June is a very busy month here at Victory with teachers wrapping up units of study and putting transition plans into place. Our Grade 4 French Immersion students will have an opportunity to visit King George on June 22nd and will be decorating our school fence with unique individually hand-painted fish. It will be nice to still have a little piece of them left behind when they leave for King George. I’d like to thank the group of Grade 4 FI parents who stepped up to make this project happen! Our Grade 4 FI students, parents and teachers will gather on June 29th from 9:30-10:30 in the school yard (rock garden) to bid farewell to our students that are off to new schools.
Our Grade 6 students will be heading off for a visit at Willow Road. They have an opportunity to meet with the Principal of Willow Road P.S. Our grade 6’s will also be walking over to Willow as a class to visiting the school on June 26th. The Grade 6 Transition celebration will take place at Exhibition Park on June 28th at 2:00 pm.
We have several fun events to look forward to this month like: Pride Day Sidewalk Chalk Art, City Track and Field on June 16th, and year end classroom celebrations.
Daily self-reported COVID cases at our school
Due to the continued prevalence of COVID-19 during the sixth wave, we will be providing a regular report of positive COVID-19 cases that were self-reported* to the school. *Public health officials no longer inform schools of positive cases. We will aim to provide this additional layer of reporting for a short time period to respond to increasing case counts in our communities.
The information will be shared on the school website on this post, which will be updated daily (Monday-Friday, holidays excluded).
We recognize that because schools and the school board are no longer receiving reports from public health officials when there is a positive case, and because self-reporting to the school is voluntary, the number of cases reported on the school website will not be an accurate reflection of the amount of COVID in the community.
Should you wish to self-report a positive COVID case to the school for your child(ren), please do so by contacting the school’s main office.

- Number of cases that were self-reported to the school on this date: 0
Daily School Absence Reporting
The UGDSB continues to report school absences on a daily basis, which allows us to monitor trends in absenteeism rates and gives us a better sense of the impact of COVID-19 on schools.
You can view the daily absences for our school, and see if our school goes above the 30% absenteeism threshold, here: https://www.ugdsb.ca/community/coronavirus/2021-22-school-operations/daily-absence-tracking-pilot/
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.
