2. Document Verification Week ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED FOR FEBRUARY 1-4 … NOW(TBD):

Due to school closures and due to Covid protocols, we are not able to have parents come into the school in person at this time to verify information to complete the registration process for the fall of 2021.  We will be processing all registrations and will reach out directly to parents where there are notable concerns with the registration package.  For all families coming from non-HCDSB elementary schools, that means all schools not affiliated with the Halton Catholic District School Board, we will be asking for in person verification of documents either in the spring or in the fall before school starts, depending on Covid protocols around school access.  It is important for families to know that should there be a problem with any verification of documentation, it may result in the need for your registration to be denied and for you to register your child at the appropriate school.
