Bussing Safety Note–if your child is in grade 3-5 and take the bus, please meet them at the stop after school or write a note for the school and the driver stating that you give permission for your child to walk home from the stop. Otherwise, if an adult is not at the stop, just as with K-2, the driver will need to bring them back to the school. Safety first!
Masks – A reminder that students need to have 2 clean masks for school every day, one of those being in your child’s book bag as the extra one) We have been going through a number of masks on our part for students who may have forgotten theirs (and we all forget things from time to time, so we do understand ) . Thank you for your help.

We will once again be participating in our annual Creeker Trick or Eat Food Challenge. This is especially worthy this year as we know more families in the greater Fredericton area may need support. Families will be encouraged to drop off specific food items for the food bank throughout the weeks of October 30 – More to come on this . Thank you for your support as we move forward.
