Leadership Message

Hello families of St. Patrick School,


On Sunday the Advent season begins. Advent is a time when we start to prepare our hearts for the coming of Jesus' birth. This is a very exciting time in our faith.


We have many activities at school during the time of Advent such as grade level student leadership led Advent assemblies. Our school chaplains will also be running an Advent Escape Room activity during lunch time chapel. We will also have Father Kris join us for a school wide virtual Advent Celebration.


During the season of Advent it is important to think about those in our community who are in need. School Council has set up the giving tree at our school to support The Open Door Association. Please see the picture below on how you can help support the youth in our community.


Have a great weekend,


Mrs. Nanias

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.

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.
