June 15th Update

Date: June 15, 2021


As you are aware, the final day of classes for all students is Monday, June 21st. There will not be any more synchronous or asynchronous instruction after this date.


On Wednesday, June 23rd and Thursday, June 24th, students will be invited to come to the school to retrieve their belongings and have an opportunity to say goodbye to staff. Entry to the school will be through the front doors by the main office. Students will then proceed to their classrooms, pick up their belongings and leave through the doors to the school yard where parents will meet them. Due to COVID restrictions, parents/guardians are not allowed into the school.


COVID restrictions will be in place for students. Please ensure that you have done the Self Screening tool for each child prior to arriving at school. Students must wear masks and will be expected to use hand sanitizer on entering and exiting the school. Within each classroom, students will need to maintain physical distancing of 2 meters at all times.


We ask that you don’t linger in the school yard after students have returned to their families. As you are aware, even outdoor groups are currently limited to 10 individuals. The play structure will be closed.


Staff will be available throughout the building to assist students and ensure that they are able to move through the process quickly.


Chromebooks

Please do see the information that went home today about returning borrowed Chromebooks (both in school students and virtual).

A link is provided here as well: Chromebook return information.


Textbooks, Library books

If your child has borrowed any textbooks or library books, we ask that they also be returned at this time. We will have a central location for library book return near the Learning Commons where students can drop their books. Textbooks should be returned to their classrooms.


Medications

All medications currently housed at the school will be returned to your child at the office or in their classroom.


Grade 6 School Leaving Ceremony

The pre-recorded virtual leaving ceremony will be shared with the Grade 6 families on Wednesday, June 23rd. Grade 6s are invited to come on their special time slot to pick up their certificates, t-shirt, etc.


Schedule

The schedule is based on family names listed alphabetically. If you have children with different last names, please choose one of the appointed times to bring all of your children. There is no need to return multiple times for different last names.


We ask that families come to school at their appointed time in order to manage the numbers of students in the building and families waiting in the school yard.

On behalf of the staff, we would like to send a sincere thank you to you, our families, for all that you have done to make this year a success. Your patience and flexibility in often trying circumstances has not gone unnoticed. Our success lies in the strength of our partnerships with you and on that basis, our students have been well served. Thank you!

Happy summer!
