Supervision of students begins 15 minutes prior to school start times. For safety reasons students should only arrive at school when supervisors are on duty outside. Children will remain outdoors to greet and play with each other. If the weather is very cold (-20 C with wind chill) or very wet, they will be invited to come inside the school through their designated doors and sit in the hallways by their classrooms. When entering the school, children are asked to enter calmly through their designated doors and, in order to help us maintain a clean and safe environment, remove wet and/or muddy footwear.
It is important that all children have the opportunity for fresh air and free play and therefore we provide a recess break each day for 15 minutes and students go outside at lunch for approximately 30 minutes. Please help your children develop good habits for appropriate dress so that they are prepared to be outside each day. We recommend that every child keep gloves and a toque in a jacket pocket. Some families may wish to consider providing an extra pair of pants for wet/chinook days. If the weather is too cold (-20C with wind chill) or too wet, students will remain indoors and will be supervised by our staff.
