Catholic School Advisory Council (CSAC)

Established by the Ministry of Education, the mandate of the Council is to promote the involvement of parents in the school community and to help improve student learning.

The Mission Statement of the Council reads:

"The St. Alexander Catholic School Advisory Council in collaboration with parents, staff and children will endeavour to foster a positive, caring and peaceful environment where all will work co-operatively to strengthen and encourage the spiritual, emotional and academic growth of the St. Alexander School community."


The St. Alexander Catholic School Advisory Council functions as an advisory body to the school principal and Board especially with reviewing Board policies.

Meetings are held once a month.


Volunteers brighten lives. Call and find out how you can help at your child's school (e.g. Catholic School Advisory Council, Breakfast Club, readers, classroom helpers, library, field trips, arts and crafts).

Student Absences/Safe Arrival

To ensure the safety and well being of your child, we ask your continued cooperation in phoning the school if:

  • Your child will be absent
  • Your child will be late

If for any reason your child will be absent from school, we ask that you notify the school on the Safe Arrival line at 705-472-6376. You may leave a message on the school attendance voice mailbox outside regular school hours. Regular and punctual attendance is very important to your child's academic performance and overall success. Attendance is noted on the Ontario Provincial Report Card. Extended holidays and absences due to unforeseen circumstances should be communicated to your child's teacher in writing and forwarded to the office. Please note that repeated concerns about punctuality or absences may be addressed by the school administration.


It is the responsibility of parents of students with severe health concerns (e.g. peanut allergies, etc.) to provide recent medical documentation and to work with the school to develop a plan addressing the needs of the at-risk child while at school. It is the responsibility of the school-age child to exercise caution in avoiding allergens. It is the responsibility of the entire school community to assist in safeguarding the welfare of every child. Please refer to the school board policy on Anaphalaxsis for more information.
