Wednesday Principal Update - September 21

Dear DGS Families, 

It’s hard to believe, but we are now into our third full week of school! Students and teachers have made great use of learning opportunities using the natural spaces around our school. Students have spent time at the ridge and the ponds in Cranston as a means of connecting to the land where we gather, trees and forests, our interactions with ecosystems and learning about biodiversity. We are very fortunate to be in the middle of a community with so much natural space available. This week has also marked our Grade 8 students being able to participate in Riverwatch, an award-winning guided river experience on the Bow River. The purpose of Riverwatch is to explore a section of our local river during a 10 km raft float trip. Along the way, students make shoreline stops to perform water sampling and water quality testing above and below a wastewater treatment plant and use that data to understand the health of the local ecosystem. 

 

Learning Opportunities Related to September 30 National Day of Truth and Reconciliation 

During the week of September 26 to September 30, students will be participating in a variety of learning opportunities across all Grade Levels related to acknowledging and understanding our National Day of Truth and Reconciliation. Details will follow from classroom teachers related to specific learning activities at different grade levels.  Our students are invited to our Learning Commons to explore our updated collection of fiction and non-fiction resources related to Indigenous Learning, Indigenous Histories, Residential Schools and their survivors, and how we understand the world around us. Students and staff are encouraged to wear Orange on Thursday September 29. We look forward to sharing our learning from this week, as well as our ongoing work in this area, with you. 

 

Meet the Teacher Night 

Thank you all so much for the incredible support of our school community as we held Meet the Teacher Night as a more informal, family and community centered event. The feedback we have received so far is that the event was greatly appreciated, and families were excited for the opportunity to connect with teachers and with each other. Please know that you can reach out to your child’s teachers at any time for a more formal conversation about their progress, growth, and achievement. 
 

Student Assessment Information in PowerSchool 

Starting September 30, assessment information related to your student’s achievement in all core areas will be released for parents to view. This information will be released every two weeks in all core areas and will include a variety of formative (current learning, anecdotals, comments, ongoing) and summative (outcomes based, connected explicitly to report card stems and indicators, related to projects, larger assignments and tests) assessment information. Information related to exploratories and PE and Health will be released every six weeks. Our recommendation is to take the time every second weekend to review this information with your student- it won’t take more than a few minutes and will help to paint a more complete picture of how a student is progressing in different areas of study. This information can also form the basis for questions and conversations with teachers in the time leading up to formal Parent Teacher Student Conferences in late November. 

 

Safety at School 

Six times a year, we are required to complete Fire Drills with our students. Last Wednesday, we held our first Fire Drill of the year. It is clear that our students understand the importance of these events and we want to thank all of our students for being calm and careful in how they exit and return to the building. On Tuesday September 27, we will be joined by members of Calgary Police Service to complete a practice lock-down at our school. Please note that we do this in the spirit of safety and emergency preparedness. Students will be well looked after and teachers will take time the day before to review what’s required of students. We endeavor to complete these drills in a calm, caring fashion, and to attend to individual student needs in the moment. 

 

Skateboards and Scooters 

Our students are reminded that we are not equipped to store skateboards and scooters inside of the school, either in the office or classrooms. The options are to either use the locking skateboard and scooter racks outside of the building or leave these items at home. We are not able to provide locks through the office. 

 

Clubs and Athletics 

With the re-launch of both interschool athletics and extra-curricular activities such as clubs and rehearsals, we want to clarify where to go for information related to try-outs, games, club meetings and the like. All information related to these fantastic opportunities will be posted to our school website and updated regularly. Information for students and parents is located at: 

Lunch:  

The Servery is now open and lunches are available for order through Healthy Hunger. We have greatly enjoyed working with our students to set up lunchtime activities and quiet “chill out” spaces for students to enjoy. 

 

Mobile Devices:  

Students continue to participate fully in “Away for the Day.” We really appreciate parents and guardians supporting us in this endeavor.  It's been remarkable to watch students socialize more actively, engage in games, and avoid the pitfalls of technology distraction during class time. Families are reminded that they can always call the main office should they need to contact their child during the school day and there is a phone available in the main office for student use.  

