Fire & Bomb Threat Drill – Oct 5th

We will be having our second Fire Drill and a Bomb Threat drill on Tuesday, October 5th. In keeping with the public health protocols, the Fire Marshall has sent school boards the protocol for conducting drills during COVID-19. Each class/cohort will perform the drill separately to ensure physical distancing is maintained according to public health guidelines. A one-time alarm will ring and then each class will be prompted to conduct the drill through the PA system. If there is an actual fire alarm outside of our drills, all students would evacuate according to our fire plan.

Sacrament of Confirmation – Oct 6th

Confirmation for our current Grade 8s will take place on Wednesday, October 6th at 7:30 PM at St. Andrew’s Parish (this is the rescheduled date from last Spring). We congratulate all our Grade 8 students on receiving this sacrament and wish them many blessings as they continue in their journey of faith.

Cell Phone Use

A reminder that student cell phones are only to be used under staff supervision. They are for academic use or in case of emergency and a student needs to call home. In both circumstances, a staff member must supervise their use. Please do not text or call your child on their phone during the day. If you need to give them a message, please call the office and we will make sure they receive it. Thank you for your co-operation.
