Comfort & Joy Fundraising Campaign
We are just past the halfway point of our Comfort & Joy campaign. Thank you to those who have already contritibed. Families interested and able to participate can still contribute until December 9th.
Throughout the campaign our Chaplain, Mr. Guitard, has been sharing anonymous stories of families in need in our community during morning announcements. Our goal is to be able to support at least 30 families. There are three ways to give. Donations can be made through School Cash Online. Gift cards are also being collected in homeroom classes. Finally, we have a donation bin available in the atrium in which non-perishable food items can be dropped off. Donations will be directed to the Stittsville and Richmond Food Banks.
Inclement Weather Days
Should future inclement weather days cause the cancellation of school transportation, our schools will continue to be open for students who walk to school or who can arrive at school by other means.
For those students who remain at home on inclement weather days, teachers will continue their practice of posting work to their Hapara Workspace. At the high school level, the day will count in our Cohort A/Cohort B schedule. For example, if an inclement weather day occurs on a Cohort A in-school learning day, the following day will remain an in-school learning day for Cohort B. In other words, the Cohort A/B schedule will proceed as originally planned.
