Labour Negotiations Update:
Our school will be closed to students on Tuesday, January 21, 2020 as a result of the recent announcement by OECTA of a province-wide, one-day full withdrawal of services. Although classes will be cancelled on Tuesday, January 21st, our school office will remain open for Advanced Kindergarten Registration on January 21st. Thank you for your understanding and for the support of our dedicated and wonderful staff here at St. Matthew Catholic School.
