Dear Parents,

The first two days of the school year were a success. Students have quickly adjusted to the new routines and safety protocols.  Thank you for sending your children with masks. Having more than one helps to keep them comfortable should one get wet.  If you have any questions or concerns about your child's day, please reach out to their teacher.  Click here to see some of the guidelines we have shared with students in the big school.

Ensuring the health and safety of our children is a priority this year.  Please for all of our safety, do not send your child to school if they are not feeling well or have symptoms of COVID-19.  Every day before sending your child to school, please click here to complete the screening tool.  Please know if your child presents with any of these symptoms at school we will contact you to pick them up so that they can recover at home and ensure to keep the school environment safe.

Kindergarten:  Monday will be the first day of school for our kindergarten children at Inuuqatigiit and the Big School.  If you are walking or driving your child to the main school, please do not arrive before 8:50 a.m.  

If you have neighbours or friends with children who are kindergarten age and live in our area, please guide them to our office.  We are always accepting new registrations.

Parking

Thank you for leaving the Drop-off Parking spots for parents and families with accessibility needs and extremely small children.  

Lunch

We have two nutrition breaks.  One at 11:00 a.m. and another at 1:45 p.m.  Please pack enough for students to eat during the day. Also, send your child with a water bottle. We do not have the ability to heat food or provide forks, spoons, or knives.  Please be sure to provide food that does not need to be heated and utensils for eating because we do not have the capacity to heat food or provide forks, knives, or spoons. 

Garbageless Lunch- we have a commitment to reduce the amount of garbage produced in the school.  Garbage and compostable food will be returned home.  

School Council

What are your dreams for your children?  Come and join other parents to learn about our school; build a school community that supports the academic and social development and physical health of your children. Join us on Tuesday the 21st at 4:30.  All parents are welcome.  I will be there to answer any questions you may have about this school year or any general questions you may have. We will be looking for parents to lead or co-lead the group.  We will send the link to join the meeting online, next week.  

R.E.Wilson Parent Facebook-- do you have Facebook? R E Wilson Parents have a Facebook page.  To register for this group, please email: sc-robertewilsonps@ocdsb.ca

Student Verification Form- please remember to return them to school with your child. If you did not receive one, please contact your child's teacher.

Early Pick-Up

If your child has to leave school early for an appointment, please email the teacher or leave a note with the time of pick up.  We can have your child ready for you so that we do not have to call the class and disrupt their learning in the class.

Stay Connected through Google Classroom

All students have access to Google Classroom so that if your child is away from school, they can log into the classroom and follow the posted assignments.  These will be either recorded messages or activities students can do independently or with your support.  If you do not have your child's login information, please contact the classroom teacher.

Meet the Teacher Online

As we are not having guests in the building, Meet the Teacher will be either virtual or through phone calls. Please be sure to update your phone and email address so your child's teacher can make these arrangements with you directly.  If you have any questions about your child's learning or how things are going at school, please reach out to your child's teacher.  

Wishing everyone a good remainder of the weekend and a good week ahead.

Beatrice
