Monday Morning Minutes October 26th, 2020
Posted on 10/26/2020
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.

Attestation form for student return to school after a illness or covid symptom or symptoms and/or testing:

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

October ALC Spirit Days

Thank you to everyone who participated in last week’s ALC School Pride Spirit Day.  This Friday, ALC students are welcome to celebrate Halloween by either wearing orange and black or wearing a simple costume to school on Friday.  

Ottawa Public Health and the OCDSB have asked that all students respect the following parameters:

Students are welcome to wear a simple costume, no accessories, no costume mask, no makeup

There will be no change of clothes at school - students should arrive in their chosen outfit for the day

There will be no distribution or exchange of treats or sharing of food

There will be no costume parades

All members of the ALC community are asked to continue to respect the distancing  instructions

We recommend that should your child already have an elaborate costume ready for Halloween, that they save it for Saturday and wear a simple costume or orange and black to school on Friday.

School Council Fundraising

ALC Pizza Night! 

We can't do lunch but we can do dinner (and pizza leftovers are great for lunch) this Wednesday, October 28th. Jojo's pizza will kick back 25% to ALC school council with any orders on Wednesday, Oct 28th (all day) and the last Wednesday of every month.  

Just mention ALC when you order.
