Hello SJ/AJA families,I hope that all of you were able to stay warm and cozy on the weekend. With the new change in weather, we would like to remind everyone to dress for the colder temperatures. Toques, mitts and boots are all necessary. We will continue to take students outdoors when possible so please ensure that you have proper outdoor clothing.We would like to highlight our first two Celebrations of Learning. Ms. Burke and Mr. Siddle’s classes shared important learning with us about World Mental Health Day on October 10 and Ms. McCartney and Ms. Fung’s classes shared their presentation about International Day of the Girl. Both of these virtual celebrations of learning emphasized our sense of belonging here at Stanley Jones. Each class created a video and some lessons to be shared with all of the classes k-9. This is a wonderful way for all of us to ‘see’ into each other’s classrooms and learn about important events related to human rights. Mask wearing continues to come up as a topic of discussion! Some parents may wonder, why are students wearing masks all day? Students are free to remove masks when outside or during strenuous physical activity, as long as we can maintain physical distancing. Staff encourage the students to physically distance if they want to remove their mask. Students do choose to continue to wear their masks outdoors most of the time so that they can be closer together. In our classrooms, students sit in rows, facing forward, and sometimes they are able to remove their masks. We do require students to wear their masks when they are in the hallways. With the increased number of cases it is important that we continue to be safe and cautious. With respect to sanitization, students are able to use hand sanitizer and/or wash their hands in the sink. Not all of our classrooms have sinks in them so it is important that students use the sanitizer that is provided at school. Depending on the situation, students sanitize or wash their hands regularly: activity in the classroom, travel within the school, if they are eating, if they have used the washroom as examples. Some students are affected more than others by these safety measures and we do our best to be sensitive to individual needs.Staff are beginning our work on our School Development Plan and we will be sharing this with families by the end of November. Sincerely,
Today’s Board of Trustees public meeting starts at noon at the Ed Centre. We invite you to stream the meeting online https://t.co/nvCl1fNgoJ #yycbe https://t.co/oq5v5MuHzE
