2021-22 EDP at OLMC

posted Mar 31, 2021, 5:27 AM by Debbie Lloyd

Dear OLMC Families,

At this time we are asking families to indicate their interest in EDP (before/after school care) for September 2021. The results of this survey will inform us whether or not OLMC's EDP will run programs next school year. It is OCSB's sincere hope to be able to reopen again next year. However as a cost recovery program and during this time of extremely low enrollment in child care, the board has to be mindful of expenditures so please complete the form if you require the program. The deadline for expressing interest is April 8.
2021-22 Extended Day Program Interest Survey - Deadline April 8, 2021

Request for a Device

posted Jan 3, 2021, 5:50 AM by Debbie Lloyd

Dear OLMC Families,
As you know, your child will be learning virtually next week, beginning tomorrow afternoon. If you require a device, please complete this form ( by Monday at 10:00 a.m. so that we can coordinate distribution for Monday afternoon between at 12:00-2:00. Only an adult can pick up the technology and it must be returned by an adult Friday afternoon no later than 3:00 (unless virtual learning is extended longer). Complete one form for each of your children who needs a device. We will send out a confirmation email Monday morning shortly after 10:00 with details about the pick up. If you have left a message or emailed the school requesting a device, please complete the form regardless.

A few extra details you should know:

- The distribution of devices will only occur on Monday, no exceptions.
- Attendance will be taken daily so if your child is not logged in, you will receive an automated attendance call. If your child is opting out of synchronous learning for the week, please inform the teacher or school and we will mark them absent approved.
- Your child in Gr. 1-6 will follow their usual school schedule and will have French, and unsupervised "recess" and lunch at their usual time. Kindergarten classes will follow a schedule different than their regular one. Teachers will be in contact with details later Monday morning.
- The school board either has sent or will send communication with tutorials for parents about the student portal, Hapara and logging into a virtual meet.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this email.

Yours in education,
​​​​​​​Mrs. Lloyd

Dear OLMC Families,

A few notes about entry/dismissal... We are seeking your support to help reduce the risk of transmitting the COVID-19 virus with the following strategies/policies:

Entry: Students should arrive no earlier than 9:10 and cannot congregate on the yard.

Dismissal: If you pick up your child at the end of the day, we ask that you arrive at 3:15 to allow for staggered dismissal and reduce congestion on the yard. Students who walk home will be dismissed early between 3:15-30.
