Weekly update

We were so fortunate to have another great turnout at our PAC meeting last Tuesday with over 43 parents joining. As a part of our focus on inclusion and community building, the Tokmak Family shared a bit about their home country of Turkey and their experiences as newcomers to Canada and Traflagar.

Each month we will meet a new Trafalgar family so please contact us at info@trafalgarpac.ca if you are interested in being involved.  

The PAC Direct Appeal is running until this Friday and we are really hoping that each and every family is able to make a contribution this year. All the details for this year’s Direct Appeal can be found here at: trafalgarpac.ca/appeal. We appreciate your support!
 
Remember that goal setting conferences continue this week so students will be released at 2pm on Thursday and Friday is a ProD Day.

Updates from School Administration

 

Daily Health Check

Just a reminder for all of our community to assess ourselves daily for key symptoms of illness prior to entering the school by performing a daily health check. We keep the Daily Health Check document on the front of our site and you can also grab it here.
 

What to Do if a Student Develops New Symptoms of Illness

This information comes from COVID-19 Public Health Guidance for K-12 School Settings.

A student should stay home when new symptoms of illness develop.

  • If the student indicates that the symptoms are consistent with a previously diagnosed health condition and are not unusual, the student can return to school.

  • For mild symptoms without fever, students can be monitored at home for 24 hours. If symptoms improve, they can return to school without further assessment.

  • If symptoms include fever, or if after 24 hours, symptoms remain unchanged or worsen, seek a health assessment. This can include calling 8-1-1, a primary care provider or going to a COVID-19 testing centre.

When a COVID-19 test is recommended by the health assessment:

  • If the COVID-19 test is positive, the student should stay at home until they are told by public health to end their self-isolation. 

  • If the COVID-19 test is negative, the student can return to school once symptoms have improved and the student feels well enough.

  • If a COVID-19 test is recommended but is not done because the parent chooses not to have the test or a health assessments is not sought when recommended, and the student’s symptoms are not related to a previously diagnosed health condition, they should stay home from school until 10 days after the onset of symptoms, and then may return if feeling well enough.

If a COVID-19 test is not recommended by the health assessment, the student can return to school when symptoms have improved and the student feels well enough.


Early Pick Up Procedure

Parents who need to occasionally pick up children from school early are able to do so in a few easy steps:

  1. Tell your child’s teacher in the morning what time will you pick up your child

  2. As your child’s teacher knows the pick up time, he/she will send your child to the office at that time to wait for your arrival.

  3. Come to the main school entrance, stay outside and call office (604) 713-5475

  4. Your child will be brought to you outside.


Parents on the School Grounds

Please note that there has been a request from the school and teachers that parents who are dropping off and picking up their kids please keep their distance from the students who are standing in line waiting to enter/exit the building. We are fortunate to have very large school grounds and ask that parents not mingle with students in line with the goal of keeping our community safe.


School Fees

All families will have received an email outlining school fees that are payable through the VSB School Cash Online system. This includes fees for the Agenda ($10), Jump Math books ($20) and School supplies ($35). Please pay by October 21st to the VSB.  
 



Hot Lunch refunds

All parents who have credit in the Munchalunch system will receive an email from us by Thursday with confirmation of the amount due. 

This email will include a link for you to let us know your address and we plan to send out all cheques by the end of October.

来自学校管理部门的最新消息

日常健康检查

提醒每一个人,在每天进入学校之前,我们都需要针对那些关键症状进行自我检查、评估。我们将每日健康检查文档保留在我们网站的前面,您也可以在此处获取它。

 

如果学生出现新的疾病症状该怎么办

该信息来自K-12学校管理的COVID-19公共卫生指南。

当出现新的疾病症状时,学生应留在家里。

●如果学生认为症状与先前诊断的健康状况一致且不常见,则学生可以返回学校。

●对于不发烧的轻度症状,可以在家中对学生进行24小时监控。如果症状改善,他们无需进一步评估即可返回学校。

●如果症状包括发烧,或者如果24小时后症状保持不变或恶化,请寻求健康评估。这可以包括致电8-1-1,初级保健提供者或去COVID-19测试中心。

当健康评估部门建议进行COVID-19测试时:

●如果COVID-19测试呈阳性,则学生应待在家里,直到公共卫生部门告知他们结束自我隔离。

●如果COVID-19测试结果为阴性,则一旦症状改善并且学生感觉良好,就可以重返学校。

●如果建议进行COVID-19测试但由于家长选择不进行该测试而没有进行,或者在推荐时未进行健康评估,并且学生的症状与先前诊断的健康状况无关,则应留在家中直到症状发作后的10天,然等到感觉足够好了就可以会回来。

如果健康评估部门没有推荐进行COVID-19测试,则学生可以在症状改善并且感觉良好后返回学校。

 

提早接孩子的程序

父母们如果偶尔需要提早从学校接孩子,可以遵循以下这些简单的步骤:

 1.早上告诉孩子的老师,您什么时候接孩子

2.因为您的孩子的老师知道接送时间,他/她会在那时将您的孩子送到办公室等待您的到来。

3.来到学校的主要入口,在外面等,并致电办公室(604)713-5475

4.您的孩子将被带到外面。

 

父母在校园里时

请注意,学校和老师均要求父母下车接孩子,请与排队等候进出大楼的学生保持距离。我们很幸运有很大的校园,并要求家长不要与学生混在一起,以确保我们的社区安全。

 

学费

所有家庭可能已经收到一封电子邮件,内容是关于通过VSB School Cash Online系统支付的学费。其中包括日志(10元),数学书籍(20元)和学校用品(35元)的费用。请在10月21日之前向VSB付款。

 

万圣节投票结果

在上周的民意调查中获得了74票,有46%的人说是的,他们会带孩子出去讨糖,有54%的人说不。

即将到来的重要日期

●11月11日星期三-纪念日-不用上学
