NOTES FROM PARENTS
We require a signed note from a parent when:
• your child has been absent from school for any reason
• your child needs to leave the school for an appointment, etc.
• your child cannot participate in a specific activity
• your child cannot go outdoors during recess or lunch break
• someone other than yourself picking up your child early from school (early dismissal)
Once school has started, children who are late or who have to leave the school early MUST sign in or out at the office.
If your child is away for any reason, it is imperitive that an absentee note be submitted to the school indicating the reason of the absenteeism. The Ministry of Education requires a note from students who are absent. Failing to submit a note may jeopardize your funding from the government.
NOTIFICATION OF CAREGIVERS
If someone else is going to be your child(ren)’s caregiver/guardian, whether it is for one day or one week, please give this information to the school office. In the event of an emergency, it is extremely important that you notify the school if you are going to be away and someone else will be looking after your child(ren).
PARENT PARTICIPATION HOURS MUST BE COMPLETE BY MAY 31ST
An email went out on April 4th to families who had yet to complete their 40hrs of parent participation. The deadline to complete the annual required Parent Participation Hours is May 31st and it is fast approaching. Please ensure that you have completed the needed hours prior to May 31st. Any hours completed June 1st and beyond, will be credited towards the 2018-2019 school year.

Please continue to check for volunteer opportunities for this school year, they are posted on the Actives page of the St. Bernadette parent portal.
In order for your hours to be posted to your parent portal account, please ensure that you send in “ad hoc” request for each task you have not registered for or have been assigned to. Each corresponding registered task, assigned task and “ad hoc” request must be accompanied by documenting your hours in the Volunteer Sign-in sheet in the red binder located in front of the school office.
