LIBRARY NEWS
Some of the grades have started to check out library books each month and so far everyone is doing a great job! Each week students will check out one book.  The books are stamped with a due date when to be returned. Please remember to return the books on the due date so students can check out another book. Please remind your children to respect the books as they belong to the school library and they are shared amongst others. Thank you for continued support and please encourage your child to read, read, read!

MASKS WORK! PLEASE WASH THEM REQULARLY OR THROW THEM IN THE DRYER DAILY!
As the news of COVID numbers increases every day, all we can do is our part to stay safe. It is critical to remember to continue doing the daily screening checklist (also found on OLS’s website) and NOT send kids to school ill. Also, continue to follow the return to school procedures found in OLS’s Newsletter-Reminders-2020-2021 for additional school information.

We would like to remind you that our local health authority will notify the school of any direct exposures and if there happens to be any risks to our students, staff, or families.

Please continue to follow the Vancouver Coastal Health website: www.vch.ca and the exposure listings page: http://www.vch.ca/covid-19/school-exposures#.X4fbW8Vw86U.gmail

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. The Family Masses are a wonderful way to keep connected as a family and watch and pray together virtually, or in person by appointment. Call the Parish Office: 604-254-0691 to book your space!
