Winter Weather, Report Cards, Winter Break

Dear Parents and Guardians,

This week the weather seems to have taken a turn towards colder temperatures.  We ask that you send your children to school prepared for any weather event that may occur.  Boots, mitts/gloves and hats are definitely needed, and for younger children you may want to send your child in a comfy pair of snow pants as well.  

When the weather reaches -20 degrees Celsius (with wind chill) or colder the school takes the following steps:

·      Teachers will be at the doors in the morning starting at 8:08am to welcome students in as they arrive, which means students will not be standing outside and lining up in the cold. 

·      If the weather continues to be -20 or colder (with wind chill) throughout the door, students will remain inside for recess and lunch recess. 

·      If the weather warms up, students will go outside for recess and lunch recess, which means they will need to put on winter accessories to be comfortable outside. 

·      If your child comes to school without proper winter attire, we will do our best to help them out 


It's Report Card Time!

 Report cards will be sent home with your children on Thursday, December 16th.  In addition to the paper copy, you may view a digital copy on your My CBE/Powerschool account.  


Winter Break

 We thank you for sending your kids to school each day healthy and happy, and we hope that they have fully enjoyed the first half of the school year.   Students will be on winter break from Saturday, December 18th thru to Wednesday, January 5th, with a return to school on Thursday, January 6th.


We would like to wish each and every one of you a Happy Holiday and a Happy New Year.


Colin McCracken
