Carson Grove ES News - Week of October 23rd

We had a great week at school!  Students did well during our two fire drills this week and we’re confident they will continue to do well during the remaining fire drill and upcoming lockdown practice next week.

Late in the School Day Pick Up Requests

Recently, there have been a number of requests to pick students up from the office extremely close to the end of the day.  After 3:35pm, unless it’s an emergency, families will be asked to wait for the 3:45pm dismissal to pick up their children.  Students are getting ready to go home and it is very difficult to connect with classes in the final minutes of the day.  Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

Student Information Verification Forms

Student information verification forms were sent home recently.  Thank you very much to all families who returned them quickly.  It is very important for the school to have this information in case we need to contact you.  If you haven’t already done so, please check the information and then sign and return the form to school.

Halloween / Wear Black and Orange Day at Carson Grove - Tuesday, October 31st

Here is how we’re celebrating Halloween / Black and Orange Spirit Day at Carson Grove:

  • Students should come to school wearing their costumes.
  • Keep costumes simple and be sure that they can be taken on and off independently. For example, the one piece jumpsuit-style costumes are very challenging for students to remove when going to the washroom, especially for our youngest students.
  • Instead of wearing a costume, wear orange and/or black if a costume is “too much for school” or if your family does not dress in costumes for Halloween
  • Incorporate daily use face masks into costume designs
  • Leave extra costume accessories at home.  Items that need to be held in a hand or worn on heads, including full masks, are a bit too much for school.
  • As a Kindergarten to grade 5 school, we ask that very scary costumes or makeup should only be worn at home in the evening.
  • Be allergy aware.  Please do not send in class treats or goody bags for classmates.  The gesture is appreciated, but these items from home are not permitted at school.

Please contact the office or your child’s teacher if you have any questions or need some clarification.
