Jr/Sr. High Trips to RECC

In an effort to promote healthy living, PDHS will be providing a trip Monday, December 15th for our Jr. High students and Wednesday, December 17th for our Sr. High students.

Students will be bused to the Rath Eastlink Community Centre in Truro (http://www.ratheastlinkcommunitycentre.ca/) where they will have the opportunity to both skate (helmets required) and swim.  There is also a walking track as an alternative activity for students.

 

The cost for this trip will be covered by the school; however, lunch is the responsibility of students. 

 

Permission Forms were provided to students today and are to be returned Wednesday.  Jr. students are to return forms to their Homeroom teachers and Sr. students are asked to return their forms to the Main office.

The information letters for both Jr. and Sr. High are attached.

Permission Forms for both the Jr. and Sr. High trips are attached.

Snow Days - School Cancellation

Winter Weather is Coming!

The days are getting colder and with each dip in the thermometer we move one step closer to winter weather: icy roads, snow and freezing rain. For CCRSB schools, winter weather means the potential closure of schools when conditions are considered unsafe for our students and staff.

Decisions regarding school cancellations are made by CCRSB’s Operational Services Department and generally happen in the early morning (before 6:30 am) or mid-day. We try our best not to have mid-day cancellations, but sometimes an unexpected change in the weather makes the decision for us. In those cases, it is important that our schools have the most up-to-date contact information for parents and guardians, and that parents and guardians have alternative arrangements in place for their children, before a cancellation takes place.

Mid-day cancellations can also be complicated by busing. Many buses in CCRSB transport students to and from multiple schools, in a set order. This same order of pick-up and drop-off will still apply in the case of a mid-day cancellation. So, though schools may close at 10:00 am, for example, students may not be dropped off until an hour or more later, depending on where their school is on the regular pick-up and drop-off order.

Whether first thing in the morning, or mid-day, cancellations due to weather conditions will be announced in several ways:

  • The “All Schools Open” button on the CCRSB home page (www.ccrsb.ca) changes to red. By clicking on the button, you can get closure information specific to our Family of Schools.
  • A message regarding the cancellation is posted to the CCRSB home page under “News”; to the CCRSB Facebook page (www.facebook.com/ChignectoCRSB); and to our Twitter feed (@ChignectoCRSB).
  • Information is sent to all local radio and television stations within the CCRSB, including CBC radio in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island and CFCY radio in Charlottetown.

CCRSB thanks all parents, guardians and students for their patience and understanding as we move through the start of the winter season. Please know that all decisions regarding cancellations are made with great care for the safety of students and staff.

Social Media Reminders

At the Chignecto-Central Regional School Board (CCRSB) we consider our website, Facebook and Twitter accounts a digital extension of our physical offices.

These tools give us the means and opportunity to reach more students, parents, and guardians at one time than any other communication tool. We also know that more and more students, parents and guardians rely on the Internet and social media sites to gather information important to them. With this in mind, it is important to remember some basic tenets of responsible and respectful use.

All CCRSB schools abide by the Code of Conduct. The Code of Conduct calls on all members of the CCRSB community to be respectful, kind and understanding to each other. These same basic ideas should be applied when using the Internet and social media websites. (You can read CCRSB’s Code of Conduct on our website at www.ccrsb.ca, click on “Document Depot,” “Education Services”.)

Emergency Preparedness Drills

We know that some parents feel uneasy about the Emergency Preparedness Drills and why they must be practiced. This letter is intended to provide clarification.

Course Communication Plans

Course Communication Plan descriptions can be found in the Public Portal (https://sisccrsb.ednet.ns.ca/public/) by selecting one of your child's courses.

Provincial Report Card Changes

The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) have made some changes to the provincial report cards.

The DEECD has provided parents/guardians with the following information regarding these changes:
