Weekly Update #21

Pre-K Applications: This year’s Pre-K applications will open on Wednesday, February 24th. Children born in 2017 are eligible for Pre-K for the 2021-2022 school year. 

Health and Safety/Situation Room Guidance– As you know health and safety protocols are critical to maintaining the health and safety of students and staff. We continue to work with the situation room to report any cases of COVID in the school community and provide all necessary information for decisions about exposure and quarantining that may lead to closure. We have been fortunate that with the support of our families and staff following guidelines we have had minimal cohort closures compared to other schools. It is critical that families notify the school about any positive COVID cases in the household. Additionally, students should not come to school sick or with a temperature.  

Respect for all Week-Each year we celebrate Respect for All week and remind our children about kindness and respect being essential elements in our school community. This coming week is a four-day week, and we will have a spirit day each of the four days connecting to this theme. See the flyer by clicking the link below for spirit day descriptions!


Parent Chat: Kindergarten and Grade 1 families have received an email from Mrs. Golia with information about our first Parent Chat, which will take place the week that we return from mid-winter break.  

Lunar New Year and Mid-Winter Recess: Friday, February 12, schools are closed in observance of Lunar New Year. Happy New Year to our families who celebrate! Monday, February 15, to Friday, February 19, schools will be closed for Mid-Winter recess.
