Music Makers

What a wonderful event!  Mme Hamilton and Mme Perrier, along with many South Hull students, put on a spectacular performance at the Music Makers event that was held at Symmes/D’Arcy High School on April 15.  The event was well attended and we are extremely proud of our students.  Kudos to you all!

Spring Weather

We are asking students to come prepared for all types of weather: raincoats, splash pants and rubber boots must be worn during the spring as we are going outside on misty days.  Back-up clothing is recommended for all ages.  Please keep your umbrellas at home.

Absences

Please be reminded to phone the school should your child be late or absent.  You may leave a message on the answering machine anytime.

Lates

There is an increasing amount of late arrivals on a daily basis.  School starts at 7:55 a.m., please ensure that your children are on time.  When arriving late, students are missing morning instructions and their late arrival is disruptive to the class.  Each student that is late is entered in the school database as mandated by the Ministry of Education of Quebec. 

End of Day pick up

For parents who are picking up students at the front door at the end of the school day, please be reminded that the pick-up time is 2:30 p.m.  If you are not able to pick them up at 2:30 please contact the Daycare to arrange after school services.

Early Pick-up and Change of End-of-Day Arrangements

Please ensure that you write a separate note to the teacher on the day that you are picking up your child for an appointment, or notifying the school regarding a change to the end-of-day arrangement.  Please write the date, the full name of the child, the teacher’s name and the arrangement.

Bus Lane

Please be reminded that the morning bus lanes are busy.  Please abide by the city bylaws and pay close attention to the road signs that indicate that there is no access to Crescent North between 7:00 – 8:30 a.m.  As well, do not pass by the school buses when their lights are flashing.

Parking

We understand that there is a lack of parking around the school.  Please be reminded that due to limited space, there is no parking in the staff parking lots.  There is a
15-minute free-zone in front of the school.  There is parking on Crescent Drive west of Vanier, on Crescent Drive east of the school, on Oval Drive (inside the Crescent) and on Lynn Street (behind the school).  The side street directly in front of the school, Des Frenes Rouge, is a no-parking street.

MedicAlert Foundation Canada

South Hull is registered as a participating school in the MedicAlert Program.  This is a free service offered to any child in our school who may need a MedicAlert bracelet for any reason (allergies; special needs; anxiety; medical, etc.).  Once you sign up, your child’s bracelet and pertinent information are linked to a 24/7 emergency response system.  How to enroll, please contact Linda Hennink in the office; she will provide you with a brochure to fill out which you mail directly to MedicAlert.  For general information, you may visit www.nochildwithout.ca.  However, please do not apply online as our handout brochure is linked to our school’s enrollment in the program.  Thank you.
