September Information 2021-2022

Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year!

School begins on August 31st at 8:04 Am.  Teachers will be meeting students outside of the school and bringing them into their new classrooms, As we are an extremely large school community, we ask that parents do not enter the building at this time. 

Each teacher will have a sign with their name and Grade on it. Click the PDF below for Instructions. You will have access to your child's class assignment on August 30th at 4 PM. 

Kindergarten - Grade 1 will meet on the East side of the school

Grade 2 & 3 will meet at the back of the school

Grade 4, 5, & 6 will meet on the Westside of the school

Grade 7,8 & 9 will meet at the North side of the school on the tarmac.

You can access your child's supply list by checking our website:  www.ecsd.net/1971/page/4842/school-supply-lists 

Please check our website for the most up to date information for the start of school.

We look forward to working with you and your child/children this year.

Staff 2022-2023:


Coming Soon




Drop off and Pick up of Students:

This increase in student enrollment has caused even further challenges when parents and busses are trying to safely drop off students.  We ask you to be extra cautious as you are arriving, dropping off or picking up your child before and after school.  We now have 14 busses that need to access the bus lane.  

Drop and Go or Pick Up and Go Lane:

The lane next to the bus lane in front of our school is now a drop and go lane; NO PARKING IS ALLOWED!  We thank parents for following our directions when dropping off their children.

After School Pick Up:  There is still a problem with the afternoon pick up of students for families who wish to use this lane.  If you are planning on picking your child up at the front of the school it would be best to delay your arrival until 2:50, at that time you will be able to enter the lot; students will be there after having been dismissed at 2:40, allowing the flow of pick up and drop off to happen faster.

School Website: 

Please be sure to check our school website for the most recent information and updates.  We do not send out monthly newsletters, but connect with our families by Swift messaging in PowerSchool.  It is important that you provide us with an e-mail address we can contact you at; as well as a phone number where quick text messages can be sent on a regular basis. 

Policy of First Contact:

Edmonton Catholic Schools has a policy of first contact, meaning that it is expected that you will first communicate with the person that there is a concern with.  If you are not satisfied with the conversation or you feel that you have not been heard; then you can contact the administration involving us so that we can facilitate a resolution.  Communication is key to all we do, please be sure to bring any questions or concerns to your teachers or the administrative team.  It is only by communicating effectively that we can address your concerns.

I look forward to another exciting school year working with you and your family.
