Therefore, we want to make students and families aware that where pupils are currently placed, will most likely change prior to the end of September. We need to ensure that our classroom numbers adhere to Ministry sizes. Our school has grown by over 120 students from September 2017, therefore we will need to make changes to many of our classrooms. Preparing students for this change will ensure a smooth transition when the time comes to re-organize classes. Letters of students being affected will be sent home prior to September 25th . </p><p>Safe Arrival: Please call our Safe Arrival line (705-778-4323 – Extension 1) if your child(ren) will be late or absent. Messages can be left 24 hours a day. Student Agendas: Due to the high enrollment of students in our school, we did not have enough agendas for each student. We have ordered additional agendas and will distribute to students as soon as they arrive. </p><p>Before and After School Daycare: Just a reminder that students being dropped off for daycare need to use the East Entrance of the school (across from the Parking Lot). </p><p>School Council: Our School Council is a huge part of our school community and works hard to create community events and support the school in its efforts to reach all of our students’ potential. Please consider joining our Council in either an official or unofficial role. School Council meetings are open to all parents, but if you’re interested in being a voting member, please pick up a nomination form from the school office (nomination forms will also be emailed out). Nominations Forms are due in the school office before September 24th. We generally meet once per month, meetings not lasting longer than 90 minutes. </p><p>Parking Lot: We would ask that parents/guardians please follow the directions of our staff and student safety patrollers 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 will be closed from 3:20 p.m. – 3:45 p.m. each day to ensure minimal traffic on school property during dismissal time. This is to ensure the safety of our students. Also, when coming to the school during school hours (including break time), we would ask that you park by the office and the side of the building and avoid blocking fire exits. Please be cautious when driving on our neighbouring streets to ensure student/pedestrian safety. South Simcoe Police and By-Law officers have informed us that they will be monitoring our school neighbourhood regularly during school entry and exit times. </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. 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 cooperation with this matter. </p><p>Message from the School Office: Bumps and bruises are a daily occurrence in an elementary school. The office staff welcomes donations of snack bags for ice, paper towels, and Kleenex. Thank you!<br></p>
