Ross Report: November Newsletter
Dear Ross Families,
As we reflect on the first 2 months of school, from where we started to how far we've come already, we are very appreciative of the support from you, our Ross family. We are very fortunate to be working and learning alongside your children every day and feel privileged to be part of their 'in-class' learning experience.
Since the start of school, students have taken part in a number of events and learning experiences already. To highlight a few... students had the opportunity to participate in a Terry Fox walk of the school yard, take part in Rowan's Law Day by wearing purple, participate in and learn about Secret Path Week, and dress up in costumes or black and orange to celebrate Hallowe'en.
Ross is a great place to grow and learn. We are looking forward to more events coming in November and December. Stay tuned!
Information from the Office
Daily Covid-19 Assessment
Parents are required to screen their children for Covid-19 symptoms each day before school Located on the DSBN Website or our Ross Website, you will find the Daily Covid-19 Family Screening Tool which will help you to determine next steps should your child be displaying any symptoms. If he/she is showing symptoms, please use the tool to assess next steps and to determine what should be done next. Parents may need to keep their children at home and may need to contact NRPH or a health care provider to see if testing is recommended. We appreciate your efforts in working with us to help keep our school safe.
