After School Program

The After School Program begins once school is dismissed and goes until 6:00 p.m.  Children participate in recreational activities, are served a nutritious snack daily, and have time for homework.

Fee assistance is available.

School Bus Information

Parents can access their child(ren)'s bussing information by visiting www.stopr.ca  

This is the best way to keep up to date regarding bus routes, late busses, or cancellations. Parents will be required to enter their child's OEN number (found on their report cards) to get their child's specific bussing information.

At St. Philip School, the only students eligible for bussing are Kindergarten and Grade 1 students who live more than 1.0 km from the school, and Extended French students who live beyond 2.0 km from the school.

This means that if your child will be in grade 2 in Sept. 2014, then they will not be eligible for immediate bussing in September.  Their only option will be to apply for a courtesy seat, and the earliest possible granting of courtesy seats will be in early October.  Similarly, all students who applied for courtesy seats in 2013-14, will have to apply for courtesy seats again in September 2014, and the earliest possible time for bussing to begin is early October.

 

Students who are not eligible for transportation may apply to the Principal through the courtesy rider policy for permission to ride the bus. If you wish to be considered for a courtesy seat, please indicate this in writing to the Principal stating the name of your child, grade and address, via the “Courtesy Seat” application available in the Office in September. 

OPENING DAY PROCEDURES

 

Please note that the first day of classes for the 2014/2015 school year is on Tuesday, September 2nd at 8:30AM. Please review the following procedures in preparation for the first day of classes for the new school year.

 

• Parents of Junior Kindergarten children will be contacted by their child’s teacher regarding their child’s specific start date. They do not begin school on the first day.

• Kindergarten children will assemble in the kindergarten play area prior to the 8:30AM bell. The Kindergarten teachers will gather the children into their classrooms.

• Grade 1 – 8 students will assemble in the pavement area at the back of the school. Teachers will have grade-level posters indicating where students are to assemble in the yard. At this time staff will have finalized class lists and they will gather students by grade level and inform students of their teacher and classroom location.

• In case of rain, Kindergarten students will gather in the Kindergarten classrooms, and students in grades 1-8 will gather in the gym. 

The connection between the school and parish is central in Catholic education.  Pictured above are our principal, Mr. Hilton (left) and Fr. Carlos, pastor of Cristo Rei Parish (right), involved in one of the many social justice projects shared by St. Philip School and Cristo Rei Church.
