Dear Families,

As we head into the weekend, we want to acknowledge the effort of so many students who participated in our virtual Remembrance Ceremony this week. Thanks to Mrs. K and Mrs. McKenna for creating this opportunity. It was a powerful message for all classes and a moving tribute to our veterans.

Please see below for some safety updates and reminders about the week ahead.

Safe Practices and Protocols

Playgrounds continue to be closed before and after school on regular school days.
Morning arrival and after school pick-up should be as close to bell time as possible. (8:25 am and 2:28 pm)
Children must come directly to their line-ups upon arrival at school.
When adults are escorting children on and off site, please maintain 2 metres physical distancing from other children and cohort line-ups. Thank you for your help as we work on addressing this.
When possible, children are encouraged to come to line ups independently in the morning. (Kindergarten and early primary remain an exception)
While masks are not mandatory at this time, we encourage adults to wear masks at drop off and pick up time.
Thank you to all families for your support as we work to keep our HV school community safe and comfortable for everyone.

Parking Lot Safety Reminders

All children should be using the crosswalks and sidewalks when in the parking lot. Thank you for reminding your child to adhere to safe practices so that we don’t have students moving between vehicles.
Bikes and scooters must be walked on and off school property.

Enjoy the weekend,
