Family Day Holiday: Monday, February 18

A reminder to parents/guardians that Mon. Feb. 18 is a Family Day Holiday. The school will be closed on this day.

Report Cards

Report Cards are distributed on Thursday, February 14th to all JK/SK to Grade 8 students. Kindly ensure that the tear-off section of the report card is signed, and returned to your child’s classroom teacher with the envelope. Please note that interviews are welcome at any time throughout the school year to discuss progress, next steps and celebrate student achievement. If you wish to have an interview with your child’s teacher(s), please indicate your request on the report card on the parent/guardian signature page.

Inclement Weather

In the event of very inclement weather, the Board may cancel school for the day. This decision will be announced on local radio stations, and notices affecting bus cancellations will be given between 6:45 A.M. and 8:30 A.M. Please listen to CHYM FM 96.7, Dave FM 107.5 or Oldies 1090 AM, KOOL FM 105.3, CKCO TV CHANNEL 12 for a decision about bus cancellation or school closure from the Waterloo Catholic District School Board. Also visit the board website: www.wcdsb.ca. If school buses are cancelled in the morning due to inclement weather, they are cancelled all day and will not pick up students who found other means of transportation to arrive at school.

Parents/guardians are the primary decision-makers regarding the safety of their child(ren). Although schools are open and buses are running, if parents/guardians feel that conditions are not appropriate for their child(ren) to attend school, they have the right to keep their child(ren) at home.

Outdoor Wear

Students are reminded to wear their coats when outside. If parents/guardians could kindly reiterate this message at home that would be appreciated.

Check in at Office Upon Entry

We respectfully ask that parents/guardians check-in at the office upon entry into the school regardless of the reason for the visit (drop off an item/lunch; speak to a staff member; escort child to class). We have a check in/sign in policy for the safety of all students and staff. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Photographs and Digital Memories

Parents/guardians are asked to be mindful when taking photos and/or videos of their children during school related events (ie. assemblies, sports). As we are part of the digital age, we ask that photos and/or video clips not be posted on the internet (You Tube, Instagram) out of respect and privacy of other families within our school community.

 

­­­Our Catholic schools…heart of the community, success for each, a place for all.

The call of the Waterloo Catholic District School Board is to educate and to nurture

hope in every learner to achieve their full potential to transform God’s world.
