Welcome Back!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome back to another year at McBride Annex! Our school newsletter will go home by September 6th, but here is some basic information for the first two days of school:

We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, September 3rd from 9:00 to 10:00 am. Students and parents all will begin in the gym for a brief assembly, followed by students returning to their old classrooms for half an hour. New Kindergarten students will remain in the gym with Ms. Ongley and Mr. Chamberlain. Parents are welcome to socialize in the library or outdoors during this time. We will conclude our time together with students and families in the gym to give everyone information about class organizations for Wednesday, September 4th. All students are dismissed at 10:00 am on Tuesday.

Little Mountain Out of School Care (LMOSC) has arranged to be open the first day of school and will supervise their enrolled children after the first hour to return the main school for the rest of the day. This does not apply to other students who are not already enrolled in the LMOSC program. All other parents must pick their children up at 10:00 am on Tuesday.
All Grade One to Three students begin full days (9:00 am to 3:00 pm) on Wednesday, September 4th. Kindergarten students are on gradual entry until September 11th when full days begin for them. Gradual entry schedules were mailed to those families in the summer. Please check with the Kindergarten teachers if you are unsure which group your child is in for the gradual entry days.

Please make sure to bring your child to school on time each day. We begin promptly at 9:00 am.  Outdoor supervision begins at 8:35 am with Mr. Chamberlain. See you all on Tuesday!
