I hope everyone had a safe and happy summer and is returning refreshed and invigorated. The staff are all excited to be returning to a wonderful year at Rundle and can’t wait for the students to join us on Thursday, August 16. We know this is an exciting time for students and families, as well.
Bussing maps and schedules will be posted online on our website sometime Monday, August 13. Parents are encouraged to visit the website and select the bus route and stop for their child(ren). Please remember the bus route letters may change from year to year, even if the stop location remains the same. This means that your child might have taken Bus A last year and the same stop might be Bus D this year. It is important that you and your child know both the bus route and stop for this year.
Classroom teachers will be contacting all families sometime before the end of the day Wednesday to let you know who your child’s teacher will be and where they are to meet that first morning. Parents are very welcome to come and remain with students until they enter the school with their teacher if you wish but staff will also be meeting each bus and will ensure all students arrive at the correct spot. We know some children are particularly nervous on their first day of school and we have many people available to ensure that every student has a warm and welcoming reception.
There will be a package of information and forms coming home with your child on Monday, August 20th. Please read through the information and return the forms requiring signatures. If you have any questions about the forms, don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher for clarification.
If you have moved over the summer, please contact us in the office to give us the new address. We are transitioning to a new student information system and it is very important that we have correct addresses in the new system.
Student picture day is Monday August 27. This will be individual pictures and group class pictures will take place later in the fall.
All families are invited to our welcome back pancake breakfast on Friday, August 31st. Students will come down with their class and parents and siblings are welcome to join us. We will start serving at 8:00am and will keep going until everyone is fed! We would love parent volunteers to help out with setting up, serving and clean up so if you are able to assist, please call us in the office.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or the office.
Welcome to another great year at Rundle!
