Wagner Elementary School

March 2022 Newsletter

Our school year is quickly flying by. I hope that everyone had a great Family Day and enjoyed the February break.

I would like to take this opportunity to remind parents to remind their child to be careful around the water and ice on our playground. Each year, we have a few students slip on ice and end up in the water. It causes a very wet and uncomfortable day for the student. Feel free to send an extra pair of pants and socks just in case...We also have a dryer at our school that we can dry wet clothes.

We want to continue to make our school a very safe and comfortable place for each student to be educated. We continue to set high standards of student learning. In order to have our students learn at the highest possible level, we continue to address negative behaviour in our school. Creating a safe and healthy school climate is one of the best ways to improve student learning.

With this high standard of learning, we want to remind parents of the importance of your child reading every night. This nightly reading practice will strengthen your child’s reading and raise their level of understanding. As your child goes through the grades, the need to be able to read at grade level becomes more and more important. Your child has progressed form learning how to read to where your child is “reading to learn”.

As I wrap up my message, I would like to thank our parents for sending your child with proper coats, mitts, and boots during our cold and snowy days. I would also like to thank parents for graciously donating money for Telemiracle. Have a great month of March!

NESD Updated Safe School Plan

• Students, staff, families who are ill should stay home

• All students and staff must self-monitor for symptoms and use the NESD screening tool

• Designated spaces shall be assigned for those who may become ill during the day and can be accommodated until a parent can take the child home

• All visitors must sign in when entering the school. A welcome station with a sign-in log, hand sanitizer and masks will be visible in the main school entry

• Schools will adopt a mask-friendly approach in all settings. It is recommended that all students, staff and visitors wear masks in common spaces such as hallways, washrooms, lunchrooms, libraries and school buses.

• Masks are NOT mandated or required for students and staff. If students or staff choose to wear masks, they should feel more than welcome to and masks will be available if they so choose.

• Rapid test kits are available at the school office for any families who may need. Parents may stop by and pick one up anytime.
