It’s back to school season! We are excited to welcome and welcome back all students and families to the Upper Grand. To help make the transition back to school smoother for our students and families, we are sharing a website with information about back to school.
On August 30, 2022 from 1 PM to 4 PM, registration will open online for parents and guardians to register their child to their home elementary school.
As the next municipal elections approach on October 24, 2022, the Upper Grand District School Board is seeking nominations for school board trustees for the 2022-2023 school year. School Board Trustees have a big impact on shaping the education system for Upper Grand students. The UGDSB is looking for individuals who can ‘re-engage, re-fresh, and re-imagine’ the best education system for the students in our community.
The UGDSB is continuing to use the online report card system for the 2021-22 school year.
If you previously accessed our Electronic Report Card system this year, no action is required at this time. If your email address has changed, please contact your school office coordinator.
The 2022 Long Term Accommodation Plan (LTAP) Annual Review Report was approved at the Board Meeting of the Upper Grand District School Board on May 24, 2022. This purpose of this report is to review updated data and any other changes affecting accommodation. It is necessary for staff to monitor the relevance of the Board’s work plan priorities. The LTAP review report also provides the status of the 5-year work plan priorities identified for 2018-2022.
As a result of Monday’s earlier power outage, we have been notified that our school does not have running water at this time. Board staff will be onsite first thing tomorrow morning to address the issue, however the school will likely be without water for the majority of the school day on Tuesday. As such, East Garafraxa PS students are asked to shift to remote learning for Tuesday May 17. Staff and educators will support students through their Google Classroom environment.
We wanted to make you make you aware of a situation at our school. Today, the power went off at the school. This outage affected multiple areas of our school building and parts of the school neighbourhood.
