Inclement Weather

 

Good Afternoon Scottie Families:

As you may have heard, there is a possibility of some nasty weather coming our way this afternoon into this evening and tomorrow. Below is some information for any Inclement Weather Day.

In the event of an inclement weather day being declared, and the buses are cancelled due to the weather and unsafe driving conditions, our school will be closed and students will have a remote learning day. Teachers will communicate through their Google Classroom or D2L. Teachers will post work in the morning, no later than 10 a.m. and students will work on their own timing in their home. This will allow all students to access learning and we will be continuing to keep one and all safe.

For updated information please monitor the WCDSB website, social media feeds, and radio stations for information on cancellations.

Thanks for all that you are doing to keep our community safe. Please contact us if we can help in any way!

 

 

 

 

 

Hats and Mitts for those in NEED!

Attention Scotties;

Cambridge needs our help!

The winter season can be an extremely difficult season for many people in our community. Cold weather brings new challenges for those less fortunate.

This December from the 1st-14th, we are collecting adult size winter hats, gloves & mittens that will be donated to those in need through Bridges Shelter.

Also, families can make a monetary donation via School Cash Online (beginning December 1st PM)! Any money donated will be used to purchase new hats & hats/mitten/gloves for those in need this year.

Help us spread some light & love this Christmas season with your generous donation! 

“It is more blessed to give than to receive.” Acts 20:35

St Vincent de Paul Christmas program

St. Margaret Families:

The St Vincent de Paul Society of St. Patrick’s Parish is once again running their annual Christmas program. Families living within the parish boundaries may request Christmas assistance by leaving a message on the SVDP voice mail at 519-623-0173 by Nov 30. A volunteer will return the call and collect the required information.

Due to Covid precautions, a grocery store voucher will be mailed this year and for those families with children under 18 years of age, a gift card will also be included in lieu of actual gifts.

Please note that families that register with the Firefighter Basket Program, Salvation Army or the Food Bank’s Christmas program cannot also register with our program.
