Are you wondering who your child's teacher is?  Well join us on Sept. 13th at the school.  Teachers will do introductions and a short overview of their grade and classroom and you will be able to put a name to a face!  Presentations will begin at 6:00pm.  Schedule will be as follows - 1st presentation from 6:00 - 6:20pm, 2nd presentation from 6:30 - 6:50pm.  At approximately 7:00 - 7:15 all the staff will come together in the gym for a formal introduction and a short presentation.

Changes/Compliments/Concerns - Transportation Issue Form

Any requests for changes, reporting of concerns, and sharing of comments should be sent via the Transportation Issue Form, as these are prioritized over emails.  This includes: Bus stop changes, driver issues, late buses, hazards, etc. Bus stop changes will only be addressed after October 1.

 

Empty Seats/Courtesy Seating – Not in effect until October 1

OSTA is responsible for processing and approving all empty seat requests after October 1.  Please DO NOT place your child on a bus until s/he has been assigned to a stop.  Your child’s safety, and that of other students, could be compromised. Empty seats are allocated based on availability, age, distance and a number of other parameters. Empty Seat Application

 

Get in the Zone!  The Walk and Roll Zone!

School zone safety is everyone’s responsibility.  If you live in the Walk Zone, we encourage you to walk your child to school instead of driving.  Or Walk a Block…Park away from the school and walk the rest of the way. For more information regarding pedestrian safety: Walk and Roll Zone

The first day of school for the 2018/19 year is Tuesday, September 4, 2018.  


Teachers and their class lists for next year will be posted outside the school by 9:00am on the first day of school.  


The grade level lists will be posted close to the entrance/exit doors for the specific grade.  All staff will be outside at 9:00am to guide students to the correct classroom and welcome students back!


If your child(ren) will be taking the bus to school this year, please have them take the bus on the first day and meet them at the school.  This will allow them and the bus driver to meet and confirm the correct bus for the year.

SK = Red

Gr. 1 = Purple

Gr. 2= Yellow

Gr. 3 = Orange

Gr. 4 = Green

Gr. 5 = White

Gr. 6 = Blue



Junior kindergarten students will have visits scheduled on September 4th and 5th.  Parents of JK students received a letter in July indicating their child’s teacher, interview time, and staggered entry date.

Day 2 - September 5, 2018:  JK students who have already had their orientation visit and are enrolled in EDP, return to school today and join in with the SK students.  Orientation visits continue with the rest of the families.  These children come to school with their parents for their scheduled visit and then go home with their parents.  They return the next day to begin their school year.
