Weekly Update February 1 - February 5, 2021

posted Jan 31, 2021, 10:01 AM by Barry Oliver
1)  Electronic Device Return
If you were lent a chromebook during the school closure over the last month, we would ask that they be returned to the school with your child on Monday February 1, 2021 to your child's teacher. Please be sure to send the power cord or any other accessories that were loaned to you.

2) Reminders
We ask Parents to remind our students of the importance of hygiene (washing hands), social distance and mask wearing each day.  We make this a priority each and everyday at school to say these gentle reminders, as the importance of these practices can never be taken for granted.

3) Bus Lanes
Just a reminder that Bus lanes are off limits to parking, drop off and pick up during the hours of 8:00-8:45 AM and 2:30-3:15 PM.

4)  Screen Tool
Please continue to use the screening tool for students each and everyday.  It is located on our website.

5) Bussing
Just a reminder to check the OSTA website each morning for cancellations.  If they are not running in the morning alternative methods of transportation will need to be made for both before and after school.  As a reminder please be ready for your pick up site at least 5 minutes before your arrival time, and please be ready to board the bus upon arrival to your stop.  This will assist our Bus drivers with their schedules.  

6)  Masks  
The Provincial Government is now mandating the wearing of masks for all students in Grade 1-12 effective January 25, 2021.  This is a new mandate for students in grades 1-3.  OSTA will also require masks on students in grades 1-12 who take OSTA transportation.  The new expectation is that everyone wears their masks outside.
