2021-2022 School Supply Fee Due by May 31st 

Stratford Elementary teachers will be purchasing student supplies for the upcoming 2021-2022 school year.  As a result, the school supply fee of $45.00 ($40.00 plus $5.00 for a homework/communication agenda) will be collected from each student progressing to Grade 3, Grade 4, Grade 5 and Grade 6 who are zoned to attend this school in September.  Funds may be submitted using the On-Line Hot Lunch Program or by cash/check made payable to Stratford Elementary School at which time a receipt will be issued. Teachers will be purchasing items in June; therefore, payment is required on or prior to Monday, May 31st.

If for some reason your child will not be attending this school in September, please advise the office in order to have the fee waived.  Also, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns.

Dear Parents:

It has come to our attention that the speed of the two way traffic on Glen Stewart Drive between 2:20 and 2:40 on the school days is dangerous. We are concerned with students crossing Glen Steward Drive while parents wait in their cars.

Please help us keep your child safe by walking to the front area of the school close to the Canadian flag pole to safely pick up your child.

We know that your child’s safety is your number on concern as it is ours.

Thanks for helping out!                                                                                                         Sincerely,

Janet Cameron                                                                                                                              Principal
