Welcome Back!

​We are so excited to be welcoming many of you back to school this week! Our staff have been working tirelessly over the past few weeks to plan, organize, and ensure that we are doing everything we can to make our school as physically and mentally safe for everyone. Our first couple of days back have been a wonderful opportunity to practice new routines, and spend extra time getting to know each learner with fewer children in the classroom at once. The students have done an amazing job adjusting to new ways of entering and moving through the building!

We know you have many questions at this time, so our teachers will be reaching out to you via phone over the next few weeks. It will take a little while to get in touch with everyone this way, so in the meantime, please do use email to contact your child's teacher if there is something pressing you need to ask or discuss. As well, Mr. Eakins, Mrs. Boyce and I are available via telephone. I'll try to be outside around the bell times to chat if you like, as we are limiting the amount of people in the office for now. Thank you for your support encouraging children not to use the playground structure before and after school. Students are more than welcome to return to the playground later in the afternoon - we are simply hoping to limit groups gathering at the bell. 

Again, we can't thank you enough for the wonderful children you are sending to us this year, and for the opportunity to care for them as they return to learning in the classroom.

Please reach out to us if you need anything at all.
