Please see the following email, shared earlier this evening:
Thank you once again for your patience as we work together to adjust to these changes. Today Snicket and I read, "Jamie O'Rourke and the Big Potato" by Tomie dePaola (one of Ms. Barrington's favourite authors) in honour of St. Patrick's Day. I also have an update for all of you about collecting students belongings.
We understand that at this uncertain time, it may provide comfort for your child(ren) to have their personal belongings with them at home. We are making arrangements to allow families to pick up their own child(ren)'s personal items that may have been left here at the school. Please understand that we are required to limit the number of people in the building at a time and we thank you in advance for your patience, if you are asked to wait when you arrive.
Below are the designated times for personal item retrieval based on family last name:
For family names beginning with letters A to J: Pick up will occur on Thursday March 19th between the hours of 10am and 1:30pm.
For family names beginning with letters K to Z: Pick up will occur on Friday March 20th between the hours of 10am and 1:30pm.
**If you are unable to attend during these designated times, please contact the school to make arrangements to pick up personal belongings next week.
Please know that there is no requirement to retrieve personal belongings. We are providing this as an option for families should they like to do so. No materials that belong to the school (textbooks or technology) will be permitted to be taken home at this time. It is also important to note that family members who are unwell (displaying flu/cold symptoms) should not be visiting the school to pick up personal items.
We hope you are keeping well and taking care of yourselves. It is our commitment to continue to provide you with the most up to date information we can as we work through what these class cancellations mean for our school division, and you, our CG families. Without a doubt, there will be more information to come,
- Ashley Barrington, Grade 3 Teacher
