School Buses Cancelled for Sir Edgar Bauer CES (Tues. Jan. 29)

Due to the current weather conditions, ALL SCHOOL BUSES, TAXIS AND SPECIAL EDUCATION ROUTES operated by the Waterloo Catholic District School Board and Waterloo Region District School Board are cancelled.

The School will remain open and all classes are running.

Communication of School Bus Cancellations or School Closures

Between 5:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. on mornings when inclement weather has been forecast for Waterloo Region, Student Transportation Services of Waterloo Region (STSWR) — the arm’s length body that coordinates and operates student transportation for the school boards — assesses the current weather conditions, in consultation with local bus companies, if necessary. If a recommendation to cancel transportation (including potential closure of schools) is to be made, the local school boards are contacted and a joint decision is made between STSWR and the boards.

All reasonable efforts are made to announce any cancellation of buses or school closures well before the start of school. Please note that public announcements will only be made if buses are cancelled and / or schools are closed.

It is recommended that parents, guardians, staff and students tune in a local Waterloo Region radio station:
AM 570, 1090;
FM 91.5, 96.7,  99.5, 107.5
and also monitor the following online information sources for information about potential closures or cancellations:

Grade 4-8 students are participating in the Chicopee Ski/Snowboard program as part of our phys-ed curriculum. Letters and permission forms were sent home last week, please contact your child’s teacher if you need one. Forms and Money are DUE MONDAY, January 28th. Lessons are included!  Please note that subsidies are available for families who need financial assistance.

We need as many skiing/snowboarding chaperones (18yrs +) as we can get, so please consider joining us for a great day of fresh air and physical activity! Older siblings, cousins, grandparents, aunts/uncles are welcome.

We are very excited about this great learning opportunity for our students! As always, please contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions or concerns.

Graduation Absentees/Retake @ Lifetouch

In order to ensure the graduation composite is completed in a timely manner, we have reserved a picture date for absentees/retakes on February 5, 2019 at the Lifetouch studio in Kitchener (907 Frederick St, Kitchener).  It is the student’s parent’s responsibility to contact Lifetouch at 519-744-1146 ext. 2 to book their appointment.

If photographed in the studio, the student will still be included on the graduation composite.  Photos taken AFTER the date above will not be added, due to time constraints.
