Messages Left on Voicemail

Please note that messages left on the school voicemail are not guaranteed to be picked up prior to dismissal.  As a result, it is always best to put pick up arrangements in your child’s agenda the night before.  That way there is no confusion as to how your child will be getting home (whether it’s on the bus, the Before and After School Program, or if a parent or emergency contact will be picking him / her up).  We endeavour to retrieve voicemail messages immediately, but the phones are extremely busy during dismissal, and communication with bus monitors makes it even more hectic.  Your cooperation is greatly appreciated and makes things so much easier by clarifying how your child will be getting home by putting it in writing in the agenda.

Use of Agendas

Again, parents are encouraged to make use of the student agendas for messages to teachers, and reminders regarding pick-up after school.  This way the teacher can check the agenda each day and communicate concerns or words of encouragement.  Likewise, if you have any messages for the teacher, he / she can reply back to you quickly and promptly.  Communication is key, and the agenda is a great way to keep those lines of communication open!

 

 

IMPORTANT – Is Your Email Address Up to Date???

A mass telephone message was sent out by HWDSB to parents and caregivers a while ago asking to update their email addresses with their respective school.  HWDSB is adapting a new system that will make it easier for you to report – and respond to – a child’s school absence.  Once this system is deployed in Spring 2019, SafeArrival will let you use a website, mobile app, or an interactive toll-free phone number to report an absence in advance.  However, an email address is required in order for you to log in to SafeArrival and to receive notifications.  As a result, it is imperative that email addresses are current in order for the upcoming roll out of this app.  Without a current email address, you will NOT be able to set up the account.  In an effort to ensure our Attendance program has your current email address, I ask that each parent or caregiver who has custody of a student here at Sir Isaac Brock School please click “Reply” to this email and reply with your children(s) name(s), YOUR NAME, your email address, and your phone number(s)Please note that this email distribution list that I use to send out Weekly Reminders and monthly calendars is NOT connected to the Attendance program.  As a result, please click “Reply” to this message and I will manually enter each email address into the Attendance program.  Learn more about SafeArrival at bit.ly//safearrivalHWDSB.  And please note that the SafeArrival rollout will be translated into twenty-three (23) different languages!

When you reply, please use the following format…

Your Child(rens) Name(s): 

Your Name: 

Your Email Address: 

Your Phone Number(s):  (please indicate whether it’s cell/landline/etc.)

Kindergarten Registration Has Already Begun

Kindergarten registration has already started for families with children entering either Junior Kindergarten (born in 2015) or Senior Kindergarten (born in 2014 who are not presently attending school).  For your convenience, we have attached a copy of the registration form, and have posted a copy on our website https://www.hwdsb.on.ca/sirisaacbrock/ so it may be printed and filled out before you come to the school.  In addition to the completed registration form, the child’s birth certificate (or proof of birth), immunization information, and proof of address (hydro bill, lease, mortgage, etc.) will be needed to complete the process.  Please share this information with your neighbours as well as families new to the community.  For those who would like to know more about the Kindergarten program, an information evening will take place on Wednesday, May 22nd from 4:00 until 5:00 p.m.  **Please Note – students already attending Junior Kindergarten do not need to re-register for next year.**  For more information regarding kindergarten, please feel free to visit https://www.hwdsb.on.ca/kindergarten/.

 

 

 

Have a great (short) week!
