IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO ALL PARENTS SEPTEMBER 30, 2015
September 30th is an important day in our elementary and secondary schools as it will be the official date for recording the attendance of all students in the youth sector (elementary and secondary) with the Ministry of Education. It is important that all our students are present at school on September 30th, 2015. On this day, schools administer a strategic attendance plan for students in order to ensure government funding and support for the academic year. Please ensure that your child is in attendance that day. In the case of an illness or emergency, please notify the school by calling the main office.
This day has also been designated as an important day among the French school boards on the Island of Montreal. La Fédération autonome des enseignants (FAE), which represents the entire teacher body of our French school boards on the Island of Montreal, has indicated that they will be striking on Wednesday, September 30th, 2015.
Please note that the EMSB teachers will NOT be on strike on September 30th, and that we will be offering regular classes in all of our schools and centres.
We are confident that the day will go well. In the event that our French sister boards unfortunately cause some unavoidable disruption to our daily activities, we will assess the situation to ensure everyone’s wellbeing and implement, if necessary, our emergency preparedness procedures. Should access to our facilities be blocked, we would move to our designated secure location;
Trinity Church located at 3050 Rosemont Blvd
We would also advise you to send your child to school with a cold lunch on September 30th should we be outside our premises. Therefore, our school cafeteria will not be available that day.
Please rest assured that we are committed to offer the best educational service and to ensure the safety and well-being of all our staff and students during this negotiation period. We thank you for your understanding and collaboration.
Mrs. Antoinette Scrocca
