Dear Trafalgar Families,
It is that time of year again! To our returning families, we can’t wait to see you and hear all about your summer adventures. To our new families, we extend a very warm welcome, we are confident that you will find our school a fun, inclusive and energetic space to grow and learn.
For now, we would like to share with you some important information about the first day back to school and what to expect within the first week.
Next Tuesday, September 6th, all Trafalgar students will need to be prepared to attend school from 8:55am to 10 am. Please carefully follow the guidelines below:
- Parents, please keep child(ren) at home if they are sick and call the school safe arrival line 604-713-5179 extension #86. Please note we have a new Office Administrative Assistant, her name is Justine Doiron.
- Masks continue to be optional; social distance at your own discretion and please let your teachers know. We are a caring community that respects personal boundaries.
- In the morning, all students are asked to line up outside the designated doors until a teacher picks them up. Please refer to attached map for the different entrances that are highlighted. All students grades 1 to 7, please go to your last year’s classroom teacher. The following teachers and rooms have changed:
