Dear Earl Haig PS Parents/Guardians,

Welcome back to our Earl Haig families and a warm welcome to the new families joining us.  Our staff and caretakers have been busily preparing our school and classrooms in anticipation of the 2013-2014 school year.  We look forward to working in partnership with you to support your child’s learning journey.   Our staff will be out to welcome you on the school yard with their class lists at 8:55 am for entry.  If it is raining, Gr.1-8 students will be invited down to the lunchroom.  Students would have had their classroom numbers appear on their June report.   Yard supervision begins at 8:40 am for Grades 1-8.

Please have your child bring their own lunch, drinks (water bottle) and snacks to school for the first week.  We are an Eco school that encourages Litterless Lunches.  We also have students with serious Anaphylactic allergies to nuts and nut products.  Please assist us in helping to keep our school nut free.  Our lunchroom program (Gr.1-8) and K snack program will commence on Monday September 9, 2013 for those families that are interested.

Kindergarten Families: Our Kindergarten team will be out to meet you and your child at 8:55am on the north west end of the school. In the case of rain, families may come in the front doors at 8:55am and gather outside the K classes at that time. A reminder that parents are required to supervise their K children until entry pick-up at 8:55 am.  Mr. Boyd and Ms. Diez will be dismissing their classes at the front of the school and Ms. Dew will be using the door closest to her class Door 1C. Ms. Roknic’s class will be using Door 2 for dismissal on the south side of the school.

We have placed our K classes in the following rooms in order to be prepared to receive and welcome your children in anticipation of our new wing:

Mr. Boyd with Ms. Campbell-Merriam     Room 10      Lunch Supervisor-Ms. Khan
