Principal's Message

Welcome Back to School!

 
We hope you had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to another fantastic school year. We are looking forward to welcoming all 830 students to school on Tuesday September 3rd. (see below) Students should arrive no earlier than 8:00 and no later than 8:40 am. Each grade will have a designated meeting spot to find their name on a class list. Again, this year Tom Baines school is at capacity and will be capped at 830 students. Please note: we are not able to make any class changes as our classes are very full and moving a child into or out of a class will mean moving other students around as well. The teachers have spent hours on creating well-balanced classes that will provide ALL students with an excellent learning environment. Thank you for your understanding. 
If you are dropping off or picking up your child at school, we would ask that you respect the signage and not enter the school parking lot during the peak hours in the morning from 7:30- 8:45 am and 3:15 – 3:45 pm. Last year we underwent a traffic study at Tom Baines School and we are awaiting final direction from CBE and the City of Calgary. Until that time, we will continue with the original drop off and pick up restrictions to Edgepark Blvd. If you feel that you need to come into the school please feel free to park in the church parking lot just north of the school.
 On the first day of school (Sept 3, 2019) your student will only need to bring a backpack or bag, small notebook, pen or pencil the first day of school. Students will receive a locker however, that may not happen on the first day. If they have school supplies, please have them here for the second day (Wednesday) of school. Cafeteria service with a limited menu will start on Wednesday September 4th. 
A reminder: grade 6 students MUST remain on the school property during lunch unless they are going home for lunch and we would ask that you provide the school with a note. Grades 7, 8 & 9 students may go off the school campus at lunch with parent’s permission. This is an arrangement between you and your child. The school does not restrict students in grades 7, 8 & 9 to campus unless it is for disciplinary reasons. Please discuss your arrangement with your child.
 Here is the information for the first week of school:
 Tuesday September 3rd – Grade 6 meet in the Gym, grade 7 Centre Court, grade 8 to Burgundy POD and grade 9 to Green POD. This is where the class lists will be posted.
Grades 6, 7 and any new to Tom Baines Grade 8 & 9 students will stay for the entire day with a Walking Taco Lunch provided by the school. Feel free to send additional lunch items and a drink. Students that are returning to Tom Baines will be dismissed at 11:52 (lunch dismissal time) and City busses will be available.
For those students staying for the afternoon, City busses will be available at 3:30.
 Wednesday September 4th – All students will be in attendance for the regular Wednesday schedule form 8:45 AM – 1:50 PM. Busses will be available for pick up.
Students will continue with orientation and will have a mini – practice timetable.
 Thursday September 5th – Day A on students’ timetable. 
3:35 dismissal

 Friday September 6th – Day B on Students’ timetable.​
3:35 dismissal​
