Welcome to our school community!
We believe that all families are composed of individuals who are competent and capable, curious, and rich in experience. We know our families love their children and want the best for them. Families are experts on their children. They are the first and most powerful influence on children’s learning, development, health, and well-being. Families bring diverse social, cultural, and linguistic perspectives. Families should feel that they belong, are valuable contributors to their children’s learning, and deserve to be engaged in a meaningful way.
Welcome to Kindergarten Event You will be invited to our school this year in the spring, where we can gather in community and get to know each other! There will be an opportunity for you and your child to participate in activities together and ask questions. Let’s get ready to Talk, Create, Read and Play!
The Waterloo Catholic District School Board is committed to providing and maintaining a healthy environment for all students and staff. In particular, this includes all those who may be susceptible to Anaphylaxis – the term used to describe acute, severe life-threatening allergic reactions to a substance. Epinephrine (EPIPEN) is the only drug that should be used in the emergency management of a child having a life threatening allergic reaction.
We are projected to have a few children in our Kindergarten Classes that have a life-threatening allergy to food (Anaphylaxis). In these cases, it is not mere injection of the food, but reside that the food may leave on surfaces and the food being exposed near the child. These children can go into Anaphylactic Shock, which is serious.
We ask that parents support us in keeping the school “nut free” as we have students with severe peanut allergies. Nut butter products are not permitted (such as Nutella), nor or any nut butter substitutes.
In addition to nuts, we must keep certain classrooms allergen free. The specific allergens for the Kindergarten areas are: Dairy, Strawberries, Fish and Eggs.
