PARENT UPDATE- September 13th, 2019

Dear Families,  


Again, we are very grateful to be entrusted with your children for the 2019-20 school year! 


We have many new and exciting opportunities planned for Elm Street Students this year.  Some of which includes:


  • We will be partnering with Medicine Hat College and Bring Back the Music Program this year. Students in Grades 4-6 will receive instruction on playing the Viola, Violin, or Cello each Monday, during school. Also, our Choral Program will be returning next week on Thursday afternoon from 2:30-3:15.  A permission will follow for the Choral program. 


  • We are finalizing plans for our after school planning that is set to start on the week of September 23rd. A schedule will follow soon, but our aim is to provide students with athletic and non- athletic programs each week.  Pickup, or permission for students to walk will be required to access this programming, as we are unable to provide transportation at this time. 


Some Housekeeping Items: 


  • For bus students, please not that pick up times have been moved up 10 minutes earlier. A new map, with new pickup times will be emailed out. 


  • Our morning supervision begins each day at 8:05. We are asking that students not be dropped off before then. Students are to join teachers on the playground each morning, rather than entering through the school. In the past, students have always lined their backpacks up along the school prior to playing and then pick them up again as the bell rings and they enter the school. 


  • You may have noticed that our hallways are extra busy this year as our enrollment is up considerably. With that said, we are asking that parents who pick up their children are mindful of the bottleneck that can happen in our hallways at the end of the day.  If at all possible, we are asking that parents who pick up their children, especially older children, wait at the front doors of the school to meet their children. Bus students as well as walking students will be exiting through the back doors. 


  • Finally, we ask that if there are changes to your students normal transportation routine, such as bus students being picked up, we ask that you contact the office to let us know.



As always, we are thankful for your support!
