  Allergy Alert – HES is a nut free school as we have some students with severe allergies to nuts.  Thank you for helping ensure our students are safe by not sending food with nut products.


·         School supplies for students have been purchased by the school.  Payment can be made to your child’s teacher or on-line through the district website (School Cash On-line) given above. The fee for all students is $30. The Home and School Association has covered the cost of agendas. Thank you.

·         Having indoor sneakers is important for all students. This helps keep our classrooms clean.

·         For the safety and security of the students, only the front door will remain open throughout the school day (except during early morning arrival when there is teacher supervision.)  When entering the school during the day, please check in at the office.  We are happy to help in any way we can.

·         We also ask, when picking up your child, that you wait in the lobby/office area of the school.  This will help our children gain their independence and be able to attend to their regular routine. If at any time you need to speak with your child’s teacher, please write a note in the agenda the evening before, or check in at the main office and we can notify the teacher to come and speak with you when classes are not in session.


This year our school guidance counsellor for K-5 is Ms. Bamford. She will be at the school on Wednesdays and Fridays.  As per our provincial mandate, all students will receive proactive whole class counselling lessons at various times during the school year.  School counselling support is also delivered in small groups and for individuals, both with parent/guardian consent.  If you would like to speak with Ms. Bamford, please feel free to contact the school (734-3700).
