Hello Norseman families,
We are down to single digits in our countdown to the end of the school year. The month of June has absolutely flown by!
Retrieval of Belongings
Earlier this week, you received information regarding the retrieval of belongings from the school. The schedule was organized using the last names of families, so that we are able to spread out the number of people coming to the school during each timeframe.
(*grade 8 students have made alternate arrangements with their teachers)
The schedule is as follows:
Thursday June 24 9:00 – 11:30 a.m. – Last names beginning with A – D
Friday June 25 9:00 – 11:30 a.m. – Last names beginning with E – K
12:00 – 3:00 p.m. – Last names beginning with L – O

Tuesday June 29 9:00 – 11:30 a.m. – Last names beginning with S – U
12:30 – 3:00 p.m. – Last names beginning with V - Z
When you arrive at the school at your designated time, please:
- conduct self-screening measures
- enter and exit through the front doors
- use hand sanitizer and wear a mask
- respect all physical distancing requirements, staying at least 6 feet away from others
- drop off any items at the entry (include your child’s name, teacher and list of items returned)
- retrieve belongings from classroom quickly
- put any garbage in the bins provided
- exit school property promptly
Remember to bring a bag!
If someone else will be picking up on your behalf, please let the school know. Non-essential items, such as notebooks and pencils, that are not picked up will be discarded. Clothing and personal items will be packed up and stored until the fall.
Returning borrowed Technology
Any borrowed technology, including laptops, iPads, charger cords, or Chromebooks must be returned to the school on Wednesday June 30 or Friday July 2 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. If you are leaving early for the summer, please return it to the school on any school day before the end of the school year.
TD Summer Reading Club
The TD Summer Reading Club is Canada’s biggest, bilingual summer reading program for kids of all ages, interests, and abilities. This free Club is offered at all of our Toronto Public Library branches. The Club celebrates Canadian authors, illustrators, and stories, and inspires kids to explore the fun of reading their way, with the goal of building a lifelong love of reading. Kids can visit a Toronto Public Library branch to pick up their free reading kit to track their reading. The TD Summer Reading Club kids website will go live on June 15 at tdsummerreadingclub.ca
