Parent Update

September 30, 2021

Dear Parents,

Friday, October 8 is Picture Day. Students should wear their dress uniform. Order forms were sent home this week with each child. Please pay on or before October 8 or a handling fee of $8.50 may be applied. Ordering online allows you to select backgrounds and other products.

The next Virtus Class is October 4. See the sign up information below.

Progress Reports will go home with each child next week.

Grandparents Day, scheduled for October 22, has been postponed. It will remain a minimum day so please plan on picking up your student at noon.

If your child is absent, please call or email to let us know the reason. We need to know what the symptoms are if they are sick. Thank you for your help with this. We have created a Covid section with information below.

Remember to wash your hands and wear your masks. Vaccinations are recommended and protect everyone.

God Bless,

Mrs. Ferguson

Allergy Aware School

As an 'allergy aware' school our aim is to inform our community about the risk of allergies, with a focus on food allergies and also to provide a supportive environment in which children at risk of anaphylaxis can feel safe.

We would ask that all families refrain from sending any tree nut or ground nut products to school. Some of our students are highly sensitive to both.

There are many types of allergies that we are aware of in our student population. To maintain a safe environment, we are also asking that any treats sent in for special events must be store bought and all ingredients must be clearly labeled.

We want to thank you for your consideration in the health and well being of our Bruins.
