Holy Cross Pub Night 2021 News
This year’s Pub Night will be in the new format of a virtual silent auction and raffle accompanied by a special variety style show running over the dates of February 19 – 23. We invite all interest and donations to be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org and we look forward to having your virtual attendance at this event.
*With the onset of winter weather conditions, please take notice of the following procedures if school closures become necessary:
Step One: Check the Holy Cross School website
Step Two: Look in your emails for a Parent Notification
Step Three: Listen to CKNW 980AM
Step Four: Wait for a call from your phoning parent
*Kindly note that we have had numerous inquiries about the Holy Cross Parish Annual Golf Tournament and the Golf Committee has some preliminary dates and plans in place. However, we ask for your continued patience as they are awaiting the next announcements from our Provincial Health Authorities to see if they are able to proceed with these plans.
*There are only a few DVDs from our Christmas Musical available in the school office for $15 if you would like to purchase one for yourself or a family member.
*Our sincere gratitude goes out to our families at Holy Cross School for continuing to follow the protocols laid out in our 2020 Health & Safety Plan. We continue to advise families of our school community to err on the side of caution when deciding to send your children to school. We strongly recommend you keep your child at home if they are sick or if they present any symptoms listed on the COVID-19 checklist. In light of the most current press release from Dr. Bonnie Henry, I continue to commend our school community for their responsible cooperation with our Health & Safety Guidelines and I strongly urge our parents to continue with their diligence in this area. As a group, I believe we can continue to manage COVID-19 issues at the school level, but it is critical as our Provincial Health Officer regularly mentions that these guidelines are followed outside of the school as well. Thus far, your discretion and judgement has been outstanding and it has helped to maintain a safe school environment for all of us.
Thank you for your continued support,
