We hope everyone has had a wonderful and safe summer. September is just about upon us, and our return to school is now around the corner!
The school year begins on Tuesday September 6, 2016. Students are asked to congregate at the rear of the school where they will be met by the staff. Parents and guardians will be invited to join the students on the tarmac to see who their child(ren)’s teacher is/are. On the first day, students in JK attend for the last 100 minutes only, beginning at 1:35 p.m and ending at 3:15 p.m. (JK parents are invited to attend a short presentation in the school library after dropping their children off.) Please be advised that school starts at 8:55 a.m. sharp, our lunch hour will be 12:35 p.m. – 1:35 p.m. and the scheduled end time is 3:15 p.m. for all grades. For the first day please ensure that your child either brings a lunch or has written permission to go home.
On September 6, 2016 if it is raining – only students will be brought into the gym (primary, junior) and library (intermediate) to be put into classes. Please be reminded that due to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, class lists cannot be posted. Please also note that the organization on the first day of school is a tentative organization and as enrollment changes we may have to reorganize our current classes at the end of September.
As always, we encourage our parents and guardians and their child(ren) to walk to school or park on one of the adjacent streets and walk to school. Our parking lot is very busy at entry and dismissal times. Please be reminded not to park in the Kiss and Ride!
We look forward to seeing you on September 6, 2016. Welcome back!