 

Volunteers:   

All volunteers need current forms completed and Police Information Checks, which we are happy to help with in the main office. Please complete the attached Annual Volunteer Registration Form and read the attached information on Police Clearances                           

Annual Volunteer Registration Form.pdf                                                                                      cbe.ab.ca/FormsManuals/ePIC-volunteer-information-takeaway.pdf

Wednesday Principal Update - September 14

Dear DGS Families, 

  

One thing I always enjoy doing is sharing resources and articles that I think may be of interest to parents of adolescents. The BBC has a great recurring column called “Family Tree.” Recently, they published a very timely, useful article about the adolescent brain- have a read- I think you’ll recognize many features of our Cranston and Seton kiddos here!                                                              

bbc.com/future/article/20220823-what-really-goes-on-in-teens-brains 

  

Social Media: 

Parents, thank you so much for being so responsive regarding checking in with your students around how they are engaging with social media. This is always an important conversation to have with our students by and large because of the developmental stage they are at. 

  

Athletics: 

All athletics schedules should now be updated and can be located on the DGS website.

Meet the Teacher: 

We are looking forward to hosting our first school community event tomorrow night- please see the attached flyer for more information. We can’t wait to connect with you.                    

DGSMeettheTeacherNightSept15.pdf   

  

Lunch at DGS: 

As a reminder, we do not accept any Skip the Dishes or Door Dash deliveries for students. We are not equipped to receive these deliveries. We ask that families prepare students with their lunches. We do have emergency food available in the office available for students should it be required. The School Servery is now open for snack purchases and Healthy Hunger Menus will be available for placing orders by September 16, and our first delivery day will be September 26.

Volunteers Needed:  

Mr. Bhandari and Ms. Viola are looking for volunteers to support program prep in the woodshop and the Foods Lab. If you are interested in either of these areas, please reach out to Sanjay Bhandari at sabhandari@cbe.ab.ca.

Online Forms

School Engage digital forms regarding Demographics Verification and Annual Media Authorizations are available for completion. We know the system can be a bit temperamental and it may take a few tries to be able to successfully complete the form. This is the first year for the CBE using the platform- it will all come together!

Paper copies of the Annual Authorization for Athletics Try-outs forms will be provided to families this week. Forms must be returned with parent signatures before students can participate in try-outs and practices.

Fall Interschool Sports Teams

The September Calendar for Fall Sports is posted on the DGS School website and has been attached to this message for your family’s reference. All tryout and practice schedules are made available on our school website for families and student athletes.

Bikes, Scooters, Skateboards

We love seeing students riding their bikes, scooters and skateboards to and from school. Please send your child with a sturdy lock to lock their bike, scooter or skateboard up each day. We have locking outdoor skateboard and scooter racks and these items cannot be stored in lockers, classrooms or the main office. When locking a scooter to the racks with a bike lock, it’s important for the lock to be would around the rack several times and/or through one of the scooter wheels. The same applies to skateboards.  Families also need to provide their child with a helmet suitable to the activity. It’s also a good time to remind families to register your child’s bike at https://bikeindex.org/, which is used by CPS in the recovery of stolen bicycles. Should your child’s bike or other property be stolen from any location, report it online at https://www.calgary.ca/cps/report-a-crime.html.  Please note that the CBE is not responsible for theft or loss of personal property and use of bike and skateboard racks is at individual risk. I was very happy to see that ALL bikes were locked up yesterday!!!

Principal Social Media

If you’re interested in some of the “learning happenings” at our school, follow me on twitter at @csmalette. Tweets are my own, but are very often me capturing “evidence” of student and teacher learning all around our building. I use what I capture when I am talking to our staff, students, and our Director about what we see in our school.

Healthy Hunger Ordering and School Servery

We are in the process of setting up Healthy Hunger for this year. Details will come to you in a separate message. The school servery will re-open on Monday Sept 12. Students are able to purchase small “healthier option” snack items and drinks. We wouldn’t recommend trying to have it be your student’s whole lunch. Hot water for soups, etc will be available at the servery. We do not have microwaves for student use and foods sent need to be consumable in the form you send them.

Busses

Students who take the yellow school bus are encouraged to be at the bus zone as soon as school dismisses for the day. The bus zone is located along Cranston Road. Students are expected to make their way independently to the bus. Adults are in the bus zone to support students in getting on the correct bus.

First Principal Update of 2022-2023 0n August 26

Dear New and Returning DGS Families:

Welcome to our school! For most of you, welcome back! We are very excited for the 2022-2023 school year.

