Dear Parents,

COVID UPDATE!
Yesterday, our Grade 7 class, along with our Student Leadership Council, had the privilege of joining with 9 other CISVA Schools on a Question and Answer Zoom with Dr. Bonnie Henry. Our Student Council President, Sofia Kraljevic, presented the council’s question and was well received. The entire session with Dr. Bonnie Henry will be posted in the Grade 7 student page when it is made available. We are extremely proud of our students, and especially our Grade 7 student leaders. Congratulations on representing OLS so well!

Thank you to all our OLS students who continually show love and respect for each other and represent our philosophy of Faith in Action throughout the greater school and parish community.

WEATHER UPDATE- SNOW UPDATE!
Please note, as the weather is starting to get colder we are asking parents to ensure students have proper jackets and shoes. As well, please do NOT send students who have gym in the morning only with a PE strip! As there maybe snow in the forecast please refer to the extreme weather procedures on our OLS website: www.ourladyofsorrows.ca

PARISH MASSES
Please visit our Parish Website: www.olos.ca for the live Masses and updates. In this incredibly difficult time for many of us, our Parish, Father Richard, Father Testamar, and our Religious Sisters, do a wonderful job of providing us with hope and remind us that we are not alone; Jesus is with us. Masses as a family are a wonderful way to keep connected as a family and watch and pray together virtually.

REMINDERS
