Safe Schools Arrival Program

In our efforts to ensure the safety of each of our students, we ask that parents contact the school if their children will be absent.  Our   office is open from 8:30-4:30pm.  Should you wish to call outside of office hours, you may leave a message on our answering machine, at (613) 393-3262.

 

Volunteers

 alt

At Pinecrest School, we welcome and encourage parent and community volunteers.  We value and appreciate the important work that they do.  Board policy requires that volunteers having direct contact with students have a current Criminal Background Check.   A standard form will be provided by our office to assist with this requirement.  Please allow 4 to 6 weeks to obtain a records check.  Once a background check is on file with the school, please be aware that volunteers will be required to complete an annual Offence Declaration Form (Form F498-3)  if they wish to continue to volunteer at our school. 

In addition, anyone volunteering to transport students, will need to obtain and complete an Excursion Authorization for Drivers Form (Form F230-6).  Please note, that a separate form will be required for each excursion for which you volunteer.

 If you have any questions, please contact our school office at 1-613-393-3262.

 

Pack it In, Pack it Out Lunches

As part of our efforts to be environmentally friendly, and foster a sense of environmental responsibility and awareness in our children, we will be continuing with our “Pack it In, Pack it Out” lunch policy this year at Pinecrest School. This means that once students have finished eating, all containers and remaining food will be packed back into their lunch bag and returned home at the end of the day. In order to facilitate this process, it would be helpful to pack snack and lunch items in re-usable, re-sealable containers, to eliminate mess in student lunch bags. It may also be helpful to include an empty sealable bag or container to hold any unfinished items, fruit peelings, etc. Thank you for helping us to do our part to help our environment! 
 

Student Planners / Agendas

At Pinecrest School, we believe that regular home/ school communication is critical to student success. In an effort to promote daily communication, all students from Gr. 1 to Gr. 6 will receive planners this year. Students in our intermediate grades will be using electronic calendars. These tools will provide an easy and consistent method of getting messages and important information to and from school. If you have important messages to pass along to your child(ren)’s teacher, the planner is the most efficient means of doing so. 

School Hours

Please note that yard supervision begins at 9:10. 

In order to ensure student safety, we ask that students who walk or are driven to school DO NOT arrive at school prior to that time. At 9:10, students should proceed to Primary yard until the entry bell rings. Junior and Intermediate yards are NOT open before school. 

Peanut / Nut Alert

Pinecrest School is a nut and peanut sensitive zone. We do have members of our school community with life-threatening nut allergies. In our attempt to provide a safe environment for students, staff and guests with anaphylactsis, we ask that all snacks and lunches be free from any nuts or nut products. Please read the label of all foods sent to school, to ensure that products do not contain traces of nuts or nut products. Should a student bring items containing nuts or traces of nuts, the products will be removed from the classroom immediately, and returned home at the end of the day. We appreciate your support in ensuring the safety of all members of our school community.
