As an additional precaution, we continue to ask that all parents and guardians who are dropping off or picking up students at our school, ensure they are wearing a mask or face covering. Arrival and dismissal times are very busy, and we would appreciate that the adults dropping off and picking up students, wear masks for this brief period of time to support all of our community members’ health and safety. With the recent positive Covid-19 cases in our school, it is important that we are all vigilant in doing our part. Thank you for your continued support and co-operation. </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 number 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.</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.<br></p>

Our current student enrolment continues to grow, so therefore classes will need to be reorganized to balance out class sizes and adhere to Ministry class sizes. This also allows for the possibility of new classes being created for September 28th. We also anticipate staffing changes throughout the month of September, so students and families should be prepared for these changes. Classes will change again in February when students are able to choose a different learning platform at this time, so the reality of students changing classes and educators throughout the year is likely. </p><p>September 30th – School Council Meeting (Virtual) at 6:00 p.m. – Details to follow </p><p>Messages: </p><p>CHPS TERRY FOX RUN - Chris Hadfield Public School is proud to take part in this year’s 40th Anniversary of Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope.
