September Message for Familieshttp://adm.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/184September Message for Families<p>​</p><p><em>Hello Fleet Families!</em></p><p><em>We are getting the school up and running for this school year and the feeling of excitement is certainly building. We want students to get the message that we are really excited to see them again. With my last message, I shared that it is important for us, as adults, to have conversations to ensure we are doing our best to make Admiral the safest place we can as we strive to mitigate risk as much as possible. What the kids need to know is that things will be different but we are looking forward to working with them.</em></p><p><em>Here is our Welcome Back to School video to show your child(ren): </em></p><p><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=apxRzbruA6g">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=apxRzbruA6g</a></p><p><em> </em><em>Staff are working to balance their new training in health and safety with the fact that they are looking forward to being back with students. Education really is the business of relationship building and our educators at Admiral are showing how much they care about kids every day. This message contains some more information as we get ready for the first days of school next week. The message I sent last week is on our school website at adm.scdsb.on.ca and teachers are sending messages to classes before the weekend.</em></p><p><strong>Arrival and Departure</strong></p><p>We need to mitigate the number of people on the yard at both the beginning of the day and the end of the day. Older kids are expected to be more independent so we would look for adults to "drop and go" at the beginning of the day and to "pick up and leave" at the end of the day. Adults who are walking/biking with their kids to school can take them to their meeting spot if they feel it is necessary. At the end of the day, walkers/bikers can come on to the yard and pick up their little ones. Standing and chatting with adult friends is something that we discourage. Please walk and talk with your friends as you arrive and/or leave.  Dismissal times for each class will be coming to you in the email you receive from your child's classroom teacher. </p><p>For students in kindergarten, dismissal will be from the kindergarten yard with more details coming to you from your child's teacher this week. </p><p>Students in grades 1-5, your child's teacher will be asking for your end of day plan if they are not a student who rides the bus. That is, we will plan to have them at the car pick up area if you need that or we will have them in their class meeting spot if you require that. </p><p>Students in grades 6-8 (ages 10+) are expected to be more independent. If you have the need for an individual plan for your child. Please communicate it with your child's teacher so we can get plans ready ahead of time.</p><p><strong>Bus</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>Students will continue to ride the bus as they did in previous years.  Students in k-3 are encouraged to wear their masks on the bus while it is mandatory for students in grades 4-8 (the same as in the school).  The Simcoe County Student Transportation Consortium will be creating seating plans for all students to allow for contact tracing.  Students will be expected to remain in their assigned seat.</p><p> </p><p>Students will not be permitted to access transportation until they receive a transportation letter with their assigned seat which will confirm the effective date that their transportation will commence. Transportation letters will be distributed to families through SchoolMessanger weekly on Thursday's. If you have not received a letter the Thursday of the week after you have registered/submitted your change through the school, please contact the SCSTC at <a href="mailto:info@scstc.ca">info@scstc.ca</a> or (705) 733-8965 for a status update.</p><p> </p><p>Many of your transportation questions can be answered here - <a href="https://main.simcoecountyschoolbus.ca/sites/default/files/2020-21%20SCSTC%20FAQs-Student%20Transportation%20for%20Fall%202020-Updated%20Aug%2c%2027%2c%202020.pdf">Transportation FAQ</a></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>KISS and RIDE</strong></p><p><strong>Student Drop Off and Pick Up</strong></p><p>If you are choosing to drive your child to school, please allow 10-15 minutes to get through the kiss and ride loop.  It is controlled and it is safe, but there are a lot of people arriving at one time.  Consider arriving at 8:40 or 8:55 to avoid the peak drop off or closer to 3:25 at the end of the day.  As an alternative, try on street parking (south side of Krista Court or at the end of the trail that leads to the back gate of the school and walking with your child. </p><ul><li>Parents enter the school parking lot off of Dey drive (beside the construction area).</li><li>Join the line of vehicles.</li><li>Do not park or exit your vehicle.</li><li>School staff will greet students along the pylons beside the portables</li><li>Please wait until the designated unloading/loading area</li><li>5 or 6 vehicles are unloaded/loaded at a time then the whole vehicle line moves forward. </li><li>You will be asked to unload anywhere along the pylons, even if you aren't the first vehicle!</li><li>Be patient and allow yourself sufficient time - everyone has the same goal</li></ul><br> <strong>Water bottle filling stations</strong><br><br>Water fountains are not accessible at this time but our school has two water bottle filling stations. Please label your child's water bottle as we will not have a lost and found.<br><br><strong> </strong><strong>Masks</strong><br><br>The kids will need to wear masks in the hallways on their way outside so they need to have an accessible pocket in which to keep their mask. Fanny packs are fine. Label the masks as I am sure we will have some lost ones. <br><br>When it comes to which mask is mandated for kids, the guidelines are that the covering needs to cover the nose, mouth and chin securely. A neck gaiter is acceptable as it wraps under the chin but a bandana that hangs loose is not acceptable for keeping water droplets as contained as possible.<br><br><strong>Indoor Shoes</strong><br><br>Phys ed will be taking place outside with masks off. Indoor shoes are not mandatory this year. I would suggest shoes that enable running around outside.<br><br><strong>Supplies</strong><br><br>Here is a list of supplies by grade level. It is very general and it is not mandatory to send the supplies but some families have asked if they can items in order to be sure that no sharing is happening. If you are sending these items, I would recommend a method of organizing as well - Resealable plastic bags, pencil cases, etc. with a label.<br><br><span style="text-decoration-line:underline;">Kindergarten</span><br><br>crayons<br><br>kleenex<br><br>container of play doh<br><br>sharpened pencils<br><br>glue stick<br><br>eraser<br><br>scissors<br><br> <br><br><span style="text-decoration-line:underline;">Grades 1-3</span><br><br>sharpened pencils<br><br>crayons or pencil crayons<br><br>pencil sharpener<br><br>scissors<br><br>glue stick<br><br>eraser<br><br>white board markers<br><br> <br><br><span style="text-decoration-line:underline;">Grades 4-6</span><br><br>sharpened pencils<br><br>pencil crayons<br><br>glue stick<br><br>eraser<br><br>pencil sharpener<br><br>white board markers<br><br> <br><br><span style="text-decoration-line:underline;">Grades 7-8</span><br><br>sharpened pencils<br><br>pens<br><br>pencil crayons<br><br>glue stick<br><br>eraser<br><br>binder that fits in backpack<br><br>dry erase markers<br><br><strong>Lunches</strong><br><p>The majority of school waste, particularly garbage, comes from lunches. The best way to mitigate this is by promoting waste-free lunches: packing a lunch in reusable containers, with minimal packaging. This is an optimal time to be promoting waste-free lunches as it will result in less material being discarded in classrooms and less time going to the depots for recycling and green bin. </p><p> </p><p><br></p>
