Thank you for checking in with us and staying on top of the Sissons news! Here are our announcements for this week. We are now in our final three weeks before the Winter Break (starting on December 19th).
COVID PROTECTION MEASURES UPDATED
To date, we have been very fortunate to avoid any instances of COVID in our school, and we hope this continues. Students have been very good at adapting to the new routines, and regularly disinfect their hands when entering the school, and they wear their masks in all common areas of the building.
Last week, Health and Social Services released new screening tools and guidelines for families, students and teachers. Please note that these new tools and routines are effective immediately. An important part of our protection measures is the daily screening of children at home. Please remember this step as you are getting your children ready in the morning to come to school. The school district has posted the new screening tools on our JH Sissons website. Please refer to them from now until further notice.
Please remember that students line up to enter the school at 8:20 in the morning, unless the weather is cold and it is an inside day. All students enter the building under the supervision of staff, and classes start at 8:30. We hope that each student arrives at school on time for classes to start. However, if a student arrives late, please remind them to check in at the office. This will allow us to do a COVID screen for them, and then give them a late slip that admits them to class. Thanks for your help with this!
