Tuesday, September 3rd. It’s an exciting and busy time for everyone! By now your child’s teacher will
have contacted you to welcome them to the class. Teachers will meet Grade 1-5 students on the
playgrounds on Tuesday morning.
Grade 1 and 2 students on Red Wing playground.
Grade 3-5 students on the Blue Wing playground.
Kindergarten students have a staggered entry of either Tuesday or Wednesday and will attend
from 9:00-11:00 on the day they communicated to the teacher. Our Open House will be held Wednesday, September 4th
from 6:30-7:30. It was not co-ordinated, but Bliss Carman School will be holding their Open House on
the same night at 5:00. We’re hoping that having both events on the same night is not an inconvenience.
Please be reminded of the following:
-If your child has a health, allergy or mobility issue that we have not already been made aware of the
homeroom teacher should be advised as soon as possible.
-Supervision on the playgrounds begins at 7:55
-Dismissal is at 2:10 (grades K-2) and 3:15 (grades 3-5) Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday
-Wednesday dismissal 12:00 noon
-Although most school communication is electronic, several required forms are sent home the first week
for your information and signature. Please check book bags.
-A parent handbook can be found on our school website.
-Student supply fees may be paid by cheque or through the cashless electronic system.
**Please note that there is currently no cafeteria service available. A new company has been recently awarded
the contract and they hope to be operational soon. Students will require a lunch from home for now.
We wish you a safe and relaxing last long weekend of summer and look forward to a rewarding and successful school year!
