Reminder: Complete Your Parent Survey!
As part of our school and the division's planning and reporting processes, we conduct an annual parent satisfaction survey to find out how parents feel about their child's education. Parent, student and staff survey results help us reflect on our work. A sampling of survey results are included in our Annual Education Results Report which is updated and posted to our website annually in late fall.
Please take a few minutes to complete the parent satisfaction survey as honestly and accurately as you can. We ask that you complete one survey for each child you have enrolled in our division. The survey deadline is April 28, 2023. All responses are confidential and anonymous.

Healthy Hunger Lunches
Don't forget to place your Healthy Hunger Lunch Orders! Next week is McDonalds
If your child is away and has ordered hot lunch, please email or call the office by 11:00 a.m. to direct your child’s hot lunch. It can be given to a sibling/another student or can be picked up in the office starting at 12:30.
If a student needs to leave early, the office MUST hear from a parent/guardian. Please email or call the office and we will allow the student to sign out & meet you outside (or walk home).
If a student will arrive late, they are to sign in at the office. If we have been informed the student will be late, that will be an excused late. Without hearing from a parent, the student would be marked as unexcused.
If you have any questions, please ask the office.
