FamilyOn Wednesday February 3rd, Donald Cram, Upper Canada District School Board Trustee for Ward 1 (Beckwith, Carleton Place and Mississippi Mills) will be hosting a presentation on “My Family Room” (MFR) at Almonte District High School at 6:00 pm in the Performance Arts Room.

MFR is a secure UCDSB website that allows parents to interact with any schools their children attend. It gives one-stop access to all electronic services provided to parents and legal guardians of UCDSB students.

Its goal is to enhance board-parent communication and provide 24/7 access to useful information about your children. This includes phone calls, emails, texts relating to absence, emergency, bus info and school events. Parents with children attending different schools can have them associated with a single “My Family Room” account.

This presentation is open to all parents with children attending ADHS, Naismith Memorial Public School, R. Tait McKenzie Public School, and Pakenham Public schools, and those considering enrolling their children in our schools.

Jeremy Hobbs, Superintendent of Human Resources and Operational Services, will be the presenter.

This presentation will be followed by an open house at ADHS from 7-8:30 pm to showcase the wonderful programs and extraordinary faculty at our 7-12 school. Staff members will be in their classrooms and current/future students and their parents are welcome to visit with teachers and explore all that ADHS has to offer.

There will be refreshments offered in the Performance Arts Room courtesy of the ADHS School Council along with musical entertainment provided by our talented students.

This is also a reminder that February 3rd is a PA Day so students do not come to school during the day, but are more than welcome to come with their parents in the evening.
