School Policies

Birthdays
This is a time for your child to celebrate their birthday with classmates. It is our EC policy that parents are allowed to bring a healthy snack (fruit kebabs, popcorn, fruit cups etc) and/or cupcakes or mini doughnuts. Please, no cakes or treat bags.

You will need to make arrangements with your child’s teacher a week in advance for planning purposes. Unfortunately due to fire regulations, we are not allowed to light any candles and would also appreciate no birthday decorations or party horns.

We would also like you to know that siblings, cousins or friends from other classes may not join the class celebrations.

Toilet

Please find a copy of the school policy below:

We understand that occasional bathroom accidents do happen in school for any number of reasons. However it is expected that your child is 100% toilet trained by the time school starts.   All children must be able to:

 

  • pull up and down their own pants
  • wipe themselves independently
  • wash their own hands.

 

If a PreK or KG1 child repeatedly has accidents in their pants and a health issue has been ruled out, the child must stay at home for 2 weeks to master toileting skills.
