Leadership Message

Dear Parents/Guardians,


Thank you for your recent participation in our Three Way Conferences. This touch point between school and families is so important to set the intentions/goals for the rest of the school year. We are starting our Fall Break tomorrow which runs from Wednesday, November 10 - Tuesday, November 16th.


On Sunday, November 21st we will be celebrating Catholic Education at the 11am mass at St. Francis Xavier Church. All are welcome to attend and join in this celebration. This year our theme is "Called to More" and students and staff have been rising to the call. We will continue to focus on bringing good to the world through our actions and words.


We hope you get some rest and relaxation over the next few days and some quality time in with your loved ones.


See you next week!


Mrs.Nanias

A Prayer for Remembrance

Ever-living God,


We remember those whom you have gathered from the storm of war into the peace of your presence; may that same peace calm our fears, bring justice to all people and establish harmony among the nations, through Jesus Christ our Lord.


Amen

We are giving out a large number of masks each week. Please send a mask/face covering or two with your child each day they come to school. If your child comes to school without a mask/face covering multiple days in a row we will be calling home for someone to bring them a mask/face covering.

School Attendance

A reminder for all families that the AHS Daily Assessment needs to be completed and actioned each morning prior to coming to school. If your child is experiencing symptoms please choose:


  1. “Flu-like symptoms”

  2. “other illness or injury” If they are experiencing symptoms that you do not deem to be flu-like, or your child has a medical appointment.

  3. “parent excused.” If your child is experiencing no symptoms at all, please choose this. The parent excused absence should only be chosen if you are keeping your child home for a reason that does not pertain to a medical issue. (i.e dance competition)


The child’s attendance is a parent’s indication that this has been completed and the child is able to come to school. Once this messaging is sent out, we should not normally be following up with parents who select parent excused as an absence code. Asking for a medical note for a pre-existing condition should also only occur in rare cases in consultation with admin.


Our guideline for how we handle students with presenting symptoms during the day is the AHS Daily Assessment. If you have any questions, please speak to your admin.

SCHOOL PATROL-in front of school

Our School Safety Patrollers are out in front of the school before and after school now to help our students and parents get across the road safety . Please be sure to use the crosswalk when crossing your child. Crossing the road between buses can be very dangerous and lead to serious in


Also please make sure your child is using the cross walk at the back of the school on 54th Ave. It is a busy road and the using the crosswalk is the safest way for your child to cross the road.


****PLEASE STAY CLEAR FROM BUS LANES AT THE BEGINNING OF OUR DAY AND AT THE END OF OUR DAY*****
