Special notes:

  • The office tries to be as accommodating as possible to parents, however with the demands in the busy office we are finding ourselves spending most of our time searching for students to pass on messages and arrange pick up.  If you have to sign out your child during school hours, please either come into the office and sign out your child or send a note with them so they can sign out themselves.  Office staff will no longer call students down and send them outside to meet parents picking them up. If you have a message for your child, office staff will take the message and put the students name on the message board outside of the office.  They will be called during break and lunch, office staff will not be interrupting class time for messages. Please remind your child to always check the message board. Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.
  • Dare to Care Parent Session – Thursday November 9th 7:00 – 9:30 pm. This is a bully proofing sessions for parents. Please call to register (403) 777-7190 to register. There is free babysitting if required. Please indicate if babysitting is needed when registering. There are limit seats so please call early.
  •  If your child is sick or not feeling well, please keep them at home until they are feeling better. Sending your child to school when they have a fever, coughing or throwing up is not a good plan. In fact they make the other children sick as well as the teachers. Last Wednesday we had 65 students at home sick and 9 teachers away. Also a good precaution is to send non-alcohol hand sanitizers with your child to school. There are hand sanitizers throughout the school as well. Please remind your child about proper coughing into the elbow technique to prevent the spread of germs.
  •  If your child rides the Calgary Transit Bus please be aware that we have no control or information regarding  their lateness in bad weather conditions. Please make sure that you have a backup plan if the busses arrive late. There are very rare occasions when a bus doesn’t show up. It will come, but late given poor road conditions. Calling the school will not be helpful. You could check the Calgary Transit website: http://www.calgarytransit.com/ or call  403-262-1000.
  •  With this cold weather please make sure your child has the proper clothing which includes items to cover their ears and hands along with a warm coat. Student go outside at lunch for 10-15 minutes unless it is colder than -20 degrees or it is snowing or raining heavily.
  • When picking up your child after school please do not park in the Bus Zone north of the school. If you park there you can receive a fine from the City Police or Calgary Transit.
  • Again, another reminder NOT to drop off your child or enter the school parking lot unless during school hours after 9:00 AM  or before 3:00 PM. This morning we had numerous parents dropping off their children in the school parking lot. Safety over Convenience Please!
