Important Message to Families Before Spring Break
We have had an awesome 2nd term; it started with uncertainly relating to the Omicron variant but throughout the 3 months of school, Walter Lee continues to be a safe and healthy place to be. We had a lot of fun in classrooms and this week we welcomed the “Milton Randall Afro drumming experience,” the students had fun learning a variety of drumming rhythms. As we look forward to term 3, the staff at Walter Lee want to wish all families a restful spring break. School will be back in session onMonday, March 28th.
Spirit Day tomorrow
Tomorrow, we will be having our first Spirit Day of the year, Switcheroo Day. On Switcheroo Day, students can dress up like a teacher and adults will dress like students!
Milton Randall Afro Drumming
We have really enjoyed our drumming sessions this week. Each class participated in 3 sessions of drumming instruction from Milton Randall. By the end of the week, there will be a post in your child’s digital portfolio with their class’ performance. We hope you enjoy it. We would also like to thank the PAC for contributing funds to bring this experience to our school.
Spring Break Traveling
If you are planning on traveling during the break, please be aware of the travel guidelines. On February28, the Federal Government implemented new COVID-19 testing options for travelers entering Canada. To be accepted as a valid pre-entry test, Rapid antigen tests must be professionally administered or observed by a pharmacy, laboratory, healthcare entity or telehealth service. Un-observed self- administered rapid antigen tests are not accepted. Staff, students and families are responsible for understanding and adhering to all international travel requirements including COVID-19 travel, testing and borders as outlined by the Government of Canada. They are advised to become familiar with the travel requirements of their destination, including accepted pre-entry tests.
Changes to health protocols start March 28th
A new announcement was made by the province today around health protocols in schools. Please be aware the masks are still required tomorrow (March 11) and will be optional starting Monday March 28th when we return to school after spring break.
