Welcome to

Bluenose Academy!

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.

End of Year Celebrations

Thursday, June 10th, 2021

Dear Bluenose Academy Families,

We thank you for your time and patience as we continue to navigate together the conclusion of our 2020-2021 school year. Once again, COVID-19 has significantly impacted the wonderful June traditions we have always enjoyed at Bluenose Academy. Due to the Health and Safety protocols we are unable to have any in-person ceremonies or celebrations. Therefore, our BA staff is working diligently to create FIVE year end video presentations to celebrate the accomplishment of our students and bring the school year to an end. If all goes as expected, the videos will be viewed at school with our students first on the dates below, and then be made available for viewing by the families on the same day via our school website.

Extra-Curricular Awards (Grades 6-9) -- Monday, June 21st, 2021

Band Pop Concert -- Friday, June 25th, 2021

Updated COVID-19 information from the Regional Centre

April 26th, 2021

COVID-19 Update April 26, 2021

There were a number of new restrictions announced at today’s COVID-19 provincial briefing. Beginning immediately, the community use of schools is suspended until further notice and any event between two or more schools is cancelled. SSRCE schools are still currently permitted to have afterschool practices/intramurals only.

Currently, SSRCE’s schools remain open for in-person learning. According to a number of health experts, in-person schooling remains the best place for children’s social, emotional, physical and mental well-being. With that said, we remain prepared to make the switch to an at home learning model, should we be directed to do so by Public Health.

Understandably, this is an anxious time. Please know, if there’s a case of COVID-19 identified in any of our schools, Public Health will advise us immediately and the school community will then be contacted.

Families who choose to keep their children home will not be receiving special at home work packages. If work is available through google classrooms as part of the teacher’s regular routines, students may access these learning materials. If parents are looking to keep their children home on a long-term basis, they should refer to Nova Scotia’s Office of Homeschooling.

We thank you for your ongoing cooperation.
