              As we prepare for our first day with students on Wednesday, September 1 the following information will help you and your child for day 1:
Your child's teacher will contact you (email) to welcome your child and introduce themselves prior to Tuesday
For the first day only, all students will meet their teacher on the field(s). There will be a sign and the teacher will be waiting in a designated spot.
Students should arrive with inside shoes, lunch (if they are staying) and a water bottle
Class specific details will be shared by your teacher at a later time
**Kindergarten will begin this week with the staggered entry schedule provided last June.
If your child is late (after 8:58), please use the front doors and have your child head to the office for a late slip. If your child will be absent please call the office 403-777-8360 and leave a message with child's name and reason for absence.
