Down Syndrome Awareness Day by wearing mismatched socks on Monday, March 22nd as the official day is on Sunday. We apologize for any confusion caused by the misprinted date.
