About Our Awesome School

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

We respectfully acknowledge that we are located on the ancestral, traditional and unceded Indigenous territories of the Algonquin Peoples on whose territory we pray, learn, work and play.

WELCOME TO OUR LADY OF PEACE SCHOOL! 

At Our Lady of Peace Catholic School, we continue to build on the tradition of faith, love and peace through knowledge which the school community has been establishing for over 50 years, in collaboration with St. Martin de Porres Parish. 

In partnership with our families and the Parish we are committed to your child's growth, spiritually, emotionally, socially and academically.  We strive to ensure that all OLP community members – students, families and staff – feel supported and nurtured.

Every child is blessed with unique gifts and talents and at Our Lady of Peace we are always looking for opportunities to support and encourage each student to explore, develop and demonstrate their God-given gifts.  This year, each student will set individual goals in Language and Math and with teacher guidance, build a plan to work to achieve these goals.  We will also be setting class goals as we explore what it means to be a community, to "Be Peace", as we journey to become productive Catholic Graduates.  We continue to work on providing each student with rich, meaningful tasks to deepen their learning, increase their engagement and become all they can be. 

A Safe and Caring School Environment
We work hard everyday to support a safe and caring environment where we respect and care for each other.  We encourage students to take responsibility for all their actions, in words and deeds.  We use a restorative justice approach to problem solving where all parties are given an opportunity to have a voice in the solution.  

Wearing clothing with culturally insensitive or inappropriate messages or images is not in keeping with our Catholic value of promoting a safe, caring and inclusive school community. All students are encouraged to wear respectful clothing at all times when on school property or on a school related activity.

Your feedback is important to us at OLP and we strive to keep the lines of communication open.  Please feel free to contact your child's teacher with any compliments, questions or concerns.  If you wish to meet with your child's teacher please call the school. Your child's teacher will contact you to arrange a mutually convenient time for a virtual or telephone conversation. We look forward to working with each of you.   

Attendance

Your child's safety and security is one of our primary concerns.  Please ensure that you contact the office to report any absences, late arrivals or early departures.  We thank you in advance for checking in at the office if your child is arriving late or is being picked up prior to dismissal.  If your child is being picked up by someone other than yourself, you must contact the office to provide details.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation in maintaining all our students' safety.

School in the times of Covid 19

As always, when calling in absence please provide the reason for the absence.  Thank you for checking your child each morning for any symptoms of illness. 

For any signs of illness, we follow the OPH protocols.  If your child presents with any symptoms during the day,  we will call you to pick up your child(ren).  As per the OPH protocol (OPH information letter provided to families upon pick up) they must be tested for Covid and may return to school when they have negative results and are symptom free.  The other option is to self isolate for 14 days and be symptom free before a return to school.  Thank you for helping to keep all our OLP family as safe as we can.  

School Hours

Please ensure that your child is in the schoolyard before the bell rings at 9:15 a.m. Outside supervision is provided from 9:00 – 9:15 a.m. For safety, walkers should not arrive at school prior to 9 a.m. as there is no yard supervision available before that time. We thank you in advance for helping us to ensure your children’s safety.
