School Update – Week of October 11, 2021

“Not what we say about our blessing, but how we use them, is the true measure of our Thanksgiving.” – W.T. Purkiser

Wishing all our St. Brigid families a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.  We are thankful for your support each day as we navigate our new school year together. 

Thanksgiving Food Drive

Thank you for everyone for their donations for our Thanksgiving Food Drive to support the Georgetown Bread Basket.  As a school community, we collected over 2 381 pounds of food to help those in need. Way to go St. Brigid!

Photo Days

The scheduled dates for our photo days this year are as follows:

Tuesday, October 12th: FDK – Grade 3

Wednesday, October 13th: Grade 4 – Grade 8

Morning Entrance

The school bell for our morning rings at 9 a.m. to signal the start of the school day.  If your child arrives later than 9 a.m. please ensure they enter through the front doors of the school and check in with the office staff upon arrival.

Fall Donation Fundraiser

Please see the letter below, sent home on Friday, October 8th for our Fall Donation Fundraiser. We thank you in advance for your support!

Bus Student Seating

Please be reminded that students have been assigned seats on both their morning and afternoon bus routes.  Students have been told their seats at the beginning of the school year and reminded throughout the year if changes occur.

We would ask that you go onto the following link for HSTS to check for your child’s seat on each bus and remind them of their seat numbers.  The seat they sit on in the morning will not necessarily be the same seat at the end of the day. 

It is very important that students sit in their assigned seats.  If there is a COVID-19 situation whereby the bus is involved, we use the seating charts to do contact tracing and determine those affected, therefore ensuring your child knows their seat is critical. 

Mind Up

Please review the following documents regarding the Mind Up program that all students are taking part in this year.

Lunch Programs

Stay tuned for more information to come via email regarding lunch programs starting soon!

Daily COVID Screening

Parents/guardians/students must complete the Ontario School Screening Tool each morning prior to or upon arrival for each student.  Students will no longer be required to show/provide their classroom teacher confirmation of screening daily.

Screening Tool: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/school-screening/

Students only attend school if a “✅” is  obtained.   Students with COVID-like symptoms or who receive an “X” indicating “Do not go to school” must remain home and isolate as instructed.

Happy Thanksgiving!
