Picture Day, PTI’s, Orange Shirt Day and So Much More at EMHS!

As we wrap up September and are quickly approaching October there is much going on at Ecole Meridian Heights School! Please read on to learn more.

Orange Shirt Day – Wednesday, September 30th

Ecole Meridian Heights School will once again be supporting Orange Shirt day by encouraging all students and staff to wear an Orange Shirt on Wednesday. You can learn more of the story behind this initiative by watching this short Video from Phyllis Webstad.

Picture Day – Wednesday October 6th and Thursday, October 7th

We will be having our school pictures on Wednesday October 6th and Thursday, October 7th. For those students currently attending the school for in person learning, pictures will proceed similar to previous years, with additional protocols in place. Some of these protocols are social distancing, students in grades 4-9 wearing masks to the small gym, photographers wearing masks throughout, and fewer students at a time going for pictures. All students will have their photo taken on Wednesday, with Thursday being available for those students who are not in school on Wednesday.

For our students participating in the teacher supported online learning program, if you would like your child to have their picture taken at the school you must complete this form. Additional information such as scheduling, entering and exiting the school etc. will be provided later in the week. Pictures for our online learners will be taken on Thursday, October 7th.

Parent/Student/Teacher Conferences – Wednesday, October 14th and Thursday, October 15th

For our in person learners, our conferences will be held virtually this year in order to continue to minimize the number of guests within our school. Your child’s teacher will provide instructions on how to sign up for an online interview time later this week.

For our Teacher Supported At Home Learners, more information will be coming soon on when these interviews will be taking place. Please stay tuned 🙂

Ecole Meridian Heights School Code of Conduct

As you can imagine, supporting positive behavior for over 600 kids ranging in age from 5 to 14 requires a lot of teamwork and cooperation between staff, students and our parents. While teachers reviewed student expectations at the start of the year and continue to do so throughout the year as necessary, we would ask you to please review the Code of Conduct with your child at home. It contains information on our expectations around appropriate behavior during class, recess and before and after school as well as information on our dress code, technology policies and much more.

Should you have any questions about our Code of Conduct, please do not hesitate to reach out to any member of our administration.

Daily Self-Screening

Thank you so much for your efforts to continue to keep all of our students safe during these unusual times. Please continue to support us at the school by completing the Covid 19 Screening Questionnaire each day prior to sending your child to school.

That’s a lot to take in, so thank you so much for making the time to know what’s happening in our learning community.

Stay well,

Mr. S. Patras
