Principal's Message

Principals' Update June 22, 2020

​Principals’ Update – June 22, 2020
What an incredible year this has been. We have appreciated everything you have done to support your child(ren)’s learning in school and learning remotely. Your understanding, flexibility and willingness to embrace ambiguity as we adapt to a new way of being has served your children well.
Report Cards On-Line
It is that time of year to report student achievement through a report card. The report cards will be available digitally on June 26th . We are asking you to view the report card through MyCBE/PowerSchool. Once logged in, you will see an additional tab titled “Report Card”. Select this tab to view the report card. Should you wish to have a printed report card, please contact the school to arrange a time for you to safely collect it from the school on June 29th or 30th. 
Re-entry Planning for 2020-21
On June 10, Education Minister, Adriana LaGrange and Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Deena Hinshaw announced the preferred and likely scenario is that students will return to daily in-school classes in September. The government will share its final decision by August 1 st regarding which scenario will be in place at the beginning of the school year. The government has also provided public health guidance for schools and the measures that would be required or suggested to reduce risks.
The CBE has a task force responsible for making plans for re-entry. This task force is preparing for the three different scenarios (normal operations, inschool classes with additional health measures and at-home learning). The team will consider these new government guidelines and how they will be implemented in our schools and workplaces. We expect that we may have to move between scenarios at different points in the year based on government direction as the COVID-19 situation evolves.
Class Assignments for 2020-21
We are continuing to refine the class lists for 2020-21 with our staff. As you can imagine, the process for creating these lists is complex. There are a number of things we need to consider and balance, such as gender, language, learning complexities and styles, academic achievement, social and emotional needs, and relationships. We are making plans for re-entry and preparing for the three different scenarios that will classroom assignments as well.
Prior to school opening on September 1st , you will receive an email from the classroom teacher welcoming your child to their class. They will also be giving you information as to what the re-entry process will look like.
Staffing
At this point in time, we are continuing to staff our school. We are in a position to hire a part-time Physical Education teacher, a part-time Education Assistant, and a new Lunchroom Supervisor.
Mrs. Gregoire will be starting her maternity leave shortly. We wish her well as she welcomes the new addition to her family. She will be on leave for the 2020-21 school year. Sadly, we need to say goodbye to Ms. Brandt and Ms. Amerongen as their contracts have ended. Both will be joining the substitute roster and we hope to see them back at Dr. Roberta Bondar School. Don Lukinuk, our Facility Operator was on leave and has now been detached from our school. His temporary replacement, Louis Santos has been returned to the Absence Relief roster. We are pleased to welcome Alex Lee as our new Facility Operator.
Transportation
Due to the impact of COVID-19 on our system and families, CBE has extended the transportation pre-registration deadline to June 30, 2020. Register online using your MyCBE / PowerSchool account.
Reasons to Pre-Register 
 If you do not pre-register for transportation service prior to the end of June, we will not include your address as bus routes are planned. This year, routes will not be posted on our website. Only registered students will receive stop information for their primary address. If you do not register, you will not be able to view a stop location for your child(ren). It may take several weeks to add a student to a route in the fall, and congregated stop locations are only reviewed once per year. As a result, your stop location may be much further away from your home, as your address was not included in the route planning. 
 The use of a ZPass ridership card is mandatory to assist in contact tracing, and only registered riders are provided a ZPass ridership card. Families may request a replacement card through their PowerSchool Parent Account. 
 There is no requirement to pay at the time of registration, and there is no financial penalty if you register for bus service and cancel before the cancellation deadline of September 30, 2020.
Radon Testing
Earlier this year, a radon gas study was conducted in 27 CBE schools. This work was initiated as part of a change in the building code when our new schools were designed and constructed and included several older schools.
Detectors were placed throughout the school by a certified Radon Professional and left for about three months between October and March of this school year. The devices were then sent for analysis.
The CBE Indoor Environmental Quality team received the reports.The results confirm that the levels in our school are well within the Health Canada guideline for radon (below 200 Bq/m3) and no further action is required at this time.
We would like to wish all of our Grade 6 students well as they move on to Junior High School. If you are moving schools or communities, we hope you have a good year in your new location.
To all of our families, have a wonderful summer break, and we will see you back on Tuesday, September 1st! 
Laine Mulholland, Principal 
Kim Howden, Assistant Principal
