School & YMCA Day Care parking lot

A reminder to parents/caregivers that access to the school and YMCA daycare parking lot is restricted to school staff, parents of students with special needs and YMCA daycare parents.

Over the course of this week as we continue to supervise entry and parking, we have parents now entering the lot through the NO ENTRY end of the parking lot. We also have parents driving into or over the safety cones at the driveway entrance and along the “no parking” areas in the school zone. During the school day, we have parents parking in the fire zone and in the spaces reserved for those visitors with mobility challenges.

Please support our efforts to keep our school zone, parking lot and fire zone accessible for emergency vehicles and safe for students, and school and daycare staff.

Grade 8 Mount Mary Retreat Parent/Guardian meeting – January 10th @ 6:00 p.m.

There will be a Mount Mary retreat meeting in the Holy Rosary Learning Commons on Thursday, January 10th @ 6:00 p.m. Students should attend as well. We will distribute the Mount Mary package and share highlights about the retreat and set the dates for collection of fees. With the increasing cost of buses, the fees are under review and we will have a final cost for you in your package next week.

Should you not be able to attend, the package will come home with your Grade 8 child mid-week.
