Kindergarten Registration Begins January 11, 2021
If a Student is Sick or has COVID-19 Symptoms | Updated Oct. 30
One month of in-person learning during a pandemic and we are still doing great! Again, I just have to thank all or our families for the support you offer to your children and to us. At the risk of understating the issue, it has been a different experience starting back to school during a pandemic. At the same time, things have occurred that have made us an even stronger community. We have adjusted our re-entry plan slightly to include:At lunchtime: Grade 1, 2 and 3 students eat first and our grades 4, 5 & 6 students come into their rooms to eat at 12:13. The Brakeman Foundation continues to donate white milk for our students to be distributed at lunchtime. If you do NOT want your child to receive milk, please inform the school.Grade 6 AMA Safety Patrols started this week but will NOT be providing patrol service at lunchtime. If your child goes home for lunch and crossed 146th Ave, please keep in mind that there will be NO crossing guards. We overrode the “one-way only" hallway in the front hall during our fire drill to accommodate 2 classes exiting the building at once and still maintain physical distancingMrs. Grady is bringing library books to classrooms for “no-touch" browsing and then signing books out for the students. When books have been returned, they will go into a 'quarantine bin' before being re-shelved. Grade 6 student patrols will be starting on Monday, Sept 28th with new protocols in place to maintain physical distancing and sanitize equipment.Our grade 1, 2 & 3 teachers are currently working out a way to set up home reading books without compromising our sanitation protocols. Stay tuned for news on how this will look. Reminders:Sorry to nag, but…A reminder that the creative playground is closed before and after schoolTraffic continues to be a concern. Please remember No U-turns are allowed in a playground zoneJay-walking is illegalChildren cannot be dropped off in the staff parking lotDo not cut across the staff parking lot with your childrenThere is no stopping or parking in the bus zone directly in front of the schoolPlease have your child keep an extra, labelled mask available at school. All students were provided with reusable masks at the beginning of the year (the CBE distributed over 300,000 reusable masks). Providing students with disposable masks if they forget to bring a mask is not a sustainable practice long term.
