Principal's Message

Sunday Principal Message - Aug 15, 2021

Welcome Back to School Sunday Message – Aug 15, 2021 
Greetings Parents  
Welcome back to school.  I am certain that you are wondering about school re-entry guidelines and implications for health and safety regarding covid 19.  At present, we have received direction from our school division that all students and staff will be asked to wear masks as one of the preventative health measures.  Please send your child with a mask.  As you know the Province has indicated that no mask mandate is being imposed by the province, but that school jurisdictions can implement enhanced safety measures as they see appropriate.   I will be sure to update you on changes to re-entry protocols as they become available.   
Several protocols will remain in place for the time being including enhanced cleaning, improved ventilation, hand washing, staggered beginning and endings of the day, staggered lunches and recesses, no visitors within the school, and cohorting of children.    If children are presenting with illness they will be asked to be picked up from school. There are also a number of changes to our covid protocols including some field trip possibilities, regular use of the library and home reading initiatives,  cohorting of students in the music room, and being able to offer extracurricular clubs.  We will also begin on Wednesday, Aug 18 with morning supervision from 745-800 each morning.   
Our breakfast program will continue operating in the same manner as during 2020-21.  Breakfast will be delivered to each classroom after school starts at 8am.  There will be no before school breakfast program.  Please send your child to school with a bag lunch – there is limited lunch (not for every child) will be offered to children who do not come to school with their own lunch. 
Please visit  for information about staggered entry for the first week of school.  
 Staggered entry applies to all regular program classes.   
Regular program 
Tuesday Aug 17 – family name A-K will attend school from 800-1031; family names L-Z will attend school from 1214-245 
Wednesday Aug 18 – family name A-K will attend school from 800-245; family name L-Z will not attend school this day 
Thursday Aug 19 – family name A-K will not attend school; Family name L-Z will attend school from 800-245pm 
Friday Aug 20 – all students will attend school 800-1130 
EES program 
Tuesday Aug 17, Wednesday Aug 18, Thursday Aug 19  - all EES students will attend school from 800-245 
Friday Aug 20 – all EES students will attend school from 800-1130 
We expect that health and safety protocols will evolve over the year.  The information shared here is the most current information.  Any changes to health and safety protocols will be shared as soon as they become available. 
Please expect an email from your child’s teacher on Monday Aug 16 explaining what the first day and first week will look like.   
Looking forward to another fantastic year of learning at West Dover School. 
Roy Strum
