First Day of School Procedures

First Day of School Procedures at St. Kateri CES

The first day of school is almost here!  Thank you to everyone who came to the school the past two days and took advantage of our ‘Sneak Peek’.  We hope this process has helped with the transition to the school year and will make things just a little bit easier for students on the first day.

As a result, we will not be gathering in the gym or on the blacktop as in years past.  When the bell rings on Tuesday, September 4th at 8:25 a.m., staff will be on the yard, in bright colored vests, assisting students line up with their class at their entrance doors or portables.

Once students begin proceeding to their classrooms, the ‘hand off’ has officially taken place and parents are free to make their way home, to the gym or to work.  We kindly request that parents not enter the school with their children in order to allow teachers the opportunity to explain and demonstrate the routines that will be followed this year.

If you were not able to attend our sneak peek and your child does not know which class they are in, students (and parents) can come to the main office and school staff will assist you.

A reminder that Year 2 Kindergarten (SK) students begin their school year on Wednesday, September 5th.


Thank you for your cooperation and enjoy the long weekend.  We are all looking forward to a great year!
