Casual Custodians Needed
We Made it Half Way
Very soon term 2 will come to a close and term 3 will begin. This, historically, would mark the beginning of a new semester; this means that we have officially made it halfway. I once read an article that the perception that time moves faster as you get older is a real thing. Scientifically speaking, it is because as we age a year becomes a smaller and smaller portion of our lives (i.e. when you are 5 a year is 20% of your life, but when you are 50 it drops to only 2%). I would say that COVID has further enhanced this phenomenon. This year has quite literally flown by in a blur. Until recently, we have experienced a fairly normal year and for that, we are very grateful.
As we head into semester 2/term 3 we have much to look forward to. Eventually, extra curr travel will resume, 3456 basketball will start up, literacy week activities are coming, foyer furniture is back, the foosball tables are getting a much-needed overhaul and a fresh set of classes is about to start. I think that as much as we have developed resiliency we have also developed a great sense of hope. I can't wait to see what term 3 has in store.
Stay tuned for the release of term 2 report cards. If you would prefer a paper copy of your child's report card, please click the button below and complete the request form.

Supporting Students Who Must Isolate
- The teacher will reach out to let you know the format of delivery (paper copies or digital).
- The work provided may not match the work done in class, especially if the classwork is discussion-based.
- TO avoid overwhelming you and your child, we will only send new work when completed work is sent back to the teacher.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the school. It is very important that students learning continues during periods of mandatory isolation.
Incidental visits, such as dropping off or picking up students, dropping off lunches, etc do not require proof of vaccine or negative test. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the school.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.

New COVID Protocols
If you receive a letter from the school or health explaining that your child has been close contact...
- If your child is fully vaccinated (at least 2 weeks from their 2nd dose). They can attend school and all activities as long as they are symptom-free.
- If your child is not or is unable to be fully vaccinated, they can attend school as long as they are symptom-free but must isolate from all extracurricular (school and non) activities for a period of 10 days from exposure.
- We strongly recommend using rapid testing to monitor status, regardless of symptoms.
- If your child becomes symptomatic, regardless fo vaccine status, you should contact 811 and follow their instructions.
