Friendly Reminders and Notices:

Safe Arrival Reminder
For Elementary Parents
, if you know your child will be absent or late to school, please call 462-8346 and leave your childís name, teachers name and reason for their absence/lateness.  If you do not call in, a volunteer will be calling you to confirm where your child is. Junior High Parents are asked to call the main office to report any absences from school (462-8340).


After School Plans
If your child has a change in after school plans they must bring a note from home.  (After school plans should be made the night before). 

Parents and guardians are reminded to not come into the lower paved area of the school grounds during bus arrivals and departures.  Please - drop your child off in the upper parking turn lane to ensure they arrive safely.

School Volunteers
The HRSB Student Protection Policy is now fully implemented. All individuals who wish to volunteer in the school (including chaperoning class trips) must complete Police Records and Child Abuse Registry Checks before being able to do volunteer work in our schools. For more details visit the HRSB website at www.hrsb.ns.ca. This is something you may wish to do in preparation for the new school year.

Please fill out the Child abuse form (link below) and send to the address listed on the form (takes approximately 4-6 weeks to process).  Police check forms are available at the local RCMP office for a fee. Once both forms are returned to you, please bring them into the school so we may have a copy on file.

Additional Information:

Storm Cancellations
For Elementary Students
: For your childís safety please remember to send in the School Cancellation Form that was sent home earlier this year. The school will call every childís home or contact number before we dismiss them. If we canít get in touch with anyone we will keep the child here at the school. This isnít what most people want as we want the children to be off the roads, to go home or go to the caregiverís where it is safe. Please be reminded that the school closes once the children are sent home and all students remaining must be picked up as soon as possible and in extreme cases no later than 2:30 on storm days.

For Junior High Students: unless otherwise notified we will assume your child will go home on the bus as usual.
