School Open House and Opening Mass on Thursday
Our school open house will be held on Thursday, September 12th, from 4:30-6:00pm. This will be a great opportunity for parents to learn about the class routines, expectations, and the exciting curriculum that will be covered in your child’s classroom this year. We hope that many parents are able to attend this event.

Vulnerable Sector Checks for Volunteers
Volunteers working with students in the OCSB must complete a vulnerable sector check. This includes parents and other volunteers taking part in field trips, those working with students in schools, and those volunteering at events where they may be in isolation with students even for a brief period of time (eg., meeting in a small area to distribute food/beverages).
