Questions on "back-to-school" Procedures

Thursday, August 20, 2020

Hello Parents and Guardians of Dalkeith,

I hope this letter finds you well.

With all the recent Government announcements and information and directives coming in daily, I am certain you and the children have questions about “back-to-school” procedures for this year.

Rest assured that the school is taking every step possible to make the transition back to classes as smooth and safe as possible.

For Grades 1-6 Students:
  • The plan and schedule for Day 1 (Monday, August 31st, 2020) will be sent home (via email and website) by Tuesday August 25th.
For Pre-K, Kdg and Closed Classroom Students:
  • You will be receiving a phone call from the teacher either Tuesday, August 25th or Wednesday, August 26th.

I know you all must be somewhere between eager and anxious about the return to school (or both at once!). With a lot of hard work (and a little patience) if we all work together we can get through these challenging times.

Continue remaining diligent,

J. Wright

Reminder on behalf of EMSB: The deadline to request medical exemptions for students remains August 25th
