Hawk's View

September 3rd, 2021

What a great first week. It is always a busy first few days but it is wonderful to have our students in the school moving to their classes and interacting. We have missed the energy in this building!

Please note that ALL visitors, students and staff will require a mask to enter the building.

Student Drop Off

Big picture
Thank you to all of our parents for being diligent about our student safety during morning drop off. We are doing our best to keep students safe as they cross at the crosswalk and in the parking lot.


Drop off zones are (see map below);

1) The parent loop on Colwill along the side of the building

2) Past the school on Colwill

3) In the SAP parking lot


Please DO NOT use the staff parking lot for morning drop-off and after-school pick up. These times are very busy and staff that must leave are unable to get out of the parking lot in a timely manner.


Please be mindful of your speed around the school and a reminder that there are NO U-turns.

Crossing monitor- Mrs. Snaterse

A huge thank you to Mrs. Snaterse who is out every morning and after school to ensure students are able to cross Colwill Blvd safely.

Please be kind and respectful to her as she is doing her part to keep the traffic moving as quickly as possible while keeping our students safe.

Course change requests- SEPTEMBER 9th

If your child is interested in making a course change you will need to fill in the attached COURSE CHANGE REQUEST form AFTER September 9th.

This form will NOT be open until September 9th as we have asked all students to try their schedules for one full 6-day cycle. ALL requests will be reviewed and the administration will do their best to accommodate requests in the week of Sept 13-17.

Thank you for your patience as we work through them.

Visitors in Schools- Please make an appointment

Non-essential visitors and contractors ARE NOT permitted in the school or workplace without an appointment. To make an appointment, contact the school directly. If permission is granted and an appointment is made, the visitor or contractor must complete the verbal COVID-19 Screening Questionnaire. If any of the answers to the questions are “YES,” DO NOT enter the school or workplace. Similarly, if feeling unwell or have COVID-19 symptoms—fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat, shortness of breath, loss of smell and taste, aches, pink-eye, nausea —DO NOT enter an EIPS-operated school or workplace.

All visitors must wear a mask when entering our school.

School Council Virtual Meeting

We have decided to have our first school council meeting online. This meeting will be on September 15 at 6 pm. The link will be emailed to all families along with the agenda the day before.


Everyone is invited and welcome to attend! Our hope is to be open about what is happening at school, answer any questions you may have and work together to make FRH even better.


The agenda and the last meeting's minutes are posted on our website.
