Welcome Back 2022 -2023

Dear Cedarbrae Families,

We hope you all enjoyed a restful and fun filled long weekend!  The first four days of the 2022/2023 school year at Cedarbrae school are officially behind us and we are looking forward to a wonderful year ahead with students! I have really enjoyed my first few days here getting to know the amazing student's families and staff at Cedarbrae.  I will be outside the front doors most mornings greeting the buses and students as they walk across the street.  I am excited to meet all of our families so please do feel free to say hi and introduce yourself if you see me in the mornings.

Each week, I will send out a message to families that includes highlights from the week and information about upcoming events.  We have several new families as well as many returning families at Cedarbrae School this year and we have provided some information below to some frequently asked questions.

Soft Start

To ease congestion during entry times and support student's ability to begin learning activities teachers will be greeting students at the doors each morning between 8:05 am - 8:18 am. 

Lunch Time

Our lunch time schedule this year is from 12:00 -12:48.

 Students will have recess for the first part of lunch from 12:00 – 12:25 and will eat in their classrooms for the second half of lunch from 12:25 – 12:48. 

Allergies

If your child has a food allergy  the school needs to be aware of it, please ensure you have completed the Student Health Plan and submitted it to the school. If you would like a paper copy please let the office know
