Welcome Back!  New staggered entry for all students

Good Evening

We hope this talk mail finds everyone well.  We are very excited to see everyone next week.  Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we are modifying our first week of school.  In order to have a safe and stress-free entry, please be advised that all students will have a staggered entry.  This applies only to students in Grade 1-5.  Kindergarten teachers have already contacted families regarding start dates.    All students with last names starting from A-I will come to school Tuesday, September 8th, students with last names J-M will come on Wednesday, September 9th, and students whose last name starts with N-Z will come on Thursday, September 10th.  Regular classes will commence on Friday, September 11th  for all students except those on Individualized Learning Plans (PLPs).  Following the EECD Return to School document we respectfully ask that parents not enter the building.This week teachers will call to introduce themselves and provide you with details regarding where you can drop off and pick up your children.  This is being done in order to reduce congestion and ensure the student groupings are respected. A Covid-19 operational plan will be posted on our school’s website on Wednesday, September 3rd.  The plan will include communication protocols for parents and the school community.   Please take the time to read through it and contact the school with any concerns or questions. Drop in or unplanned visits by parents and guardians will be limited and not encouraged.  Please make an appointment if you need to speak to a teacher or to administration.  Virtual or phone contact will be the primary method of communication and face to face meetings will follow Department of Health directives. All students are required to wear a mask when entering the building; however, not required to wear them in the classroom. All visitor are asked to wear a mask

We are excited to welcome all of you back.  We look forward to meeting our new EPS families.

Have a good evening,

EPS staff
