The grade 5/6/7 class, along with their teacher, Ms. Etmanskie would like to invite you to the viewing of Pay it Forward, a documentary about Wolfe Island Community Volunteering.
Students spent the better part of 3 months working on the short documentary with the help and support of Mickayla Pyke and the participation of Paul Hogan; both fellow Island residents. The class has submitted the documentary for the Kingston Regional Heritage Fair.

Cardboard Challenge - postponed
Although masks are no longer required for students, staff, and visitors in schools and on school transportation, masking continues to be strongly encouraged. It should be noted that when schools have crossed the threshold of 30% absences due to COVID-related reasons, KFL&A Public Health has issued a letter indicating that masking is recommended due to the presence of COVID in the school and community. Masks continue to be available daily for all students, as well as PPE for all staff.
Many students and staff are choosing to continue to wear masks at times, or consistently, and we support every student’s (and family’s) decision around masking.
When masking is required (as of March 21, 2022):
- Under federal travel requirements, upon return from international travel, individuals must always wear a mask when in public spaces (including schools and childcare) for 14 days.
- Individuals who are age 11 or younger or fully vaccinated, who tested positive or had symptoms of COVID-19, can return to school or work after their 5 days of isolation if symptoms are improving. They must, however, wear a well-fitted mask in all public settings (including schools and childcare) and avoid activities where they would need to take off their mask (for example, playing a wind instrument or removing their mask for sports) until 10 days after their symptoms started or from their positive test date.
- Individuals who are a close contact of a case of COVID-19 or a symptomatic individual who are not required to isolate, must wear a well-fitted mask in all public settings (including schools and childcare) for 10 days from their last exposure to the person with COVID-19 symptoms or positive test result (or from when the symptomatic or positive person finishes their isolation).
- Please note that exposures within the school setting are no longer included in the definition of a close contact.
