I hope everyone will spend some family time during Spring Break. With all the technology accessible to our children today, it is still important for families to play a board game, take a trip to the museum, or plan a crafts day together. Have some fun outdoors! An important part of being comfortable in school is to have dry clothing (shoes, socks, etc.). Please ensure your children are dressed appropriately for the wet weather. As well, the use of plastic bags for homework will keep books and paperwork nice and dry. We will be practicing fire drills and safety measures from our Crisis Response Plan this month. This will include fire drills and lockdown drills which prepare us for emergencies within or around the school. This will prepare the school for all emergency situations if they should arise. Please do not drop off children at the intersection (4-way stop)/corner of the Sherburn and Grundy as this poses a serious safety hazard for the children including those crossing. Please park in available spaces on Sherburn Street to drop off your children. Have a wonderful Spring Break! School reopens April 4th. Kind Regards, L. Pang
