Blacklock Blast – November 10, 2021

November 10, 2021

Today, at 10:00am we will be viewing a video presentation of this year’s Remembrance Day Ceremony and we invite you to join us remotely.  It is a long-standing tradition for schools to support our veterans and the efforts of the Royal Canadian Legion. You can support the Legion’s Poppy Campaign by donating via School Cash Online.  Your generosity is appreciated.

Our In-School Christmas Hamper Fundraiser (Purdy’s Chocolate Bars) continues to run every Tuesday and Friday in the classrooms and before/after school at the Office.  If you would like your child to purchase a chocolate, please send them with the money on those days.  The choices are milk or dark chocolate bars and cost $2.00 each.  Thank you for supporting our school community.

Please continue doing the Daily Health Check with your child and keep them home if they have any symptoms.  As per Public Health, students who develop any symptoms (cough, fever/chills, loss of sense of smell/taste, difficulty breathing, sore throat, loss of appetite, extreme fatigue/tiredness, headache, body ache, nausea, diarrhoea) need to be closely monitored and testing is recommended.  You must stay at home until you receive the test results.  Following these guidelines helps to keep our community safe.

Our District’s procedure is for all students to complete a daily health check at home prior to entering school and/or boarding a District bus. The Ministry of Education’s Daily Health Check poster has been updated to reflect new federal regulations regarding international travel. The symptoms listed remain the same. You can find the updated print version here. The updated version is being translated into multiple languages, which will be posted to the Ministry’s COVID-19 Safe Schools website here. Families can also continue to use the Ministry’s mobile app or online version here.  Please remember to advise the office if your child will be late or staying home for any reason.  Any visitor who enters the building must wear a mask, hand sanitize, and complete the sign in log at the Office.