In preparation for the upcoming school year, we want to share some basic information. While most of this is the same as the message sent in mid-August, updated information is at the beginning of the message related to homeroom assignments, first days of school, supplies, and exploratory course selection.

Homeroom Assignments

On Monday August 29 at 4:00pm, you will receive a school messenger message from your child’s new key teacher. This email will introduce you to their teacher(s) and help your student to understand where their homeroom is. Please note that homeroom teachers are not available to meet with families August 29-31, as we are engaged in important staff learning to support everyone’s success this school year. Due to a high number of new registrations, it may take up to 24 hours for the main office to respond to inquiries- we anticipate things will stabilize the week of September 6. Teachers are available for conversations and meetings outside of instructional time as of September 1, 2022.

First Days of School

Our main office re-opens for communication and new registration on Thursday August 25.

Any student whose exploratory course selections are not finalized will be given the opportunity to select classes during the first week of school. Exploratories do not start until Monday September 15, 2022. We are unable to process any changes to Exploratory Courses (CTF and Fine Arts) until all students are registered. Changes are considered in exceptional circumstances only.

Grade 6 students do not need to register for exploratory courses, as they will experience a pre-selected set of Exploratories including Art, Music, Construction, Foods, an Arts Integrated Learning block and Communication Technologies.

September 1 and 2 for Grade 6

Their first day of classes is Thursday September 1. This will be a regular Thursday schedule of 8:30am to 2:55pm. They will be the only students in the building that day. This will be a day of getting used to their surroundings, getting to know their teacher and getting to know one another. Students are asked to gather in the backyard area of the school for 8:30am. Teachers will meet students in this area and take them to their homerooms. Parents will say goodbye to students here! There is regular school bus transportation on this day.

There is NO SCHOOL for Grade 6 students on Friday September 2. 

September 1 and 2 for Grade 7 to 9

Their first day of classes is Friday September 2. This will be a regular Friday schedule of 8:30am to 11:55am. Students are asked to gather in the backyard area of the school for 8:30am. Teachers will meet students in this area and take them to their homerooms. There is regular school bus transportation on this day.

There is NO SCHOOL for Grade 7 to 9 students on Thursday September 1. 

The first full day with all students attending is Tuesday September 6, 2022.

School Hours

Our school hours are 8:30-2:55 M-R and 8:30-11:55 on Fridays.

Supplies

In Grade 6, materials needed for learning are provided for students. We do not require indoor shoes. 

In Grades 7-9, homeroom teachers will provide a supply list in the first days of school. Basic learning tools such as a binder, dividers, paper, a calculator and pens and pencils will be more than sufficient for the first weeks. 

Students are welcome to use their own Chromebook, laptop or tablet for learning purposes during the day at school. Classroom doors are locked whenever they are not in use. 

In terms of personal items, all students need their own backpack, lunch, water bottle and personal care items such as hair ties, sunscreen, bug spray and personal hygiene products.

Students should be prepared to go outside each day unless the temperatures are colder than -20c. On those days, students are still allowed to do so- if that's what they choose.

Meet the Teacher Night

Meet the Teacher Night will be held on September 15 in the backyard area of the school (weather permitting). We are in the midst of planning some different activities for students and their families for this event- stay tuned for more information!

Soft Entry and Entry Doors

Our school supports a soft entry- students are welcome at school from 8:00 onward- this gives students time to organize themselves, go to their lockers, visit with peers and settle themselves into their homerooms before the start of the day. All students are supervised during this time. Students are not permitted in the building before 8:00am. We keep an even flow of students entering the building before school starts by using both sets of doors along the front of the building. 

Grade 6 and Grade 7 students enter the doors closest to the flagpole. 

Grade 8 and Grade 9 students enter the doors closest to the bike racks. 

Students arriving late will enter the main doors (closest to the flagpole) by buzzing the office using intercom on the LEFT side of the doors. 

Lunchtime on Our Campus

Our campus is a CLOSED campus. The student lunch break is 35 minutes long and students are supervised and offered a variety of activities and spaces in the building during this time. This means that no DGS students leave campus at lunch time, unless they walk home for lunch every day. Students need to have their lunch with them each day. We do NOT allow students to be signed out to walk to Sobey’s, etc. If a student has forgotten lunch, we do have emergency supplies in the main office. If you are picking your student up for lunch, please let us know when you arrive at the school, and we will sign them out when we see your vehicle. The very few students who do walk home sign themselves out in the main office daily and back in at the end of lunch. This is pre-arranged through the office starting from the first day of school. Students can purchase snack items from the servery M-R at lunch time. Healthy Hunger ordering is available as well. There are no microwaves for student use. Hot water is available at the servery. 

