Just a reminder to parents and guardians of Kindergarten
students that there will be no school for Kindergarten
students on Friday, April 28th and Friday, May 5th due
to scheduled KinderStart sessions
Lunch Program :
We would like to thank the Wabana Boys and Girls Club
and some of its workers for helping with our Kids Eat
Smart Lunch Program over the past three months. However,
the program those workers were a part of is ending after
Easter. As a result our Lunch Program will depend on our
current volunteers. While we can guarantee a 5 day
program for the two weeks after Easter for the remaining
two weeks on the current lunch envelope we may have to
resort back to a three day program after May 5.
We can always use a few extra volunteers. If you are
interested please call the school. Three hours one day
per week is all that is required.
Lunch Program - Heat Up Reminders
If you are sending along items for heating please
remember that items such as frozen tv dinners, Kraft KD
cups or any item that requires 2 minutes or more to heat
are not permitted. Our limited volunteer resources and
equipment does not allow time to heat these items . You
are welcome to deliver any heated item to school just
prior to lunch (11:30 for Grades K-3 and 11:55 for
Grades 4 - 6)
If your child is ordering lunch please make sure a lunch
envelope is submitted to the office.
Phone Messages to the School
We are reminding parents and guardians once again to
make sure any after school plans are communicated to
your child before he / she leaves for school in the
morning. If your child is going somewhere other than
home please send along a note for your childís teacher.
One note at the beginning of the week is sufficient if
your child is going to the same destination every day
during the week, such as the Wabana Boys and Girls Club.
If it is an emergency, such as being stuck in St. Johnís
and other arrangements for your child need to be made
then please call the school.
Morning drop-off for students:
Just a reminder to parents and guardians
that teachers do not start morning supervision until
7:55. As per section 1.3 of the NLSED Student
Supervision Policy - Administrative Procedures and
are not permitted to drop off students at school before
regular supervision times commence, without prior
authorization from the principal.
This is for safety reasons to ensure that
supervision is in place when students arrive. For St.
Augustineís Elementary we ask that students arrive at
school between 7:55 and 8:10. From 8:10 to 8:15 there is
a home room period. Instruction starts at 8:15 and all
student should be at school and ready to start by this
