Dear ALC Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message.  

ALC Kinder Info night

Will your child be 4 years old by December 31, 2021? If so, we’re ready to help your child explore and discover as they begin Kindergarten in September of 2021.

On Monday, January 25, 2021 at 7 p.m. we will be holding a virtual parent information session, where you will learn about our Kindergarten program, meet our school administrators and staff, and hear some useful tips to ease your concerns and help your child prepare for their learning adventure.  Please help us spread the word to friends and neighbors with young children.  

Registration is now open for Kindergarten 2021. For more information about our program and registering for Kindergarten 2021, visit

Gr 9 Information session for Current Gr 8 Parents and Students

Gr 8 students and parents often have a lot of questions about Grade 9 and the transition to high school, and to help answer them, OCDSB Secondary Schools will be hosting Welcome to High School Virtual Information Sessions. These sessions are a wonderful opportunity to learn about the exciting pathways available for your child’s future and a great chance to interact with the friendly staff at your local high school. 

South Carleton Secondary School’s virtual information session will take place on January 20.  A listing of the various OCDSB secondary nights is available here  Parents and students will have the opportunity to ask questions in advance or during these sessions. The details will be posted on the individual school’s website. These sessions will be recorded and will be available on the school and district websites.
