Important Details:

Name and address of your family doctor, if you have one. 

NOTE: You can still get tested even if you do not have a health card or a family  doctor

Please wear a mask before entering the school. 

Upon entering the school, use the hand sanitizer available at the door. Families must stay together. Please stay at least 2 metres away from  anyone who does not live in your home. 

You will not have access to any other part of the school.

Picture Days

Due to Covid restrictions, Picture Day is a bit different this year. Lifetouch has implemented comprehensive Picture Day safety protocols.

On Wednesday, March 24th, we will be doing Senior Kindergarten and Grade 6 Graduation Pictures. Robes will be provided and students are asked to wear a plain shirt, preferably white. 

On Thursday, March 25th we will start with Junior Kindergarten students to Grade 5. If there is not enough time to finish this day, or students are absent, the photographers will return on March 26th. While Picture Day may look different this year, your child’s safety remains the priority. 

Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten Registration is ongoing. We know that there are a few siblings who have not yet registered. Please check out our Board Website for further information. If you register by end of day today, your child will receive a Welcome Package.
