MDI Notice of Collection 2022 St. Luke

Waterloo Catholic District School Board (WCDSB) will be conducting a variety of school climate surveys to collect information from students, staff, and parent/guardians.  We are committed to providing a safe, caring, and inclusive place for everyone in our schools.  The purpose of the school climate surveys is to assess the perceptions of safety (e.g., from students, staff, and parent/guardians), make informed planning decisions about programs to help prevent bullying and promote safe and inclusive schools, determine the effectiveness of programs on an ongoing basis, and build and sustain a positive school climate.  More information below.

Bell’s Let’s Talk DAY!

TODAY is Bell Let’s Talk Day and we’re joining in to help drive meaningful progress in mental health

COVID-19 has affected every aspect of our lives, including our mental health. However, tools are available to support ourselves and each other

Since 2010, Canadians and people around the globe have joined in the world’s largest conversation around mental health on Bell Let’s Talk Day. Together we have taken big steps to reduce the stigma around mental health issues and inspire one another to take action and help create a Canada where everyone can access the mental health support they need. In a recent survey conducted by Nielsen Consumer Insights, 82% of Canadians now say they are comfortable speaking with others about mental health, compared to only 42% in 2012. By joining in and taking action, we are all helping to make a real difference.

This year’s Bell Let’s Talk Day campaign highlights the ways that we can support ourselves and those we care about through actions like listening, being there and talking. Every Canadian can play a part in their communities, workplaces, schools and at home.

That’s why we’re joining in the 12th annual Bell Let’s Talk Day to help create positive change.

You can also find resources, learn more about some of the organizations providing meaningful mental health supports and services throughout Canada and download the Bell Let’s Talk toolkit to begin your own conversation about mental health at home, school or in the workplace.


Keep listening, talking and being there for ourselves and each other.







Dear St. Luke Lightning,

We appreciate your attention to completing the Covid-19 School Screening Tool each day and thank you all for your support as we continue to navigate new Covid-19 protocols.

As we continue working to provide a safe and healthy learning environment for our students – while also strictly adhering to all public health guidance concerning COVID-19 screening and isolation requirements – we will, from time to time, experience some challenges in ensuring an appropriate number of school staff are available to ensure the safety and security of all.

This could periodically result in the need to switch some classes from in-person learning to virtual learning for short periods of time. We will endeavour to communicate this with our community as early as possible. That said, please check for email communication from the school each morning to monitor updates and information regarding your child’s learning in the event we need to pivot to short periods of virtual learning.

Thank you again for your understanding.

Stay safe and take care,

Ms. Kavanagh

BUS 264

Good Morning Lightening Community,

We have been informed that BUS 264 does not have a driver and therefore, will be a minimum of 60 minutes late at dismissal today.

We are encouraging all families to try to make alternate arrangements for your child at 2:50 dismissal for pick up.

If you are unable to make arrangements for your child to be picked up at 2:50 please email to notify her that your child will have to wait for the hour or so delayed bus.

As you have been made aware all phone lines and internet connections are down at St Luke, so please ensure to email Mrs. MacKay with any notifications regarding your child she may need to know.

We appreciate your continued understanding and patience while we navigate through technical difficulties and staffing for bussing today.
