Welcome all new and returning students, families, and staff to another wonderful and safe year at Deninu School!
Dear Parents and Guardians,
I want to thank you very much for your continued support of Deninu School through our ongoing precautions around Covid-19. It isn't easy with all the restrictions, but we remain healthy and safe at this time. Your patience and tolerance continues to be a huge help.
We will continue to closely follow the requirements of the Chief Public Health Officer. Our teachers will maintain a warm, welcoming and safe learning environment as we move forward in educating our students with as little disruption as possible.
I would ask that you continue to talk to your children about our continued safety routines. These are:
frequently washing hands in soapy water
not touching eyes, nose and mouth
avoiding touching each other
staying home when sick
coughing into an elbow or tissue and then immediately disposing of the tissue and washing hands
using their own assigned materials only - crayons, pens, pencils, paper, etc.
staying physically distant from each other and not congregating or hanging out in groups
entering through the main doors of the school, being met and screened for potential illness, sanitizing hands and going directly to the classroom
always following the staff's safety directions
We will continue to rely on you to screen your children each morning for signs of illness, and keeping them home if so.
Our students will have the following start times:
JK - 7 - 8:30-12:00; afternoon, JK-7 - 1:00-3:30
Grades 8-12 -9:00 - 12:00 afternoon - 1:00-3:50
Northern Distance Learning - 8:55 - 12:00; afternoon - 1:00-3:50
If your child has an underlying medical condition that will keep her or him at home, please let us know as soon as you can. We will provide remote learning through Google Classroom, Zoom, and/or paper assignment packages.
Deninu School has a very caring, hardworking, and dedicated staff and we will do everything we can to maintain a welcoming school environment while practising our Covid-19 safety protocols.
