Annual Offense Declarations now need to be submitted online. A unique username, as well as instructions for online registration will be sent to existing volunteers over the coming days. For all new volunteers, please speak with the office staff to obtain the required paperwork. Please be reminded that all Offense Declarations are due to the Board by November 30th.</p><p style="color:#000000;font-family:"times new roman";font-size:medium;">Prescribed Medication: If your child has recently been prescribed medication due to illness (eg. Antibiotics, puffer etc.). The medication must be sent to the office and we cannot administer without a completed “Medication Dispensing Form: Two Weeks or Less”. We’ve attached the document for your reference. Please ensure this form is completed when sending medication with your child.</p><p style="color:#000000;font-family:"times new roman";font-size:medium;">Medical Information: If your child has a medical condition (i.e. asthma, anaphylaxis, seizures, diabetes, etc.), please inform the school office as soon as possible, so that we can put together a Medical Emergency Plan to ensure your child’s safety.</p><p style="color:#000000;font-family:"times new roman";font-size:medium;">Mabel’s Labels Fundraiser: Our Kindergarten Team is hosting a Mabels Labels fundraiser that is ongoing throughout the year. Please take a look at the following link https://mabelslabels.com/c/?funId=4264&cur_website=base and see the various products you can</p><p style="color:#000000;font-family:"times new roman";font-size:medium;">purchase.

Messages can be left 24 hours a day.</p><p style="color:#000000;font-family:"times new roman";font-size:medium;">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 style="color:#000000;font-family:"times new roman";font-size:medium;">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 style="color:#000000;font-family:"times new roman";font-size:medium;">Kiss and Ride: Families, we would appreciate your cooperation to have your children ready with coats, hats and mitts on when dropping them off in the Kiss and Ride. This will help make traffic flow smoothly.</p><p style="color:#000000;font-family:"times new roman";font-size:medium;">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 co-operation with this matter.</p><p style="color:#000000;font-family:"times new roman";font-size:medium;">Message from the School Office: Bumps and bruises are a daily occurrence in an elementary school.

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>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.<br></p>
