Important Information for Returning to In-Person Learning

We hope that you are as excited as we are!

  • It is very important that students, or a parent/guardian on behalf of a student completes the daily COVID screener every day before coming to school.
    • https://covid-19.ontario.ca/school-screening/
    • During the first two weeks of school – from September 7th through 17th, the Ministry of Education is requiring that students confirm their daily COVID-19 self-screening upon arrival at school.
    • For students in grades 4 through 12, they will provide their confirmation of self-screening verbally to their teacher.  For parents/guardians of students in Kindergarten through Grade 3, parents/guardians must complete and sign a form for each child and return it to school daily.
  • Masks are mandatory for students in grades 1 through 12.  Extra masks are very handy so that students can swap them out if they become soiled.  Please no buffs or gators. We have extras on hand if needed.
  • Students will wear their masks inside, but may remove for outside play.
  • Physical distancing is still a must.  This means that our classrooms are set up to promote physical distancing, and there are many routines in place, such as physically distanced line ups, staggered hallway travel, visual cues such as markers on the floor and signs.
  • Hand hygiene and respiratory etiquette play a very significant role in keeping all of us healthy and safe.  Students will be washing their hands or using hand sanitizer multiple times throughout the day - - upon entry, before and after using shared items, such as a playground ball, before and after eating, before and after the washroom, before and after recess play and at the end of the day.
  • When inside, students remain with their cohort, and physically distance within the cohort.
  • When outside, students must continue to physically distance.


Other Important Considerations

  • If your child walks to school, please talk with them about arriving between 8:40 and 8:50. Remind them to line up on the sidewalk before our driveway ( 6’/2m apart)
  • No students are to be dropped off in the bus loop. Please use the Optimist driveway loop.  Staff will be there to meet the students
  • Students assemble in front of their new teacher with their class upon arrival – Front entrance – 4-8, Back entrance K-3.  Lots of adults will be on hand to help!
  • All bus changes must be communicated to the office prior to 2:30 – call the main office (519) 334-3640 ext 100 or by send a note to school.


Looking forward to seeing all our students Tuesday September 7, 2021!
