Roger Neilson P.S. Review
Family Edition - June 5 - June 9, 2023
Action / Information
I hope you had another great weekend. It's hard to believe that there are only 4 Mondays of the school year left. Please see all the information in the newsletter below...
Don't forget that this Thursday is our "Movie Night" hosted by School Council! See the flyer below for details. This works out well since Friday is a PA DAY for all students while staff work on end-of-year assessments.
Finally, a reminder that the sun is beginning to show its strength and we are reminding students to apply sunscreen and ensure they are protecting themselves from the UV rays before coming to school in the morning.
Have a great week,

COME TO OUR MOVIE NIGHT!!!
ROGER NEILSON BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION!!!
On Friday, June 16 we are celebrating what would've been Roger Neilson's 89th birthday! Students will take part in a variety of fun activities outdoors during 2nd block 1(1:30-1 pm). We will start it off in our gym with a performance from our Dance Club and then head outside for activities hosted by our grade 6 students!!!
Please consider supporting "June" Breakfast Club at Roger Neilson!
However, running a school wide program comes with a cost. Thank-you to all families who donated so far! This support means a lot! We are hoping that families would consider donating to our program again for the Month of June if your child is accessing it in the mornings. Look for this opportunity on school cash online soon. $5 per month, which is roughly 25 cents a day would really help us out.
Thanks for considering!
Updates from KPR School Board!
From the Community:
A reminder to please continue to visit the provincial screening tool https://covid-19.ontario.ca/school-screening/ for COVID related guidance. To support you with decision making, their is a helpful PDF document below, but also in picture format too below that.
In the event of illness at school, families will be asked to pick up students and keep them home until their symptoms are improving, in accordance with the provincial screening tool. Students who develop symptoms of illness while at school will be distanced from other students as much as possible and asked to wear a mask until they can be picked up. Schools will no longer have separate isolation rooms.
Rapid Antigen Tests will continue to be available at schools and will be provided as needed.
If your child is going to be absent, you can use the "very user-friendly" School Messenger app (a free download), to let us know. You can also call the student absence reporting system at 1-844-434-8119. This number is available 24 hours a day. Complete attendance information can be found at this link: https://www.kprschools.ca/en/our-schools/attendance-and-absences.aspx

Our Parking Lot Before and After School
We recognize that our parking lot is a concern. We sometimes do not have enough spots for our staff. The bus company has also asked that we continue to have room for them to safely enter our parking lot. We kindly ask families to not enter our parking lot with your car as it becomes crowed and unsafe for our school buses. We know this is not ideal, especially in inclement weather, but we thank-you for your support with this!
Before and after school can be very busy with picking up and dropping off students with many little ones around. We have also been asked to remind everyone to watch the language we use during this time around our students. Thank-you!
New Bus APP for our School Routes
Visitors to the school are now allowed. When you arrive please ring the buzzer and follow these steps when entering the building:
· Complete the Daily Screener Tool
· Wear a Mask if instructed or if you choose to wear one
· SANITIZE YOUR HANDS
· SIGN IN FOR CONTRACT TRACING
Should you wish to speak with a teacher regarding your child’s progress, an appointment can be made by contacting the office or the teacher directly by email. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation. Your child’s safety and education is our number one priority.
