2021-2022 information

Hello and welcome back for another Year at Second Street. Please find information below that may help you as we prepare for our year together.

All students in grades 1- 7 will attend school for one hour on Tuesday, Sept. 7 form 9:00 – 10:00.

Parents of kindergarten students will come to the school on Tuesday, Sept. 7 to sign up for an interview time with one of our kindergarten teachers. Kindergarten students will begin their gradual entry on Wednesday, September 8 and follow the gradual entry schedule provided to you by the kindergarten teachers.

All returning students will go back to the class they were in last year. They will stay in these groups through the week until we are ready to move into the new classes for this year. That will likely be on Monday, September 13.

Students who are new to our school and those who did not attend in-person learning last year, will meet in the undercover area by the field at 9:00 Tuesday, Sept 7. These students will be brought up to the library and spend that one hour together. They will return to the same place Wednesday morning and will be assigned temporary classes for the week. They will be assigned their classes for the year at the same time as the returning students.

Please ensure that you are completing the Daily Health Check at home before bringing your child to school. Health and safety will remain a priority this year. If your child is not feeling well please do not bring them to school. We will be calling home to have sick students picked up. We know this is an inconvenience, but it is in everyone’s best interest to keep everyone healthy.

We have made some changes to our bell schedule and we will have a common start time for all students this year.
