Voicemail for Friday September 7

Friday Night message:

·        As I mentioned on Open House Night, we were filled to our maximum numbers in terms of class size and in some cases over.  We never know of how many students are coming into the school and who has moved to elsewhere to other schools.  District has looked at our current numbers and has given us a new teacher.  A new teacher means that we will be moving a few students around in order to reduce numbers in a few classes.  I hope you will be supportive and while I do not like making these calls, I have to.  It is not my decision in many cases.  

·       ​We are an allergy aware school.  We ask that you are conscious when packing student lunches that contain tree nuts and peanuts.  We have students with severe allergies to both of those. We do also have latex allergies and also need to be aware of that as well as wearing strong scents in the building.

·       Public Health Nurses are coming to the school to look through our immunization records.  Letters were sent out to remind some parents in the spring if the records were not complete.


·       Students can not be dropped off before 8:05 in the morning.  There are no teachers on duty until 8:05.


·       Buses heading to Welsford area….I have been given the following information. 

In the morning: RVMS students will be going on bus 347 as well as those students on Cochrane Lane.  Other Westfield Students will be taking 508. 

In the afternoon – Dwain on 386 will be taking his usual runs although we have arranged for a couple of students to return home on 508.  Those parents have been contacted.


·       If you have paid on Cashless Schools, there was a glitch and you might get a message saying you need to pay….disregard it if you already have your receipt.  Thanks for using School Cash Online.


·       We will be doing a Terry Fox Walk here at the school at the end of the month on September 26 if weather cooperates.  If you would like to send a Toonie for Terry into Mrs. Kidney for that cause, she will be collecting them and will forward donations onto the Terry Fox Foundation.

     The community Terry Fox Run is happening as well:

At the River Valley Track in Grand Bay Westfield

September 15th 2019 from 1pm-3pm
