Principal's Message

Staggered Entry - School is Back

​First Day Back
To assist in adjusting to new rules, practices and procedures our school will welcome students back on a staggered schedule.  The purpose of the schedule is:
To ease the transition of students into school,
To spend time with smaller groups familiarizing them with our school health measures,
To facilitate physical distancing while teaching the protocols of our health measures.
We are sharing the schedule with you now to aid in the planning all families engage in as the start of the school year approaches.  More details will be provided to you around our specific measures on August 28th.
During staggered entry, students will follow the same routines as they would on a day when everyone is attending, just fewer students. 
September 1:  Those with last names beginning A-K will attend.  If there are younger siblings with a different last name, they should attend with their older siblings. 
September 2:  Those with last names beginning L-Z will attend.  If there are younger siblings with a different last name, they should attend with their older siblings. 
To decrease congestion during entry and exits, bell times are slightly staggered for the duration of the school year.  
Schedule 1:  Kindergarten, Grades 2, 3, 4
8:08am:  Soft Entry
8:10am:  School Start
2:53pm:  End of School Day
Schedule 2:  Grades 1, 5, 6
8:18am:  Soft Entry
8:20am:  School Start
3:03pm:  End of School Day
Students will be exiting through the doors in which they arrived. Siblings should pick a suitable meeting area outisde the school.
We undertstand that first days of school are an exciting and sometimes nervous time.  We ask that parents say their goodbyes outside, and wish their children a great. day.  Parents should plan on meeting their children at the end of the day outside, and not plan on meeting students inside the school. 
Lunch:  More information will be coming out on August 28th around lunch, but please note that students will have lunch in their homerooms within their cohorts.  There will be three lunch periods to accommodate social distancing and sanitzing.  A more detailed explanation is coming on August 28th. 
September 3:  All students, as per the schedule above. 
If you have questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
 
Colin McCracken, Principal​
