Heads Up

Welcome to Heads Up, your one-stop source for news about your son’s upcoming activities and events.

Message from Tanya Sweeney

Dear Prep families,

Thank you for your ongoing support and collaboration as we continue to work each day to offer a safe learning environment on campus and an engaging online experience for those learning at home. 

Thank you for a record response to our recent survey! We appreciate your thoughts and comments and will share the data with you in upcoming Heads Up articles as we make ongoing improvements to our programs and activities. Jyoti Seghal will be reaching out to families whose children are learning at home to have a personal conversation about the experience thus far and how it can be improved.

A reminder to our families that Halloween activities are planned for tomorrow – Friday, October 30. Please reach out to Gina Suva at the Health Centre if your child has recently discovered food allergies. Please ensure that any Y4-7 student’s costume includes a mask to meet COVID requirements.

A reminder that Wednesday, November 4, is an early dismissal day to enable Professional Development for our employees. After-School Programming is available for those who register ahead of time. Dismissal times are as follows and are also noted on sandwich boards on campus and in our family calendar:

  • SK to Year 2 | 11:50 a.m.
  • Year 3 to 5 | 12:00 p.m.
  • Year 6 to 7 | 12:15 p.m.

We are heading into week 7 of full school programming—here’s to another safe week ahead!
