Buses Cancelled – Today, February 28th

Buses are cancelled due to weather conditions today, Friday February 28th.  If you choose to drive your child, please use extreme caution as rural roads have poor visibility and blowing snow. You will need to pick up your child promptly at 340pm.  Please drive safely.

Shrove Tuesday – Pancakes will be served February 25th

Panther Families,

We will be celebrating Shrove Tuesday at St. Boniface on Tuesday, February 25th, with a special pancake day. All students will receive a pancake snack to enjoy prior to the beginning of our Lenten journey. Pancakes and syrup have been generously donated by P&H Milling (thanks Mrs. King!!) and your fabulous School Council.

To further support our ECO team and initiatives within the school, we are requesting that students bring their own cutlery and reusable plate from home. This will eliminate the need for paper, foam and plastic to be wasted.

If you are available to help out with pancake prep and distribution on the 25th, kindly call the office at 519-648-2832. We would appreciate it if you could bring your own flat cooking grill and spatula as well. Many thanks!

Looking forward to a fabulous Shrove Tuesday at St. Boniface School.

Please note, children will still need a lunch on that day.

Labour Updates

In the absence of a provincially-negotiated collective agreement, the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association (OECTA) has selected the Waterloo Catholic District School Board as one of the Ontario school boards included in a one day rotating strike on Monday, February 24, 2020.

As a result of this strike, all Waterloo Catholic District School Board elementary and secondary schools will be closed on February 24.

This one day strike is in addition to the province-wide one day OECTA strike already announced for Friday, February 21, 2020.

In addition to the closure of all WCDSB elementary and secondary schools on February 24, please note the following:

Some programs offered at the WCDSB’s St. Louis Adult Learning & Continuing Education Centres will be cancelled on February 24 —  they are:

  • Hairstyling will be closed
  • Culinary Arts will be closed
  • Secondary School Credit Day School will be closed
  • Correspondence services will be closed
  • Guidance services will be closed.

All other St. Louis Adult Learning & Continuing Education Centres programs will be running as per their normal schedules.

All WCDSB extended day programs will be open for the day as usual (7 a.m. to 6 p.m.) for students currently registered in the program.

Community use of schools activities will continue as scheduled.

OECTA’s previously announced job actions will remain in effect before and after February 24.

As before, we remain hopeful the two sides will come to a fair and respectful agreement that serves the best interests of our students.
