Important Information

Please scroll down for current information and for upcoming events. You can also check out our School Calendar and Daily Announcements under the "For Families" tab above.

Nuts, Sesame, Scents

Please do not bring nut (peanuts, tree nuts) or sesame (includes hummus which is made from sesame seeds) products into our school. There are students and staff at BA who have LIFE THREATENING ALLERGIES to these foods.
As well, be aware that we are a scent "sensitive" property as we have staff and students with severe scent sensitivities.

School Start Time

Instruction starts sharply at 8:25am for all students. We ask that students arrive no later than 8:20am so they have plenty of time to get prepared for their morning lessons. Students are welcome to enter the school at 8:05am.

Grades 6-9 Extra-Curicular Awards & Grade 9 Closing Tribute

June 5, 2020Dear Bluenose Academy Students, Parents, and Guardians:
We thank you for your time and patience as we navigate together the conclusion of our 2019-2020 school year. Usually, the month of June allows us to look back and remember the year while celebrating our students’ successes both in and outside the classroom. This year, however, we will not be able to come together as a school and/or community. Currently, the BA staff is working to create a Grade 9 Closing Tribute as well as an Extra-Curricular Awards Presentation (Grades 6-9 only) that will be shared with you on the following dates:
Thursday, June 25th - Extra-Curricular Awards for Grades 6-9 Friday, June 26th - Grade 9 Closing Tribute
We plan to celebrate the classroom awards for Grades 2-8 in September 2020 under the direction of Public Health.
Please note, any students who receive an award through the Extra-Curricular Awards or the Grade 9 Closing Tribute will receive these awards when we return to school in the Fall. If you are currently a Grade 9 student your award will be delivered to you at PVEC along with your yearbook.

Dear Bluenose Academy Students & Families,

Re: Returning and Picking up Items

Each student’s belongings have been “bagged and tagged” by homeroom teachers and will be available to pick up during the days and times below. All items will be distributed from the Galley by our school staff. Drop off of any classroom and library books, technology, textbooks, uniforms, etc. will take place at the same time. Band Instruments for Grades 6-8 will also be available for pick up at this time.
All families must access the building via the front entrance. Please use the Community Centre parking lot and walk to the front of the building. Specific walking paths will be marked accordingly outside and inside the building to ensure social distancing and limiting numbers. School access will be limited to a single student or family member. Please note that if you have multiple children in multiple grades choose the days/times that work best for you and you will be able to receive all your children’s belongings at the same time.

Dear Students & Families,
Since the announcement that formal learning will end on June 5th, we know there is considerable interest in retrieving your belongings from the school.
School staff is busy collecting student belongings and developing plans to ensure we can maintain Public Health protocols during this time. It is important to follow the guidelines for social distancing and allowing limited numbers in the building at a time.
We will be reaching out to families to give appointment dates to come to the school. Access will start the week of June 8th to coincide with the end of formal learning period. We know many of you have school items to return to the school as well (text books, novels, instruments/music, uniforms, etc.). This date will allow people to return these items following the learning period at the same time as picking up their belongings.
You will receive more information from us on the specific plans by the end of this week. We appreciate your patience as we work to finalize our plans. Please take care and stay safe.
Sincerely,Steven McGillPrincipal, Bluenose Academy
