We will also continue with our gradual entry program for kindergarten students (parents of kindergarten students have been contacted by Mr. Weeks.

School readiness
Our school facilities are in good condition. Our operations crew worked over the summer to prepare our buildings for the new school year – floors are polished, equipment is upgraded and classrooms have been cleaned.

Moving forward
We are very happy to welcome our students and staff back to school. We would like to acknowledge this has been a very difficult time for all of our teachers, students and families. As we begin a new school year, teachers and your school will continue to need your support and involvement in order for us to be able to provide the best possible education for your child.
