RETRIEVING STUDENT BELONGINGS FROM SCHOOOL

We are currently working on a plan for students to be able to get their belongings that are in the school. We are also determining how library books and textbooks will be returned. We will let you know when we have finalized the details but rest assured, everyone will get their belongings back before the end of the school year. The Board is working with the Ministry and Public Health to ensure a safe plan is in place.

REPORT CARDS

All students will receive a report card before the end of the school year. We will confirm more details once they are finalized.

CHROMEBOOKS

The only students who will be required to return Chromebooks at this time are our grade eight students and any students who are leaving our school board. Your teachers will be in contact with further details.

MABEL’S LABELS MASKS

Mabel’s Labels is providing face masks for both adults (size 14+) and children (size 3-14 yrs) to help stop the spread of Covid-19. With the purchase of a Mabel’s Labels mask, you will help support St. Aloysius, as a portion of the proceeds will go directly back to our school. Mabel’s Labels also offers a variety of other products. Visit this link to support St. Aloysius. 
Mask Details: Non-medical grade mask, lightweight, soft ear loops and adjustable nose piece. Available in a variety of different designs.
Three layers of fabric: inner layer (keeps skin dry and comfortable), middle layer (prevents particles and droplets from contacting the face), outer layer (prevents particles and droplets from entering the mask)

#FINISHSTRONG

Our goal is to finish the school year strong. Next week we will be sharing a wellness board to promote our STARS to be active, healthy and happy. We encourage you to continue to connect with your child’s teacher and maintain those important relationships. Send us pictures and videos and share good news stories (dawn.butson@wcdsb.ca). We miss all our STARS so much and can’t wait to see you all again!

Have you seen the HOPE sign in front of the school?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stay safe,
