Community news:

  • PROTECT CANADIAN KIDS: Nicotine levels in e-cigarettes must be reduced to protect Canadian kids . Kids who try vaping products are at high risk of becoming addicted users. By the time kids finish high school, 1/3 are vaping. Health Canada is proposing to limit the amount of nicotine that can be sold in vaping liquids to 20 mg/ml. This is the level that the European Union adopted several years ago. The vaping rates among young people in the European Union are far lower than those in Canada. In Canada, some e-cigarettes have nicotine levels of 59 or 57 mg/ml, placing Canadian kids at risk and contributing to very high levels of youth vaping in Canada. You can help protect Canadian kids by letting Health Canada know that you support this important regulation. For more information: info@ProtectCanadianKids.ca

Reminders – HotLunches, Water Bottles and Bring Your Own Cutlery

The deadline for HutLunches orders is Sunday, February 28th at midnight.

A reminder that all students need to bring a water bottle each day filled with water.  Our water fountains are not available for use.

The PEI Healthy School Food Program recognizes the importance of environmental sustainability. To reduce the program’s foot print, we will be moving towards a 100% bring your own cutlery model. Students participating in the PEI Healthy School Food Program must bring their own cutlery to school.
