Support our Home & School. Play Gold Rush

We are very excited to share that the Queens County Home & Schools Gold Rush launched today, Monday, May 10, 2021.

It has been a challenging year for Home & School fundraising, and our home and schools have foregone many of the fundraising efforts they have done in the past to keep our students, parents, staff and community safe.

Participating Home & Schools in Queens County have come together to support one another and to provide a safe, no contact, online weekly raffle.  The new Queens County Home & Schools Gold Rush is an innovative way to generate funds for our school activities and projects, while minimizing the level of effort that coordinating fundraisers often requires.

The new Gold Rush is powered by local PEI start-up, Causable Inc.  Causable provides the Easy to Play online raffle, on a secure platform, ensuring no contact, regulatory compliance and reducing the usual human errors of manual fundraising.

Your local home and school committees fundraise in order to purchase items that will benefit as many students as possible. Some examples of these items are play equipment, funds for music and band, books for classrooms and libraries, breakfast and lunch programs, just to name a few.

For any of our Home & School fundraisers to be a success, we need your help getting the word out, generating excitement, and participating!

How can you help?  Play Gold Rush.  Talk about it.  Tell your friends. Share promotions on social media.

Follow/Like Queens County Home & Schools Gold Rush social media accounts.  Share their promotions.  When you share promotions, ask friends and followers to “Support our Home and School by playing and sharing”.

We launched today and our first draw will be Tuesday, May 25 at 1pm, and then every Tuesday at 1pm.

How does Gold Rush Work?

1. Join the game: https://queenscountyschools.goldrush.causable.io/

2.  Are assigned numbers. These numbers are yours forever and are entered into every draw.

3. Every week, you:

  • Play (by paying)
  • Or don’t play (by not paying)

4. Every week a number is drawn

5. The number is announced

6. One of two outcomes:

  • The number was played that week
    • The person owning the number wins
    • Half the pot to the number holder
    • Half (less operation fees) to the charity
    • The pot resets
  • The number drawn was not played that week
    • The amount of the pot is not reset and the game continues next cycle

New Parent Drop-Off/Pick-Up Area

Important Changes Starting Monday, April 12
Construction on our addition is currently underway. They are making a new parent drop-off/pick-up loop at the top of our current bus loop. Construction on the new drop-off/pick-up loop will be taking place this weekend. The new parent drop-off/pick-up loop will be in use first thing Monday morning.

Procedures for Regular Parent Drop-Off in the Morning
Please note that parents can no longer drop students off in front of the school. This area is reserved for busses only and staff.
– Parents are asked to proceed into the right side of the new parent drop off/pick up loop. Please go as far as you can to the pylon at the top of the drop-off loop.
Parents are asked to remain in their vehicles. When parents get out of the vehicle, you hold up traffic in the drop-off zone. The new drop-off zone is much smaller than the one we were previously using.
– Students are required to get out of the car on the passenger door side. Please make sure your child’s car seat is located on the passenger side.
Students need to be ready to get out of the car. Staff will be there to help if necessary. Students need to be dressed and ready to exit the vehicle quickly.

Procedures for Parent Drop-Off in Morning for Hang-Outs Students
– Parents are to drop their child off using the new parent drop-off loop.
– Staff will be there to direct students on the first day.
Parents are asked to stay in their car. Staff will direct students.

Procedures for dropping off/picking up a child during the school day 8:45-1:30 – During these hours, parents can drop-off/pick-up your child using the front driveway. Please note that the front doors will be locked and students will need to be buzzed in (as they currently are). If you are picking up your child, please call the school office, and we will send your child out to meet you. If you are picking up or dropping off your child outside of these hours, you need to use the new parent drop-off/pick-up zone.

Procedures for End of the Day Pick-Up
– Space is very limited. Parents cannot use the staff parking lot, as busses need clear access to get out and on their way. Many of our drivers have a second run after they drop-off our students. They need to get over to the high school.
– Busses will be leaving the school and going straight out through Havenwood St to Kenwood Circle and then onto Lower Malpeque Road.
– If your child cannot walk home or go home on a bus, and you need to pick them up, you need to meet your child at the parent drop-off/pick-up zone. Students will meet you there.

Walkers
For safety reasons, walkers will be held until busses leave the school.

We are anticipating that it will be very busy during drop-off and pick-up times. If possible, it might be good to have your child travel on the bus. Otherwise, we are asking for everyone’s patience.

Reminder: Only busses and staff vehicles are allowed to enter the school
driveway/parking lot during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up.
