Outerwear Lending Library Details

We’ve had some questions about how the Outerwear Library will work and thought we’d share some more info on that — as well as a plea for more contributions! Our donation week wraps up tomorrow and we are still low on items.

Donations won’t be accepted after this week so that all contributions can be left untouched for 7 days to minimize any risk of Covid-19 transmission. After that, all items will be sorted and brought to the Music Room and arranged for easy handling and left untouched for another 7 days. Once the Outerwear Lending Library is in operation, teachers will be able to access it from an exterior door as needed.

Items from the Lending Library can be borrowed for the short-term or indefinitely. Any items returned back to the Lending Library should be washed and bagged and will be isolated for 7 days before put back into circulation.

Now comes the ask…. do you have any new or gently used (and CLEAN) items that you can donate? We are really hoping to have a good selection of items and sizes to ensure none of our Earl Haig students are left cold or wet during outdoor learning. Please drop donations off to the front door of 89 Hanson Street by the end of this week. ** Larger sizes (grades 3-8) are most needed **

For any families that would like to make use of our (free!) Outerwear Lending Library, please email us or contact Acting Principal Upeslacis or Vice Principal Landry.

Virtual school families connect (virtually, of course!)

Are any of the Earl Haig students in your life doing virtual learning this year? Connect with other families to help navigate this unprecedented school year in a Facebook group organized by the SAC’s Virtual Class Rep, Jen Barnes.

If you’re not on Facebook but would still like to be connected to Earl Haig virtual school families, please send Jen an email and she can keep you in the loop.

Donations for Our Outerwear Lending Library

We’ve had a great run of weather this fall, but it looks like that forecast is starting to change. With rain for most of this week and temperatures starting to drop, let’s help keep our EH students’ spirits high by keeping them dry and warm this fall/winter.

Can you donate new or gently used (and CLEAN) items to our parent/caregiver led Outerwear Lending Library? We are looking for rain pants, snow pants, coats, and all the accessories needed to keep kids warm while they have extended time outdoors this year. Donations can be dropped off to a bin by the front door of 89 Hanson Street this week (October 19-23). ** Larger sizes (grades 3-8) are most needed **

For any families that would like to make use of our (free!) Outerwear Lending Library, please email us or contact Acting Principal Upeslacis or Vice Principal Landry.
