Dear Families,

We had a wonderful "Fake March Break" School Spirit Week -- there were some fantastic, creative outfits, lots of smiles, compliments and laughter....it was just what we needed! We hope you enjoy the pictures that captured some of the many fun moments (and the amazing learning and engagement that continues to impress us every week!)

We are excited that next week it will officially be Spring: the students are definitely excited about the warmer weather, the field is drying up nicely and we look forward to lots of outdoor learning, exercise and play time. Staff will be reinforcing the COVID safety protocols around beginning and end of day with students, as we are noticing that a bit of 'spring fever' has set in, and we want to continue to be vigilant. A reminder that when students arrive at the beginning of the day, they must go immediatly to their class cohort line up and wait quietly. If you drop your child/ren off, or if they walk or bike to school, please have them arrive as close to 9:15 as possible: this will make the time that they must spend standing in line as short as possible.

Please continue to complete the COVID Self Screener for your child/ren each morning, and if any symptoms are present keep them at home (siblings too) and follow Public Health direction. Detailed information can be found on the LDSB website: https://www.limestone.on.ca/news/what_s_new/ministry_revises_c_o_v_i_d-19_screening_tool

Don't forget that our Virtual Book Fair continues until Sunday evening! Detailed information can be found below.

We hope that you have a relaxing weekend, enjoy the sunshine and warmer temperatures. Take care, and we look forward to seeing everyone next week!

Mme Peart and Mrs. Davey
