What do I do if my child is sick and cannot come to school?

If your child is sick, please do not send him/her to school.

The school's answering machine is on 24/7 so you can leave a message at your convenience.

In which grades do students receive their sacraments?

Sacraments of First Communion, First Reconciliation and Confirmations are organized and celebrated in conjunction with St. Michael’s Church.   Parents work in collaboration with the parish priest to prepare students in Grade 2 for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist, and to prepare students in Grade 7 for Confirmation. The celebrations of the Sacraments are all performed at the church.  To receive a sacrament, the student must be baptized Catholic.
