Staff members will be holding grade signs on the tarmac and field, and students will be asked to go the appropriate sign. When they arrive at their designated meeting place, they will meet their classroom teacher and then relocate to their classroom. SK students will go to their previous year’s teacher/DECE where students will be escorted to their new classroom.</p><p> First Day of School – JK Students: On the first day of school for JK students (September 6th), students and families will meet in the gymnasium at 9:15 a.m., where they will meet their teacher/DECE and then relocate to their classroom.

Therefore, we want to make students and families aware that where pupils are placed on the first day of school, most likely change prior to the end of September. We need to ensure that our classroom numbers adhere to Ministry sizes. Preparing students for this likely change will ensure a smooth transition when the time comes to re-organize classes. </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. – 3:40 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. 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>

Staffing Updatehttp://had.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/81Staffing Update<p> As we come to the end of the 2017-2018 school year, we wanted to take some time to thank some of our staff members who will be leaving us at the end of the month. We have had several occasional teaching positions that will be coming to an end which include Mrs. Gleason, Ms. Lyons, Mr. Monger, Mrs. Takacs, Ms. Tilling and Ms. Running. They have been wonderful additions to our staff, and we wish them the best as they move onto future career opportunities. Our school has also been fortunate to have had several occasional education assistant positions which will conclude at the end of June. We will be saying goodbye to Ms. Pecchia and Ms. Jensen. We appreciate their efforts to support our students and wish them well in their future endeavours. We have also been fortunate to have Ms. Nickel supporting us in the office. Her role at Chris Hadfield Public School will also come to an end as the school year comes to a close. As we wind down the school year, please take some time to thank and say goodbye to these wonderful professionals that our students have had the benefit of working with.​</p>
