Head Lice Policy

If parents suspect or know their child has head lice, we request you contact the school immediately. Each suspected case of head lice must be referred to a Screening Agency (Wee Care) as it is detected. Wee Care will verify the condition. When necessary, the school will inform individual parents of the confirmed case(s) of head lice.  Parents will be informed they must have a return-to-school form signed by Wee Care, another accredited agency or a medical practitioner prior to their child returning to class. We do NOT encourage private agencies for treatment, this is up to parents discretion.

Here is helpful information for treatment from WeeCare on this document. WeeCare Tips

Inclement Weather

Please remember that in the event that school buses are cancelled in the morning due to weather, they are cancelled for the entire day. Parents who choose to drive their child to school must make arrangements to pick them up after school. **Any bus cancellations also apply to before/after school programs.**

In the event that you choose to keep your child home on inclement weather days, you are reminded to report the absence on the Attendance System

School bus cancellation and school closure information can be found on the Halton District School Board website (HDSB), various radio stations and television shows. Parents will also be informed of any closures or cancellations via the Synervoice School Connects system.


Each elementary school, within the Halton District School Board, has a safe arrival process to help ensure the well being of our students. One important structure to ensure safe arrival is the absence check that takes place daily. In collaborating with parents/guardians we are able to provide a safety network for our students and we appreciate parent support. 

Please use the School Messenger app on your phone, go online or call
 1-877-409-6310 before 9:00 AM to report any late arrival or absence for your student. The system is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To report a late arrival, use the absence prompt and continue from there. 

If you do not report your child absent or late before 9:00 AM, the automated system will follow up and call you. If you call after 9:00 the system will only take an absence or late report for the following day and beyond.