Mobile Devices

Our school is an “Away for the Day” school. This means that if your child brings a mobile device to school, it is placed in the student locker before 8:30am and does not come back out again until 2:55pm. This includes lunchtime. If you need to contact your child at school, please call 403 817 3556. 

Lockers

Students will have an individual locker for their exclusive use. Items are placed in the locker before 8:30 each day. Students should not need to go back to their locker until lunch, and again after school. Learning materials are kept in the classroom. The school provides all locks for lockers.

PE and Wellness

Students get 45 minutes of PE and Wellness daily. Students do not change for PE and Wellness. Physical education and wellness promotes the development of the whole individual and aims to nurture students in their pursuit of a healthy and active life.

Communication from the School

I send home a weekly update for families every Wednesday. This update includes messages about schoolwide initiatives, important reminders and an updated list of dates. Your child’s teacher will use SchoolMessenger, email and Google classroom to communicate with you. Updated assessment information about student learning can be found in PowerSchool. We do encourage the student’s homeroom teacher to be your first point of contact for day-to-day questions, concerns and information sharing. Please allow teachers 24 hours to respond to messages. 

Attendance

If your child is going to be away from school, please email drgeorgestanley@cbe.ab.ca  and your child’s homeroom teacher so we can update attendance daily. You can also call the school’s attendance line at 403 817 3556. The PowerSchool App will show you daily attendance in “real time”- we just ask for your patience each day while we update Absence and Late information. SchoolMessenger contacts ALL legal guardians daily by email and phone around 10:00am and 2:00pm if a student is late or absent. 

Signing Your Child Out for Appointments, etc.

If your young person needs to leave school during the day, we ask that this information is communicated to your child’s homeroom teacher and the main office. It’s best to email both drgeorgestanley@cbe.ab.ca and your child’s homeroom teacher. You can also call the main office at 403 817 3556. Students are NOT permitted to sign out without communication from the legal guardian.

Bikes, Skateboards and Scooters

We strongly encourage all students to walk, bike, skateboard or scooter their way to school. Bikes, skateboards and scooters MUST be stored in our outside racks (NOT in student lockers)- we do not have the room to store these in lockers, classrooms or main office. All items should be secured with a lock to the racks. Our skateboard and scooter racks work best with a padlock OR a bike lock wound through enough times to take out all of the slack. DGS is NOT responsible for lost or stolen bikes, scooters or skateboards. We recommend that all bikes be registered with Bike Index. Calgary Police Service partners with Bike Index to return lost and stolen bikes. 

https://www.calgary.ca/cps/public-services/bike-index.html 

Interschool Athletics

Grade 6 students are welcome to try out for all DGS Sports Teams. Cross Country and Wrestling are no-cut teams. We do run a “Junior 67’s” program for students for some of our seasons of play as well. All interschool athletics tryouts will be announced via the school’s website. 

Dropping Off and Picking Up

We ask for careful driving habits around the school. Please ensure students use marked crosswalks when they exit your vehicle. The parent drop off zone is along Cranston Drive. Please do NOT stop in the bus zone along Cranston Road. 

Traffic Safety

Students and drivers are reminded of safety related to the two 4 way stops around our building. We do not have School Patrols for a variety of reasons and we ask that everyone share the responsibility for traffic safety.   

School Council and Parent Fundraising Society:

These meetings take place on the last Tuesday of every month, in the evening. Meetings will be a hybrid of face-to-face and online meetings. September and October will be face-to-face, November through March will be online and April, May and June will be face-to-face. Information is sent out via SchoolMessenger in advance of all meetings. Our School Council’s voice is an important stakeholder in student life at DGS.

We know this is a lot of information- I just wanted you to have the basics all in one place as we get ready for the upcoming school year!​

Final Principal Update of 2021-22 on June 27

Dear DGS Families, 


I want to leave you with one of my favourite poems- Max Ehrmann’s “Desiderata.” 

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons… Speak your truth quietly and clearly.  If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with [all versions] of God, whatever you conceive Him [or Her or Them] to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.” 

