Good Afternoon Odessa families,

We hope you are all keeping well as we navigate the final weeks of the school year.  As you are aware, the school will remain closed for the remainder of the school year. We are inviting families to stop by the school for the retrieval of students' personal items. We thank you for your patience as we ensured that a safe protocol was in place. Student belongings have been bagged and labelled for pick up. For families who pre-ordered hot lunches and/or milk, refund cheques will be distributed at this time as well. 

We are inviting a parent/guardian to stop by the school to retrieve student belongings according to following schedule:

Families with Surnames beginning with A-L
