Parking Lot Safety

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We need your support in modelling safe and expected use of the school parking lot for entry and exit times of the day.  The lot has signage in place prohibiting pickup and drop off of students for safety during the school day.  Parents and admin have noted an increase use of this area by parents either parking, waiting or travelling threw the lot at entry and exit times.  There have been several close calls with pedestrians walking between or in front of buses at dismissal.  Please walk your student through the field area or use the city sidewalk at entry and exit times to reduce the potential risk of vehicle/pedestrian accidents.

Regards,

Mr. Snow

Parents will be contacted if a student exhibits symptoms for pickup from the school and will wait in the office infirmary area until a parent/guardian or approved contact arrives to sign out the student for the day.

Online Readiness:

Please have your student practice logging into the google classroom in preparation for a sudden shift to   online learning if required.

Email the classroom teacher if you require password clarification or access to your students' online classroom.

Students who are required to self isolate or quarantine for short periods of time may access the online classroom for a week at a glance activities focused on literacy and numeracy.  Completed work will not be required for submission or assessment in these short term scenarios.

Respectfully,

Christopher Snow

Class Changes

Dear Parents/Guardians,

SVS student enrollment in our Kindergarten program has been higher than initial numbers projected in June last spring.  Our initial organisation for learning planned on three Kindergarten classrooms but current enrollment will require an addition of a fourth classroom in the am timeslot (3 am kindergarten classes and 1 pm class). To facilitate the addition of a fourth Kindergarten class we will need to shift instructional spaces and redeploy staff.

As of Monday, September 27, 2021:

 Ms. Bond/Eliopoulos Rm. 25 will be joining Ms. Cook in Rm. 10.  This room has housed double classrooms for the past five years from grade six to grade one. Entry and dismissal doors will remain the same to maintain routines and safety for the grade one students. 

Ms. Webb will be redeployed as the new Kindergarten classroom teacher in Rm. 25 during the morning time slot. She will be joining the Kindergarten team for the virtual parent conferences on Thursday September 23 and on Friday September 24, 2021.

Ms. Wiskar has been hired to be the classroom teacher in grade 2 Rm. 12 for the reminder of the 2021/2022 school year. Ms. Wiskar will be joining the grade 2 team for the virtual parent conferences on Thursday Sept 23 and Friday September 24, 2021.

Ms. Turvey/Sinden will continue to work as a double classroom on the DLC floor space with breakout space available still in the loft area using a school wide sign out process.

These changes are going to make a positive impact on student learning success and well-being.
