We are giving out a large number of masks each week. Please send a mask/face covering or two with your child each day they come to school. If your child comes to school without a mask/face covering multiple days in a row we will be calling home for someone to bring them a mask/face covering.

School Attendance

A reminder for all families that the AHS Daily Assessment needs to be completed and actioned each morning prior to coming to school. If your child is experiencing symptoms please choose:


  1. “Flu-like symptoms”

  2. “other illness or injury” If they are experiencing symptoms that you do not deem to be flu-like, or your child has a medical appointment.

  3. “parent excused.” If your child is experiencing no symptoms at all, please choose this. The parent excused absence should only be chosen if you are keeping your child home for a reason that does not pertain to a medical issue. (i.e dance competition)


The child’s attendance is a parent’s indication that this has been completed and the child is able to come to school. Once this messaging is sent out, we should not normally be following up with parents who select parent excused as an absence code. Asking for a medical note for a pre-existing condition should also only occur in rare cases in consultation with admin.


Our guideline for how we handle students with presenting symptoms during the day is the AHS Daily Assessment. If you have any questions, please speak to your admin.

Emergency Drills

During the school year we complete a variety of school safety drills such as Fire Drills, Shelter in Place, Lock Downs and Hold and Secure. We complete these drills to ensure our students and staff are safe in every circumstance that could occur.


When we get closer to the Lock Down drills we will be informing parents through this newsletter as sometimes Lock Downs can be scary for students. We encourage conversations at home about this drill. Teachers will also be preparing students through conversations during class time.

Let’s get our fundraising going and show everyone how we can “try like Terry”!. Every little bit helps.


Our school goal is set to $5000. Let's see if we can blow it out of the water again this year.

SCHOOL PATROL-in front of school

We do have our Gr. 4's provide crosswalk patrol in front of the school but this likely will NOT occur for a few weeks until they have been properly trained. Please be careful using the crosswalks as our front street (53 Ave) is very busy before and after school.


****PLEASE STAY CLEAR FROM BUS LANES AT THE BEGINNING OF OUR DAY AND AT THE END OF OUR DAY*****
