First Day: Students entering grades 1 through 8 start on Tuesday September 2, 2014. Supervision will start at 8:45 a.m. with entry at 9:00 a.m. Students entering Junior and Senior Kindergarten will start on Monday September 8. Junior Kindergarten students have classroom visits scheduled on Thursday and Friday, September 4 and 5. If you have not received an appointment time, or have forgotten, please call the school.
Designated Lunch: Our designated lunch is the first Nutrition Break, from 10:40 am to 11:20 am. Students may depart the building with parental/guardian permission after signing out at the office, or remain at school to eat. ALL students will remain at school for the second Nutrition Break, from 1:00 pm to 1:40 pm. This is to ensure the safety of all students as attendance is taken upon arrival in the morning and after the first Nutrition Break. Please attend to this change in routine from previous years.
Safe Arrival: If your student is late / absent, please inform the school @ 905-438-9648
Our school is NUT AWARE! Please refrain from sending your child to school with any nut products. Thank-you!
No Dog Policy : Please be reminded that Board policy states dogs are not allowed on school property. We are going to ask that all dog owners respect this policy as we have students who have severe allergies or are terrified of dogs, no matter the size. Thank you for your co-operation.
School Yard Supervision: The school yard is supervised each day beginning at 8:45 and ending at 3:30. For safety reasons, students are not to be dropped off before 8:45 and are to be picked up by 3:30 at the latest. Thank you for making sure your children are safe.
Kiss & Ride: Please be aware that the area at the front of the school adjacent to the parking lot is designated for Kiss and Ride. We ask that students exit the vehicule on the right side in order to avoid possible dangers from oncoming cars. In addition, we request that you honour the Kiss and Ride concept, entering and exiting this area in a timely fashion. If for any reason you need to come into the school, we ask that you park your vehicle in the lot and then make your way into the school. This will eliminate any congestion as this is a very busy area before and after school. We thank you for your cooperation and support in keeping our students safe.
Picking Up Your Student(s): As a reminder to all parents that you must sign in at the office when visiting our school. Also to reduce congestion during arrival and dismissal times, parents are asked to wait for students outside. Thank you for respecting these requests.
Fragrances & Scents:In the interests of the well being of our school community, we are requesting that individuals refrain from using strongly scented products. Exposure to fragrances, cologne and scented hand or body lotions can cause allergic reactions, asthmatic symptoms and migraines, as well as general discomfort for certain individuals. In some cases, reactions can occur to even relatively mild scents, so we are asking for everyone to be aware and accommodate those that suffer from these sensitivities.
Thank you for your cooperation and we appreciate your support of our efforts to provide a healthy environment for our school.
Hot Lunch Forms: In the interest of efficiency and some confusion around orders, we cannot accept any late hot lunch forms. If they are late, they will be returned to you.
Homework Help offers live, one-on-one tutoring Sundays to Thursdays from 5:30 to 9:00 p.m., as well as lessons, tips and resources that are available at any time.
