DAILY COVID SCREENING

Thank you for continuing to be vigilant by screening your child daily for Covid-19 symptoms and for working together to keep everyone safe and healthy. Dr. Kieran Moore, KFLA's Medical Officer of Health, has provided these important guidelines to limit the spread of Covid-19:


  • Monitor for symptoms daily and get tested if you have any symptoms of COVID-19,
  • Stay home if you have any symptoms – do not go to school, work or visit others,
  • If someone in your household is symptomatic, they need to get tested and everyone else in the household must isolate until a negative test result is back,
  • Avoid crowds and closed spaces,
  • Limit close contact to your household (the people you live with),
  • Do not travel outside of the KFL&A area,
  • Wear a face covering and stay 2 metres apart from anyone who does not live in your household,
  • Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer often,
  • Do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth, and
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes

GRADE 8 GRADUATION

This year's Grade 8 Graduation will be planned with Covid health and safety protocols in place. It is important to note that graduation plans need to be flexible enough to change quickly should there be new pandemic developments and Public Health directives. Students attending the Elementary Virtual School will have the option of attending the Calvin Park Graduation, if they wish. We have tentatively set aside June 21/22 for Grade 8 Graduation, however, our Graduation Committee is meeting later this month to discuss our plans and we will share them as soon as they are finalized.

GRADE 8 GRADUATION PHOTOS

Lifetouch Grade 8 Graduation Photos will take place on April 6-9, 19, 20, with Covid protocols in place. There will be an opportunity for students who are currently attending the Elementary Virtual School to also have their photos taken. Guidelines and the schedule for classes will be provided closer to the event.

March 21st each year is the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. This day is observed every year to bring attention to individuals, communities and societies that continue to be subject to the injustice of racism. We all have a responsibility to address the ongoing impact of racism and eliminate it.

IMPORTANT ATTENDANCE CHANGES

Recently, our Board switched to a new data information system which has resulted in a change in the way that teachers report their attendance each morning. Teachers are no longer able to put a reason in for your child's absence. To avoid receiving an automated attendance call, please report all absences using the School Messenger app, by calling the SAFE ARRIVAL attendance number (1-855-257-9349) or by reporting your child's absence using the website (https://go.schoolmessenger.ca) If you are having difficulty using these methods to report your child's absence please contact our office so that we can support you. Informing your child's classroom teacher about your child's absence is still encouraged however families must also enter the absence into School Messenger.
