School Update – Week of October 4, 2021

Ontario Catholic Graduate Expectations

This year, we will focus on the Ontario Catholic Graduate Expectations (OCGE) as a school community. Each month a student from each class will be chosen who represents the OCGE of the month. One award per class will be given to the student who demonstrates these traits throughout the month.

For October, we will focus on the OCGE of being a ‘Discerning Believer’. A discerning believer is formed in Catholic Faith community and celebrates the signs and sacred mystery of God’s presence through word, sacrament, prayer, forgiveness, reflection and moral living.

Daily COVID Screening

Parents/guardians/students must complete the Ontario School Screening Tool each morning prior to or upon arrival for each student.  Students will no longer be required to show/provide their classroom teacher confirmation of screening daily.

Screening Tool: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/school-screening/

Students only attend school if a “✅” is  obtained.   Students with COVID-like symptoms or who receive an “X” indicating “Do not go to school” must remain home and isolate as instructed.
