Student Safety: The safety of our students is our top priority. Last week, a student was injured in the gym after accidentally tripping into one of the windows. We are taking the necessary steps to ensure our school facilities remain safe for students including the following: The broken window has been boarded over, other similar windows have been inspected, the design and materials being used in our schools are being reviewed to ensure they are appropriate, and district staff are actively working to ensure this cannot happen again.
We share your concerns and thank you for your support.
Safe Arrival and Extended Absences: To report your child’s absence, please call 604-713-5159 ext. 39 prior to 9:15 am. If you know ahead of time that your child will be away from school, parents and guardians are encouraged to inform the School Office and the teacher. Notifying us in advance of your child’s absence will significantly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the Safe Arrival morning routine. If your child will be absent for an extended period, please send a note to the office. Thank you for your cooperation.
Early Dismissal Reminder: Students will be dismissed on Tuesday, March 6 and Thursday, March 8 at 2 pm (note non-consecutive days).
School Cash Online: We are pleased to announce that Jules Quesnel is back on an online payment system - School Cash Online: https://vsb.schoolcashonline.com. This is a safe, fast and convenient way for parents to pay for school fees and field trips. We will be placing fees for all upcoming field trips online and would appreciate your help in reducing the amount of cash and number of cheques coming into the school.
Tax Receipts for the JQ PAC Direct Donation: If you are at the school next Tuesday or Thursday for meetings/conferences, please drop by the office and pick-up your tax receipt. As you enter the office, they are located on your right in a box in alphabetical order by last name. Thank you.
Dance: This week, students have enjoyed dance lessons from instructors of DancePL3Y. This is one of the extra-activities, partly sponsored by PAC. DancePL3Y will be back for one more week from March 12 to 16.
Returning to Jules Quesnel – September 2018? Just a reminder to let the school know if your child WILL NOT BE returning to JQ in September 2018.
Basketball: Congratulations to all JQ basketball teams for a great season and thank you to all parents and teachers who helped coach or sponsor our teams. The Sr. Boys' team continues to play on Monday at Magee Secondary after winning their first game in the competitive tournament. Good luck!
