Hotlunches – Need to Register


A form went home on Thursday regarding the lunch program.  There is a lunch schedule open at for the two week period Sept 10-24.  You must register in order to place an order.  Ordering closes tomorrow morning at 8 am.

At the start of each year we need to reset the hotlunch program.  This is a reminder that all parents will have to register again for the system for the 2018-2019 school year.

For now we have the same lunch options as last year.  This could change once we meet with the H and S and find volunteers who want to participate in organizing and/or preparing lunch options.

There are instructions under the lunch program tab on the website.

Welcome Info

Welcome all students, parents and guardians to another school year at Donagh Regional.

The staff at Donagh Regional are excited about the 2018-2019 school year.  We look forward to seeing the students on Thursday and kicking off what will be another awesome year at Donagh Regional.

Parents/Guardians should you have any questions regarding transportation  you should contact them at 902-569-0597

Parents should be advised that for the first day or two, students could be spending longer than normal time on the bus as we work out our new busing routes. As a result, please arrive at the bus stop 10 minutes prior to pick up time in the morning as the drivers work out the exact pick up times and their arrival home at the end of the day may be delayed in some cases.  Our school day starts at 8:45 a.m so if you are dropping your child off we ask that it be between 8:30 a.m-8:35 a.m.  Buses are expected to be at the school between 8:30-8:35 a.m

We understand that some students and parents are anxious to know their class.  We are ready to welcome all students on Thursday morning.  Mr. Kielly will greet each bus when it arrives and will explain to students where to go and will have helpers to make sure each student gets to their proper area.

When students arrive on Thursday staff will be there to greet them and will be taking the K-2 students into the Multi Purpose room. Mrs. Moore (Vice Principal) and K-2 teachers will be there to greet the students and place them in their classes.

Grade 3-6 students will be taken to the gym where Mr. Kielly (Principal) and the grade 3-6 teachers will be there to greet the students and place them in their classes.  Students will then be lead to their homerooms with their homeroom teacher.

Field Trip Reminders

Tomorrow (Friday, June 22) is the final day to return permission slips and money for the field trip on Monday.  We are watching the weather closely and right now it isn’t looking great (fingers crossed for a change in the next few days).  Please listen to radio announcements and check the Donagh Regional Home and School Facebook page for updates.

K-3 Students will be going to Shining Waters.  Due to the increased raindates we are expecting larger than normal crowds.  To make identification easier we are asking all students to wear a blue t-shirt if possible. All teachers will also be wearing blue and if chaperones could wear blue as well that would be helpful. The pool facility is open for children in Gr. 1-3.  (Classes tend to explore the park upon arrival and visit the water attractions in the afternoon after lunch) Kindergarten students will stay in the splash pad area. Please remember to pack sunscreen, snacks and appropriate clothes for the forecast.

4-6 students travelling to Sandspit are responsible for their snacks and lunch.  They will be given a coupon for their meal if they have prepaid.  They are responsible for placing their order and picking up their lunch. Chaperones will be posted around the park. Again, please remember to pack sunscreen, snacks and appropriate clothes for the forecast.

All busses will be leaving the school at 8:45 so we ask chaperones to meet us at the park entrance by 9:30-9:45. If your child will not be taking the bus home or if you plan on taking any other students home with you, they must have written permission from their parents and this should be prearranged before Monday.

The field trip is always a highlight of the year for students and the Donagh Staff wants to send a big THANK YOU to all of our parents that are helping out to make the day a success.
