This time of year is challenging for many families in our community. We would like to remind you of a support here in St Albert called the Community Village, located next to Canadian Tire. They work to support St Albert families through food hampers, free income tax support, rental assistance programs, utility grants and more. This year they are also offering Christmas Hampers for those who need a little extra to make this time of year special for their families. If you are in need please contact them HERE (Phone: 780-459-0599) . If you are able please consider donating. All donations stay within St Albert to support those in the community. More information can be found HERE.

If your child will be absent, please email or call 780-460-3728 (this is 24 hrs and you can leave a voicemail)

If a student needs to leave early, the office MUST hear from a parent/guardian. Please email or call the office and we will allow the student to sign out & meet you outside (or walk home).

If a student will arrive late, they are to sign in at the office. If we have been informed the student will be late, that will be an excused late. Without hearing from a parent, the student would be marked as unexcused.

If you have any questions, please ask the office.

Gator Gear!
