Eye See Eye Learn – provides comprehensive eye exams by local optometrists (or eye doctors) to junior kindergarten students in participating school regions. The eye exams are covered under provincial health insurance (or OHIP) when you show your child’s health card. This means that there is no out-of-pocket cost for the eye exam. If your child requires a pair of glasses, they will receive them FREE of charge courtesy of the participating sponsors.optometrist.pdf

Kindergarten Registration – Do you have a child born in 2014? Or a child born in 2013, who is currently NOT registered in school? If so please call us to set up an appointment to register your child for kindergarten for September 2018!

Financial Assistance – A reminder that we are here to assist any families who may need financial assistance with planner, field trips of other costs related to school.

Nutrition Break – Please make sure to pack spoons or forks, as needed, in your child’s lunchbox, as the school does not generally supply these for students.

SAFETY CONCERN – The school provides supervision from 9:05-9:20 a.m. every morning. Please make sure that you are able to stay with your child until that supervision begins, should you choose to arrive prior to that time. INCLEMENT WEATHER: Parents should drop their child off at the gym doors at the rear school, beginning at 9:05 a.m., and supervision will be offered in the gym. Kindergarten students should be dropped at their regular drop-off doors at 9:05 a.m., and supervision will take place in Kindergarten rooms.

Reminder – Parents are to say good-bye to their child/ren outside the school doors, in order to ensure safety in the school. However, if your child is late, you should accompany them to the office, through the front doors, to sign them in.

Food Reminders – New Food and Beverage Standards.  At Elgin St., we are encouraging parents to read the synopsis, and help support the standards when planning to send food to school for special celebrations, such as birthday parties. We do want to celebrate with your child, but are inviting you to think of special non-food treats such as sparkly pencils or stickers if you want to send something for classmates. NS_fact_sheet_ENG_final

Allergen Reminders – Our school is a fragrant sensitive environment. Please refrain from wearing any perfumed products in the school.  Please be careful when sending in your child’s lunch to ensure that any product that contains peanuts or could contain nut products stay at home.

No Dogs on Property

However we are asking you to be considerate of the safety of children at school and request that you please leave your dogs at home when coming to school, or stop at the edge of the property if you have chosen to walk your dog. We have had a number of issues with dogs this year, and they have created some unsafe situations. “No Dogs on Property” signs are posted and will be reinforced by staff and the administration of the school.
