They may also resemble the McCarthy’s yoga and/or dress pants. Please contact your child’s teacher or the office if you have any questions or if you need further information.

The No Hate In Halton Campaign: The #NoHateInHalton will be launched on Monday, November 8th in schools across the Halton Region. This is a community campaign that was developed by our Halton Regional Police Services in cooperation with the School Districts throughout our Region. Our intermediate students will be promoting this during our Morning Announcements, sharing the message that we believe that there should be #NoHateInHalton and that Halton region is diverse & that is what makes it beautiful and vibrant.

Parent/Teacher Interviews: Progress Reports will be coming home on Wednesday November 24th. We will be holding Parent-Teacher Interviews for Kindergarten to Grade 8 students virtually during the evening of Thursday November 25, 2021, and during the day on Friday November 26, 2021. This year you will once again be able to schedule your Parent-Teacher Interviews online. More information on booking your interview will be sent home to families in a school messenger email.

“We know that parents have an important role to play in supporting student learning. Studies show that students perform better in school if their parents or guardians are involved in their education. This is the basis for the principle that students and parents should be kept fully informed about the student’s progress.” ~ Growing Success, page 8.

COVID-19 Safety Measures: For the safety and well-being of all students and staff, parents and guardians must perform daily screening of their child(ren) for COVID-19 symptoms BEFORE leaving for school using the COVID-19 Self-Assessment.

The Government of Ontario daily self-screening tool can be accessed here: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/school-screening/
