Preparing for the Changing Weather

Please keep in mind that students go outdoor for recesses, two 15 minute and one 40 minute break,  unless there is a severe weather warning.  The procedures in Policy 221, Extreme Weather, requires Catholic School Councils to determine the extreme cold temperature, with wind chill at the beginning of each  school year.  The OLA  Catholic School Council has agreed upon –18C for this school year.

In extremely cold conditions (-18 C or colder) indoor routines are followed.  Yard supervision begins at 8:45 a.m., with staff members available to oversee your children’s arrival.  Please note that students must NOT arrive prior to this time, as there is no supervision provided.
