Week at a GlanceHello 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.  

Covid-19 Screening Protocols and Family Reference Guide
Please take the time to complete the COVID-19 School Screening Tool, each morning, prior to your child attending school. If your child is feeling unwell, they must remain at home and depending on symptoms, may require a COVID-19 assessment.  
The online COVID-19 School Screening Tool is linked off the Board and all school websites and is available at https://covid-19.ontario.ca/school-screening/

Storrington Spirit Wear Orders
A reminder that Storrington spirit wear orders are due to the school on Friday, October 23.  If you are placing an order, please ensure the order form and money are returned in a Ziploc bag by Friday.

New Opt-In/Opt-Out Dates
Recently, the LDSB has provided messaging regarding new opt-in/opt-out dates for remote/in-class learning.  Elementary families who wish to move students from in-person to remote learning OR remote learning to in-person learning, must provide notice by October 29, 2020 at 3:00 PM. To do this, families must contact their student’s home school. Once numbers are known, staffing will be arranged with class start-up scheduled for the week of November 9, 2020.

Indigenous Education Month
The month of November is Indigenous Education Month.  During the month, we will be taking the time to learn and deepen our understanding of Indigenous history, cultures and traditions.
