TRANSPORTATION for Fall 2020 - IMPORTANT

Parents are required to submit a Transportation Request Form and complete payment in order to secure a spot on the bus for their child this fall. To do this please submit a Transportation Request Form available through your Parent Portal under the “Forms & Fees”, then choose “SchoolEngage Student Forms”.

Once the form has been submitted it will be processed by the Transportation Department and a fee will be assigned to the student’s account. Check your child’s account through your Parent Portal for Transportation Charges. You can choose to pay the entire fee now or set-up a Payment Plan. Either option will secure a spot on the bus for your child.

If you need assistance with this process, please contact Mrs. Roberts at 780-467-7972.

Thank you

CARDS FOR SENIORS

Cards for Seniors

For any families who might be able:

Father Jim has suggested a possible community service project for those who like to draw pictures or would consider making a card for seniors in the community:


Father Jim has put out a request for our younger students to write cards for those elderly people who are shut-in at this time.


Students are asked to drop off their cards directly at OLPH church where they will take care of delivering them.


Father Jim said there will be a box labeled "Cards for seniors" at the church for students to drop off and the deadline is May 29.
