Changing Weather:
It is important for all parents to have a plan around school closures in the event of inclimate weather. Please follow this link to the HRSB site to learn more about the potential of school closures.

With colder days means students may need different layers of clothing. Please be sure that students clothes are labeled with their names. Students in elementary school should keep all extra layers in their book bags, but often students forget to do this and things go missing. Please check the Lost and Found often for missing items.

It is still very important that students stay hydrated at school. Please send students with water bottles.

Shawarma Dates:
A clarification on dates. Orders will be delivered on Monday Nov 7th, 21st, 28th, Dec 5th, 12th and 19th.

Remembrance Day Assembly:
An invitation to any families members who are veterans, or members of the service to join us for our school Remembrance Day service on Thursday at 11am. I asked that you please RSVP to our school by calling 902 421 6763 or emailing smiles@hrsb.ca.
