Happy New School Year!  

Welcome to the Holy Family community!  We are so happy to be in partnership with you.   “ in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others” (Romans 12:5)

We are a growing community:  This year we are opening with 29 classrooms!  Our fabulous team has worked hard to prepare the school for our students’ arrival and we are all looking forward to sharing their academic journey.

Regular punctual attendance builds success.  Students thrive with consistent and predictable routines.  We will work to minimize disruption in routines and we ask that families partner with us to establish these routines early.  Our day begins at 9:14 AM and it’s essential that students be in class to receive their start of day instructions.  

Communication between school and home is critical to student success and essential to a strong sense of belonging.  We seek to provide all the information you need through regular updates on Twitter (@HolyFamily137); and on the school calendar on our website (; through the student agenda and by phone (905-623-6255).  Please always feel welcome to ask any questions you may have- we are here to serve you.  

Parent involvement is a key factor in your child’s success and we encourage you to consider joining the various committees or running in our Catholic School Council elections.  Nomination forms will be distributed next week.

End of day dismissal is at 3:40 PM. Students who are transported by school bus will be directed to the loading zone.  Walkers are asked to leave the school grounds promptly.

To confirm your child’s busing information, please visit the STSCO website (  You will need your child’s OEN which can be found on the report card.  This will identify the stop location and time for pick up and drop off.  

Yours in Partnership,

Mme Charette, Principal & Karen Bycok, Vice-Principal
