Dismissal Procedures for Elementary Schools

SEPTEMBER 17, 2020—With almost one week of classes for all students completed, we are grateful for school family cooperation that has helped make student school experiences safe and positive.

As we proceed into the school year, we are refining our school-based procedures, including how we release students at the end of the school day. Although we initially communicated that we required parent permission to release students at 3:22 p.m., this is no longer the case.

Stay home when you are sick

Education is important but the health and safety of our students and staff is most important! Please, do not send your students to school if they are sick. See the image for more information. If children are sick at school, they will be monitored in the isolation room and parents/guardians will be contacted to pick them up immediately. Please keep children at home until all symptoms are cleared up!

Thank you for helping to keep our school and community safe!

School Supply lists 2020-2021

Please find supply lists linked below. In addition to the school supplies, all students should have a labelled and filled water bottle each day as the fountains will not be operational. Students in grades 4-8 and those using transportation services are required to have and wear a non-medical mask and masks are recommended for kindergarten to grade 3 students.  Sanitizers will be available to all students with adult supervision. If you wish to send individual hand sanitizer with your child, please ensure it is scent free.

note about classes

We have had several calls and e-mails from families wanting to switch student classes for a variety of reasons. In the spring, our staff spent many days thoughtfully creating classrooms for the fall. As we received new students, we placed them in classrooms paying careful attention to creating similar sized cohorts. Our teachers have been working very hard to prepare for their students and to ensure safety is a priority. Our focus will be on safety and on education. Many people would like their child to be with a certain teacher or a certain friend but we will not be making class changes.
