Dear Mustang Families, 

What a day it was back at school! Students were excited to be back and eager to learn and make new friends. Routines are quickly being established and students are settling into the rhythm of a new school year already. Thanks for all that you are doing to support this. I am sure many kids will be tired tonight.  

Each week, I will send a short email update about news at Princess Margaret Public School. You can also follow our school Twitter feed: @margaret_ps . We update our website regularly as well: . Staying connected during the school year is key.

Attendance/ Lates/ All Visitors:

If your child is not going to be at school, please call our school office and report the absence on our attendance line. Please also do this if your child is going to be late. If you are coming into the school, please check in with the office. All visitors must check in with the office and are not permitted to walk the hallways. Although your own child knows you, strangers in the building can be unsettling for our students. Thanks for your understanding. 

Parking Lot: 

We are kindly asking parents and guardians to park off school property at the beginning and end of the school day. We have limited parking and need to keep our fire/ bus line clear of vehicles at all times. Thank you for your cooperation. This applies to our daycare parents/ guardians as well. 

Spoons/ Forks/Heating Up Food:

A reminder that we do not supply cutlery and do not heat up student meals. Thanks for your understanding. 

Have a wonderful school week.
