Dear SJA Parents and Guardians,

As you are aware, the re-registration season is upon us and we have recently sent home
packages with your child(ren). We value your loyalty and commitment to our school
community and would love to continue our partnership by offering priority enrollment for our
current SJA families.

We kindly ask that you take a moment to review your financial statement and complete the
information in the package and make any necessary changes to your place of residence,
employment, email changes or any medical information that the administration should be
aware of.

Please be aware that in order to secure your child’s enrolment, it is imperative that you submit
your re-enrollment package and fees no later than February 12, 2018 at 4:00pm. After this

the opportunity to secure any vacant positions.

Dear Parent(s) and Guardian(s), 

This email is to inform you that we experienced an unexpected fire alarm this morning in the building. SJA staff did an amazing job evacuating the students safely and in a timely fashion from the building. Students were outside for ten minutes waiting in line while we followed proper protocol to ensure every child was accounted for. At this time, we then made our way over to Meadowvale rinks to have shelter from the cold. Once the fire department gave the go ahead we returned back to the building. There is no need for alarm or concern the building and students are safe and secure.


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me, Mrs. Smith at bsmith@stjudesacademy.com or Mrs. Hocevar at hhocevar@stjudesacademy.com.
