Week at a Glance

Hello Storrington Stingers,

 

We hope that all our Stingers are staying well and healthy. 

 

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


Digital Acceptable Use and Freedom of Information Form

All Limestone District School Board families are required to fill out a Digital Acceptable Use and Freedom of Information form for each of their children who attend Storrington.  


The LDSB is committed to providing and maintaining safe and appropriate environments conducive to learning and working for all.  The Digital Acceptable Use form outlines and defines the expectations for appropriate student use of technology devices and the internet.  


As well, the LDSB, under the authority of the Education Act, as amended, collects personal information about each student from both the student and his/her parent(s) or guardian(s). The Board is proud of our students and their achievements; however, in order for us to release personal information about students and/or their achievements, and for other administrative purposes, parent/guardian consent is required to comply with the provisions of the Municipal Freedom of Information & Protection of Privacy Act. 


To access the form, please visit: Digital Acceptable Use and Freedom of Information Form 


School Photo Orders and Retakes

School photo orders are due back to the school on Wednesday, October 20.  Our photo retake day is scheduled for Wednesday, October 27.  


Storrington Cross Country Team

On Thursday, October 14, our Storrington Cross Country team competed in the Cross Country Regional Championships at Fort Henry Hill. All of our Stingers did an amazing job representing Storrington and many of them qualified for the Cross Country District Championships on Thursday, October 21.  Good luck Stingers.


Storrington Spirit Wear

A reminder that Spirit Wear order forms are due to the school by Friday, October 22nd to ensure that clothing is delivered before the Christmas holidays.  


Reporting Your Child’s Absence- COVID Related Absence

When reporting your child’s absence, there is a new absence code that should be used if the absence is COVID-related.  Please use the code, “COVID Related”, when:

-your child is sick with COVID-19 symptoms and are going for COVID testing 

-your child is waiting for the results of the COVID test

-you have decided to self-isolate your child for 10 days


Importance of Daily Screening

A friendly reminder to our school community around the importance of screening your child every morning using the COVID-19 School & Child Care Screening Tool.   


Prior to students attending school, please assess for the following Covid-19 related symptoms:

Fever and/or Chills

New or worsening cough

Barking cough

Shortness of breath

Decrease or loss of taste or smell

Digestive issues (nausea/vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain)


If a child displays one or more of these symptoms, the school will be contacting parents to come and pick up their child.  Your child and their siblings will have to go home and self-isolate until:

-they receive a negative Covid test result, or

-they receive an alternative diagnosis from a health care professional, or

-it has been 10 days since their symptom onset.
