Information Regarding School Start Up

Biking at the year end camping trip to Fintry Provincial Park!
  1. We hope you have all had a fabulous summer! We are so excited to be planning for the new school year and can’t wait to see all our students and families again. We wanted to provide some basic information as you think about school start up next week. See below for details.
  2. First day is Tuesday, September 3rd for all students EXCEPT new kindergarten students. When students come to school on Tuesday, September 3rd, they are to line up as they did last school year.  Students will be in their last year classrooms for this first day back. Traditionally, the first day of school has been a day to reconnect with the teacher and peers from the previous school year.  This procedure allows us to finalize our numbers with any new registrations in order to configure our classrooms with certainty.  All new students are asked to report to the office. At 10:15 we will have a welcome assembly. Dismissal on this first part day is at 11:02am.
  3. The first full day of school for grade 1-7 students will be Wednesday, September 4th. School begins at 8:10am and ends at 2:02pm.
  4. Kindergarten students have a gradual entry schedule outlined in the kindergarten information sheet provided to all families of kindergarten students.  The first full day of school for kindergarten students will be on Friday, September 13th, which is our Tuey Park whole school fieldtrip day.
  5. We kindly ask that you do not purchase school supplies.  Supplies are purchased by the school in order to ensure students have what they need according to teacher preference and planning.  Please access our newsletter for more information.  Our 2019-2020 school fee schedule can be found in the September 2019 newsletter to be sent home on September 4th.
