Dear families of G.B.M.S, D.E.P.S and D.A.S.S,
I hope this letter finds you all well. It is so lovely having everyone physically back to school. I have some updates and reminders I would like to share with everyone.
Just a friendly reminder that visitors are NOT allowed in our buildings. If you are not staff or a student, you are considered a visitor. There are no exceptions to this rule. We all need to work together to keep everyone healthy and safe.
On Friday September 24th we will have picture day at both locations. This will NOT be a dress down day. Students are to come in full uniform. Photos will be taken outside, weather permitting. We will not be taking class photos.
Our virtual Science Fair will be October 21st. Your child’s tracher will send you the presentations on the Remind APP and I will post presentations on our school Facebook page. Age 4 to Grade 12 will participate in the Science Fair.
