Weather

Students should be prepared for all weather types.  Spring is just around the corner and the school yard will be “wet”.  Please ensure that students are equipped with rubber boots, splash pants and rain coats for the spring.  Extra clothing is recommended for all grade levels.  Labelling your children’s outerwear and lunch boxes is recommended.

Drop-offs at the Front Door

On occasion, during PD days or other unexpected school closures, some students are dropped off and parents drive away.   In the morning, if your children are not attending Daycare or are not taking bus transportation, please accompany your child into school when dropping them off.   As well, please ensure that your children are dressed to go outside when dropping them off before the morning bell.  Front door drop-off time starts at 7:45 a.m.

Lates, Absences and End-of-day Notices

Please be reminded that it is very important to call in your children’s lates and absences.  As well, if you are changing your child’s end-of-day arrangements, notes to the teachers are required on that day – please indicate your child’s full name, teacher’s name and the date. 

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 either of 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).  Thank you for your cooperation.

Helpful Information for Parents

Help students get a good night's sleep every night.  National Sleep Awareness Week ends with the return to Daylight Saving Time on March 12, when clocks move ahead one hour and too many students lose an hour of sleep.  For more information, visit www.kidshealth.org.
