Week at a Glance

Hello Storrington Stingers,


We hope that all of our Stingers had a great weekend and are well and healthy.

 

Please see the information below in this week’s Week at a Glance.  

 

National Indigenous Peoples Day

Tuesday, June 21st is National Indigenous Peoples Day.  It is a day dedicated to commemorating and celebrating Indigenous cultures, traditions and customs. We will recognize the importance of this day through classroom activities and school announcements 

 

Show Your True Colours Day

In recognizing Pride month, we want our Stingers to show their True Colours, as we celebrate the impact and achievements of the LGBTQS2+ communities in creating change and acceptance where everyone has the freedom to be themselves.  On Monday, June 20, our Stingers are encouraged dress in their favourite colour or colours for True Colours Day.  Together, we can work towards an inclusive and positive school environment!   


Storrington Ultimate Frisbee Team

Storrington’s Ultimate Frisbee team played amazingly well during our first ultimate tournament this past Thursday.  They played 4 games and won 2 of their games.  The entire team enjoyed the Spirit Circle at the end of each game and got comfortable with receiving and giving compliments.  

 

Children’s Safety Courses

Great news for Seeley's Bay area boys and girls! Home Alone Safety for Kids (ages 9-12) will be upstairs at the Fire Hall, 151 Main St on Monday, July 11th from 9am-3pm. Red Cross Babysitter Training (ages 11 and up) will be in the same location on Wednesday, July 13, 9am-4pm. Both courses teach street smarts, stranger danger, safe snacking, internet/fire safety and first aid, and babysitter training expands on those skills by learning how to keep other children safe, including an intro to CPR as well as how to use an epi-pen and asthma inhaler. Each course is instructed by CPR/First Aid instructor Colleen Cameron and costs $60pp which includes a take home workbook. Please register by calling TLTI at 613 659 2415 Ext 228 or TEXT Colleen at 613 498 4415 to save a limited spot. Confirmation and reminder notices will be sent out prior to the day of training.

Covid 19 Health Protocols

The provincial screening tool has been further amended to align with federal requirements, and to take into account different vaccination circumstances.  The screening tool will advise on any isolation requirements for your particular situation.

-If a household member has tested positive and your child is not fully vaccinated (2 doses) they must also self-isolate.

-If a household member has tested positive and your child is fully vaccinated and has no symptoms, they must wear a mask for 10 days.

-Upon return of a positive test and after 5 days of isolation, students and staff must wear a mask in all public settings for Day 6 to 10.

-If you have returned from international travel in the last 14 days, you must wear a mask for 14 days in all public settings.
