Weekly Update – Feb. 3rd – 7th

Labour Negotiations Update:

Our school will be closed to students on Tuesday, February 4th, 2020 as a result of the recent announcement by provincial OECTA of a province-wide, one-day full withdrawal of services.  Although classes will be cancelled on Tuesday, our school office will remain open if parents require assistance with anything. Thank you once again for your understanding and for the support of our dedicated and wonderful staff here at St. Matthew Catholic School.

For more information, please visit the Halton Catholic District School Board’s website: Labour Negotiations Update.

Student Illness:

As we continue through the winter, the rate of student illness will be elevated. We respectfully ask that students remain home if they are too ill to be at school or their illness poses a risk to others.  If students are recovering from sickness, but are still not well enough to go out for recess, we ask that they remain home.  Unfortunately, additional supervision cannot be guaranteed for students who are not well enough to be outside for recess. We thank you for your understanding.

NEW Kindergarten Registration:

Parents still looking to register their children for the Kindergarten Program are asked to first register ONLINE and complete the Kindergarten Questionnaire. Our parent information night will take place on April 21st, at 6:30 pm. Please click here for more information and links to register: Kindergarten Registration Information (September 2020)

Family Skate – Sunday, February 23rd:

We will be having our annual family skating event on the afternoon of Sunday, February 23rd at Glen Abbey Arena from 2:00 – 3:30 pm (blue rink). This event is now open on our cash online system and will remain open to families until Thursday, February 20th. The cost is $15/ family. We look forward to seeing you there!

Have a great week!
