Step 2:     Register by selecting the “Get Started Now” and following the steps

A Message from our Superintendent

posted Jun 9, 2017, 12:37 PM by Linda Ladouceur

Dear Parents/Guardians of St. Michael – Fitzroy,

The images and stories of the recent flooding in the Fitzroy region have been difficult to comprehend.  I am certain that those of us who were not affected by this would not have a deep understanding of the challenges and inconvenience that have resulted by this natural disaster.  However, we wanted to assure you that we are thinking of you and that we sincerely care.  Your children in our schools are our highest priority, and we continue to support them through this challenging time in any way we can.  To that end, I would encourage you to continue to let Mr. Delahunt know of any needs you may have for additional supports, especially where it involves supports for your children.  Mr. Delahunt can access our Board's emergency response fund which can assist with basic needs such as food, clothing, and other costs some of you have faced as a result of the flooding. We continue to think of you and will keep you in our prayers during this time of renovation and renewal.

                                                                          Steve McCabe

                                                                          Superintendent
