At this blessed feast, may rich and poor alike remember that we are called to serve one another and to walk together in God's gracious world. With thankful hearts we praise our God who like a loving parent denies us no good thing. Amen From the Office…. AFTER SCHOOL ARRANGEMENTS If your child’s pick up schedule has changed please let the classroom teacher know by sending a note or adding it to the agenda. As you can appreciate, the office is a very busy place and at times we cannot always respond to late day messages or phone calls. To ensure that your child is notified of any changes to your schedules please send a note or call early in the school day. VISITORS TO THE SCHOOL All visitors, including parents and former students must check in at the main office before proceeding to any other area of the school. If you are dropping off a lunch for your child, please leave it at the table by the entrance where there are pens and labels available for identification. We thank the school community for dropping off lunches at the 11:45 am bell, to limit the amount of doorbell interruptions to the office. If you are picking up your child early, the best practice is to send a note to the teacher with the time for your child to come to the office, this way we avoid interrupting the classes. Please report to the office and sign them out. RUN FOR RUTH On Thursday, December 27, 2013 the St. Julia community suffered a great loss. Ruth Katelyn Cruz, a grade 4 student at St. Julia passed away after a long and hard fought battle against a brain tumour. In memory of Ruth Katelyn Cruz, we hold our annual Run for Ruth in October. This year it will be held on Friday, October 9, 2015. The day will begin with a school gathering around the Peace Garden for a beautiful liturgy. Throughout the day, each class will walk or run around the neighbourhood, showing their support for such an important cause. We are asking students to donate a toonie. The Cruz family has asked that all proceeds raised be donated to The Make a Wish Foundation & Share Life. We look forward to a successful Run for Ruth 2015. MISSED WORK DUE TO ABSENCES When children are absent from school they miss important lessons and work that extends from these teachings. If a child is absent due to illness we kindly request that children get the needed rest they require so they can come back to school healthy. The teachers will not be sending daily work home for your son/daughter to “catch up”. They will spend time assisting students on their return to school. If your son/daughter is absent due to extended illness, please contact Mrs. Nichols to discuss some available options. ILLNESS Children who come to school are expected to participate fully in the class program. This includes taking recess breaks with the class. If your child needs to remain indoors for recesses a medical note should be provided.

This guideline sets expectations for all school boards on managing and reviewing underutilized school space, including potential school closures, and for the greater coordination and sharing of planning related information between school boards and other community partners. The guideline requires all school boards in the province to develop or revise Pupil Accommodation Review Policies and to invite public input into the policy before it is finalized. A survey to collect feedback on the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board’s draft amended Policy 6.51 Pupil Accommodation Review will be available for review and comment on the Board’s website at www.dpcdsb.org until 4:30 pm on Friday, October 16, 2015. Supporting documents will also be available for reference and review. Please consider reviewing and providing input on this policy.
