Welcome to Macphail Memorial elementary School

Hello again Tiger families,

I'm sorry to have not been in touch.  We've been having some technical glitches with our communication tools.  We're hopeful that this will be remedied sooner rather than later.

I'm sure you're wondering what next week is going to look like.  This week, we will be sending out a parent information booklet to help clarify some common questions and concerns.  In it will be information related to the staggered entry, changes that have been made to drop off and pick up, and bits of odds and ends information amongst many other things.  Please know that any changes are entirely related to safety.

On Thursday, teachers will be reaching out to their students.  This will be done through phone or email.  They will be relaying information about what class and  zone students are in to aid with spacing on the yard.  If you have not heard from your child's teacher by Thursday evening, please contact the school on Friday.

In an attempt to help with hygiene, students are encouraged, but not expected, to bring their own pencil case with supplies (pencils, pens, rulers, coloring supplies, eraser, scissors, glue).  This would remain at school so please do your best to label.  The school will supply anything that is necessary but if you are able to send your child with these basic supplies, it would help add to each child's layer of protection.  These layers are very important- if one spot falters, there is a back- up plan!  Students in grades 4-8 will have masks, we have increased hand washing, cohorts have been created, distancing is happening, there will be zones on the yard, we've changed entry and exit procedures....  We've got this!

Together we really are stronger.  I'm excited to meet your child(ren) and get to know you.  Day 1 will be here before we know it!  Be well.  Stay well.  Sue Crysler, Principal
