Rousseau Track & Field – Request for Parent Volunteers (REVISED: June 2nd)

Dear Parents/Guardians of Students in Gr 3 to Gr 6,

Rousseau Track & Field Day

We will be having our Track & Field event at Rousseau this week for all students in Gr.3-6. We have it scheduled for Thursday, June 2nd (REVISED due to inclement weather on June 1st) beginning at 9:30 am, and ending at approximately 3:00 pm.    Parents and Guardians are more than welcome to come over to the school to cheer students on.  As per HWDSB policy,  spectators are encouraged to wear a mask and respect social distancing rules.

Please remember to send your child with a comfortable pair of running shoes, and have them dressed for the weather.   Please ensure that they have sunblock, their lunch and a bottle of water.  They will be outside for most of the school day.

Here is an approximate outline of when events will be happening:
