Home & School is doing a BBQ for students on Friday, June 25th. If your child would like a Hotdog, could you please send a note into their teachers by Thursday so they will know how many they will need.
Students will arrive in alphabetical order. Students will need to remain in their vehicle with their parents in the traffic circle until notified by a staff member that it is their turn. Please try to follow the below time slots as best as possible.
Last names starting with A – D from 6pm – 6:15pm
Last names starting with F – S from 6:15pm – 6:30pm
Students will walk up the walkway to the main doors at the office. They will be greeted by staff. At this time they will receive their grade 9 diplomas and any awards they received. It is at this point that parents can get pictures. Once done, students will walk (with mask) to the old main doors where the student will wait until all grads join them for a class picture. Parents are asked to continue to their vehicle and park in the Recreation Center parking lot where they can wait for their child.
Once the picture has been taken, students will go to their parents’ vehicle and exit the parking lot.

Students will arrive in the same order as above. Students and their family will enter through the old school entrance (a staff member will be there to direct you).

COVID-19 is a contagious disease. Proper hygiene practices will help lower your chance of getting it or spreading it to others. You should continue to do the following:
cough and sneeze into a tissue or the bend of your arm
avoid touching your face with unwashed hands
dispose of used tissues in a lined waste container and then wash your hands.
Please remind your children that Masks are mandatory on all busses and during transition times during the day. Students in grade 7-9 are required to wear a mask at all times during instructional time as well as during transition times.
Parents please screen your child for symptoms daily and please keep them home from school if they have any symptoms of COVID-19. Also those who have travelled out of the province, or may have been in contact with someone who has returned from travel or arrived in PEI within the last 14 days and should have been isolating, should not attend school.
Three resolutions were presented and approved at the AGM. These are included in the Federation’s Policy Manual, and forwarded to the appropriate decision-makers requesting their consideration to take action on the requests. Resolutions are available at: https://peihsf.ca/agm/resolutions
3. Elect New Home & School executive in June
Are you leaving your post as a Home & School executive member? We ask all outgoing executive members to find someone to fill their position for a two year term, and help the new rep better understand their role. June is an excellent time to elect new executive and board members to your Home and School Associations. The Federation provides training for individual Home and Schools, and will return to larger group training sessions when health protocols allow.

This is a reminder to please complete and return your student’s consent form for the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible. Public Health Nursing have begun the school vaccine program for grades 7, 8 and 9 and will be visiting schools throughout the next three weeks.
On the consent form you are asked to check one of two boxes, either “yes, I do consent” or “no, I do not consent” to the student named on the form receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. If the student does not have a consent form indicating that their parent or guardian has checked the box to consent to the vaccination, they will not be able to receive the vaccine in the school setting. Additionally, if the student has consent but at the time of immunization is refusing to get the vaccine, the student will not be immunized and the parent/guardian will be notified. Public Health Nurses are highly skilled health care providers with in-depth training and knowledge of vaccines and take great care in providing a safe environment for students, as well as school staff and families throughout the school-based immunization programs.
HI PARENTS: ON FRIDAY, JUNE 4TH IS ORIENTATION DAY FOR OUR INCOMING KINDERGARTEN STUDENTS. THEY WILL COME FROM 8:45 AM-11:30 AM. OUR PRESENT KINDERGARTEN STUDENTS WILL NOT HAVE SCHOOL ON THIS DAY. THANKS
