If staff and/or students are symptomatic, they must stay home. The assessment tool can be found at the following link - https://covid-19.ontario.ca/self-assessment/ </p><p>HELPING HAND FOODBANK: Due to the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic, we were unable to hold a Food Drive this year, so we opened up SchoolCash Online for families to make donations to support our local Food Bank. We are pleased to share with you that, families donated $800.00 to this cause, and our School Council donated an additional $500.00 on behalf of our community. We have sent Bradford Help Hand Foodbank a cheque for $1300.00. Thank you for your generous donations as we continue to support our local community. </p><p>FLIP GIVE FUNDRAISER - This season, fundraising for Chris Hadfield Public School is going to be so much easier with Flip Give, a free school fundraising app. We earn cash back on every purchase we make all year long! All you have to do is shop anytime with the brands you already love, like Home Depot, Walmart, Amazon, Sport Chek, Indigo, Old Navy, Apple, Esso, and Loblaws. No more going door-to-door selling chocolate bars - it’s completely virtual and contactless. Join our team now and you’ll get a $5 bonus the first time you shop: https://flipgive.app.link/teams/join?fundraiser_name=Chris&joincode=6SDXWC - Or, download the FlipGive! App and enter this code: 6SDXWC </p><p>PARKING LOT: The entrance coming into our school on West Park Avenue is closed from 9:00 a.m. until 3:45 p.m. This entrance will be used for bussing and Emergency vehicles only during this time. We have had to make this decision due to the numbers of vehicles speeding through this area, creating unsafe conditions. There have also been numerous occasions where people have parked in the fire safety zones preventing Emergency vehicles from accessing these locations. Visitors can access our parking lot behind the school using the Miller Park Avenue entrance during school hours. We would ask that parents/guardians please follow the directions of our staff on duty in the parking lot, before and after school. We are providing direction in the interest of student safety. We would also ask that our disabled parking spaces are not blocked. The parking lot continues be closed from 3:20 p.m. – 3:45 p.m. each day to ensure minimal traffic on school property during dismissal time. We have connected with South Simcoe Police and By-Law officers who have informed us that they will be monitoring our school neighbourhood regularly during school entry and exit times. Above all, we would ask that respectful and safe practices are top priorities on our school grounds. </p><p>Walking To School: As our school and community continues to grow, traffic congestion within our school parking lot and surrounding streets is a safety concern for our students and families. Chris Hadfield Public School is a designated walking school and we would ask that families make a concerted effort to have students walk to and from school. This would establish healthy routines for students and promote an environmentally friendly practice. Due to some parking lot construction that took place over the summer some of our bike racks were moved by the portables adjacent to Miller Park Avenue. Students are also welcome to lock their bikes temporarily on the school fence in this area. We continue to work with our partners at South Simcoe Police and the town of Bradford to ensure the safety of all of our community stakeholders. We appreciate your co-operation with this matter.<br></p>

Please know that there is no expectation for this. We greatly appreciate the support our families give our staff in so many ways throughout the year! Making donations to our local food bank or other charities to help support families in need would be a beautiful gesture for our community at this time. If you are wanting to send a gift to school for a staff member, the below safety protocols will be followed at the school: 1. Home baking is not allowed to be sent to school as Public Health Authorities have recommended not sharing food between households 2. Gifts will not be opened in front of the students this year. All gifts will need to sit for 72 hours prior to opening for safety reasons 3. Homemade craft/gifts/cards will also be accepted, but will also need to sit for 72 hour prior to opening Your support and kind words during these times are the best gifts we could ask for. </p><p>FLIP GIVE FUNDRAISER - This season, fundraising for Chris Hadfield Public School is going to be so much easier with Flip Give, a free school fundraising app. We earn cash back on every purchase we make all year long!

School Reorganizationhttp://had.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/199School Reorganization<p>​Dear Chris Hadfield Families, </p><p>Firstly, we would like to thank all of our families for their patience, understanding and kindness as we have worked through a most challenging school year. As a school community, we have certainly demonstrated resilience, compassion and a positive mindset as we worked towards this new “normal”. </p><p>As we have communicated with you during the Fall, there will be a number of classroom shuffles that will occur throughout the school year, as we have had nearly 300 students move to the Learn @ Home model. </p><p>During the week of December 7th, families will be emailed a survey which they need to complete, indicating if they are interested in having their child switch learning platforms (From Learn @ Home to In-School, or vice versa). The school board will then collect this data and determine availability which will result in some class changes in late February. Please ensure that we have your proper email address and that you complete the survey for each of your children. </p><p>Additionally, we have had over 40 new in-school registrations since mid-September, resulting in the need to re-organize some classes after the Winter Break on January 4th . We are receiving additional staff that will allow us to reduce the number of students in certain classrooms that are currently at capacity. Families of students who are being affected by these classroom moves will be notified during the week of December 14th . </p><p>We cannot emphasize enough, what a challenging task this re-organization process has become (in the midst of an ongoing pandemic), as we attempt to re-shuffle some of our classrooms, while adhering to the new enhanced health and safety measures. That being said, staff consistently works diligently to ensure a smooth transition. </p><p>Unfortunately, we are unable to consider any parent request for class placements. Class assignments will be final, unless another reorganization of classes need to occur within this school year. Please ensure that you maintain consistent communication with your child’s educators as this will continue to promote a positive schooling experience. We appreciate all of your support through this process and we feel fortunate to work in an outstanding school community. <br></p>
