School Closed May 24th Due to Power Outage

Due to this weekend’s storm, our school is currently without electricity. Because we cannot confirm that power will be available, the school will be closed tomorrow. On Tuesday, May 24, 2022, all students and staff members will learn and work remotely.  Asynchronous learning will be taking place for all classes. Please do not send your child to school on May 24, 2022.

Hydro is expected to be restored before Wednesday morning, and we look forward to having all students, and staff members back at school on May 25, 2022.

We recognize that this is inconvenient and may cause some disruption to your plans. We appreciate everyone’s support and cooperation. The safety of students and staff members is our first priority and we are taking all necessary measures.

If you have any questions, please contact the school.

Daily Screening Reminder

York Region Public Health strongly recommends that  all students, teachers, staff and visitors  wear a well-fitted three-layer mask in classrooms, common areas, including hallways, and while using school transportation.

“Students/attendees, staff and visitors must continue to complete the provincial COVID-19 school and child care screening tool every day before attending school or child care settings. Symptomatic individuals and their household members should follow the instructions on the screening tool for isolation requirements; parents must not send children to school or child care if they are showing any symptoms of COVID-19.”

Additional information about what to do if you have tested positive or been exposed to a positive case can also be found at  

School Yard Safety

Just a reminder that students should not arrive at school before 8:15 am.  There is no supervision before 8:15 am. 


Please ensure that your child(ren) come to school dressed appropriately for the weather.  Students should be wearing proper fitting shoes such as running shoes.  If it is sunny/hot, students should wear sunscreen, bring a hat, and have a water bottle that they could refill.  On cooler days students should have a light jacket or sweater.


Jumbo freezies will be sold for $2 every Friday to students in grades 1-8 at morning recess. Bring a Toonie for Freezie Fridays!

Families who do not want their child(ren) to be sent an invitation to participate in the survey may contact Research Services at no later than May 26, 2022.
