​​Please visit our COVID-19 page for the most up-to-date information. Our plan is subject to change throughout the school year as more information becomes available.​

One way parents/guardians can make a meaningful difference for students is by participating on our school’s parent society. Parent societies are a formal group of parents, incorporated under the Societies Act for the purpose of raising funds for the school. A society is a separate legal entity from the school council. The school principal is not part of this group. More information can be found in our CBE Administrative Regulation 5001 – School Councils and School/Parent Societies.​​

Parent Society

The Emily Follensbee School Children's Society 

Our Parent Society is known as the Emily Follensbee School (EFS) Children's Society. We are very fortunate to have an active support base in our school and we want to encourage Parents/Guardians to attend monthly meetings. Because we are a smaller school community, having your participation is extremely important as it helps make the school year a successful one!
