ONLINE FIELD TRIPS

We are using online permission forms for all excursions this year.  You can access the online excursion form and pay any fees through PowerSchool.  You should see excursion forms for the Terry Fox Walk and Skating.

SKATING

This year, we will be going skating at the Ken Nichol Arena.  Please click this link to find out when your child’s class skates.  Reminder, CSA approved ice helmets are required.  Parents are encouraged to come and volunteer.  The Town of Beaumont requires all helpers on the ice to be on skates.  We recommend that all adult volunteers wear helmets.  

MICROWAVES:

We generally do not have microwaves in most classrooms.  This is mainly because of air quality/safety concerns and time management issues.  If your child requires warm food at lunch we encourage families to use insulated containers.


SCHOOL FEES:

Our provincial government, school division, and school have worked together to reduce and eliminate school fees.  Please contact Principal, Patrick Gamache Hutchison if ever you have questions about any of the fees or are unable to pay.

PARKING RESTRICTIONS:


The Beaumont Community Centre has notified us that their parking lot will have limited access for our staff and parents on September 27th.  Please allow for additional time for parking, pick-up and drop-off.

HOUR ZERO:

We will be starting our Emergency Drills next week. In Black Gold
Regional Schools we use the “Hour Zero” emergency protocols. Here is a
link to our website which explains this system: Parent Information on Hour Zero
