ORANGE SHIRT DAY

Orange shirt day is on Wednesday September 30th. Orange Shirt Day is an event, created in 2013, designed to educate people and promote awareness in Canada about the Indian residential school system and the impact it has had on Indigenous communities for over a century – an impact that continues today. It is held annually on September 30 in Canadian communities, especially in schools with students and staff, where people are encouraged to wear an orange shirt.  (Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orange_Shirt_Day)

DAILY HEALTH CHECKLIST

Parents/Guardians are required to assess their child(ren) for symptoms of COVID-19 daily prior to sending them to school.

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION

  • If your child has a sniffle and / or a cough that is not part of their normal, then please keep them home for two or three days. This will allow you to see how things develop.
  • If the cough is normal to the child, such as an asthma issue or a seasonal allergy, please inform your class teacher of this so that they know what to expect.
  • Thank you for your support as we all figure this out.

PARENT HANDBOOK

Our Parent Handbook has some updates, please review the changes that are highlighted in yellow. Parent Handbook.

SCHOOL SUPPLIES – PLEASE PAY FOR THE SCHOOL SUPPLIES IF YOU HAVEN’T YET.

Some families have not yet paid for the school supplies that were purchased in bulk by the school in order to save you expenses. It is cheaper this way. Please use this link to help you understand and to pay. http://johnstubbs.web.sd62.bc.ca/parents/school-supply-list/ . If your family is struggling to cover this cost, please contact Mme Szalipszki (sszalipszki@sd62.bc.ca) and she will be able to help you.

KISS AND DROP – IT’S GOING REALLY WELL! THANKS!

Make it quick and make is safe!
Reminders:

  • Your children need to get out of the car independently and quickly
  • Your children need to get out of the passenger side of the car. You may need to reconfigure the way you seat your children in the car so that they can get out quickly. This is the safest side to use.
  • Your children need to be able to open and close the door themselves.

This isn’t the place for a hug goodbye, do that at home before you leave home! If you need a hug goodbye, don’t use the kiss and drop. Park somewhere else instead.

GRADE 1 AND 2 PARENTS:

  • While you’re dropping off your child at school, please use physical distancing. This is important for us all!
  • Please leave promptly. Encourage your child to be independent. There is supervision outside, your child is safe with us!
  • If you need to be on the property, please wear a mask to keep our staff safe. This helps us all feel safe.
  • Thanks for your cooperation in keeping each other, our children and our staff safe!

NOT RECEIVING EMAILS FROM THE BOARD OFFICE?

We are aware that some families receive emails from John Stubbs but are not receiving emails from the School Board Office. Our email administrator has reviewed the process logs coming out of MyEd and we can confirm there is no delay in emails leaving the application. This issue is external to MyEd. On the third party side, it appears one or more servers handling Hotmail and/or Outlook traffic has different processing rules applied.

We have logged a ticket with Microsoft identifying this issue. We also encourage end-users to log their own tickets, allowing Microsoft to identify patterns of behavior.

Sept 10 message to families

Bonjour John Stubbs Community (In-school and Remote Learning)

Our first day has gone very smoothly! Thank you to EVERYONE who used the new ‘Kiss and drop’ and who parked further from the building so that our younger students could park closer. Thank you to our PAC members Melissa and Alison for helping parents at the kiss and drop.  What our staff saw today was our family community pulling together to keep everyone safe.  Un grand MERCI!

The parent handbook has been updated. It will continue to be updates as we see what needs to be communicated more clearly, or if we have to add some details to clarify. Updates will be highlighted to that you can find them easily. This is a live document, so we will edit it as we go along in the school year. Remember to check it every week!

Here is the LINK to the handbook. Save it for future use!

Here is what has been added this week:

REMOTE LEARNERS:  During the month of September, you will continue to get messages for your child’s official teacher. This is so that you can follow what is happening should you wish to change your mind.

Kiss and Drop. – STAY IN THE LINE until the exit so that there is less chance of accidents.

Staggered Departure Times (end of day) 

To limit the number of people in our hallways, as well as on our sidewalks and playgrounds, we have a plan for the end of day pick up.

The departure group schedule are as follows:

  • 2:30 = Siblings Grade 3 to 8 siblings pick up younger siblings (including KG) at their classroom to go to the bus line up or leave the property to meet their ride home parked in your pre-arranged place.
  • Grade 2 to Kindergarten siblings Children leave with the rest of their class at the time below.
  • 2:35 = KG and Gr 2
  • 2:40 = Gr 1, 4, and 6
  • 2:45 = Gr 3 and 7
  • 2:50 = Gr 5 and 8

END OF THE DAY PROCEDURES

Meeting Zones (Zones de rendez-vous)

Map of Meeting Zones

  • These are where children go when they arrive at school in the morning.
  • These are also where they go at the end of the day to leave school.
  • Please know that the classes on the field may be moved to other locations as we adapt to the weather.

Kindergarten to grade 2

  • Caregivers are able to enter the school property to where their child is lined up. Please leave promptly, please don’t linger, once you have your child(ren). We ask that you teach them to be independent and learn to walk to their meeting spot by themselves in the morning.
  • At the end of the day, you can enter the property so that the teacher knows you are there to hand the child to. Then leave promptly.
