Information on Hand-Foot-Mouth Disease & other illnesses

Hello QEA Families,

 

We currently have quite a large number of students with a variety of illness, including one case of Hand-Foot-and-Mouth Disease, other colds and flu. I am attaching the VCH Publication that details a variety of illness and treatments.


For our part, QEA is increasing the frequency of cleaning 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 model frequent hand-washing among students.

As parents, we are asking that if your child is showing signs of active illness as detailed in the publication, please consider keeping them home until such time as they are able to participate actively during the school day.


Please contact the office if you require any further information.

NEW ONLINE PAYMENT SYSTEM COMING TO THE VSB

Dear parents and guardians,

 

Your 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 have contracted with a new supplier to offer greater flexibility and better economy for the entire district.

 

This new system will be ready for use on February 26, and we hope you’ll find it even easier to use to accept online payment for field trips and other fees.

 

Please note that the current online payment system will be cut off on January 26. That 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 is complete by January 26. As there is a one-month gap before the new system is ready for use, if you need to pay the school during that month, you will have to pay via cheque.

 

Thank you for your understanding during this transition. We are sure you’ll find the new 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 February.

 

Sincerely,

 

Lisa Landry

Assistant Secretary Treasurer​
