Connaught School Newsletter
Tansi! Hello Connaught Families!It is hard to believe that November is here. Our first few months have gone by so quickly. We are so proud of how much our students are learning. We have a few sayings here at Connaught School. The first is "Everyday Matters". We truly believe in our students and we are committed to ensuring ALL students are successful while attending Connaught School. We believe that every minute of the day matters and we don't have one second to waste.
Secondly, we say that we are "growing our brains". We approach every day at Connaught School as an opportunity to learn great things. One of our school values is GRIT, which means that we want our staff and students to work hard and not give up; to persevere, and challenge themselves. We are so proud of our students and the GRIT they have shown so far this year. We will continue to challenge our students to "Reach Higher, Grow Stronger" every day!
We look forward to connecting with families this month to brag about our students and share all we have learned. We want our students to feel proud of themselves and share with their family the goals they have for the rest of the school year. Stay tuned for more information about Student-Led Conferences from November 15th-19th.
Here's to another great month at Connaught School!

Rapid Test Kits
I do want to clarify one point about the rapid tests. The rapid tests should only be used if the person has no symptoms of Covid. The rapid tests should not to be used if a person has symptoms, because the rapid test measures something different related to Covid illness, than an official PCR test does. If you or your child has any symptoms, you should contact 811 and go get a PCR test at a testing site. That will give you the most accurate results.
For symptoms of Covid, please refer to the picture above. Those are the symptoms we should be looking for.
Students who are deemed a close contact at school, will still be permitted to leave isolation to attend school only. They will have to stay in isolation in the evenings and weekends. They will not be permitted to participate in extra-curricular activities during the isolation period.
If a student is deemed a close contact of someone in their own home with Covid, they will be required to isolate. In this case, they will not be able to attend school and must stay home.
If you require further clarification, don't hesitate to call us at the school.
Lunch of the Month
The November lunch of the month will be hosted by our Grade 3 class and will be on November 25th. Watch for more information to come home soon!
