Our school uses an automated School Messenger system to alert parents and guardians to important topics such as student absences and other important announcements and information that need to be communicated in a timely manner. This communication may come in the form of a phone call and/or email.
For safety reasons, our School Messenger system automatically sends a message to parents when their child is marked absent for a class IF the parent has not notified the office of the absence in advance. To avoid receiving messages regarding student absences, please contact the office in advance to have it excused.
School Messenger is also used to inform parents via pre-recorded announcements. These typically are general information such as school status updates, permission form reminders, event or meeting invitations, etc.
Communication During an Emergency
During an emergency, we will make every effort to contact parents directly. Depending on the emergency, it may not be possible to send out information until after the incident has ended. In this case, School Messenger may be part of our school emergency response.
School Events Calendar
Parents and guardians are encouraged to visit our School Events Calendar regularly. Information about parent meetings and other school events pertaining to students will be posted here.
Parents with Facebook are encouraged to follow our page for up-to-date information and announcements from our school.
Please note: important and time-sensitive announcements will also be posted to our school homepage blog.
Powerschool for Parents
Powerschool is a secure web-based student management system that allows parents and legal guardians to monitor their child's progress and attendance in their classes.
How to Access Powerschool
Each September, and as new students enroll, the school office will mail parents information on how to access Powerschool. This information will include a unique username and password. Parents may also contact our school office at any time to request their user information.

Each month our school office sends home a package to parents that contains important documents and other pertinent information for parents/guardians. Content may include items such as:
- Report Cards

Some general documents included in the mailout may also be posted in the "School Documents" pages of our website.
Report Cards and Parent/Teacher Interviews
While parents/guardians are encouraged to regularly check their student's progress through the Powerschool for Students and Parents portal, report cards continue to be mailed home four times per year:
- Term 1 - Mid-November

Parent/Teacher Interviews are usually held on a Wednesday following report cards from 4:00-7:00 PM. Dates will be sent home at the beginning of each school year, and will be advertised in advance on our School Events Calendar and in our newsletter.
