Parkview Happenings…

Pink Shirt Day will be celebrated on Feb. 26th at Parkview as our monthly spirit day. Students and Staff are encouraged to wear PINK this Tuesday in order to stand up against bullying. Students will also earn points for their colour house. Student social cabinet and A/V cabinet will come around to classes mid-morning to tally points and take pictures for the spirit day. You can also earn points by wearing your Parkview colour house bracelet.

Note to all Primary Families: Take home books for K-3 will not be going home for the next couple of weeks because we are in the process of doing an inventory so that we can add new books to classroom collections.

Thank you to all parents that joined us for our Parent Tea.

A gentle reminder to all families that the instructional day begins @ 8:30am and that supervision begins @ 8:15am. We ask any students that arrive at school after 8:30am to please report to the office. We ask all parents / guardians to notify the office of any changes in dismissal routines.

School bus service may be cancelled due to inclement weather, extreme temperatures and/or poor road conditions. A bus cancellation message will be available at School Bus City, or by calling 1-877-330-3001, or by following @YRDSB on Twitter. When buses are cancelled, the delivery of school lunches will be canceled and rescheduled for another day. Students will need to bring a lunch on those days.

The City of Markham has made some changes to the traffic signs around our school to support safety. Please remember that children should not be crossing the street in front of the school. Parents can support us to avoid congestion in the bus loop with the following actions: Drive as far as you can in the bus loop; Saying goodbye before you get to the school and not exiting your car; Have your child exit on the side of the school; and do not overtake cars in the bus loop. Reminder that student supervision begins @ 8:15am – students cannot be dropped at and left on their own prior to 8:15am.
