Since there is a close connection between regular attendance and progress at school, parents are encouraged to promote steady attendance of their children. It is the parent’s responsibility to notify the school and the bus driver if your child is going to be absent. If your child will be away, please email the teacher (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call the school (780-986-5151) to leave a message.
At the discretion of our bus driver, you will be notified by a phone committee member if school is cancelled due to inclement weather. If the busses are not running our school will be CLOSED.
Although classroom discipline may vary somewhat with the individual teacher, the emphasis is always on maintaining an atmosphere suitable for good learning. When a student acts in a manner which hinders his or her own learning or the learning of his classmates, action needs to be taken. In most instances a simple discussion between teacher and student is sufficient. In some cases however, more serious efforts must be used, which may eventually involve the parents and teacher.
We hold one fundraiser a year to help raise additional funds for field trips. Information regarding this fundraiser will be provided to you by the teacher at the appropriate time.
Parents provide a daily lunch, snack and filled water bottle for their child. The teacher will provide information on nutritional choices and will discuss Canada’s Food Guide with the children.
A spare set of clothes in the back pack is also recommended.
Our parents will be required to come and help in the kindergarten at least once every class cycle (this depends on the number of students). If you are unable to come on your roster day, we require you to have a replacement or, whenever possible, trade days with another parent. Your day at school is very important to your child so please make every effort to be there. Our roster hours for parents are 09:15 to 12:00pm and a roster calendar will be provided to you at the start of the school year.
