Hello QEA Families,
We currently have quite a large number of students with

and sanitizing of common areas.These areas are already cleaned regularly but we will be increasing the daily frequency of cleaning.
As a staff, we are continuing to encourage and

signs of active illness as detailed in the publication, please consider keeping

Just a reminder that the busses leave at 9:05 sharp!

Also, please have your child bring a small snack that fits in their pocket.

parents and guardians,
child’s school has been part of the Vancouver School District’s first wave of
schools to offer the ability to make payments online for field trip costs and
other fees. As we prepare to roll out online payments to other VSB schools, we

easier to use to accept online payment for field trips and other fees.

means there will be a one-month gap where no online payments can be accepted. If
you have any outstanding fees and you want to pay online, please ensure payment

ready for use, if you need to pay the school during that month, you will have

payment system easy to use. Your school will of course provide detailed
instructions on use of the new system once it is ready to be implemented in
For students in Division 1 (Mme Joëlle) & Division 4 (M Curtis & Mme Irene), the Mid-Year reports will be sent home at the end of next week.
For students in Division 3, as Mme Elodie will be away from the 24th until the the 30th of Janaury, students in her class will receive their report cards on Friday, February 2nd.
For Division 2, as Mme Chantal will be away for a few more weeks, we do not yet have a date for when her reports will be ready. Once we know, we will pass that information on to families.
If you have any questions, please contact Mme Teresa.
Well, Flu Season is well upon us.
We have several students and staff currently ill with the flu. Just a reminder that if your child is showing any signs of the flu (nausea, vomitting, fever, listlessness, etc), the best place for them is at home, not at school.
