Final Forms Reminder

Every student must have competed Final Forms before the start of school. Please login to Final Forms and check that all of your child's forms are complete. If you completed Final Forms earlier this summer, please note that a new page has been added which you need to sign to be considered complete. You will know you are complete if the list of pages requiring your signature are all green.

A note from our school nurse

Remember that I need to have immunization records, physician's report and dental records for NEW students in any grade including kindergarten. Please make sure you have submitted the most current forms. This applies to EVERY NEW STUDENT regardless of whether you are virtual or in person. Click HERE to access the required forms on our website. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!


  • We will be giving each student a personal pouch with a clean and a dirty side for mask storage during lunch and recess. See photo to the left.
  • Remember that students will not be sharing ANY supplies during the school day. Please label everything you can with your child's name- including headphones, jackets, luchboxes, backpacks, and school supplies.
  • The drinking fountains will not be operational this year but our water bottle filling stations will be. Please consider sending a water bottle with a closed or lidded drinking area with your student.
  • You may also wish to send your student to school with a personal pack of tissues and a personal hand sanitizer.
