PJ DAY THIS THURSDAY

Pajama Day on Thursday November 26th!

DRESS FOR THE WEATHER

As we head into our wet and cold months please dress your student(s) appropriately for the weather. We always make it a priority to send the children outside in most weather conditions. ALL students need a waterproof coat, boots or a change of shoes and it is helpful for them to have a change of clothes in the classroom or in their backpack.

MASK REMINDER

Thank you to all families for supporting John Stubbs’ efforts in following COVID-19 protocols. By wearing masks, you are helping to keep our students, staff and families as safe as possible. If we as a community are to limit the spread of COVID-19, we all need to make sure we are doing our part by wearing masks and socially distancing while dropping-off and picking up your child(ren) before and after school. Thank you for helping us keep the John Stubbs Community safe by doing your part!

PICK UP REMINDER

Please note that some teachers are required to lead their class through the courtyard up to the field each day after school. We ask that you help them get there safely by social distancing and making plenty of space for the class to pass by.
