February Update!!

 

Heavenly Father, on this Feast of Candlemas (the Presentation of Christ), I recall the gift Mary and Joseph gave to the world by offering baby Jesus to You in the temple.
I offer up to You all the children in my family. I place them into Your perfect will and I turn their futures over to You.
Help me to let go of my ideas of what they should do with their lives, and show me how to guide them into the purposes for which You created them.
Help me to learn from the example of the Blessed Mother, whose heart was pierced by the sword of her Son’s pain, how to always trust in Your plans.
Amen.

School Yard Safety – Before and After School

Parents/adults are not permitted to enter the blacktop and school property during the school day. Just as we do at recesses during the day, we supervise and ensure the safety of students when on school property. These same measures – no adults and/or strangers on school property – will be in place for the full school day – between 8:40-3:55 PM. Parents of Kindergarten students can continue their drop-off and pick-up procedures that are currently in place.

The Safe Schools Act dictates that Parents and Visitors sign in at the office before gaining access to school property or spaces occupied by our students – we need to ensure we exercise the same safety measures as we start and end our day. Accordingly, we consistently have parents, visitors or strangers (construction staff, board staff, etc.) sign in at the office before gaining access to the school yard, hallways and/or classrooms at any point in the day.

Please see the attached document for a reminder of the Drop-off and Pick-up Zones:

Holy Spirit Drop-off and Pick-up Zones

Thank you for helping keep safety at the forefront of all we do at the Mighty Holy Spirit!

Community Safety: By-law Enforcement

Hello everyone. We are sending the Holy Spirit Community a direct link to the City of Cambridge By-Law Enforcement page to assist our community with access to information on when and how to report concerns. The page is very user friendly and will help in our continued effort to keep our school and neighborhood safe. The site explains how you can report by-law issues, when to notify police, and lists common by law complaints.  Thank for your continued support.
