Welcome Back

Hello / Bonjour École Tuscany School families,

Welcome back to school - Bonne rentrée scolaire!

We hope everyone had a wonderful summer with a chance to rest and relax and are ready and excited for school to begin. Our teachers have been busy prepping their classrooms over the last 3 days and are so excited to welcome the students back.

Important Reminders

A few important reminders for new and returning families. The below information can be found on our Tuscany School website.

Our school hours for our French Immersion and English program are:

Monday - ThursFri
Morning 8:27 - 11:308:27-12:40
Lunch 11:30 - 12:10 
Afternoon 12:10 - 2:55

If you are running late, and will not make it on time for the bell at 8:27, please bring your child to the front office door.

Our School Calendar can be found here; including Kinder Friday dates.

Traffic Safety

Ensuring our students get to school safely is everyone's responsibility. Please be mindful of crosswalks, parking rules and speed limits when you are near our school, especially during the morning drop-off and afternoon dismissal times. The parking lot south of the school is reserved for staff. Students should not be in the parking lot and it should not be used as a drop off or pick-up area or as a place to tie your dogs. Please do not cut across to the main sidewalk in front of the garbage bins to access the school grounds. The parking lot is a dangerous place and we would like to ensure the safe access of our students to our playground. Parking in front of the School (busing zone) during School days as well as portions of Tuscany Hill is prohibited and monitored by Calgary Parking Authority.


Kiss and Drop Area

The area from the parking lot to the three-way stop on Tuscany Hill is a no parking zone, as indicated by the many No Parking signs. As such there is no parking at any time in this area throughout the day. This would include Kindergarten drop off and pick up. Rather, this area is used as a Kiss and Drop, where you can actively drop your children off and then proceed on with the rest of your day. Volunteers with current Police Security Clearance are always appreciated and if you would like to help in this area you can contact the Kiss n Drop coordinator at

School Council News

Lookout on September 1 for large yard welcome signs, located on the west side of the school on Tuscany Hill NW. This is a great photo opportunity for the first day of school.

Mark your calendars for September 8th at 6:30pm for our first, in person, school council meeting of the year. The Social Committee is also planning a very special welcome to parents and guardians including refreshments, food and fun prizes. This is an opportunity for parents/guardians to mingle and feel welcomed to our school and to our School Council. More details will be sent home early next week.  Please sign up for school council emails here: and please visit the Tuscany School Council webpage.

We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow morning!

À bientôt,​

Congratulations on you’re retirement Ms Soroff! You will be missed!

RT @familiesmatter: Some great insight into why young children repeat the same thing over and over! While it may be tiring for parents, repetition helps strengthen their neural pathways, helping them to learn. #YYC #YYCfamilies #parenting #youngchildren

RT @yyCBEdu: Thank you for your patience during the unexpected challenges with registration. We’ve worked with the vendor to make improvements to the system and it has been reopened. Families are now able to submit their registrations: #WeAreCBE 🧵

A very enthusiastic group of grade 3 & 4 students working on a project as engineers, mathematicians, artists and collaborators, demonstrating their deep and concrete understanding of place value and number. #100000

RT @yyCBEdu: Today's the opening of kindergarten registration. It's an exciting time and we're experiencing a lot of web traffic. Please be patient as you navigate through the website. Registration is not first come, first served. There's lots of time to submit your registration! #WeAreCBE
