Ward Weekly Update


For the week of Monday December 10th – Friday December 14th, 2018



Hello Parents & Guardians.  Below, please find our Mary Ward Weekly Update.  This was also sent out electronically through School Messenger.


Welcome to Week 15

Tip of the Week:

  • Our Math Department offers extra help through peer and teacher assistance every Monday- Thursday from 3 – 4 p.m. in the Math Department. 

  • There are a few challenges with the new Safe Arrival program to call/email in your child’s absences.  If you are having challenges when calling in absences from a phone that is NOT listed with the school. Please note the following:  When making a call from the phone, other than the home phone identified in Trillium, the parent is requested to provide the home phone number.  If the parent enters a different phone number when prompted, the parent will not be authenticated to make the absence call.  The Board personnel have tested this system and it seems to be working.  Here are a few steps provided by the Board when calling from an unknown phone:
    1.        Call 1-833-251-3286 from an unknown number (Non-Trillium recognized phone number)
    2.        Press 3 for student attendance
    3.        System will ask you to enter a phone number registered with the school (Trillium)
    4.        After that, please follow the same prompts.
    The parent can also use the mobile or web applications to report an absence.
