CATHOLIC EDUCATION CENTRE PROGRAM 2014-2015: EMMANUS

 

 

St. Marguerite d'Youville School community welcomes the new Emmaus Program. This Ministry of Education funded program connects William Osler Health Centre and the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board. It provides alternative learning opportunities for students who require specialized support. Just as Christ ‘walked with’ the disciples on the road to Emmaus, Emmaus is intended to ‘walk with’ students, responsive to the educational needs of young people for whom the regular pattern of school and/or family life is interrupted for a variety of reasons. As on the Road, the Emmaus Program is intended as a transitional program and period of time to enable students to move toward success within a regular school program. We continue to work hard at building an inclusive school community, creating ‘paths of joy’ where all are welcome.

new SCHOOL BUS INFORMATION

 

Bus Information for Parents & Students from STOPR website www.stopr.ca

 

Check the website with your child's OEN number, which is located on their schedule, to determine if they are eligiblefor bus transportation to St. Marguerite d'Youville. If they are information about pick up times and routes will be available. If they are not eligible, you can obtain an application for courtesy seating. Courtesy seating is available starting the week of October 06th on a first come first serve basis with grade 9s being the priority. Please note there will not be any new bus routes added. Your child will have to accept, as a courtesy, one of the existing bus routes. There is no guarantee, according to STOPR,that any courtesy seats will become available.

It is important to note, that  only students of separate school supporters are eligible for transportation service. Courtesy transportation is not available on special needs vans. Courtesy seats can only be considered on regular existing bus routes and stops and must not result in any additional costs for the School Board. In other words, no additional bus stops or route path changes will be made for “courtesy riders.” As of October 13th, we are currently in the process of reviewing and considering courtesy seats. 

Courtesy seating is available on a first come first serve basis with grade 9s being the priority. We currently have over 60 applications, in priority sequence by date received. Please be patient as only STOPR can determine how many courtesy seats are available.  We are unable to grant courtesy seats that are already assigned to eligible riders.  Please continue to check the STOPR website on a regular basis as mentioned above.  You will receive a phone call once your application is accepted.

CHANGES TO THE IMMUNIZATION OF SCHOOL PUPILS ACT (ISPA) July, 1 2014

 

Recent changes to the Immunization of Schools Pupils Act (ISPA) require all students to be immunized against meningococcal disease. Students 12 years of age and older must have the meningococcal ACYW-135 vaccine or a valid exemption. It is estimated that approximately 20% of Peel secondary school students have not had the vaccine. Peel Public Health is offering catch up clinics in secondary schools for those students who did not receive the vaccine in grade 7/8. Letters will be mailed to students who require the meningococcal vaccine with information about the requirements and encouraging them to attend the clinic.

SAFETY FIRST WHEN DROPPING OFF STUDENTS AT SCHOOL

 

The safety of all children and staff must be considered as paramount at all times when dropping students off at school.
The number of serious incidents related to traffic circulation at the front of the school and in the Kiss and Ride area during morning arrival and afternoon dismissal has risen. These incidents include vehicles entering the site in the wrong direction, parking and pulling out of no parking zones, parking in bus lanes, to name a few.
It is imperative that all parents and guardians who drive their children to school adhere to the traffic circulation plan and comply with the traffic and parking signage on the site. It is equally imperative that all drivers follow the direction of staff managing the traffic circulation on the school site.
Thank you for your consideration and co-operation with this important matter.
