GRADE 9 CLOSING

Grade 9 Graduation Ceremony:

If Outdoors:

  • 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.

If the graduation ceremony needs to be held indoors due to weather:

  • 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). Students and their family head down the stairs, turn left and enter the gym. Once they receive their diplomas and have a picture taken, they exit the school through the gymnasium doors.

COVID-19

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:

  • wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol
  • 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.

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.

Kind Regards,

Norbert Carpenter
Director
