Weekly Announcements, April 9, 2018

Hello! Today is Monday, April 9th and this is Ms. McGrath calling with a few messages for Raiders and their families.
You may have noticed this morning, but we are now waiting on the “field” side of the building in the mornings until the 8:30 bell. This allows students access to the field, track and picnic tables. We don’t wait on that side in the winter as it is colder and windier over there but we will be there until next November when it gets colder again. Dropping students off on the other side of the concrete planters or down by the Zamboni doors on that side of the rink may work better for families at this time of year.
Now that spring is in the air, we have had to speak to some students about our dress code. We simply want to teach students that there is an appropriate way to dress at work and school and basically we do not want to see underwear or body parts that should be covered in the workplace…and right now school is their workplace. If you would like to review our school dress code with your child, please refer to page 10 of the student agenda.
Some families will be receiving attendance letters in the next few days. WE are required to send out attendance letters anytime a student has been absent 10 or more days, excused or unexcused. If you receive a letter and you know that your child missed the time, you do not have to respond. If you receive a letter and you were unaware that your child missed that much time, please contact your child’s Homeroom teacher to discuss.
I have noticed a shortage of tissue boxes in several classrooms this week. These are usually out in the classroom for the use of all as needed but we do go through many, many boxes each year. If you did not send in a box in September, or if you wish to donate a box to your child’s classroom, it would be much appreciated!
Next Monday, April 16th we will be holding another Lockdown Drill. The local RCMP detachment has asked to be present during one of your drills and they will be here as well as they would be involved should we ever have a lockdown at our school.
That is all for this evening!
As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
Thank you and good evening!
