EJPS Week at a Glance (April 3-7)

Chers parents,

I want to start by saying that I fully understand and can appreciate how upsetting and concerning it was to receive the message yesterday morning regarding general online threats made towards Guelph schools. As you’ve heard in board communication updates the police have determined that the treats were not credible. Regardless, I want to reassure you that we continue to make student safety a priority here at EJPS. The front doors will continue to be locked during most of the day except for short high traffic times when parents drop off or pick up students. The entrance will be monitored at those times. Please know that our first priority is always student and staff safety and I am always available to answer any questions you may have. 

In other news, April is already here! As you can see from the important dates below our calendar is filling up quickly. Please mark these dates on your own calendar and please check for changes and updates in the coming weekly emails. If your child is in JK/SK, Grade 2 and Grade 4, there will be dental screening offered by Public Health on 19 and 21. Please see the form attached.
