PRPS has a Great First Week at School
At PRPS Kindness Matters
PRPS School Organization of Classrooms
Our School organization will be finalized and communicated to families this week. Any changes to a student's class placement will take place on Monday September 20th. We understand that changes to a student's classroom placement can be difficult. As always, we will do our best to support students with these transitions. We appreciate your understanding and support through this process.

Message from the PRPS Office
The school office is open between 8:30AM and 4PM. Please call or email if you need assistance with a matter. Access to the school for students and families, is by appointment only at this time. At your appointment you must wear a mask, use the hand sanitizer, sign in and indicate that you have self screened for symptoms of COVID-19.This is a busy time of year for us, and we thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
Document Verification for New Registrations
Junior Kindergarten students and students new to Ontario schools need to provide some documentation to the school. Please plan on bringing the required documents to school on your child's first day. There will be a table set up by the front doors where we can confirm we have seen these documents.
Data Verification Forms
A hard copy of the information we have on file will be sent home this week for your review. Please review this information, make any necessary changes and send this information back as soon as possible. This information is important so that you receive school communications and we can reach you in case of an emergency. These forms must be returned not later than September 24th. Thanks for your attention to this matter.
Medical Plans of Care & Medication at School
If your child requires special care for a medical condition or takes medication while at school, please notify the school's office so that the appropriate arrangements and paperwork can be completed or updated. If you have already informed the school of your child's medical condition, you will be contacted, if needed, to establish or update a Plan of Care for your child while at school.
If your child needs to take prescription medication while at school there are forms that need to be completed and returned to the school each year before the medication can be administered. Please click on the links to access those forms. Also, please check the expiry dates on all medications (ie. Epipens, Inhalers) to ensure they are current before sending them to school.
Please let us know if you have any questions. We are always happy to help clarify information. We look forward to having your students back in our classrooms and to seeing you all soon!
Watch the video below for helpful tips to assist your child with transitioning back to school in these uncertain times.
School Parking Lot & Bus Loading Zone
We continue to need your help. Since the safety of our students is a priority for all of us, parents are requested to use the Student Drop off & Pick up parking (to the right at the entrance) when driving children to and from school.
The school driveways and the bus loading zone in front of the school need to remain clear of traffic and parked cars.
Finally, if you are parking along Walsh Road, please be mindful when parking that the buses need room to navigate the narrow roadway. We would hate to see anyone’s vehicle get damaged by accident. Thanks again for your attention to this matter.
Please physically distance at all times when you are picking up your children.
