Fall is here!
A Message from the Principal
The wet weather has arrived and with that our school yard is full of puddles. Please send appropriate outdoor wear as classes often will go outside for mask breaks and outdoor learning even on days when it is wet outside. Please be sure to label all belongings as we cannot keep a lost and found of mixed belongings at the school.
Walking and Running with Terry Fox
Over two-weeks students at the school walked and ran around a designated track at the school with their cohort. As a school community we completed 2,912 KMs. To reward their efforts the school will be providing some new wall balls (red, white & blue stripe) and new tether balls for the poles to be used within their cohort. Thank you to our community who raised $600 surpassing our total from last year. Special thanks goes to our Jarvis Jets class for planning, organizing and collecting all the totals.
Until further notice visitor access to all Grand Erie sites including Jarvis school will be restricted to essential visitors. An essential visitor is defined as board staff, police/fire services, health, building and maintenance.
If you are bringing in something for your child, please buzz the door and office staff will come out to pick it up. If your child is coming in late or leaving early the office staff will note this in the book. Parents are not able to be in the school at this time.
Entry, Dismissal and Lates
Please note that routines of previous years have changed due to safety restrictions.
There will be no morning or afterschool recess.
Please do not enter the yard before 8:50am and please pick up children promptly at 3:10pm.
Please do not linger on the school property for conversation. We would ask that you please make an appointment with the teacher to speak to them rather than upon pick up or entry.
Child Nutrition Program
Our nutrition program has begun two days per week. This program looks different this year due to COVID 19 restrictions. The program is a ‘Grab and Go’ program with individually wrapped items. Barb helps to deliver the snack boxes to classrooms when students are not in the building and the educator in the room helps to safely distribute the food after hand washing/rubbing. We look forward to building up this program again as health and safety guidelines allow.
The Province is mandating non-medical cloth masks for all students in Grades 4-12 , while encouraging the use of non-medical cloth masks for students in Kindergarten through Grade 3.
