The safety of our students is a priority at St. Joseph Catholic School. In order to ensure the safe arrival of each student our attendance is monitored each morning and afternoon. It is an expectation for the parent/guardian to notify the school regarding late arrivals and absences. The secretary makes contact with the home of any student whose absence has not been explained. Our safe arrival program relies on effective communication between the home and school.
We require a phone call to the school office if your child is going to be absent or late. You may also call and leave a voice mail at (613)275-2353.
An additional option to reporting an absence is:
* Using your mobile device, download and install the SchoolMessenger app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store (or from the links at The first time you use the app, select Sign Up to create your account. Select Attendance then Report an Absence.
* Use the SafeArrival website, The first time you use the website, select Sign Up to create your account. Select Attendance then Report an Absence.
We are obligated to ensure the safety of all students regarding daily attendance. Supervision is available beginning at 9:00 a.m.

Future absences can be reported at any time.

MLI Homestay- Host an International Student

The CDSBEO, in partnership with MLI Homestay, is currently seeking families to host international students ranging from Grades 7-12. There are opportunities to host students for short-term stays, for one semester, or for the whole school year. MLI Homestay will pay a supplemental fee to compensate for costs associated with hosting a student.

Whether you have children at the elementary or high school level it could be a very fulfilling experience for all ages. Hosting an international student is a unique way to share our culture and local communities, while learning about international cultures and customs from these students.
