Principal's Message

October 18, 2020


October 18, 2020
 
Dear students and parents/guardians, 
 
Happy Sunday!
 
This week, the forecast is calling for cooler weather, even over the lunch break.  The first 12 minutes of lunch will be followed as usual – classroom teacher will supervise the class in the first 12 minutes while students eat lunch.
 
The second half of lunch, approximately 20 min.  Students can choose to go outside.  They will be expected to stay outside for the 20 minutes and need to be dressed for the weather.  Students who choose not to go outside, they will have the following choices:
 
Monday and Wednesday: 
Gr 7:  Cafeteria – small group interaction
Gr 8/9:  Gym/Stage (max 60 students) playing volleyball or 9 square OR sign up for the library (60 spots)  
 
Tuesday and Thursday: 
Gr 7:  Gym – playing volleyball (max 48 students)
Gr 8:  Stage (max 15 students) 9 square 
Gr 8 / 9:  Cafeteria – small group interaction OR sign up for the library (60 spots)
 
Gentle Reminders:
 
WHS Textbook and Library Books:  Please take a look around your house and through all the nooks and crannies for any books that may belong to Wilma Hansen School – whether they be old text books or library books.  We are trying to track down a significant number of missing items that have a costly impact on the school.  If you find one of our books, please bring it back.
 
Masks:  Wearing a mask at school is mandatory for all.  Students have been provided with reusable masks and are expected to be wearing a mask inside the school.  They are to wear masks when outdoors and when they cannot guarantee a greater that 2m physical distance.  
 
School am and pm entry and exit doors: 
Gr 5, 6 and 7 – WEST entrance; 
Grade 8 NORTH entrance; 
Grade 9 MAIN entrance; 
Rm 1 and 20 students via SOUTH entrance.
 
The school has one-way travel in stairwells.  In the hallways during 2-way travel, students are to stay right, walk in single file and maintain some distance from the person just in front of them.
 
Lunch:  Students will either stay at school for lunch or go home for lunch.  ALL students staying at school for lunch will need to pack a lunch at this time.  No cafeteria service available right now.  Students staying at school will stay on the school grounds for the entire lunch.  Students need take home whatever they bring with them.  This includes uneaten food and all packaging.  There is no access for off site lunch services for any students until further notice.  Reminder for all to bring a packed lunch and snacks, water bottle, wear a mask and dress for the weather.
 
Students going home for lunch will sign out at the main officeand sign back in on their return.
 
Lunch for Gr 5/6 students:  This group will have an updated plan for lunch to allow for appropriate supervision, physical distancing and opportunities for indoor and outdoor activities.
 
Dress for the weather:  We are scheduling many opportunities for students to be outside for PE classes, OEE classes and for short fresh air breaks in their other classes.  Please dress for the weather as students move as class cohorts. 
 
After School:  Students are to board school buses or make their way directly home.
 
Kat Siska, Principal​
