We have been contacted by neighbours about the dumping of garbage on school grounds and on nearby streets.  Students need to refrain from littering.  It hurts our environment, looks terrible, and is illegal.  Most littering, but not all, seem to be coming from vehicles.  We have garbage bins around, as do all restaurants you visit, and as do your homes.  Use them.  Just a reminder that parking in the lot is a privilege and we will remove that privilege from anyone caught littering. 


Vehicles at Holy Trinity Elementary

We have also been contacted by our neighbouring school, Holy Trinity Elementary, about damage to vehicles in their lot.  Students are touching vehicles and writing inappropriate comments on the vehicles in the salt residue. Students involved seem to be mostly in our junior high.  If those students cannot maturely walk through the parking lot of neighbouring schools and business, we will restrict their lunch privileges so that they can stay on site and be supervised.   Just a life lesson: You do NOT touch the vehicle!!!

What should a parent or guardian do when their child is absent from school?

Daily Absence

If your child is absent from school for a full day or a part of the day, email your child’s teachers. Since attendance is taken by individual subject teachers for each period of the day, we kindly ask parents or guardians to create a folder in your email contacts and copy and paste your child’s teachers’ email addresses into that folder.  With a simple click, parents or guardians can then simply send one email to all of your child’s teachers.

Extended Absence

If your child is absent for more than 2 consecutive days, then please email hthattendance@gmail.com  and provide the dates of your child’s absence.

2018-2019 Busing

Talk to your Councilor

Our school Counsellors wear a lot of hats as they provide support to all of our students in NL. Below, is an interactive version of the Talk to Your School Counsellor poster. Each heading will provide links to relevant information pertaining to that topic.

Cafeteria Services
In the event that there is a two hour delayed opening, cafeteria services will not be available to students as our Chartwell's cafeteria staff will not have adequate time to prepare for lunch. Parents are asked to ensure that if we experience a two hour weather delay that students bring a lunch from home.   We appreciate your support and understanding with this matter.  If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.
Scent Free Building Reminder
Scented products can be harmful to many people, and can make those who have allergies, migraines, environmental sensitivities and chronic heart and lung diseases very sick. Please refrain from wearing scented products in the school due to allergies which result in breathing difficulty in the presence of strong smelling fragrances. This includes items such as colognes and aftershaves like Axe, scented shampoo and conditioners, hairspray, scented deodorants, perfumes, lotions, creams, etc.
