TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 5TH
-Staff will be outside on the tarmac (back of the school) at 8:50 am wearing brightly coloured vests.
-Grades will be posted on signs (Kindergarten to Grade 8). Students will proceed to the sign for their appropriate grade. Staff will have class lists and support students to locate their assigned classes.
- We know that parents and students may be anxious and excited in the first few days.

During the first day only, we will allow parents to accompany their child onto the yard in the morning.
-Extra staff will also be on the yard to assist as necessary.

- Student will enter through the front doors. Staff will be available to direct students.
-Year 2 kindergarten students will assemble in the kindergarten hall and teachers will direct students into their classrooms.
-Grades 1 – 5 students will assemble in the gym and locate the sign for their grade. Staff will have class lists and support students to locate their assigned classes.
