Just a few weekly reminders…

- School Council Meeting at 3:00 p.m.
Friday, September 22nd
- PA Day (**no school**)
September packages were sent home within the first day or two of school. It is important that you return the completed forms to the teacher so that we can update our files, note any medical issues / concerns, and ensure the proper permission forms are signed so that your child does not miss out on any upcoming trips. Please ensure you send the completed forms back to the teacher as soon as possible (they were due back by last Friday (September 15th). (Please note that all forms that need to be returned to the school are IN COLOUR to make it easier for you.)
Student Information Verification Forms – Last week, a “Student Information Verification” form was sent home with yellow instructions at the top. Kindly review your child’s information on the form, make any necessary changes, and return the form even if there are no changes. This is how we update our files for accurate telephone numbers, emergency contacts, and medical concerns. Thank you in advance for your help in ensuring our records are up to date.
It is a Board policy to ensure each and every child arrives to school safely. As a result, we ask that you please keep us informed if your child will be absent due to illness, an appointment, vacation plans, etc. Our phone lines are open 24-hours a day, and you can leave a detailed voicemail message at any time by calling (905) 561-0814.
The Parent’s Portal tool on the HWSTS website (www.hamiltonschoolbus.ca) enables parents / guardians to create a secure online account where they can access transportation details for their chid(ren). We have further enhanced the portal to allow account holders to choose to receive email notification when their bus is delayed by more than ten (10) minutes. We encourage you to explore the HWSTS website tools.
