“May the light of our faith shine in all that we do and all that we say each day.”

Announcement:

Daily School Screening

Thank you to all our parents and guardians for providing a daily confirmation/log of your child’s School Screening. Starting Monday, September 20th schools will no longer need screening confirmation, however, it is extremely important that all parents/guardians continue to complete the Daily School Screening https://covid-19.ontario.ca/school-screening/ BEFORE students come to school each and every morning. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping everyone safe!

Any student or staff with signs/symptoms of COVID-19 MUST Stay at home/ Self-isolate / Be referred for testing for COVID-19. 

Arriving on Time: 

It is very important that students arrive on time for school in the morning. Students may begin arriving at 8:35 AM but not before. Please make every effort to arrive no later than 8:50 AM.  

School Textbooks and Library Books

Thank you to everyone who took the time to return school resources to us this week. We are still missing several textbooks and library books which would be quite costly to replace. Please have one more look around your home to see if you have any school resources to return to us, we would be most grateful!

Allergy Alert

Please be aware that St. Michael School strives to be a nut aware environment. We have students with life-threatening allergies to nuts and other allergens. No peanut butter or other nut products are allowed. Please check labels before sending items in school lunches and for snacks. Even a trace of nut oil from one child’s fingers to a desk surface can cause a deadly reaction. Please note that Wow Butter (soy product) is not allowed as well since we cannot distinguish between it and peanut butter.

Agendas

Students in Grades 1-8 have been issued agendas. Agendas are intended to provide families and staff with a means of regular daily communication. We would ask for your help in defraying costs by paying $5.00 for grade 1-3 agenda’s and $3.00 for grade 7-8 using SchoolCashOnline. This will be posted on Wednesday September 22, 2021.

Medical Perils

Please ensure you have returned the necessary forms for any medical perils (anaphylaxis, asthma, diabetes, seizure disorders, etc.) to the office along with any medication needed so we can update our files.
