Week at a Glance

Hello Storrington Stingers,

We continue to be amazed by our Stingers and how easily they have transitioned to our new expectations and protocols.  All our Stingers are doing an amazing job with wearing their masks, staying physically distanced, and following our handwashing/hand sanitizing routines.  We want to thank them for their diligence in keeping themselves and their peers safe and healthy.  We are looking forward to another great week and having all our Stingers attending together.  

Importance of Daily Screening

A friendly reminder to our parent community around the importance of screening your child every morning, before coming to school for the following Covid-19 related symptoms:



New or worsening cough

Barking cough

Shortness of breath

Sore throat

Difficulty swallowing

Runny, stuffy or congested nose

Lost sense of taste or smell

Pink eye

Headache that’s unusual or long-lasting

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

Muscle Aches

Extreme tiredness

Falling down often

Sluggishness or lack of appetite

If a child displays one or more of these symptoms, the school will be contacting parents to come and pick up their child and to take them to an assessment centre or their health care provider.

News from our Parent Council for the 2020-2021 School Year

Hi Stinger families,

We just wanted to let you know that we will be having our first parent council meeting on Tuesday, Sept 29th at 8:15 pm, virtually of course. 

We will be holding elections, so if you are interested in running for a  position, please submit your nomination to Brittany Smith at [email protected]

Available positions on the committee are:




Social Media Liaison

We will provide a brief description of what each position entails on our Facebook site. If you haven’t already joined, then please do.  We try to keep everyone as current as possible.


If you’re not interested in being an elected member, but would like to be more involved or see what we do, then please feel free to join.  If you have any questions at all, please ask. We will do our best to answer your questions as quickly as possible. 

We are still deciding on the virtual platform that works best for our meetings.  If you’re interested in participating on our parent council, please email [email protected] for an invitation to the meeting.  


Storrington Parent Council

Thank You to our Parent Council

On behalf of the staff and students at Storrington, we would like to thank our Storrington Parent Council for purchasing and providing Storrington Stinger fanny packs to all our students.  Students can use these fanny packs to store their masks when they go outside for recess or outdoor learning.  We are hoping that the fanny packs will be ready within the next couple of weeks and will be distributed to students before the end of September. 

Litterless Lunch

In being environmentally friendly and to reduce the amount of garbage in landfills, we ask that all students bring in a litterless lunch to school.  As well, in trying to reduce possible contact points between students, we will not be able to continue with our recycling program.  In looking for ways to limit our ecological footprint, please discuss with your child all the things that you can do to make their lunch more eco-friendly.
