SPECIAL BIRTHDAYS OR HOLIDAY TREAT UPDATE
Many parents are wondering about birthdays, holiday treats or class gifts. We will continue to allow commercially prepared food and hot lunches (as they are prepared with Food Safe protocols). We have been using a non-contact/touchless way for students to celebrate Valentines and Friendship week, which began February 14th and culminates on February 23rd (with our Kindness Colour Day). Please notify your child’s classroom teacher in advance for birthdays as no treats will be accepted at the office. Thank you for your understanding, and again, let us continue to work together to ensure the safety of everyone!
