Welcome Back!

We hope that you had a fantastic holiday full of rest, fun, laughter, great food and time with your favourite people. We are SO excited to welcome everyone back! Please join us in the front foyer on Monday morning (Jan. 7th) anytime between 8:30-9:00am for a hot chocolate/tea/coffee so we can start the year off right! Caffeine & friendly colleagues is a great way to start our week - BYOM (bring your own mug). Looking forward to seeing you all back at the best school in Limestone!

Health & Safety:

Thanks for taking some time to go over criteria for a successful snowy recess (how to slide down the hill, no snow throwing, appropriate games, climbers, forts, etc). We want to ensure everyone is safe outside during recess play.


Beginning of Day:

We are asking that teachers please work as a divisional group so that at least one teacher is at the students' door in the morning to open it when the bell rings and monitor their entrance. The goal is to have classes entering (and using the staircases) in an orderly fashion under teacher supervision. Thank you for helping with this.


End of Day:

Thank you for keeping students in their classrooms (or Discovery rooms) until the final bell. On the days that this occurred before the holidays, the bus loading of the kinders and primary students was smooth and our 2nd floor students were able to safely leave the building in a staggered exit. This helped out our staff who are on duty during this time a great deal. Thank you!
