Parents are asked to continue to their vehicle and park in the Recreation Center parking lot where they can wait for their child.

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

Dear Parents/ Guardians,

As announced yesterday by Dr. Morrison, CPHO is planning to run COVID-19 vaccination clinics in schools for Grades 7, 8 and 9 students. The vaccine roll-out is planned to take place across PEI throughout the month of June. Your school will be in touch with you in the coming days with more details on the date for your child’s school.

You will be asked to sign and return a consent form for vaccination. This consent form is essential to ensuring your child is vaccinated at the school. If the consent form is not signed, your child will not be vaccinated at the school and will need to book in a community clinic.

This is an important step in ensuring the safety of all of our students and staff. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.

Welcome To Kindergarten

May 6th, 2021

Due to Covid regulations, Welcome to Kindergarten will be split into two groups, and only 2 parents per child to attend. Due to regulations we ask that siblings do not attend. Just a reminder that masks must be worn at all times by parents & children regardless if it is held indoors or out. As well physical distancing and all other Covid protocols must be followed.

(sign in/sign out, sanitizer, declaration upon entry).

Group 1: 6:00 to 6:30 PM Children whose last name begin with A to M will attend at this time.

Group 2: 6:30 to 7:00 PM Children with last names begin with N to Z will attend at this time.

If the weather allows we will host the Welcome to Kindergarten outdoors, but if raining we will host in the front foyer. Regardless of the weather, we will still be hosting 2 groups.

Supplies for the 2021 – 2022 school year will be purchased by the teacher during the summer so it is very important that all fees be paid by June 4th to ensure the classroom is equipped with the necessary supplies for a successful year. Receipts will be available. The fee for supplies is $45.00 per child.
