QEA e-Bulletin Week of February 25 2019


What beautiful sunshine we’ve been enjoying lately! Let’s hope it lasts.


This week, on Wednesday February 27th, we will be observing International Day of PINK! Students and staff are encouraged to wear pink and to think about what it means to be kind and to be a good friend. In keeping with this theme, and in alignment with our Code of Conduct and with our School Goal around Social/Emotional Learning, QEA will be having a mini Global School Play Day. Students are welcome to bring one or two toys or games to share with peers – the only requirement is that the toy or game must be battery/electricity free. There is no obligation to bring a toy/game - we have plenty here at the school. Following a brief assembly after lunch, students will be engaging in imaginative, unstructured play for the afternoon. There is more information about the importance of unstructured play in this Ted Talk.


Arriving Late & Leaving Early


Just a reminder that it is very important that you sign your child in should you arrive after 9:15 and that you sign your child out should you leave with your child prior to 3:00.


In the case of an emergency, we need to be able to account for everyone in the building and as we take attendance at 9:05, anyone arriving after this time who has not been signed in at the office will not be accounted for.


Additionally, if you have left with your child before 3PM and not signed them out, we will assume that that child is still on site and will have to account for them.


Thanks so much for your support with this important safety matter.


Procedures for Late Arrivals and Early Departures


Arriving after 9:15


·      Go to the office with your child and sign them in

·      Proceed to the classroom / gym / outdoors to join the teacher and other students

·      Please DO NOT send you child in unaccompanied if you have arrived after 9:15


Leaving before 3PM


·      Go the office and sign out your child

·      Proceed to the classroom / gym / outdoors to collect your child
