School calendar: Dates and events for the 2022/23 school year
Parent Council meets during the school day, usually on the first Wednesday of each month. Our three areas of focus are fundraising, developing school community and student outreach events. The Parent Council may also be asked to give input into other school-related initiatives and events. All parents are welcome to join.
Uniforms can be purchased through Premium Promoworx in Fergus. There is a discount if uniforms are ordered during our bulk sales, which are held three times a year (July, October and March). All uniform orders are delivered to the school. Uniform requirements can be downloaded here.

Typically we have two hot lunch days a month, a Hot Dog Day and a Pizza Day. All hot lunches are pre-ordered for the term in September and February. Order forms will be sent home with students.
- If buses are running in Guelph, ERCS will be open to all students who can safely travel to and from school.
- If buses are cancelled in both Centre Wellington and Guelph, ERCS will be closed.
On snow days when the school is open, ERCS will have an alternative learning program for students who come to school. Classes may be combined. Students who are absent will not be responsible for work that is missed on these days. Please note that remote learning will not be available and work will not be posted online on these days. However, students always have access to Google classroom and are welcome to work on any outstanding assignments. Please call or email the school to let us know your student will be absent.
If your child is going to be absent or late, please phone the school office at 519-824-1890 or email email@example.com by 9:00am.
The deadline to apply for tuition assistance through FAST is May 1st. Application instructions can be found here.
Volunteers are a valuable part of our school. There are lots of opportunities to get involved. To keep our students and volunteers safe, all volunteers must complete SOS (Safeguard Operating Standard) training and submit a VSC police check. SOS renewal happens each year in the Fall.
