New High School - In a few years, there will be a new high school built to replace Eastern Shore District High.
Until the end of November, the Halifax Regional Centre for Education is asking the community if the new school should also include Gaetz Brook Junior High students.
What do you think about this idea?
A reminder email has been sent to families today. We encourage you to both remind and join your family in sharing thoughts about this consolidation.
It only takes a couple of minutes. You have until the end of November to participate.
Our Community supports us, let’s do the same!
Thank you for being good neighbours and ensuring your garbage is not thrown in our community. Local businesses and citizens are awesome at supporting our breakfast program, O2, Co-op and various fundraisers. We need to show our thanks by being good neighbours too. Please take responsibility for your garbage, be mindful of noise/music, drive the 30km school zone limit and practice Covid health protocols to show your commitment to everyone’s wellness.
Staying Safe & Healthy as a Community is EVERYONE’s Responsibility
Practice physical distancing when outside and in areas that you can
Avoid bunching together (inside or out)
Wear a non-medical mask when you can’t physically distance
No matter where you are please practice the above. Especially when you are off school property at lunchtime or during a study/free period. Concerned community members are worried about you and contacting the school to remind our Schoons that in the community your choices impact us all!.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
