medication pick up

To our families,

As we near the end of the school year, please pick up any epipens or medications for your child if we have them in the office. Epipens can be brought back for the first day of school in September or the last week of August to our school office.

Hold and Secure has ended

We have been advised by York Region Police that the bear in the neighbor is no longer posing a threat to the local community. The hold and secure at our school has now ended. We appreciate everyone’s support throughout our Hold and Secure. I also want to thank our students and staff who responded appropriately this morning. Our staff have debriefed with students as needed on today’s events. We continue to advise everyone to be alert and cautious when going home today and throughout the week. Please continue to communicate any safety concerns to York Region Police and ourselves as needed.

Mr. Collins

Summer weather ahead

It is hard to believe that just over a month ago, we were talking about a major ice storm, and now the forecast is calling for summer like weather.

Our school will implement a Hot Weather Action plan when conditions warrant in accordance with both our board and school’s Health and Safety procedures. Some general guidelines we recommend to all our families is to:

– Ensure children dress in appropriate clothing for the temperatures

– Ensure your child comes to school with a drink for snack and lunch

– Ensure sunscreen is applied before your child leaves for school

– Have your child wear a hat for additional protection at recess times

While many of us welcome the lovely weather this week, we do want to ensure that we have a safe and healthy time while enjoying the outdoors throughout the remaining weeks of school.
