Weekly Update: Friday, June 5th , 2020

Hello St Davids' Families, 

What a beautiful week! As we continue with this remote learning we are so blessed to have such an incredible community coming together and continuing to learn together. Please let your children know how proud we are of the work they are doing each and every day:)  Parents and guardians are doing a fabulous job as well to support their children.  It takes a village!! 

We wanted to share some IMPORTANT reminders for those families who are coming into the building next week to collect belongings. Our main goal is to keep our staff and families SAFE so please take time to review the information prior to coming into the school. It is also not too late to sign up to come in. Next week is the ONLY time the school will be open to collect belonging so we strongly encourage you to sign up if you haven’t already done so. Link is at the bottom of this message. 

Please BE ON TIME for the time slot you selected this will help everyone move in and out of the building in a timely fashion. Please do not show up if you haven't signed up for a time. We need to keep track of which families have entered and exited the building for Niagara Public Health. Remember it is all of our responsibilities to social distance. 

In preparation:

  • Please only bring necessary family members to keep your group as small as possible.
  • Students will not be permitted into the school without a parent/guardian present.
  • Complete the Ontario COVID -19 Self-Assessment on your scheduled day for each family member coming into the school.  Please do not attend if you do not pass the self-assessment.  https://covid-19.ontario.ca/self-assessment/
  • Bring 2 plastic bags for each student, if the items were not bagged by staff ahead of time.  All items other than school property will need to be brought home from the desk/locker.  This includes items for disposal.
  • Follow proper hand hygiene guidelines before entering the school. There will be hand sanitizer 
  • PPE will not be provided, but families may choose to wear their own masks and/or gloves.

Upon Arrival at School

  • Hand sanitizer will be available at the entrance.  Please practice respiratory etiquette: Cover your cough.
  • Entrance will be through the front doors of the school.  Signage will be provided directing families to an alternate door to exit the school.  Access is only to the homeroom classroom. 
  • If you enter and only are in the primary hallway then you can exit out doors near the east parking lot. 
  • If you turn down the junior/intermediate hallway, you must exit out the doors leading out to the parking lot. 
  • Do no backtrack 
  • No entry to some classrooms.  Most teachers have already bagged up students' personal items. 
  • Library, Gym, Water fountains and Washrooms are closed.  
  • Limited school staff will be present to support this process; however, there is no guarantee that students’ homeroom teachers will be available on the day of pick-up.
  • Please ensure 2 metres physical distancing between others What is physical distancing?.  The schedule has been created to allow for a small number of families at a time; however, passing in the hallway or in the classroom may occur. Children must remain with parent(s)/guardian(s) at all times during this process. 
  • Once you have gathered all personal belongings, please promptly leave the school at the designated exit.
  • No gatherings are permitted in the parking lot or on the school yard either before or after.
  • We know many of you show appreciation for your teachers with small gifts at the end of the year.  Please refrain from bringing teacher gifts this year.
