Good to Know:

  • The Dress Code is a part of our school pride. Roslyn students wear their choice of navy blue tunic, skirt, jumper, slacks or jogging pants (no jeans); navy cardigan, pullover or sweatshirt (no logos); and solid white or pale blue blouse, shirt, turtleneck or t-shirt. Roslyn t-shirts are required for physical education classes and school outings.
  • School hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Kindergarten students are released 10 minutes earlier at the end of the day. Students are not to be left unattended in the school yard before 9 a.m. The Westmount YMCA provides before-school supervision at the school gym for a fee.
  • Pickup & Drop-off is on Grosvenor Ave., north of the school yard. Students who bike to school must lock their bikes to the rack on Grosvenor Ave.
  • Bussing is provided for Kindergarteners who live more than 0.6 km away and Grade 1 to 6 students who live more than 1.4 km away. Accommodation bussing is provided on a case-by-case basis. During the month of August, entitled students receive a bus pass from the School Board. Please tie it to your child’s school bag.
  • Daycare Bussing is available to after school for students going to St. Columba House, Tyndale, St. Georges, and Centre Greene.
  • Access to Roslyn for parents and visitors is permitted through the front door only. All persons must sign in for a visitor’s pass. During school hours all other doors remain locked. An appointment is required if you wish to meet with a staff member.
  • Lunches are eaten in the lunch room under the supervision of monitors. This is not a cafeteria.
  • Children can bring lunch from home or if you prefer, hot lunches are available each day through Merenda, an EMSB-approved caterer. Meranda offer reasonably priced and healthy menus. Hot lunches are delivered to the lunch room. Order forms are sent out periodically.
  • Pizza lunch is offered by Home and School 17 times a year and is Roslyn's biggest fundraiser. Order forms are sent out in September.
  • After school activities offer a broad range of subjects and activities for your child. Children registered for activities starting at 4:35 p.m. will automatically be enrolled in the After-School Supervision program. For your child to take part in these after-school activities, families must join Quebec Home and School Association at a cost of $20 per family. This covers the cost of insurance for each child.
