Leadership Message

Happy New Year to all our St. Patrick School families,

We are very excited to have our students back in the school! Our staff have been working very hard this last week to prepare for in person learning on January 10th.

Please be sure that you read the communication that was sent out from EICS on updated COVID 19 procedures and protocols. We will also link the letter below this message.

We will continue to provide more updates to our school community as we move through the latest stage of the pandemic. Please be assured we are continuing to promote the safety of all students, staff and families within our St. Patrick School community.

See you next week and God Bless,

Mrs.Nanias and Mrs.Ellert

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.

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 injury.

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.
