Dear CDSBEO families and future families, Please be advised that due to the unusual circumstances surrounding COVID-19, new student registrations for the 2020-2021 school year will close on August 14, 2020. This cut-off date is to ensure that appropriate planning can be done for the September startup. Given that we are unsure at this time of what the return to school will look like, we must plan for all scenarios, and therefore ask that you register your child as soon as possible. Any registrations received after August 14 will be reviewed, placed on a wait list, and parents will be contacted in September. We look forward to working with our existing and new families, and will do our best to accommodate new student registrations as we move forward during this unique time in education. If you need to register your child for September, please visit www.cdsbeo.on.ca and complete the online registration as soon as possible (and before August 14). For new secondary student registrations, please contact the school directly to register. Thank you for your cooperation and patience as we navigate these unprecedented times.
A Special Announcement for our In-School Shop Customers!
To all our St. Michael families who purchased a year book for the school year 2019 - 2020. We have been in contact with our yearbook provider and due to COVID-19 yearbooks will be delivered to our school late June or early July. They are working extremely hard to provide the yearbooks as quickly as possible to all schools. Once the yearbooks arrive at our school we will notify all families with regard to the protocol to pick up your yearbook. We hope all families are well and remain safe.

This is a call out to all graduating students to send Mrs. Johnston an email with the following... your favourite St. Mike's memory, some words of wisdom for all St. Michael students, and your destination come September. Normally we would ask you this information at school, however, we are hoping you can all respond to Ms. Johnston via email. We are putting together something that will be posted online and used at grad, so please make sure it is appropriate. Thanks so much graduates, we think of you daily!! Kristi.email@example.com

Dear CDSBEO Families of Grade 12 Students, We hope this communication finds you well during these unprecedented times. As we approach prom and graduation season, we have received several inquiries about proms or similar end of year school activities. We have received communication from our local Chief Medical Officers of Health, and their public health perspective given that we are still seeing a growing number of COVID-19 cases in our region, is that they will not permit proms to take place. Therefore, it is with great disappointment that proms for the 2019-2020 school year are cancelled. CDSBEO will continue to follow the direction of our Chief Medical Officers of Health regarding graduation ceremonies. However, should restrictions be lifted before the end of the school year to an extent that it would be deemed safe to hold events such as graduations, this will be communicated to you in advance for planning purposes. We pray for all our CDSBEO families and ask you to continue practicing safe social/physical distancing. God bless you and stay safe,
