January 7 - News Update
Welcome back students and parents we hope you enjoyed your time with your family and loved ones over the holiday season. We look forward to starting off 2019 in the best way possible and are excited to see all those smiling faces in our halls once again.
Starting January 21st the attendance calls will be coming home via School Messenger. This is an automated call out system that is being used by schools in Parkland School Division. It is the same system that is used by transportation if you have received calls regarding late or cancelled busses. The messages will come directly to all numbers listed on your child’s primary contact information, if not answered other numbers will be contacted. If you need to change that information please contact the school before the 21st.
Utilizing this system will allow attendance calls to be received in a more timely fashion and will help to increase safety and efficient communication with parents. As always, it is very helpful if you child is going to be away to notify the school by phoning or emailing email@example.com as soon as you are sure of the absence. This will help to reduce the number of calls you may receive as well as preventing non-primary numbers from being contacted if the primary number is not answered.
Additionally School Messenger allows us to send emails to the address that you provide to the school. We will be beginning to use the Messenger system to contact parent/guardians regarding other important items as well as continuing to provide those items on the website and on social media.
If you have any questions about this process, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
There will be no meeting in January for the School Council or Fundraising Society. We look forward to the next meeting on February 12.
The online system is now open for February hot lunch orders. The deadline for orders and payments is Monday, January 21st.
Just a reminder that we now only accept payment online through Paypal. You can pay via credit card as a "guest" using Paypal if you don't have a Paypal account.
