Messages: 

COVID-19 DAILY ASSESSMENT TOOL: Staff and students must complete the Covid-19 assessment tool prior to coming to school each day. 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/ 

HELPING HANDS FOOD BANK: Our local food bank, Helping Hands is looking for donations. In previous years, our school held food drives to support Helping Hands, but unfortunately, we are unable to do this during the on-going pandemic. If you are able to do so, non-perishable food items can be dropped off at 123 Moore Street during their hours Monday and Wednesday 1-3 p.m., Friday 6-8 p.m. Monetary donations can also be made via e-transfer to treasurer.helpinghandsfoodbank@gmail.com - The website is bradfordfoodbank.ca and their Facebook page is Bradford Helping Hand Food Bank. Phone # is 905-775- 2824 and the official email is helpinghandfoodbankbradford@gmail.com 

FILMING/PHOTOGRAPHING STUDENTS: While we understand that families may want to take a picture of their child going to, or coming from school, it is important that you do not capture other students in these photographs. More importantly, if you do capture other students, we would ask that you do not post these photos/videos on social media to respect our families’ privacy.

 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. 

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.
