A LENTEN PRAYER
Good and Gracious God,
You call your people back to You
May this sacred season renew
Our desire to live fully the promises
Of our Baptism and to love You
With a whole heart
Through more frequent prayer,
Acts of charity and fasting,
May we remember that loving You
And one another is the most
Important thing we can do.
In confidence, we ask these things
Through Jesus Christ,
our Lord and Saviour.

This community opportunity has been re-crafted to have School Councils view ideas for ProGrants in our breakout sessions. This will give access to council members to preview possibilities that are available and have proven successful at other schools.
STORAGE OF MEDICATION: Parents are encouraged to explore alternatives should a child require medication during the school day. Options include: at home rather than a school; at school by the parents/guardians; or at school by a person other than school staff member who is authorized by parents/guardians (e.g. caregivers)
If the medication must be administered by designated staff, the Principal shall, after agreeing to the request, obtain a signed Authorization for Storage and Administration of Medications form Part A/Part B from the parents/guardians and the supervising physician , whenever a prescription is initiated or changed.
The form can be obtained at the school main office or accessed in the link below:
Authorization for Storage and Administration of Medication
School Cash Online, an online fee payment system that will allow parents to pay with credit cards/debit cards for student fees and school items. For teachers and staff, it will mean considerable time saved when planning, processing and handling cash and cheque payments.
Registered parents will receive notifications when items and fees become available for their child. This will help reduce the amount of cash and cheques coming into your classroom as well as overdue and forgotten payments.
This is a great solution for our parents and our community. In order to make this successful, we need you support, if not already done, to register online. https://dpcdsb.schoolcashonline.com
The Online Reporting Tool
The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School board has developed a new way to help nurture a safe, caring and inclusive school environment. The Online Reporting Tool is intended for students in grades 3 – 8 who become aware of bullying incidents and negative behaviours. The student can simply ‘click’ on the link found on our school’s website to fill out the report. The report will then be directly emailed to the principal and/or vice principal and will be dealt with accordingly.
It is important to recognize that the Online Reporting Tool is an alternate reporting option. It is best practice to speak directly with a responsible adult at home and/or in the school.
ALL VOLUNTEERS on field trips must have a (Form A Vulnerable Sector) Criminal Reference Check. This is a free service for all volunteers. The form can be found here:
Please come by the school to have an Administrator authorize the Reference Check before taking it to the Police Station. Copies are also available in the office.
Student Registration is ongoing. For more information, parents/guardians should contact their school, visit the board website at www.dpcdsb.org, or call the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board at 905-890-1221.
Safety First when dropping students off at school
The safety of all children and staff must be considered as paramount at all times when dropping students off at school. Recent concerns from the community have been brought to City Councillor Chris Fonseca and referred to Traffic Safety Council for school site inspections. In addition, Peel Police have been patrolling Bough Beeches Boulevard to enforce violations to drivers who stop/park in the designated no stopping/no parking zones.
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.
