A quick goodbye
helps your child get right to school routines and encourages the independence
When entering the school during the day, all visitors are to check in at
the office. We are happy to help in any
way we can.
If at any time you need to speak with your child’s teacher, please
write a note in the agenda the evening before, or call/vist the main office and
the teacher will be notified. Teachers will contact you when they are not
required to be with students. They are
often involved with meetings or other required duties before or after school
but will make it a priority to contact you as soon as possible.
A reminder that supervision does not start until 8:15,
therefore students should not be arriving before this time.
The school safety plan includes procedures for various emergencies. Students have practiced the procedures
required in case of fire and lock downs.
This month we will practice a
site evacuation. On
Wednesday afternoon (Oct 5) HES students and staff will practice moving to our
safe location which is the Hillsborough Baptist Church. Should there be a real emergency that does not allow re-entry to
the building, everyone will go to this location and parents will be
notified. The practice on Wednesday will
allow students to become familiar with this procedure. After walking to the safe location and
entering the building to see where we are to go, buses will then transport
everyone back to the school.
Finally, principals from HES
and CRHS were recently visited by the RCMP to inform the schools of a community plan that focuses on safe roads
throughout the Hillsborough community including the school zone. In an
effort to make the roads in the Hillsborough area as safe as possible, the RCMP
will be focusing on driver and pedestrian safety. There will be more police presence in the
community and at the schools over the next several weeks. RCMP will be talking to drivers as well as
walkers to promote safety for everyone.
Allergy Alert – Please remember, HES
is a nut free school as we have some students with severe allergies to
nuts. Thank you for helping ensure our
students are safe by not sending food with nut products.
