Class Lists/First Day of School
The first day of school for the 2018-2019 school year is Tuesday, September 4, 2018. School starts at 8:30am (warning bell at 8:25am) and you will find out who your teacher is at that time. Class lists will be posted in the gym that morning. Class lists will not be available before this time.
Once school begins in September, students may be dropped off at the playground anytime after 8:15 am, as outside supervision is provided at that time. At the 8:25am bell, students will make their way to their classrooms. Parents, you are welcome to join your children for the initial entry to his/her classroom, but following that, we will be carrying on with our regular school day.
The school day for students ends at 3:30pm Monday-Thursday and 11:30am on Fridays. For the first couple of days, you are welcome to accompany your child to and from his/her class. Once your child has settled into a routine, we would appreciate all parents wait in the bootrooms or outside when picking up your child, as this makes it easier to finish our day without disruptions. This is a great opportunity to arrange for a specific meeting place for your child(ren) to avoid confusion at the end of the day!
If your child takes the bus, please be ready for his/her arrival at the nearest bus stop to your home. The bus routes and times for the 2018-2019 school year will be available on the Lethbridge School District web site http://www.lethsd.ab.ca/Routes.php a few days before school starts. The Lethbridge Transit link provides all pick-up and drop off locations and times, as well as printable maps to assist you. Feel free to contact the district’s transportation coordinator (403-380-5303), or the school (403-381-1244) if you require more information.
