TECHNOLOGY RETURN: On Monday, February 8th students who have been loaned technology (i.e. chromebook, ipads, SEA, etc.) from the school are asked to return it to school on this day. There are two options for families to return the technology and charger. They can send the technology (with charger) back with their child who can hand it into their teacher, or staff will be available from 9:00 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. to receive returned technology with charger, outside the main doors of the school. It is important that we receive the borrowed technology (with charger) back at school on Monday, so that we are able to disinfect them and prepare them for student use as in-person learning has returned. Thank you for your cooperation.

CLASS RE-ORGANIZATION: In December, the SCDSB emailed all families a survey, asking parents/guardians to indicate whether they were interested in changing learning platforms for their child (i.e. Learn @ Home to in-person or vice-versa). Results of this survey has been shared with the school and we are working on finalizing class placements for Term 2 based on the information provided to us. Due to space in classes, not all requests are able to be accommodated. If your child will be moving classes, you will be notified by the school by end of day, February 1st. New class placements will start on February 17th (whether we have returned to in-person learning or not), which is the beginning of Term 2. We are not accepting any requests for class placements from families, because much of the changes were facilitated centrally by the school board. If you have not heard from the school by Friday, February 5th, then your child will remain in their current class. 

KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION: If someone in your household or in your neighbourhood is turning 4 in 2021, it is time for them to register to start Kindergarten this coming September! Registration can take place online at https://www.scdsb.on.ca/elementary/planning_for_school/registration - if you need assistance, do not hesitate to contact our school office.

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. Above all, we would ask that respectful and safe practices are top priorities on our school grounds.
