Other Information
*Holy Cross Parish Envelopes for 2021 are available for pick up in the Church foyer. School parents are reminded to please pick them up.

*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 of all school activities,

Mr. Dino Alberti