For me, it’s a poem that has provided perspective at all stages of my life- I understood it differently at 14 than I did at 30 and now, at (ahem) nearly 50. I’ve taught it a number of times in Grade 9 ELA and even though it’s almost 100 years old, I think it’s as relevant now as it was when it was published in 1948 after Ehrmann’s death. 

From all of us at DGS, we are wishing you and your family a summer of rest (when you need it), adventure (when you crave it) and joy (wherever you find it).

Wednesday Principal Update - June 22

Dear DGS Families, 

  

This week’s message is all about Interschool Athletics. Let’s take a trip in the way-back machine to the Fall of 2021…. 

  

We kick started the 2021-2022 school year with our cross-country and soccer seasons. 

The cross-country team had 20 participants who had a great showing in two divisional meets. 

The girls soccer team had a successful season and a lot of fun with Mr. Bews and Ms. Moore as their as their coaches. Little did we know that this was the last team Mr. Bews would get to coach! 

The boys soccer team had a season to remember earning the title of UNDEFEATED DIVISION CHAMPIONS! We look forward to this being displayed proudly on our 21/22 athletics banner. 

All four junior and senior volleyball teams had an awesome season with the senior girls winning their division title and adding to our 21/22 athletics banner. Volleyball is definitely a growing sport at Dr. George and it’s exciting to see that so many of our students love the game. 

The next wave of Covid interrupted the basketball and wrestling seasons, but we are looking forward to late Fall and early Winter 2022 when we can take to the mats and the courts once again. 

We had 4 talented badminton teams compete in a meet and all 4 teams placed extremely well. ­­Our grade 8’s & 9’s both finished 4th in their division. The grade 6’s ended up 2nd and our grade 7 team added to our 21/22 banner with a first-place finish. 

Our track and field meet was a great success. We had so many highlights from the day with many athletes and relay teams placing first in their events. We ended up in second place due to some events not being filled. We would love to bring a full team for the 2022/2023 Track meet. 

I want to thank all of our student athletes, teacher and community coaches and our super supportive parent community who have made all of this possible. It takes commitment and dedication to attend practices and games to represent our school in the CMLSAA this season. We are extremely proud of our Interschool Athletics Program and we are looking forward to an active, exciting 2022-2023 school year!

Wednesday Principal Update - June 15

Dear DGS Families: 

  

This past week has seen our students marking a milestone with their Grade 9 Farewell, making some memories with the Grade 7’s at Outdoor School and our Grade 6’s writing the first of their Provincial Achievement Tests. We are making the most of our wet June days together! 


Recently, Mr. Rushton and I completed a review of the student survey feedback gathered through the OurSchool Survey in late May. Based on this feedback, we learned that the vast majority of our students feel safe and well-cared for by our teachers and administration. We are committed to supporting those students who, for a variety of reasons, may not feel safe at school. Students also told us they appreciated having more exploratory courses to choose from this year. Based on student feedback, we will be returning to students using lockers at the start of the 2022-2023 school year. We will continue our intentional work with students about respecting one another, as this continues to be an area students feel can be better developed. Part of this work will be taking up the intentional conversations with students about understanding racism and/or discriminatory language and the use of words that are slurs. Through identifying it, defining it, talking about the impact our words and actions have on one another, we will continue to make DGS the best school it can be. We appreciate our students identifying the things that matter to them.

Wednesday Principal Update - June 1

Dear DGS Families, 


We did it! It’s June! The lilacs are in bloom, our bike racks are full, and the next month is filled with athletic events, fine arts events, learning, laughter, welcoming new faces and saying farewell to some very familiar ones. 

Exploratory Course Selections for 2022-2023 

By the end of this week, students currently in Grades 6-8 will receive a link to be able to select their exploratory courses for next year in PowerSchool. This survey will come with a detailed description of course offerings. Students will be asked to select at least 5 courses they would like to be able to take next year (Band counts as two courses) and they will be enrolled into 4 of those choices. This is our first year using PowerScheduler, and we are excited to be able to have student data in real time around course selections. Families with students entering Grade 6 do not need to complete Exploratory Course Registration, as students will experience a preset group of exploratories in order to prepare them for great things to come. 

School Wide Musical: Raise Your Voice, Jr. 

