It is hard to believe that there are just a few days left of our school year. We are so grateful to all of our families who have supported students to have a successful and safe school year despite the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you for taking care of our students and our team of teachers and staff this year!

Teachers and the school leadership team have spent this month organizing classroom configurations for next year. We appreciate your trust in our professionalism as we create class groupings, taking into consideration multiple variables, that ensure an optimum learning environment for every child. Your child's teacher will send a welcome email on or just before August 31, 2021, so you will know where your child will line up and who will greet them on the first day of school. Thank you for your ongoing support for Varsity Acres School and its students this year—it has been a pleasure to work with this community as we ensure all of our students are set up to thrive. .

Each school year brings changes in staffing as we add new staff members and say goodbye to others whose career choices take them in different directions. This year, we would like to congratulate Mme Guylaine McTague on her retirement and wish her all this best in this next chapter of her life. We would like to welcome Mme Kelley Ireland to Varsity Acres School as our new Physical Education specialist as M. Trevor moves into the classroom. Should there be any other staffing changes, we will update you in the fall when we return to school.

We anticipate that the year will start with many of the same COVID-19 protocols in place. Students are familiar with them so adjusting in the fall will be easier this year. We will have more information about what protocols will remain Closer to the first day of school. We will communicate that with you as information becomes available.

Our school office will be open until June 30, 2021 at 1:30pm and will re-open for email or phone inquiries on August 27, 2021 at 8:00am

On behalf of the staff at Varsity Acres school, I would like to wish all of our families a safe, fun and relaxing summer. We look forward to seeing everyone again when we return to school on September 1, 2021.

Have a wonderful break!

 

Meghan Morden, Principal
