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

We have some changes that took place on February 1st that you need to know about. Students in Grades 3 and 4 will be departing the school at 2:20pm until 2:30pm. The Grade 5 and 6 students will leave the school at about 2:30 until 2:35pm. This change has been required to cover instructional time for students. Please be patient as it will take us a few days in order to have this dismissal time working smoothly.
