Student Daily COVID Screener

Please continue to screen daily for Covid symptoms.

School-Day is here!

Sign up for School-Day: Permissions & Payments!


Limestone is excited to offer our families a new secure portal to complete permissions and payments online. With School-Day: Permissions & Payments, you will be able to complete permission forms and payments from any web browser using your SmartPhone, tablet, laptop or desktop.


Through this new online portal, you will be able to pay for items such as:

  • Field trips

  • Sporting events

  • Student cards/athletic fees

  • Hot lunch


The new easy-to-use portal will remove the risks associated with sending money to school with students, the frustration of lost or missing permission forms, and significantly reduce the amount of paper our school consumes.


A School-Day Introduction Letter was sent home for each child on April 25th. Use the instructions in it to sign up for a School-Day account at www.school-day.com and connect to your child’s events and activities.


If you have any questions, please contact the school.


With your support, we look forward to a successful implementation of this practical application!

"...We may be different, but that doesn’t make us rivals. Let’s stop polarizing and start empathizing. Be there for each other when times are hard and be ready to listen. You don’t have to agree to understand, and you don’t have to fix it to help..."


#GetReal. Before you weigh in, tune in.

CARDBOARD CHALLENGE

Students will be participating in a Cardboard Challenge, an initiative designed to promote recycling, teamwork, and creativity. Students will be building large items out of cardboard.

You can support this initiative by simply sending in some of your household cardboard waste. Boxes from large items are very helpful, but so are smaller, uniquely shaped items. Cereal boxes, paper towel tubes, tissue boxes, and other common household cardboard items will not go to waste! We will be accepting cardboard donations until the end of May.

Earth Day Clean-up!

What a great job cleaning up around the school grounds and Community Centre!