Thursday June 2 marks the return of our Musical. Students will perform for our incoming Grade 6 students in the afternoon at their dress rehearsal and the full show runs at 7:00pm tomorrow night. Tickets are $5 for adults and $2 for students at the door. Everyone is welcome to attend. There are no ticket presales this year. Doors open at 6:30pm - the concession stand will operate from 6:30-7:00pm (CASH ONLY). Come on out and support the arts! 

Grade 9 Farewell - UPDATE 

Our Grade 9 Farewell Ceremony will take place at 10:00am in the main gym on Friday June 10, 2022. Parents and family members are welcome into the building at 9:30am. This event is intended for Grade 9 students and their family members. School will start at 8:15am as usual. If a Grade 9 student is going to arrive late this day, they are asked to sign in through the office no later than 9:15am so teachers can organize their students. If parents wish to have younger siblings who attend DGS included in the audience, we ask that you let the younger siblings homeroom teacher know and have them meet you in the foyer when you arrive at the school. We anticipate the formal program will be finished by 11:15am. A short, outdoor reception for Grade 9 students and their families will take place following the ceremony. This will be an informal reception, with the focus being on photo opportunities, and gathering over light refreshments and music in the backyard area. We want to thank our Parent Fundraising Society for their generous support of our décor and refreshments for this event - it is very, very appreciated. Tickets are NOT required to attend the Ceremony and Reception. More details concerning the field trip to Calaway Park will be sent closer to the date. 

Track Meet Information 

Please check the website for the most up-to-date announcements for Track and Field - with over 100 athletes participating in next Monday’s meet, we want to thank all of our coaches for managing the fun and games! Go 67s!!!!

Outdoor Gaga Ball Pit Coming to DGS 

We are excited to announce that an outdoor Gaga Ball Pit will be installed in our Backyard area over the summer. This has been a labour of love for our Parent Fundraising Society and School Leadership since DGS opened and we are excited to see it come to fruition. 

Transportation Registration 

Eligible families should register their child for yellow school bus transportation services using their MyCBE account. Families must register by Thursday, June 8 for students to be added to routes for the start of the next school year. For families living in Riverstone and Seton, bus registration supports our transportation department with planning stop locations in those areas. Late registrations can take up to six weeks to process and we are unable to provide transportation during this time. Families can cancel their registration by September 30, 2022, without penalty. 

Big Chief Fundraiser 

Dr. George Stanley School is excited to partner with Big Chief Meat Snacks for our next fundraiser! Big Chief is a local Calgary company that has been making meat snacks for over 50 years. The products are made with 100% Canadian beef, come in six flavours, are shelf stable, and gluten free. We will earn 30-40% of the total sales which will help Parent Council assist the school by paying for items like buses for field trips, extra gym equipment, and so much more. Orders will be accepted online beginning Monday May 16 through Monday June 6; and will be ready by June 17.

Wednesday Principal Update - May 11

​​​Dear DGS Families,

As of today, our Grade 6 and 9 students have completed Part A of their English Language Arts exams. We view this as just one more opportunity to gather information about student learning. Our students have put great effort and thought into their writing and we appreciate everyone’s commitment to our successful return to this task.

Taking it on the Road

Last Friday and on May 28, Ms. Thomas will be taking our Grade 9 Band students on the road for musical performances at Sibylla Kiddle School and Cranston School. Our instrumental music program has loved being able to get back to performing - music really is one of those gifts that washes away the dust of everyday life.

Potential Transportation Delays and Interruptions for Bus Routes

We are aware of ongoing issues with transportation service that have impacted our school this week. We are working closely with CBE Transportation and Southland to address these concerns.

Transportation service providers are currently facing increased staffing pressures. While the majority of routes have assigned drivers, service providers are challenged to provide coverage when there is a driver absence, a mechanical issue, or a delay at a previous school. We have been fortunate insofar as these are the first days of long delays we have experienced this school year. We know that does not lessen the inconvenience of transportation delays.

It's important to note that there may be service disruption to either of our bus routes for Dr. George Stanley School between now and June 30. When this occurs, the route will likely be covered by spare drivers and there may be significant delays to scheduled pick-up or drop-off times. Please have a backup plan in case school bus transportation is unavailable.

Families are responsible for checking for delays, as the school may not always be able to send a School Messenger message. Delays are posted on www.myschoolbusmonitor.ca and through Southland's MyBusStop App each shift as early as possible. We highly recommend signing up for push email notifications on www.myschoolbusmonitor.ca or refer to the website and app.
