posted Aug 24, 2020, 9:31 AM by Krista Pollock

Welcome Back Everyone! This is going to be a remarkable school year! I just wanted to take this opportunity to share with you what I know at this time. Mr. McGuire, myself and our new custodian Bev have returned to work effective Aug 24th. We are busy preparing the school, classrooms and staff sites to be safe, we are reorganizing classes, rescheduling students and teachers to prepare for in person and distance learning, we are creating safe bus seating schedules and taking training courses. We know you all have many questions! I am currently receiving a very high volume of phone calls and emails. We thank you for your patience as we try to complete everything in a very short time frame. Please note that at this time Visitors including Parents/Guardians are not permitted in the school. Most questions can be answered by visiting the various links and announcements on our website kat.ocsb.ca or the school board website ocsb.ca and I have included many important links for you below. Please sign up for School Messenger now and watch your inboxes as communications/information will be coming.

We are all in this together SKT!
