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.
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.
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
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.

been updated with links to some great resources.

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
to access the survey.
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.
