Principal's Message

Wednesday Principal Update - Oct. 21

Happy Wednesday, Dr. George Stanley Families!
 
Cold weather has arrived, and our students have risen to the challenge of dressing for the weather and still being able to fully participate in outdoor activities. Thank you for sending your students with needed snow pants, mittens, coats and winter footwear. We will continue to utilize all outdoor spaces at our school so that we can provide students with active, safe, opportunities for learning and socialization.
 
Students are doing well with regard to remembering to bring and wear masks inside school. Our supply of disposable masks in the main office is very limited, however we will always provide students with an emergency mask, should they need it. It is impressive that in a school of approximately 700 face-to-face students, we are averaging just 3 or 4 forgotten masks each day.
 
We have been working carefully with students regarding digital citizenship and responsible use of social media. Please take a moment with your child to review your family’s expectations concerning their responsible use of apps such as TikTok, Instagram and Snapchat. It’s helpful for parents of Grade 5, 6, and 7 students to note that the minimum age requirements for most of these platforms is 13 years of age. Most platforms do include parental controls, ways to have shared account access, with your children and privacy settings.
 
Hallowe’en Activity at DGS -- In keeping with CBE guidelines, students are allowed to wear their Hallowe’en costume all day on Thursday, October 29. If students choose to participate, they must arrive at school in their costume and be prepared to wear it for the duration of the day. Normal mask and safety protocols will apply. Please leave costume accessories depicting weapons at home. Homeroom teachers may plan a short, COVID-safe activity for their student cohort during the day. Treats should be kept at home this year as students may not share food or drink.
