A friendly reminder:  When sending in absentee notes, please ensure you add your child’s first and last name, grade, absence date, and reason for absence. It is very important that an absentee note is sent to school each time your child is away.  All absentee notes are to be emailed to office@ourladyofsorrows.ca

SCHOOL FRONT DOOR USE

PLEASE NOTE:  All students are to enter the school in the morning through the back door, NOT the front door.  The back door remains open until 8:55 a.m.  If your child is late (arriving after 9:00 a.m.), only then should they enter through the front door to check in with the office.

Preschool parents are to ONLY USE the preschool door (Turner side) for drop off and pick up.

NO- BLOCKING DRIVEWAYS!!! OR DOUBLE PARKING IN DROP- OFFS

PLEASE DO NOT PARK /BLOCK the Pender or Turner Street Driveways for Pick up/Drop-off or Masses, as we have many deliveries and large truck pick-ups daily! Cars will be ticketed and towed as it is a danger to our students and families trying to navigate through the areas. Thank you for your understanding!
