Dear Parents and Guardians,

Once again, we find ourselves pivoting to on-line learning for an undetermined amount of time.  This is a stressful time for all and we need to continue to be supportive of each other.  As before, I am truly amazed at the patience and understanding that everyone is showing as we navigate the challenges of these times.  St. Brother André is a wonderful and compassionate community.

If we continue to show flexibility and understanding we will get through this.  Continue to check your email for updates from the board, school and classroom educators.

Blessings to everyone and stay safe,

Sean Crookshank


Photograph Proofs

Proofs went home last week for the JK to Grade 5 students. Deadline to order is April 28th. The Grade 6 Graduation Proofs are at the school. If you need to pick-up please email or call the school to arrange. The deadline for Graduation Pictures is April 30th.  All picture orders must be done online. The pictures will be delivered directly to your home. If you have any questions, feel free to call Lifetouch directly at  613.748.0100 or mylifetouch.ca.

Daily Attendance

Teachers continue to take daily attendance in the morning and the afternoon. The expectation is that your child checks in daily at 8:30, our regular start time. It is a longer process virtually. We ask for your patience. If you receive a call and your child has logged on, just let the teacher know and/or email or call the school.  Phone messages are being checked regularly.
