Dear Parents,


Please see the 3 attachments below provided by EICS:


2018-2019 school calendar communication

2018-2019 proposed calendar for St. Patrick Catholic School

2018-2019 proposed calendar for Our Lady of Mount Pleasant Catholic School


These proposed changes are a result of a new joint transportation agreement with Battle River School Division.


Please note: Our 4 year old Pre-Kindergarten programming (4 days/week) will now change slightly due to the proposed calendar change. Programming will occur Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday with the majority of Friday's off for students. These plans will be finalized once the calendar is approved.
