Thank You To All Parents/Caregivers!

On behalf of all our staff, thank you to all of our parents/caregivers for your response and cooperation during our evacuation today.  PLEASE NOTE that there will be school on Thursday. Please take a moment to read the information provided by the Public Schools Branch regarding dealing with today’s events. Click here for the link.

Just a reminder that there is no school on Friday, September 23rd, as it a Professional Learning Day for school staff.

Don’t forget to attend the pancake breakfast being held at the Stratford Town Hall on Saturday, September 24th from 7:30 – 11:00 in support of the Glen Stewart Primary and Stratford Elementary breakfast programs.  If you pre-purchased tickets from the school, they will be sent home with your child on Thursday.

 

School Starts September 6th!

We are excited to welcome all returning and new students to school on Tuesday, September 6th!  Just a friendly reminder to all about a few things concerning school start-up:

  • So that students will know which class to report to on September 6th, all K-3 teachers will contact parents of their new students by telephone sometime after September 1st and before September 5th to introduce themselves and welcome students back to school. If parents cannot be reached directly, teachers will leave the information on voicemail.
  • Kindergarten students are to be brought to school on September 6th for 9 a.m. Kindergarten students should NOT travel on the school bus the first morning. Parents or caregivers will be asked to verify transportation arrangements after drop-off that morning.  Kindergarten children who travel on a school bus will be able to travel to their after school destinations on September 6th.  For parents/caregivers who are picking their children up after school, please meet them in the lobby.  School dismisses at 2:35.
  • Your child will come home with several printed pieces of information on the first day of school.  For forms that need to be returned, we thank you in advance for filling them out promptly and returning them with your child no later than September 9th.
  • Our breakfast and hot lunch programs will start the week of September 12th.
  • Thank-you for remembering that we are a peanut-and nut-free facility as we have students and staff who have life-threatening allergies to items that contain these substances.

Have a Fun and Safe Summer!

Thank-you to all of our families for supporting your child’s learning during this school year, your involvement makes a difference!  We wish all of our students and their families a wonderful summer filled with lots of time together doing the things you love to do. . . see you in September!
