Criminal Record Checks

September 24th, 2019

I was reminded today as I re-read through our Fieldtrip Policy that all parents and Grandparents who wish to come with us on our fieldtrips must have a valid criminal record check. We have lots of fun fieldtrips planned for Grade One and you might want to come along! Here is some info that you may find helpful:

  • If you did a criminal record check for your child when they were in Kindergarten, it will still be valid. Criminal record checks are valid for two years.
  • If you do not know when your criminal record check expires or if you have one, the office can look it up for you.
  • If you need to have one completed, please email the office and they will prepare a letter for you to drop off at the police station. There is no cost to you.
  • If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Orange Shirt Day

September 23rd, 2019

On Monday, September 30th, we will be celebrating Orange Shirt Day K-12. Students are welcome to wear casual bottoms and orange tops. If you do not have an orange shirt, uniforms are always an option. We will not be going in depth into the deep topics surrounding residential schools with our smallest students. The aim of the day is inclusiveness, support for our First Nations students and a focus on “every student matters.”
