Principal's Message

Congratulations to all of you for persevering through the challenges of online learning, especially the challenges we have no control over, such as province wide limitations with Google and internet connectivity. We all remain hopeful that we will be back face to face Jan 11th. 

When we return face to face, students that borrowed devices from the school will be required to bring everything back, this includes, charging blocks, charge cords, headphones, and of course the device. We will need all the parts and pieces to make them work. 

Upon our return we will be reviewing our Covid 19 Health and Safety protocols thoroughly with the students. The weekend before could you please review the basic principles and expectations, with your child/ren. 

Thank you to everyone doing their part to help keep Huron Perth a safe place to be.

Internet Trouble

As suspected the internet is struggling to keep up. With all of Ontario online it is not a surprise. We will continue to troubleshoot. Throughout the day log on periodically.   We have to have patience as we all work through this.

Picture Retake/Absentee Day

Adanac will be here Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at 9:00 am to do retakes and to take photos for the students that were away on the original day.

Winter Weather & Clothing

Please remember to send your child(ren) to school with appropriate clothing, as the weather is getting colder. Boots, hats, warm mitts and snow pants are a must. Please ensure that your child has a pair of indoor shoes to wear. A change of clothes is always a good idea. 

Winter and PPE

Winter is proving to be another new COVID PPE reality for us to navigate.  If possible, please provide your child with an extra mask during the winter months.

Parents and Staff need to continue to remind our students to wear their masks while indoors/bus and to continue regular hand washing/sanitizing. Parents please know we have worked closely with Huron Perth Health Unit preparing in the case of any notification of possible Covid-19 diagnosis. 

Schools are a safe place for your child to be.

At school this could look like:

  • -turning the lights off when you leave the room
  • -caring for borrowed items
  • -picking up after yourself
  • -carrying out a duty and being trustworthy
  • -taking responsibility for a mistake when you make one
