Halloween is fast approaching. Students are encouraged to wear their costumes to school on October 30th. Please ensure that replica weapons, like swords and guns, remain at home, as these are not permitted at school. We are asking students to bring a change of clothes for recess, so as to prevent soiling or damaging their costumes before the big day on Saturday. Candy should remain at home, as Ecole Hammond Bay follows the Ministry’s Healthy Food Guidelines. Thank you for your cooperation.
As of June 1, 2020, Ecole Hammond Bay is open for in-class instruction:
K-5 – 50% of students for 50% of the time (2 days per week)
Grade 6-7 – 50% of students for 20% of the time (1 day per week)
All classes K-5 have been divided into 2 groups Tuesday & Wednesday and Thursday & Friday. Grades 6-7 have been similarly divided and will attend on Tuesday or Thursday.
Due to the number of families who have indicated that they are returning for in-class instruction, we will be staggering morning entrance, recesses and dismissal times to ensure that we can offer enough space to our families to physical distance.
For families not returning, remote learning opportunities will continue to be provided by the classroom teachers.
For more information about the return to school during these COVID-19 times, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
Year End Summative Written Reports will be sent home to families via email this Spring 2020. If you have recently changed your email address(es), please contact the school office as soon as possible at 250-758-5711.
