Elementary Recess Update
The first week of the modified elementary schedule went well. Please ensure that your child is dressed for the weather as they now have additional time outside.
Along with other activities, students have the opportunity to play outdoor ball hockey at recess with students in their class or cohort; it has been a popular activity.
Here are a few of the safety guidelines that we ask students to follow while playing.
- Body contact, stick-on-body contact, or stick-on-stick contact are not allowed.
- Sticks must be in contact with the ground at all times, except on a shot or a pass where the stick should not be raised above waist level.
- Slapshots are not be allowed.
- Students may bring sticks from home as long as they are routinely checked for damage and labelled with the child’s name.
- Students are encouraged to wear safety glasses or goggles (supplied from home) as an additional safety precaution.
We are also in need of additional sticks. If you have any sticks (new, used, or with broken blades) to donate, please send them with your child to bring to the office or leave them outside near the cart at the front entrance.
