Precautions to take during a heat wave.
It’s really HOT!
Sending your child back to elementary school
We want to stress the importance of informing us if your child(ren) will be attending school. If you have previously indicated that your child will not be attending and you change your mind and decide to send your child to school, we absolutely need to know, at least one full week in advance. This is to allow us the necessary time to make sure we are able to provide a safe and secure environment to our staff and all of our students. Please phone the school
Should you change your mind and want to stop sending your child(ren) to school, you must notify the school immediately for logistical reasons.
Parents are asked, whenever it is possible, to drive their own child(ren) to school. For families with shared custody, due to the restrictions for transportation, we can accommodate only one address per student. For any changes the transportation department will reevaluate routes on Mondays. You must give one week’s notice. (ex. For your child to have transportation on June 1 you must inform us by Monday May 25th.) If you no longer require transportation, it is important to advise the school as spaces are limited.

General prevention measures
Recognized hygiene measures are recommended for everyone:
- Wash your hands often with soap under warm running water for at least 20 seconds.
- Use an alcohol-based hand rub if soap and water are not available.
- Practice proper cough and sneeze etiquette by covering your mouth and nose with your arm to reduce the spread of germs.
- If you use a tissue, dispose of it as soon as possible and wash your hands afterwards.
