Elginburg & District Public School - March 30th

Grade 8 Graduation Plans

We are so proud of our Grade 8s and can't wait to celebrate them!


Grade 8 Graduation will be on Wednesday, June 16th with a Rain Date of Thursday, June 17th.


It will be an OUTDOOR ceremony. Each graduate will be allowed to bring 2 guests as of today's rules; this could change.


Graduation photos will be taken but the company has not given us a date, yet! We are working hard to secure a date.


All of these plans must be flexible due to COVID 19. We may have to revise them over the next few months depending on what guidelines the Health Unit put out and what "colour" our area is in June. Regardless, we will make it work!

ASYMPTOMATIC COVID TESTING AVAILABLE TO STUDENTS

Students are invited to participate in voluntary asymptomatic testing (no symptoms) for COVID-19 during designated times.


Families must book appointments for students using the assessment centre’s existing booking process (online or by telephone). Walk-ins are not permitted.

Parent/guardian consent is required for testing of students under the age of 18. This testing is only for students, staff and bus drivers who DO NOT have COVID-19 symptoms. Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 must self-isolate and get tested for COVID-19 at a Community Assessment Centre.

Dress For Success in our Muddy/Wet Yard

At Elginburg, we believe children should get dirty!


Playing in water and mud is a part of childhood! Learning from play is an extremely important part of growing up! We embrace their curiosity and innovation.


If your child hates wet pants or feet, please send an extra pair of socks and pants. Tall rubber boots are also a great way to keep their feet dry!


We apologize for the extra work the mess at the end of the day creates at home!

End of Day Safety

Our school has been working with the City of Kingston, Kingston Police and the Limestone District School Board to improve student safety before and after school.


I encourage you to send your child on the bus, as it helps with traffic congestion.


We are asking that you use the traffic lights on Sydenham road to cross the street or hold your child's hand.


The Police have been in front of the school giving out tickets several days a week. We are still working on a more permanent solution.


Thank you,

Martha Duncan
