General Announcements:
Thank you for your diligence with mask wearing, Schoons!  Please focus on taking social distance space whenever possible. On break or lunch, please get some fresh air but when the mask is off outdoors, you are expected to practice 6 feet or 2 metres distance. This is truly important to keep our numbers low and to ensure everyone’s health and comfort is respected. Keep sanitizing those hands every time you walk through to a new space and before and after you eat. We want every Schoon to be kind while being safe - our community’s good health is everyone’s responsibility!
Extra help with Mrs. Evans Math 10 is Thursday at lunch from 12:10 to 12:40.

School Information:
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.
