Happy Friday Husky Families,

We have several announcements for you this week:

1) PSSC elections will take place at the school on Tuesday, September 21 at 6:00pm. Home & School elections will be on Wednesday, September 22 at 6:00 pm. If you would like to attend either meeting, please contact Sandra in the office to have your name added to the list. You must wear a mask and observe physical distancing for the duration of the meeting. The remainder of the PSSC and Home & School meetings will most likely be virtual.

2) Sandra requests that you please return your beginning of the year paperwork as soon as possible so student information can be updated.

3) Student fees can be paid online. If your student fees are paid prior to September 30th, you will receive 10 entries for the draw for a Samsung tablet which has been organized by PSSC and H&S. If your student fees are paid prior to October 28th, you will receive 1 entry. The draw will take place on October 29th. If there are financial concerns that impact your ability to pay student fees, please contact the office.

4) A reminder that our cafeteria is currently closed so there is no access to microwaves. We appreciate your understanding.

5) Our breakfast programs are back up and running again and our Farm to School lunch program will begin on Monday. You can purchase our Monday lunches online. We will not be accepting IOUs this year, so please be sure to purchase in advance. A big thanks to Marcy and our Culinary class for making this possible. Additional lunch programs will begin in October.

6) SRC are once again doing their coffee fundraiser. Please look for order forms coming home with your students. This fundraiser is usually a great success! All coffee orders will be due on October 1st.

7) As of right now our K-5 students will be heading to Hazen Cameron’s Family Apple Orchard this week. A 5 lb bag of apples is only 4$. Given the new restrictions just announced, it is possible that this trip may be cancelled. If the trip does proceed as planned, K-2 will be going on the 22nd and 3-5 on the 23rd. Please send in permission and money by Monday, September 20th. If the trip does take place and you hope to join your child or volunteer with the classroom teacher, you must show proof of being fully vaccinated prior to the trip and must wear your mask at all times. Let’s keep our Huskies safe!

8) We are hoping that our annual Terry Fox walk and run can still take place on the morning of Friday, September 24th. We will keep you posted once we receive more guidance from the Department of Education regarding specific activities that will be permitted to continue. September the 24th will also be our whole-school half-day for the month.

9) On September 30th we will be recognizing the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. We ask that all of our Huskies wear orange to school that day.

10) Public Health will be holding a Covid immunization clinics here at school for staff and eligible students (12+) on September 23rd and October 21st. Parents can complete consent forms on the day of the clinic, or ahead of time by visiting the Government of New Brunswick website.

11) A note to students that are eligible for vaccination that they must be fully vaccinated in order to take part in school sports and various other after school activities.

12) K-8 students will once again be returning to classroom bubbles while inside the building as of Monday morning. More clarification is currently being sought concerning recess outdoors.

Thanks for a wonderful week, Huskies! We appreciate your continued flexibility as changes regarding the school year begin to unfold once again.

We can't wait to see you all again on Monday!

Mrs. Bruijns
