Lenten Project
This week we will continue to be asking our Holy Redeemer Community to support the PJ Patrol and also the collection of toiletry items.  Information regarding this initiative is located under our News & Links > School Newsletters Tab.  We will begin collecting items  until December 15, 2020.

Advent Liturgies
We are unable to come together in divisions or as a school to participate in Advent Liturgies.  The Liturgies will be celebrated in the individual classes.

We ask Parents to remind our students of the importance of hygiene (washing hands), social distance and mask wearing each day.  We make this a priority each and everyday at school to say these gentle reminders, as the importance of these practices can never be taken for granted.

Bus Lanes
Just a reminder that Bus lanes are off limits to parking, drop off and pick up during the hours of 8:00-8:45 AM and 2:30-3:15 PM.

Screen Tool
Please continue to use the screening tool for students each and everyday.  It is located on our website.

Just a reminder to check the OSTA website each morning for cancellations.  If they are not running in the morning alternative methods of transportation will need to be made for both before and after school.  As a reminder please be ready for your pick up site at least 5 minutes before your arrival time, and please be ready to board the bus upon arrival to your stop.  This will assist our Bus drivers with their schedules.  Thank you.

Internet Safety
We are working on bringing to our Parent Community a presentation by Paul Davis entitled, "Social Networking Safety".  We will be working with our Council Chair to discuss dates in the New Year, and also other opportunities to educate both our students and parent community.

Parent Surprises
Over the next week our students and classes will be working on "Christmas Joy" for our parents.  Various projects are in the works.  It is very special to see a performance, or concert at school, however this has to be on hold this year, so we hope this "surprise" brings this joy to you.
