Shave for the Brave - Change of Date
Our Second Annual Shave for the Brave will now take place on Monday, May 4th at 1:00 pm instead of  April 24th  This year we have 15 brave shavers who are raising funds and awareness for YACC.

Lunch Program:
As was mentioned prior to the Easter Break our lunch program will now take place three days per week. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. On Tuesday and Thursday students are required to bring their own lunch. Please note there will be NO HEAT-UP service on these two days.

Afternoon Dismissal:
We would like to thank all parents and guardians for your cooperation when picking up your child after school. However, the congestion in the front entrance of the building is still a safety concern for our students. Therefore we are making the following changes to our afternoon dismissal only.

Starting on Monday, April 20th, all primary students will be dismissed from the south entrance, the one facing Jackson United Church at 2:20. Once primary students are put on the buses and they drive around to the elementary exit the remaining primary students will be dismissed. We ask that you meet your child at that exit and not the main door. If you are driving we encourage you to park towards the primary end of the parking lot.

Once the buses arrive at the Elementary exit bus students will be dismissed. Those elementary students who are walking will have to wait until the busses leave the parking lot at which time they will be dismissed through the north side exit - the one facing Ridgeway Variety.

No students will be dismissed through the front entrance. The main door will not be unlocked.

Please note there are no changes to morning and lunchtime arrival routines. Students can be dropped off as usual at the main entrance.

Digital Citizenship:

School Climate Surveys – Parent and Guardians of Grade 2 and Five Students:
Each year the Department of Education conducts a school climate surveys in grades 2, 5, and 7 to level III. They are administered to gauge the quality of education in the province are receiving and where improvements are needed. Students complete a paper survey in school while parents, guardians and teachers complete online surveys. If you do not have internet access or have trouble accessing the survey please visit the school for assistance and / or access to a computer to complete it. Please see the memo and brochure sent home on February 23rd for more information.

Parents and guardians of Grades 2 and 5 students click here to access the survey.

Head lice:
We have been informed by Community Health that this is a problem again. They are seeing a higher number of cases than usual and we have had some cases reported to us as well. Every year the same problem arises so please check your child’s head every night. If your daughter or son has long hair it would be advisable to braid it or put it up in a ponytail. If there is a problem then you should contact the Community Health Nurse at 488-2700. This is a very tormenting problem and can be very difficult to clear up if your child gets it. Unless we get the cooperation of every single family then this will continue to be a concern for all of us.

Contacting Your Child’s Teacher:
If you need to contact your child’s teacher please call the school to arrange an appointment. Optionally you may contact him or her via the email address found on the school website.
