Community Clean-up

As part of Earth Day and our school's continued efforts to promote environmental awareness, we will be holding our MPS Community Clean-up on April 22.

The area will consist of the school grounds as well as areas of the Community Centre grounds. If you have work/garden gloves at home, please bring them.

CARDBOARD CHALLENGE

The date has been pushed back a bit but we still need you to save your cardboard!


Later in May, students will be participating in the Cardboard Challenge, an initiative designed to promote recycling, teamwork, and creativity. Students will be building large items out of cardboard.

You can support this initiative by simply sending in some of your household cardboard waste. Boxes from large items are very helpful, but so are smaller, uniquely shaped items. Cereal boxes, paper towel tubes, tissue boxes, and other common household cardboard items will not go to waste! We will be accepting cardboard donations until the end of May.

RUNNING CLUB

Running Club has started for students interested in attending this year's Road Race event and Track & Field. Please ensure your child has appropriate running shoes for gym outdoors and for training. More information be sent home about the LCVI Road Race once it is finalized.

COVID PROTOCOLS

Masking

Although masks are no longer required for students, staff, and visitors in schools and on school transportation, masking continues to be strongly encouraged. It should be noted that when schools have crossed the threshold of 30% absences due to COVID-related reasons, KFL&A Public Health has issued a letter indicating that masking is recommended due to the presence of COVID in the school and community. Masks continue to be available daily for all students, as well as PPE for all staff.

Many students and staff are choosing to continue to wear masks at times, or consistently, and we support every student’s (and family’s) decision around masking.


When masking is required (as of March 21, 2022):

    • Under federal travel requirements, upon return from international travel, individuals must always wear a mask when in public spaces (including schools and childcare) for 14 days.
    • Individuals who are age 11 or younger or fully vaccinated, who tested positive or had symptoms of COVID-19, can return to school or work after their 5 days of isolation if symptoms are improving. They must, however, wear a well-fitted mask in all public settings (including schools and childcare) and avoid activities where they would need to take off their mask (for example, playing a wind instrument or removing their mask for sports) until 10 days after their symptoms started or from their positive test date.
    • Individuals who are a close contact of a case of COVID-19 or a symptomatic individual who are not required to isolate, must wear a well-fitted mask in all public settings (including schools and childcare) for 10 days from their last exposure to the person with COVID-19 symptoms or positive test result (or from when the symptomatic or positive person finishes their isolation).
    • Please note that exposures within the school setting are no longer included in the definition of a close contact.
