Important Notice Regarding Designated Catholic School
Parents of Grade 4 students, you will be receiving a letter from the EICS divisional office that will inform you of the designated school for your child moving on to Grade 5. Students that are in the MCS boundary are designated to attend OLPH Middle School. EICS is hoping to send out the letters on January 23rd. Check your PowerSchool parent portal.
Also, current Kinder to Grade 3 students, MAY REMAIN at Madonna if they are already here, Catholic and if there is room and resources. Bus costs will be charged if the parent is not picking up and dropping off the student.
If you currently are not in the New Boundary for Madonna School, please make an appointment with Mrs. Antoniuk to discuss your situation.
Parents, please check MCS website for the link to the boundary. Put your address in and search to determine your designated school.
