Reminder about Lunches/Snacks: Please not Peanuts, Treenuts and Seafood

Keeping our students safe is paramount and we ask that parents carefully pack their children’s lunches.  We have several students in our school who live with severe life-threatening allergies to peanuts, nuts, seafood and other foods (anaphylaxis). All snack and food items should be nut free, as well as any particular items that are identified by the classroom teachers (i.e. sesame seeds, fish). Likewise, we ask that that no substitute nut spreads (peabutter, wow butter, etc.) be sent to school as they smell and look exactly like peanut butter. Please continue to choose items carefully when sending lunches and snacks (from home and restaurants) to school, keeping in mind specific allergies in your child’s classroom. Please remember that there are no food celebrations in class. 

Safe Arrival Program

It is essential that all absences are reported to the office in a timely manner. Please use the absence reporting email link, which can be found at the bottom of our homepage, to report your child’s absence. In some cases, numerous unsuccessful attempts are made when calling cell, work, home and emergency contact phone numbers. As per board procedures, Halton Regional Police must be called after many attempts have been made, to ensure student safety. Please continue to follow our established procedures around student safe arrival.

Self-Assessment Screening Tool

The Ontario government has released changes to the COVID-19 School Screening Tool used to monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 in children.  Please use the October 1st Update – COVID-19 Screening Tool for Children tool before leaving for school each day.
