Estimadas familias,

Yet again our community and the entire province is facing increasing pressure and challenges related to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Our central purpose at Escuela Eugene Coste is to continue to provide a safe, caring and welcoming environment that puts student learning and well-being first. Since the beginning of this school year, the CBE has committed to maintaining health guidelines that exceeded those mandated by the provincial government. Enhanced hygiene, cohorting, staying home when sick and masking work in combination to reduce the risk of spreading illness so that our schools can remain open for students. I am grateful to all of you for working with your children to understand why we continue to implement these practices. While we cannot predict the future, our sights continue to be set on creating phenomenal learning experiences for your children.

Student Code of Conduct: Last week we touched on our two primary rules: Play Safe and Be Kind. We are a school of young learners and we must ensure that we work with students using language and strategies that are appropriate for them. The CBE has a system-wide Student Code of Conduct and Progressive Discipline Policy that underpins this work. Both documents are available for viewing on our school website:
