August Updates

Good Morning,

We could not have been happier to see your children this week! The smiles in their eyes said it all and those eyes brought tears to ours! Thank you for trusting us. We are continually working to do all we can to keep the children safe.

Please remember to submit all of the forms that were given to you when your child/ren came to meet with the teachers on Wednesday.

Below is the schedule for our first few days back to school:

We continue to place information on the COVID-19 page on our website. This page contains a great deal of information regarding procedures, including pick up and drop off, we invite you to visit it.

We continue to ask for your patience as we maneuver this very new normal ourselves. We know there will be glitches.

Please call us with any questions.

Protecting God's Children

We appreciate the dedication and the commitment of our entire community. We cannot function without the generosity of our volunteers. Even though, our volunteers will be limited the first part of the school year, we are going to look forward to the future of a time where our halls will be able to once again greet visitors.

In order for you to volunteer in any capacity, we require you to be fully compliant with the steps outlined by the Office for the Protection of Children and Youth.

All documents can be found on our website:

We will also be distributing the CANTS form in a folder that you will receive on Wednesday. This is the only form that you are required to complete yearly.
