School Mass Sept. 28

Families, we are looking forward to our Opening School Mass at St. Mary’s Parish on Friday with Father Freitas. If you have not already signed the permission form for the bus, please do so on School Cash on Line as Mrs. Duffield uploaded it last week. For those who do not have the permission form signed for the bus, we will be walking as this permission form has already been signed at the beginning of the year. We look forward to celebrating as a Catholic School Community. Thank you for your assistance with the form.


ClassDoJo Site

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Due to issues WCDSB has had with student privacy and security related to some online educational applications, WCDSB IT Governance Council has been vetting apps to ensure their use follows our third party apps policy.

The WCDSB IT Governance Council has decided to block the ClassDojo site as the app does not meet the Board’s minimum requirements for using a third party application in safe manner.

If you have any questions, please contact the school, or the Privacy Office 519-578-3660 ext. #2381.

Thank you for your support.
