Have a Wonderful Summer!

“There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it’s going to be a butterfly.” B Fuller

Our entire staff wish all our students and their families a stay safe and a wonderful summer!  What a challenging and difficult year we have endured together.  We made it through successfully.  Congratulations on a strong finish.  We began the year cautious but eager to learn and ended with a new perspective of change and flexibility and an understanding that education, friendships and cooperation are important and all happened here. 

Thank you to all our families for keeping our community safe.  Thank you for wearing masks, sending water bottles, keeping children home when they were sick and for picking up sick children quickly, respecting social distancing, and for respecting the Covid 19 protocols.  Thank you as well for the families that were isolated and quarantined and for your patience with on line learning.  We were able to have Sound Kreations dance residency, Jump Math resources, French Improve with Matt, Charlotte Diamond, visits from Storykeeper Hal Eagletail,  Ever Active Schools, le Carnaval week, literacy and well being resources with your support.    


Congratulations to all our staff that has moved on to new adventures this year.  Mme M. Martin and Mme Briard went on a maternity leaves, Mme Roberts moved to the States with her family in March,  Mme Labrecque will be moving on to David Thompson School, and Mme Shirley retired this year.  We would like to thank Mme Lewis, Mme Morrow, and Mme Lisa for covering during these leaves.   


We want to acknowledge our newcomers to our school community. Welcome Mme Lindsay and Mme Lidia to our Office.  We would like to welcome Mme Chang as our music teacher and Mme Puchalski as our Physical Education teacher.  We would like to send huge congratulations to Mme Morrow and Mme Lewis who have confirmed positions at William Reid next year.  We have not yet staffed all positions as we are waiting until August when we know more about our enrolment.   

Grade Configurations

We are expecting to have the following grade configurations and teacher supports for the 2021-22 school year:

  • 2 AM Kindergarten classes
  • 2 PM Kindergarten classes
  • 3 Grade 1 classes
  • 3 Grade 2 classes
  • 2 Grade 3 classes
  • 2 Grade 4 classes
  • or 4 Grade 3 / 4 classes
  • 1.0 PE teacher 
  • 0.5 Music teacher
  • 0.4 FTE Support Teacher 

These configurations are based on our best estimates for the number of students we expect in each grade. As with any year, our student population may change come fall. If numbers shift up or down at any grade we may have to re-organize in the fall. Class placements will be available on MyCBE/PowerSchool accounts on August 30 and first day procedures posted on the  William Reid School Website and shared by e-mail or School Messenger.  Teachers will be out on Supervision on Wednesday September 1 and should you need help finding your child’s teacher. 


Parents who have registered their child to ride the bus will be able to see their bus information in their MyCBE/PowerSchool account. Staff will meet students at the bus and direct them to their prospective meet areas. The first day that registered Kindergarten students may ride the bus is Wednesday September 1.

Covid-19 Update 

We will have COVID-19 updates to share in August.  Please look for an email from the school about our latest re-entry plan and guidelines.
