St. Roch Catholic Secondary School Important Updates

  WELCOME TO ST. ROCH

Visit our Regional Arts Page for more information


Catholic Community Culture and Caring School Climate Parent

The Ministry of Education's focus on Safe and Accepting Schools: Promoting a Positive School Climate requires that all elementary and secondary schools across Ontario implement a student and parent school climate survey every two years. As a Catholic school board, our fundamental understanding of the inherent human dignity of all people, helps us frame this requirement.

All parents and guardians of elementary and secondary students across Dufferin-Peel are invited to complete an anonymous and voluntary Catholic Community, Culture, and Caring School Climate Survey. This online survey has been developed to provide an opportunity for parents and guardians to express feedback regarding their perceptions of safety, inclusion, and communication with their child's school. Information collected from this survey will help inform schools about what is needed to make school a better place for all students and parents in Dufferin-Peel. The survey will be open from February 6, 2017 to March 6, 2017.​

If you are ready to start the survey, please click  Parent Survey​


REGISTRATION FOR THE 2017-18 SCHOOL YEAR
Grade 8 students who do not attend one of our Catholic feeder schools and live within our boundary are asked to complete a pre-registration package and submit it, along with all necessary documents to the Guidance Office during office hours.  Grade 9-11 students who live in our boundary and wish to attend St. Roch in September are asked to complete apre-registration package and submit it along with all necessary documents to the Guidance Office.  Requests for Religious Accommodations Please click here for information regarding Religious Accommodations. 


NEW OSAP REMOVING FINANCIAL BARRIERS TO COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY

 

If your child is currently in Grade 12, you should know that applications are now open for college and university programs. The last date for university applications is January 11th. College applications for the fall term should be submitted before February 1st.

 

Your child may benefit from financial assistance for postsecondary education from the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP). As part of the most significant reform of student assistance in North America, the government of Ontario is removing the financial barriers to attending college or university.

 

If your family income is under $50,000, your child’s tuition is covered. Even if you earn more, the new OSAP is still there to help with generous grants that will make sending your child to college or university more affordable.

 

The Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development has launched a new online calculator to help students and their families find out quickly and easily whether they qualify for free tuition or other grants and supports from the province. We encourage you to find out more at ontario.ca/osap.

INSUREMYKIDS PROTECTION PLAN

The Insuremykids Protection Plan is an inexpensive and comprehensive way to protect your family from financial hardships they may face as a result of an accident. During grade assemblies information was provided to students about the Insuremykids Protection Plan.  If you are interested in the protection plan for your son or daughter please click the following link Insuremykids Brochure/Form


CHILD AND FAMILY SERVICES ACT

In April 2000, the Child and Family Services Act was amended and a new law came into effect concerning our obligation to report concerns about children who may be "in need of protection". As is the Board's practice, we will continue our duty to ensure your child's safety this year.

SAFETY FIRST WHEN DROPPING STUDENTS OFF AT SCHOOLThe 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.
