Monday Morning Minutes December 14th, 2020
Posted on 12/14/2020

Dear ALC Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to the last Monday Morning Message of the 2020 calendar year.  On behalf of the entire staff and School Council, we would like to thank you for your generous support of our sister school, Carleton Heights.  Your donations of Walmart and PC gift cards over the past few weeks will help many CH families in need during the holiday season.  As this will be the last MMM of 2020, we’d like to take this opportunity to wish the entire ALC community happy holidays and best wishes for a happy and healthy 2021.

Daily COVID Student Assessment

Parents and guardians are to complete the Ottawa Public Health (OPH) COVID self-assessment for every student before leaving home each day.

This step is key to helping keep the virus out of the school.  Please take the time to thoroughly review the screening tool with your child each morning, and follow the directions provided by Ottawa Public Health.

Please fill in the following Attestation Form before sending the children back to school after any illness or testing. 


Thank you for doing your part to help keep our staff and students safe and healthy.
