Principal's Update (March 27th, 2018):

Dear Parents and Guardians:

On Friday, March 16th, I informed you that we have been made aware that there is commentary in our school community about inappropriate social media comments pertaining to our school. I would like to remind you once again that all information we have received on this matter has been provided to the police who have investigated the complaint.

The RNC, in response to the misinformation circulating through social media, posted on their Facebook Page the following statement:

"We would like to provide some clarification to misinformation that has been circulating on social media, particularly in school communities.

Recently, the RNC was contacted regarding a post made on a social media application that stated there was a firearms threat at a school in Conception Bay South on a specific date. The individual who had allegedly seen this post was not able to provide police with a copy and stated its origins were unknown. Investigators with RNC’s Major Crime Unit conducted a thorough investigation following this complaint and have not been able to find any evidence to confirm the validity of this threat. We have been in regular contact with the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District as well as the school’s administrators and have shared our findings. Rumours have been spread throughout the community through social media that have caused fear and panic to parents and students.

We caution you to share only information on social media that you know to be true and from a trusted source. The following is the accurate information contrary to the misinformation that has been spread by students on Snap Chat and other social media sites.

*This investigation stemmed only from a single complaint and no other complaints were made;

*There have been no arrests in this matter;

*There is no evidence to believe there is a threat to any specific school.

*There are currently no suspects and we have conducted interviews with potential witnesses;

*No weapons have been found at or near any schools in connection with this investigation.

We have no evidence to suggest that the students involved made a false complaint; however, this is an excellent opportunity to remind students that making a false complaint of any threat to a school is a very serious criminal matter that may result in criminal charges. The RNC takes any complaint of this nature very seriously and will continue to monitor the situation as well as provide extra police presence in some school areas.

The RNC encourages anyone who has information in relation to this investigation to call 729-8000. Lastly, we are asking parents to discuss this post with their children as well as take time to learn about the social media applications that their children are using."

With the Easter Break fast approaching, we’d like to focus on teaching and learning for the next two days and not be side-tracked by rumours and gossip similar to what transpired last week. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me.


Sincerely,


Wayne Rodgers

Principal

Message from Manuels River Centre re. Senior Prom

Over the past several years, Manuels River – both outside and inside the Centre – has been a popular place for high school graduation photos.

Unfortunately, this year on Queen Elizabeth Regional High School's graduation day Friday, May 25, all rooms in the Centre are booked for other events. This means that the interior of the Centre – both rooms and common spaces - will not be available for taking photos.

Students and their families and friends are more than welcome to take photos outside the Centre and along the river and our washrooms will be accessible. However, we ask students to not use the washrooms as clothing change rooms.

Last year there were incidents of students releasing balloons and throwing confetti during photo sessions along the river. As an organization with a mandate for environmental conservation, we ask that students refrain from releasing materials that cause pollution or negatively impact wildlife and natural habitat.

We kindly ask that you pass on this notice to your faculty, staff, students and parents.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Thank you,

Alicia Legge

Student Parking Concerns

March 5, 2018

We are addressing some student parking concerns we have. First, the student parking lot can be congested at times, especially when we have a heavy snowfall and parking is limited. To address this, we have allowed some students to park along the soccer field as an overflow section. Since we started this, we have experienced a significant number of issues. Some students continue to park in the area of the soccer field clearly marked with No Parking Signs and some students are driving the wrong way in front our school. One reason we ask students not to park next to the end of the soccer field is so they will not interfere with the flow of traffic and any buses that may be called throughout the day. Students are parking along the fence even though there is plenty of parking available in the student parking lot. What we thought would be a solution to help students so they could bring their vehicles onto school property has actually become a nuisance. Please discuss with your child that parking their vehicles on school property is a privilege and not a right. Transportation is provided for all students attending our school.


Today, we are installing concrete barriers so that students can clearly see the limits of the overflow parking area. We are also installing signage to the entrance of the student parking lot so there is no confusion as to where students are expected to park. Any students who continue to defy our parking expectations will not be permitted to bring their vehicles onto school property or may be subject to other forms of school discipline including but not limited to suspensions.


Thank you for your support in this matter.

REMINDER: VIDEO SURVEILLANCE

Pursuant to https://www.nlesd.ca/includes/files/policies/doc/1456152390765.pdf, all students and parents are reminded that our school has video surveillance cameras throughout our school. Each area under surveillance is clearly marked. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call the school and ask to speak to either the Principal or Assistant Principal.

Video Surveillance Notification

As per District Policy, this message is simply to inform you that our school has a video surveillance system and that this system is in operation 24/7. All areas under video surveillance are clearly marked with signage.

Reporting Absenteeism

Please send an email containing the date your child is/was absent and the reason to our NEW email address: qe-attendance@nlesd.ca

Thank you, Wayne Rodgers - Principal
