Covid-19 Operational Plan

​Our plan is posted in the documents section.

August 18
Water Bottles

Each student will need to bring a water bottle. It should be filled each morning at home before coming to school to avoid line-ups to fill them at school. Fountains are being replaced by water bottle fill stations wherever there is currently a fountain.​ 

August 18
Community Masks

All students will need to bring a community mask. These will need to be washed daily at home, so having a few ready is a good idea. As a general rule, these will not have to be worn in the classroom. They will be used when physical distancing cannot be guaranteed outside of their class bubble, including fire drills. We are thinking that anytime students are outside the classroom without their teacher, they will need to wear a mask. A student may wear it all day if they or their parents desire.


August 18
Return to School - Staggered Entry

Our new kindergarten students should have received a letter telling them what date they begin school. These dates are still valid. If you did not receive a letter, someone from the school will be contacting you on the week of August 31st with this information.

We will also do a staggered entry for grades 1-4. We will divide the students with the first letter in their last name. Students with a last name that starts with A, B, C, D, E and F will be coming on Tuesday September 8.  For example, a student named Zack Estabrooks would come on this day.

Students with a last name that starts with G, H, I, J, K, L and M will be coming on Wednesday September 9. So, a student named Alexa Henderson would come on this day.

Students with a last name that starts N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y and Z will be coming on Thursday September 10. A student named Katie Wortman would come in that day.

Having smaller groups in school for the first three days will allow us to train students on new routines and procedures to keep students and staff safe at school. All families will be contacted either via e-mail or by phone by the school the week before school starts to let them know in which classroom each student will be in for the year.

All students will be at school on Friday September 11 and every day after that.​

Drive Away Hunger


In September the school received $1000.00 towards our Breakfast Program from Farm Credit Cooperative. We are participating in a Food Drive for them on October 12. We are asking for the community to send in food items, no later than the morning of October 12. There will be a truck here at the school that will transport all that we collect to the Helping Hands Food Bank. This food drive will benefit our school community, and the greater community as well. Please help spread the word! Since we are participating in this food drive our school will be entered into a draw to win $500 for the school and $1000 for Helping Hands.

Hold and Secure and Lockdown Definitions
If you look in the "Documents" section of this website, you will find the definitions for "Hold and Secure"  and "Lockdown".  When the school goes into "Hold and Secure", the threat is not in the building and it is business as usual.  However, no one can enter (except students and staff) or leave the building.  It is possible that a "Hold and Secure" can become a "Lockdown" situation and vice-versa.
February 03
Zumba at SES

​Students were rewarded for good behaviour for the month of January by having a Zumba session in our gym with certified Zumba instructor Jackie Rousselle.
