The Chainsaw Carvers

The Chainsaw Carvers return, October 7th – 10th, to complete 8 trees left in our project. Our Eardley Community is invited to come and see them on the 8th and 9th. There will be at least one or two quick carve events where interested buyers have a chance to bid on some sculptures and help the school at the same time: proceeds will go toward Soundfield audio systems and our Outdoor Ed program.

1st Communication - October Update

Indicators on student progress (Green, Yellow, Red) will be published on Friday, 14 October. Occasionally, teachers may request a parent/teacher interview as part of the update. Concerns or questions can be addressed to teachers or the principal through email.

Our Parents & Governing Board

An important function of GB is our Open Forum.  At every meeting, we reserve 10-20 minutes on the agenda, for parents who are not members to address issues that are school wide in nature.  If you wish to speak to the GB during Open Forum, send your topic to Ralph Mason, at rmason@wqsb.qc.ca or Angela Stafford, at angela47@gmail.com.  Similarly, many issues of particular concern, dealing with individual students or staff, should come directly to Mr. Mason. [see member list on GB page]

Emergency Health Forms

Note that your child will be coming home with a 2nd notice request for the Emergency Health Forms. If you have not yet completed one please send it back with your child ASAP.

School Hours

8:00 a.m. to 2:35 p.m. Please note there is no supervision prior to 7:45 am. Students should not  be at school prior to this.

End of day changes

If you must make a change to your child’s end of day routine, please send a note to the teacher/office prior with the appropriate changes.  Note that after 1:45pm, changes cannot be made due to the end of day time constraints.

Procedure for Medication

If your child needs to take any medications at school, the parent MUST bring the medication to the office and a form needs to be filled out.  If your child needs help administering a medication (ie. antibiotics), please note that we will try our very best to give it to them at the prescribed time but there are circumstances which may interfere with regular delivery.  Under no circumstances is it recommended that the child be transporting medication back and forth from school.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

Daycare Services

Contact Anne Carbonneau, Daycare Administrator: at 819-684-4976, for more information. 

Peanut/Nut Free

Eardley School strives to be a peanut/nut free environment. We have students that have life-threatening allergies. Thank you for respecting the health of your child’s schoolmates.

Lunches

Note that we have a hot lunch program and pizza days as well.  Menus for our hot lunch providers are available on our website. Our Home & School Association has a great cook book.  Please contact Home & School at http://www.eardleyelementaryhs.ca or Eardleyppo@gmail.com for more information.

Dress for the Weather

As the children do go outside for recesses we encourage parents to apply sunscreen to their children before coming to school. We also encourage students to wear appropriate shoes for playing outside i.e. running shoes; flip flops are difficult to jump/run in.
