Please allow us, once again, to say a special thank-you to our school community for your tremendous understanding and cooperation throughout September as we transitioned back to a new school year and a new normal. We are excited, and although it may look a little different than previous years, we are certain that your child’s safety and overall wellbeing will always be at the forefront. Learning will continue and progress throughout the year. Please take note on our District website, www.nlesd.ca, under the tab ‘students and families’, under the heading ‘school reopening’, there are many wonderful and helpful resources as we continue to live through COVID-19.
Also on our District website, on the right hand side, you will find a tab called ‘Student Transportation’. Many great resources and special rules for students who travel the bus. Please take time to browse and read through these resources
Twitter is a 'microblogging' system that allows you to send and receive short posts called tweets. Tweets can be up to 140 characters long and can include links to relevant websites and resources. Here at St Peter’s, we will use it as a platform to share some of the exciting things going on in our school and important announcements. Even though there is a messaging function it will not replace direct communication (email, phone calls, school messenger) with the school or classroom teachers. If you have a Twitter account and would like to follow us our Twitter handle is @SPeterElem. You can sign up for a free Twitter account at www.twitter.com
Please be aware that due to the safety of school property we still have 3 video surveillance cameras set up at the back of our school. Please note proper signage is in place and if you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
RESOURCES FOR STAFF AND FAMILIES
On our District web site (www.nlesd.ca) under the ‘tab’ Students and Families, under Resources, there are many online resources for K-6 Report Card Guide, Internet/Social Media Safety, Learning to Code, Health & Wellness, and much more. Please visit and browse at your convenience.
If you wish to send along Birthday Invitations, please send along an invitation for each and every child within the class. This will prevent children from becoming upset. Thank you in advance for understanding.
Please be aware that there are great resources/materials for all students, families and staff which can be found at: www.nlesd.ca/schools/busing .
Most notably, resources include:
- Bus Safety Tips Brochure
- Student expectations on the Bus
- Bus safety video (we encourage everyone to view
this 15 minute video)
* Also, bus evacuation drills must be practiced at school this year. It is expected that these drills will be coordinated here at school before the end of November.
We have recently placed 2(two) new signs in front of the school and once again we would like to remind all visitors to our school to be respectful of the Blue Zone parking space. This parking space is reserved for those visitors with a valid Blue Zone Parking Permit. As well we would like to remind everyone that when visiting the school they remember not to park in the designated parking area for Special Transportation located on the bus parking lot. This area is treated as a bus parking area and is reserved for those drivers with a contract to transport students to school.
