JANUARY 11 / 2019


Happy New Year and Welcome Back

It is lovely to see our students rejuvenated and energized from the winter vacation break.

A few reminders to assist in your planning and to support our students in becoming more independent.

Start and end of day

School starts at 8:25 am, so students should arrive between 8:15 -8:20 am to organize their materials for the day. The school day ends at 3:30 pm.


There is a strict no cell phone before and during the school with the exception of a 10 minutes phone check in at the beginning of lunch. Phones misused at school will be confiscated to the main office, and when a phone has been confiscated 3 times, the privilege of having the phone for 10 minutes at lunch will be lost for the week. If there is a cycle of phone misuse, parents will be contacted. If parents need to reach students outside of the 10 minute allowable time at the start of lunch, feel free to contact the Middle School administrative assistant, Sally Warren at 416 926 1325 #1111.

Winter coats and boots

Winter coats may be hung on coat racks by the 4th level photocopier. Boots should be stowed in the foot cubby below lockers.

Forgotten/lost personal belongings

Please resist the urge to bring things to your children if they have forgotten them at home (unless it is a medical or health issue). Responsibility and independence develops when students are accountable for their belongings.
