Principal's Message

Welcome to 2021-22!

Dear Parents and Guardians of Twelve Mile Coulee School,
Welcome back to all of our new and old Twelve Mile Coulee School families.  I want to welcome you to the first week of the 2021–22 school year.  Teachers and staff have been at the school this past week getting ready for the first day of school on Wednesday, September 1, 2021.  We are so excited to welcome our students back and to welcome those new to TMC with the anticipation of an amazing school year ahead! I saw a meme that I thought was exceptionally appropriate with the first day of school tomorrow…
A warm heart,
Opens doors,
To new faces,
To New Places
The start of a new
Regarding COVID procedures, at this point the CBE is asking all students and staff to wear masks while at school, and this will look exactly the same as last year.  When outside, students will not need to wear masks unless they are not socially distancing or if they just decide they want to.  Students in grade 5 and 6 will be cohorted for the day including their PE and lunch time. Grade 7 – 9 students will be in their instructional groups for their core academic and PE classes, they will have mixed grade level cohorts for their Options/CFT/Band classes.  We will have hand sanitizing stations set up in the classrooms and throughout the school and will be once again encouraging all students and staff to be using these and washing their hands frequently. If a student is not feeling well we will be calling parents and they will need to go home. One aspect that we learned this past year was that when students and staff are not feeling well, staying at home is extremely important to help prevent the spread and does keep our school community healthier and safer.
Students, staff and families can expect the following health measures to be in place when classes resume in all schools on September 1, 2021:
Masks – All TMC Staff and students will continue wearing masks for the start of the 2021-22 school year in our schools and workplaces.
Daily Checklist – Students and staff will still be expected to use the daily checklist to identify if they should attend or stay home
Stay Home When Sick – students and staff who present with COVID-19 symptoms must stay at home until symptoms resolve
Proper hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette
Enhanced cleaning and disinfection of high traffic/touch areas
Enhanced ventilation in schools
Classroom cohorts in Grade 5 and Grade 6
No unscheduled visitors, volunteers or external partners will be permitted in schools at the start of the school year
Public use or rentals of school facilities outside of school hours will be limited until January 2022
Some health restrictions will be lifted, including:
At the direction of the Chief Medical Officer of Health, schools will no longer inform close contacts of positive cases, but additional health measures may be implemented as the COVID-19 situation evolves, or if outbreaks occur
Band and sports activities can proceed
Limited off-site activities will be allowed
Schools can be occupied for evening and weekend school activities
At TMC School, we have made the decisions that:
Lockers will not be used at this time. We still have good weather and I would like to be able to make sure we are taking all possible precautions for student health and safety.
Students will not be expected to change for PE. Change Rooms may be used if a student wants to, and for students playing on teams the Change Rooms will be available.
For Lunchtime, our grade 5s and 6s are expected to stay on our school grounds as part of Lunch Supervision expectations, unless they are going home every day for lunch. Our grade 7 through 9 students have more freedom and may leave campus if they choose to.  There is dedicated supervision for our grade 5 and 6 students at lunch time.  All students in all grades will be expected to go outside unless weather prohibits it.
Please make sure students are wearing appropriate clothing for going outside for Nutrition Break and Lunch Break. We will eat lunch inside, and unless it is really cold, we will still head outside if it is warmer that -20°C.
There will be 3 Lunch Time scenarios:
A lovely day – Students will eat lunch outside (Lunch A) and stay outside for play and non-mask time (Lunch B).
A Chilly Day (warmer than -20°C) – Students will eat lunch inside their classroom (Lunch A) and them proceed outside for play and non-mask time (Lunch B).
A Cold day (colder than -20°C with the wind chill factor) – students will eat lunch inside their classroom and stay inside and may socialize, play games, do artwork, etc. within their cohort.
With our Calgary Weather, please be prepared and dressed appropriately as we will still head outside if it is warmer that -20°C (including wild chill.) Please know that we will support safety first, but do expect that students are appropriately dressed for changing weather.
Our School Doors will open at 8:15 am for a soft entry, when students may enter the school, go to their classroom and get ready for the day. A reminder that the doors to enter the school do not open for students for our “Soft Entry" until 8:15 am. Please do not send or drop off students before 8:15 am on the nasty cold days. Students may also choose to stay outside until 8:25 am when a bell will ring, and then instruction will begin at 8:30 am.
I always try to be as available as possible, but please know that your child's homeroom teacher will be the point of contact for you and the school.  If you have any questions, please start with them as they can then direct you accordingly. 
There is so much to share at the start of a school year and we do not want to overwhelm you with everything at once, and there is already a ton of information here!  We hope that as you send your child off to TMC on Wednesday, that you will do so with the confidence and trust in us that we are here to help your child stay safe, stay healthy, and have an amazing learning year at school. We have assembled a staff that I have trust and faith in and know they will always act in the best interests of your child at all times.  I look forward to seeing our students back and am excited to begin my 27th year as an educator alongside them. Wow… Some of us are getting old…
Derek (Mr. R) and Mel (Ms. Bond)

RT @EricHarvieSchl: It was a full day of Indigenous professional learning - inspired by the words of Tomas Jirousek and our CBE Elders, we continued our journey towards understanding & reconciliation in 12 Mile Coulee with Sa’akokoto. A day of connection & reflection with Na’a🌎 #EHSOurstory

RT @EricHarvieSchl: Elder Sa’akokoto will visit the Coulee with @EricHarvieSchl learners later this week. Today we prepared with teachings from Na’a & human connections to the land. “Together in circle we are reconciliation.” We were ‘grounded, connected, present, centered, grateful’ for his wisdom.

RT @ateachersaurus: @Indigenous_cbe thank you for today’s PD. My take away from Tomas Jirousek was moving from “meet students where they are at,” to “meet students where they are, and for WHO they are.” My give away is too double down on relationships, this work isn’t just a check box. @TMCCBE
