Principal Update October 16, 2020


We have had another great week at Simon Fraser School.  The students continue to follow the safety protocols and there is incredible learning happening both online and in our face-to-face learning.  We hope parents will consider joining us in our second parent council meeting this coming Monday at 7:00 PM.  Here are the updates and reminders for this week:
Healthy Hunger
If your child(ren) is absent on the day of special lunch, please call in and inform the office before noon on Wednesdays on how to handle the order in advance.  Parents can request that the special lunch order be redistributed to a sibling or come picking the lunch up themselves at lunch time. If we do not hear from you, then the lunch will be donated to another child who may not have a lunch.  We will no longer be calling families to notify them.
If you have not ordered your fun lunch yet, please see the attachment below for additional information and to order.  
HH Parents_signup.pdfHub Student Pictures and Pictures Retake Day
If you are a Hub parent and you have not signed up to schedule a time for picture day on October 22, please RSVP to Ms. O'Shaughnessy at vhOShaughnessy@cbe.ab.ca. We are booking times for families to minimize contact with others and keep everyone safe.  This date will also be an opportunity for retakes for all other students.
Parent Council Meeting
Our next parent council meeting will take place this Monday October 19, 2020 at 7:00 PM.  Please click on the link here to attend virtually.  All meetings will take place on Microsoft Teams going forward. 
Vaccinations
Just a reminder of the date for the grade 7 vaccinations is October 29.   
Cold Weather on the Horizon
Please remind your child(ren) to continue to dress warm in the weeks ahead.  We want all students to spend some time outdoors.  We will have classrooms open for 20 minutes into the lunch break; however, after that students will need to head out into the outdoors. ​
OurSCHOOL Survey
Please find attached a letter detailing the OurSCHOOL survey we will be completing with grades 6-9 next week.  The survey is set up to measure certain areas of school climate that are affecting our students' success and well-being.   The results of the survey will support us to take action to reduce vulnerability and improve learning, engagement and well-being outcomes.  To be able to do this, requires us having the right information at the right time to make informed decisions. The results are anonymous and will be used in our school development planning as well as cycles of continuous improvement throughout the year. 
OurSCHOOL survey info.docx​Masks
A big thank you to all parents for packing extra masks and reminding their child to have an additional mask.  We did not have to provide many masks to students this week! 
I hope everyone stays warm and has some down time this weekend.  We look forward to welcoming all of your children back on Monday!
Sincerely,
Laureen Lailey
