Information Sharing Agreement with Department of Health and Wellness


Annually, students across Nova Scotia are offered services delivered by Public Health including the Grade 7 School Immunization Program, Pre-school Screening, Enhanced Vision Screening Program and the Fluoride Mouthrinse Program. Public Health works with the education system to distribute information about these programs and to obtain consent for student participation. 

Occasionally, Public Health practitioners may need to contact parents/guardians of students where consent information is incomplete or unclear, or when a consent form has not been returned. Public Health will not contact you if you have signed a consent form indicating you do not wish to have your child participate in one of these programs. The school board will share limited information such as names of parents/guardians and students, with Public Health for the purposes of operating these public health services for students.

Please contact your local public health office if you have any questions about these public health programs. Please contact your principal or Centre for Education information access and privacy manager, if you have any questions about how your information is shared.

No Peanut/Nut Products or Imitation Peanut Butter Permitted


           Reporting Students Abscences

To prevent Powerschool from sending you a notice that your child is not in school, please ensure you phone 562-8878 prior to 9am if your child will be late or not attending classes.

School Cancellation Due to Inclement Weather

A message will be sent to you by text, email and/or home phone.  It is important that we have up-to-date contact information in Powerschool.  Please notify the office if your contact information changes.

Parents/guardians should ensure that alternate arrangements have been made for their children. When school is cancelled, all co-curricular, extra-curricular and community education activities scheduled for that day are also cancelled.


Peanut-Free School

Shipyard Elementary is a Peanut and Tree Nut Alert School.  Please refrain from sending peanut/nut products, as we have students who are severely allergic.    We are asking parent/guardian(s) to refrain from sending the imitation peanut butter called “WOW” Peanut Butter; as this may send a mixed message to students in thinking that peanut butter/products are allowed.   

Boston Pizza Receipts

Parent(s)/Guardian(s) are reminded to have your Boston Pizza receipt placed in the box at the checkout at Boston Pizza.  A 10%%donation of all receipts will be donated to our school.  There are a number of schools taking advantage of this fundraiser, so please make sure your write “Shipyard Elementary School” on your receipt.  

Thank you for supporting your school.
