  • 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!

ABSENCES

If your child is going to be absent from school please email johnstubbs@sd62.bc.ca with the date, student’s name and grade in the subject line of the email.

LATE STUDENTS

All late students or students returning to school from an appointment, please have them go straight to their classroom. The teacher will call the office to notify us of their arrival.

To excuse you student’s late please email johnstubbs@sd62.bc.ca please make sure your students name and grade are in the email.

EARLY PICK UPS
