After many conversations with WIC families, it has become quite apparent that parents take their children’s temperature in different ways. I would like to point out that Public Health requires taking the oral temperature (by mouth) for children 6 years and over. It is important to take the oral temperature when your child first wakes up in the morning and not after breakfast or after consuming a hot or cold drink. In order for the temperature reading to be accurate, please make sure that your child places the thermometer under the tongue while closing his/her mouth tightly.

Our school theme this year is Balance, and we look forward to bringing this to light by way of school-wide activities, classroom workshops as well as resources for you as parents on how we can promote a balanced lifestyle for our families.
The return to school this year is unlike any other. In light of the pandemic and our current health and safety measures that we have in place, we are very aware that some of your children may be experiencing increased levels of worry or anxiety, and that not all may be at ease during the day. Virtual learning, while convenient, can also pose its own set of challenges. Please know that it is our pleasure to support you and your child in navigating this year’s challenges.
Wishing you a wonderful 2020-21 academic year.
