SAFE ARRIVAL #464-5266


A friendly reminder to parents and guardians of George Bissett that the parking lot should not be used after 8:00 a.m. when dropping off students to Excel or waiting for the 8:10 bell.  Parents and Guardians wishing to drop off their children can still do so from Arklow and enter the school ground from either the path or the entry in the fence. We kindly remind all students, as well as parents, to use the crosswalk at all times.  Thank you for your attention in this safety matter.

SCHOOL CLOSURES


School closures will be announced on the radio and on the HRSB website by 6:30 am unless, of course, school is closed through the school day. If school is closed through the day, the announcement will be made by 11:00 a.m. The closures will be announced by feeder school: we are a “feeder school” for Cole Harbour High. 
    


SCHOOL IS OUT FOR THE SUMMER!! 



We wish you all a wonderful and safe summer vacation.
 
Best of luck to the Grade 6's moving on to Junior High, and for the rest of you, we'll see you all back in September.

The MedicAlert Foundation Canada is a charitable organization which is the leading provider of emergency medical information services linked to customized medical bracelets and necklaces. We are pleased to be able to offer MedicAlert memberships to students (from age 4 to their 14th birthday) through the No Child Without program in select schools. The financial support of the Government of Canada and Lions Clubs allows students to receive the MedicAlert membership for FREE.
