It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas
It has been a tough couple of years and every chance to get back to normal is much appreciated.
From Leslie, Amanda, Noah, and Myself I want to wish, all those who celebrate a very Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year.
As a fun way to make sure people are checking out our website, send the answers to the following questions to firstname.lastname@example.org to be entered into a drawl. Mr. Mielke will buy the winner free lunch from Carolines or Jigs. We will make the draw the first Friday we are back. The questions are:
1) When did Mr. Mielke move to the North East?
2) Where did Mrs. Irving teach before coming to Porcupine?
3) Who is the treasurer of the SCC?
4) Who are 3 of our community partners?

When Should I Keep My Child Home?
- Have a fever.
- Are coughing (more than just occasional)
- Sneezing (more than just occasional)
- Have an excessively runny nose (have to blow their nose multiple times a day).
- Vomiting (outside of motion sickness)
The principle that we use is that if a student is expelling something from their body, they should likely stay at home until it stops.
Our teachers are fully prepared to support students at home who are required to isolate or who are sick for extended periods of time.
If students are at school and displaying any of the above symptoms or any other COVID symptoms, parents will be asked to come and get them and take them home. We will then work with the families to determine when it will be safe for the child to return to school (in many cases, it is when the symptoms have stopped).
We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause to our families, but feel that in light of the new health orders, it is needed to ensure that all students, staff, and families are safe and that face to face learning can continue at PPCS.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this, please contact us at the school at any time.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the new health orders, we would encourage you to contact the Saskatchewan Health Authority or your local MLA.
We recognize the challenges of the ever changing situation, but remain committed to the idea that...together, we got this
