Dear ALC Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message.  

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 form before sending kids to school after any illness or testing.  This is to keep our school Healthy and free of the virus.  Your communication and caution has been greatly appreciated. 

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

End of Day Dismissal Reminder to Leave the Property

With the winter months here, there are often snow hills located near the bus loop that children enjoy playing on. Due to Covid protocols, we ask that all parents please leave the school yard as soon as the children are picked up (3:30 or 3:45) for safety reasons. We thank you for your cooperation.
