In addition to the School District 59 protocols, please read our procedures below regarding our school:
- If students are unable to follow the protocols after reminders, for the safety of others, they may be asked to go home.
We ask for your patience and understanding as we work through the school re-opening process. If you have questions or concerns, please contact us.
- Drop-off 8:45-8:50
Avoid sending students before 8:45 as there will not be any play time before school.
All school doors will be locked throughout the day with no public access, so being on time is imperative.
Teachers will be waiting at a designated area outside near the entrance that their students typically enter. The initial of their last name will be there to identify their area (T for Tobin, L for Leuze etc.). There will be dots marked off in 2-meter increments where students will stand. For the Schwabs, Mr. Schwab’s area will be close to his classroom window while Mrs. Schwab’s area will be along Monkman near the fish on the fence.
Please come to the school grounds prior to June 2nd and see where your child/children will meet their teacher to avoid confusion on their first day back!
Adults also need to respect social distancing. Please do not loiter and leave once your child is on a dot in the correct area. You may also be sending your child/children on their own however, it is imperative that they know where they are going to meet their teacher and that they respect each other’s space.
If your child is riding a bike/scooter to school, please note the closest bike rack to your child’s morning line up, as this is where they will lock up their bikes. Please remind them ahead of time that they need to social distance when parking their bikes at the racks. This means they must wait their turn if someone is parking their bike when they arrive.
- Dismissal 2:20 – 2:31
Teachers will take their students to their designated areas outside between the above times. If you have communicated to the teacher that your child/children are walking home, they will leave. If you are picking them up, they will be waiting at their area with their teacher. To assist with social distancing please leave as soon as you pick up your child/children.
Students will not be allowed to linger on the playground or school fields after 2:31.
- Recess and Lunch times
Times will be staggered to avoid congestion outside. Depending on the day of the week, there will only be about 30 students outside at once.
Students will be washing their hands before and after going outside to play. Students will be reminded to social distance while playing and especially when the playground equipment opens.
- Lunch Time
- Microwaves and water fountains will NOT be available. Water bottles are a must.
- Please send food and snacks that are quickly eaten as students will not be allowed to take food outside with them for recess or lunch recess.
- Lunches must arrive with the student and no one will be getting lunch delivered.
- Containers must be labelled and please send forks and spoons with your child/children if needed as we are not providing these at this time.
- Hand Sanitizer
Soap and water will be our primary source for cleaning students’ hands. However, if you are wanting to send hand sanitizer it must be SCENT FREE.
Teachers have emailed parents regarding the days in which their child/children will be attending.
