Thursday, June 28, 2018 Early Dismissal in Elementary Schools
All schools in the York Region District School Board are committed to improving student achievement and well-being. On Thursday, June 28, 2018, an early release day will take place to allow elementary teachers and support staff to take part in meetings during the afternoon of that day. These meetings will allow for school staff to engage in culminating activities regarding the review and revision of the School’s Improvement Plan as well as year-end and transition activities that support student success.
As has been our practice in the past, students will attend school during the morning of Thursday, June 28, 2018 only. Students will be dismissed early that day at 12 noon. Arrangements will be made to ensure that students who are normally bused to and from school will receive transportation at this time. Parents/guardians whose children attend after school child care should make appropriate arrangements to address this change in schedule.
Each year our Staff changes for a variety of reason. Change can be a hard for some of our students, so this is why we are letting the community know of the changes before the school year is finished. As always, we continue to appreciate your support in this process and know that we can count on your parenting expertise to assist your child with adapting quickly and positively to the changes. We are very appreciative of all the work our staff does to make students feel safe and for creating a warm and inclusive learning environment. Please extend warm wishes to our staff who are moving on or going on a leave, and welcome with open arms those who are joining us in September…

Thank you to all our Lunch Program volunteers for the work they did so we did not have to prepare a lunch every day! The pizza and milk programs are finished. The last day for Sub lunch is Monday, June 25th, and the last day for Swiss Chalet and Lunch Lady is Tuesday, June 26th. With this in mind, please ensure your child has snacks and lunch each day this week!
Yearbooks are an excellent way to preserve the memories of a school year. Our Yearbook committee, which is made up of students and staff, have been working diligently to put together a beautiful book. To order a yearbook, go to:
Use Yearbook ID Code: 12398318.
A yearbook starts at $25. Apparently, there was a glitch in the system which has caused some online ordering difficulties. The deadline has been extended to June 27th.
