School Cancellation Information
For school cancellations, please listen to CKBW, check out the South Shore Regional School Board webpage at www.ssrsb.ca, or follow SSRSB on twitter @SouthshoreRSB.
Tips for families during the winter months from the South Shore Regional School Board:
If there is any question that school may be cancelled, listen to CKBW, HANK FM, CBC Radio, AVR/Magic 97, QCCR and Global Halifax between 6:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. Follow SSRSB on Twitter for all up-to-date closure announcements. The SSRSB Twitter feed can be seen on the SSRSB website home page without having a subscription. Do not drop-off your child at school unless you are certain that school is open. Make alternate arrangements for your child in case school is closed during the day. Ensure your child and/or the teacher is aware of these arrangements. If your child is in P-3, please ensure your child’s teacher has written instruction regarding where your child should go if neither you nor the emergency contact can be reached by the telephone tree.
Leaving School Property
As a reminder, all students are expected to stay on school property during school hours unless they have a parent/guardian come to the school to sign them out. This includes lunchtime. If a parent/guardian would like to pick up their child for lunch they may do so by coming to the office and signing the student out and then signing them back in prior to classes resuming.

BRICKS FOR HAITI
Did you know that fewer than 30% of children in Haiti ever reach Grade 6? Did you know that the overall literacy rate in Haiti is only around 50%?
Bluenose Academy’s Social Justice Group is focusing on fighting for this very important global cause. They believe that all children have a right to an education, and that education is power.
The Social Justice Group is working towards building a school in Haiti. They are currently selling ‘bricks’ for $20.00 each to make the construction of this school come to life!
If you wish to contribute to this social justice project, please drop by the office to make your donation now.
Bluenose Academy’s Social Justice Group, Mrs. Elliott, and Ms. Smith
