Parents please remember that if you are coming onto school property to pick up your child at the end of the school day, you continue to maintain your physical distancing from one another and if this is not possible we encourage you to wear a mask. We thank you for your support on this matter.
Thank you to all parents/guardians for performing daily screening of their child(ren) for COVID-19 symptoms before leaving for school.

Please note: This screening tool has been updated once again as of October 1st, as the Ministry of Health determine various changes in symptoms of COVID-19
As we continue to try to keep limited number of students in the hallways, it is important that students bring what they need with them in the morning. This includes, books, agendas, water bottles, and clothing. Again, we appreciate your support in trying to keep our school safe.
