Please be sure students are dressed for the weather. They go outside
every day for play (as long as it is not raining).
Last week and
this week, students have and will be traveling to Fundy National Park for nature presentations that will enhance
science learning. Ask your child about this learning experience!
The first Home and School meeting will be Tuesday,
October 2nd at 6:30pm. All welcome!
notice from the Home and School Association was sent home last week.
The PSSC (Parent School Support Committee) is looking for new members. The PSSC is a school community
group that has an advisory relationship with the school principal. They meet approximately 5 times a year. If you would like to
know more about this role or would like to be a part of this committee, please
contact the school.
Safety is always a priority in schools! Please note:
For the safety and security of
the students, only the front door remains
open throughout the school day (except during early morning arrival
8:15-8:40 when the parking lot door is opened and supervised.)
A quick goodbye helps your child get right to school routines and
encourages the independence children need!
When entering the school during the day, all visitors are to check in at
the office. We are happy to help in any
way we can.
A reminder that supervision does not start until 8:15,
therefore students should not be arriving before this time.
As part of the school’s emergency plans, this past month
we have practiced fire drills and lockdown procedures. A lockdown
is used if there is the possibility of danger to students and
staff. This is done by moving
students to a safe location in the building. It is presented in a way that
does not promote fear, but rather a sense of security. During a lockdown
students will move to a safe place, close together with their teacher in
the classroom. Students wait quietly in this place for any needed
direction. Please see the reverse side of this newsletter for more
information about lockdowns. If you have any questions, please do not
hesitate to contact the school.
Please remember to use the
new district Safe Arrival
system when your child is absent from school. You can call the school (734-3700) and
follow the prompts to report the absence. More details were given in the
last newsletter. If you are
experiencing difficulties with this process, please call the school office
so we can assist.
Allergy Alert – Please remember, 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.
