A Return to Norseman

Return to School Part 2

Good afternoon Norseman families!

We continue to work towards our school opening and wanted to give you some more information.

Staggered first day of school
All students will not start school on the same day as in previous years.However, once a student has started school, they will continue attending. Start dates are as follows:

  • Tuesday September 15th – Students in Senior Kindergarten, Grade 4 and Grade 8
  • Wednesday September 16th – Students in Junior Kindergarten, Grade 1 and Grade 7
  • Thursday September 17th – Students in Grades 2, 3, 5 and 6

Before the first day of school, parents/caregivers will receive an email indicating the name of the teacher and the location of the meeting place on the first day.Parents are required to leave the school property as soon as they have connected the student with their teacher.

Our entry and dismissal times have not changed.
JK/SK – 8:25 a.m. entry and 2:50 p.m. dismissal
Gr. 1-5 – 8:25 a.m. entry and 3:05 p.m. dismissal
Gr. 6-8 – 8:25 a.m. entry and 2:54 p.m. dismissal

Recess breaks will be staggered to ensure students can physically distance outside.

We are waiting for more information about our staffing before we can determine our timetable, including recess and lunch times.These details will be shared as soon as we can!There will be no rotary (students moving from classroom to classroom for different subjects). Students will remain with their homeroom teacher for most subjects, with the exception of some specialty subjects (e.g., French) where the teacher will come to the classroom to deliver the program.

Along with masks, students are welcome to bring their own hand sanitizer (fragrance-free).

Thank you for your patience during these trying times. We will communicate again soon.

Take care and stay safe,
Carolyn Wright
