Hello MAS Families. We have had a great second week of
school. Students have really settled in, adjusted to routine changes, and seem
to be enjoying their day. There is lots of learning and fun echoing
through the school. This week students participated in a fire drill. The
students did an amazing job and moved quickly and quietly to our meeting zones
A few reminders/important notes:
Student Fees- Reminder that student fees are due. The cost
this year is $45. This can be paid online at SchoolCashOnline or send into the school.
If you need assistance, please contact Roxy to discuss options.
Virtual Open House- Our virtual Open House will be on
Wednesday, September 23rd starting at 6pm for grades ½
Belyea, ¾ Coes, and 5 McCabe and at 6:25pm grades ½ Davis and K Tingley.
Of course this year is different and this will all be done online.
Teachers will be sending you a Microsoft Teams Meeting Link. I ask that you
test this link prior to Wednesday’s meeting. All you need to do is click the
link- it will re-direct you to the meeting window. You will see a window asking
you to sign in with Microsoft account or underneath to join as a guest. Please
join as a guest. You should then be directed to the waiting room and it
will tell you someone will let you in. If you get this far, you will be good to
go for the parent meeting. If you run into any troubles, PLEASE reach out to me
and I can try and help you navigate into the meeting. If trying to access the
meeting on a phone or tablet, it is best to download the app first.
PSSC- CALLING ALL PARENTS- we are in need of
parents to join our PSSC. In order for us to have a PSSC group, we need two or
more members to join. For those that are not involved this is a wonderful
opportunity to be involved in your child’s education. The PSSC helps in
education decision making at the school level and shares ideas and input with
the Principal. Meetings are once a month, 5-6 times a year, for one hour. We
would love you join us! A pamphlet with more information will be coming home on
Recess/Weather- We have had some beautiful days to
start the year, but the cold and rain are coming. Please be sure your child is
dressed for the weather. We will be outside during recess time as much as
possible, unless the weather does not permit (heavy rain, cold temperatures,
etc). This means if it is drizzling out, windy, snowy, etc. we will be getting
outside for fresh air and free time. Please make sure your child comes prepared
with- coats, rain boots, hats, mittens, etc. It is also a good idea (no matter
the grade) to have a change of clothes in your child’s back pack or left in the
Not Feeling Well- A few reminders when your child is
not feeling well from public health-.

monitoring and COVID-19 testing. They do not need to isolate
at home while awaiting results if they just have one symptom.

be at school. They should not return to school until 24 hours post
