Reminders About Proper Dress for Recess

Good Morning Cardinals!

It is time once again to start our annual reminders about proper dress for recess – especially this year!

Please know that we will be following our board policies, as we always do, with regards to temperature and indoor recesses.  The change this year, is that we WILL BE OUTSIDE if there is a light mist or drizzle happening.  We are asking that you take some time this week to dig deep in the mitten box and get some mitts, a tuque, a warm coat, and even an umbrella.  Outside time is so important to provide our students with an opportunity to run, and to have a “mask break”.  PLEASE DRESS FOR THE WEATHER CARDINALS!

If it happens to be raining in the morning, please arrive at school as close to the bell as possible 8:45 am is a perfect time to arrive!  8:35 am is less than ideal. There is NO supervision prior to 8:35 am so students should not be on the property for safety reasons.

In the office, our staff is getting our mitts and hats ready right now, so we don’t forget!  You should do the same!

Have a great week!

Please Do Not Come to the School to Drop Off Items

A friendly reminder to make sure that you are sending your children to school with everything that they will need for the day.

This includes:

  1. Appropriate clothing for the weather.

  2. A few masks for the day – if you forget these, we will supply the child(ren) with enough for the day.

  3. Reusable water bottle, lunch and snacks – if you forget these, we will provide the child(ren) with snacks and a water bottle for the day.


In effort to stop the spread of COVID-19 we are limiting the number of visitors coming to the school. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
