Holy God,

We thank you for Jesus, who cares for us and teaches us how to live.

May everything we do and say show you our love.

Amen

Catholic School Council

On Monday, October 5th, 2020 will be our first virtual council meeting of the 2020/2021 school year at 6:30 pm via TEAMS.  Thank you in advance for your dedication to our students and the school community. 

Student Achievement Evening

On Thursday, October 15th, 2020 SJOA will be hosting our Virtual Student Achievement Evening.  There will be 2 live sessions offered: 6:15 pm – 6:45 pm and 7:00 pm – 7:30 pm.  More information will be sent out this week. 

Reminders

We would like to remind parents/family members that there are No Dogs Allowed on school property or on our playground as these areas are for students and staff only. We would also ask that parents/guardians please wear a Mask when on school property.  We strive to maintain this practice to ensure our students and staff remain safe.  We respectfully ask that you follow our established rules of dropping off or picking up your child at designated areas. Students can be dropped off/picked up by the corner of the kindergarten fence areas as well as our Kiss & Ride area. This will help to avoid confusion during these busy periods and assist our staff to identify you as parents during drop-off and pick-up. Thank you for your cooperation.

School Pictures Postponed

LifeTouch is committed to maintaining student safety and will continue to closely monitor and comply with all Board and provincial orders related to COVID-19. Given the current safety measures in place, all school pictures have been postponed until further notice.

Self-Assessment Screening Tool

The Ontario government has released changes to the COVID-19 School Screening Tool used to monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 in children.  Please use the October 1st Update – COVID-19 Screening Tool for Children tool before leaving for school each day.
