Week at a Glance

Hello Storrington Stingers,

I hope that this email continues to find you all well and healthy. We are eagerly anticipating an announcement from the provincial government and are very hopeful that we can return to face-to-face learning so that we can see all our Stingers!

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


Remote Learning Update 

We currently don’t have a scheduled date for return to face-to-face learning.  We expect that the provincial government will make an announcement soon indicating the school plans for the rest of the school year.  All updates and information will be shared with our school community.  


Pride Month

During the month of June, we will celebrate Pride Month.  Not only is this a time to recognize the achievements and contributions of LGBTQ2S+ communities but to also reflect on our own impact in creating a safe and inclusive environment where everyone feels welcomed and has a place.  During the month of June, students at Storrington will be learning more about the importance of the month.  We will also be flying the rainbow flag in recognition of the month.  


PA Day- Friday, June 4

A reminder that Friday, June 4, is a PA Day.  There is no school or virtual meetings on Friday.
