Does your Child have Anxiety?
Signs of anxiety in a child could be:
Constantly needing reassurance, constantly calling you, not wanting to go to school or a friend's house or anywhere?
Having "Meltdowns" and many complaints about headaches, stomach aches, difficulty swallowing and so on and the doctor can find nothing physically wrong....
The behaviour seems to be getting worse no matter how much you try to reassure your child?
South West Health's Mental Health and Addiction's unit is pleased to once again offer their popular group for Parents of Anxious Children. The group is free to parents and will take place on Monday evening for 6 weeks from 6-8pm. The first group will start on May 27th, 2013 in the Ruth and Irving Pink Room, first floor of the hospital. You will need your child's health card to register.
Please contact: Debra Bourque, MSW, RSW, Child and Adolescent Team, Mental Health and Addictions at 742-4222 ext 1836 to register or if you have any questions.
The following dress code was implemented in September 2003 by the Tri-County School Board with descriptors added by MGEC 2012:
1. Students are expected to wear clothes appropriate for the time, place and occasion (an elementary/junior high 7 and 8 school setting).
2. A student's dress and appearance shall:
a. be safe, appropriate and not disrupt or interfere with the educational process;
b. recognize that extremely brief garments such as tube tops, crop tops, net tops, halter tops, spaghetti straps, plunging necklines (front and/or back), skirts or shorts shorter than mid-thigh (approximately three inches above the knee), and see-through garments are NOT appropriate at any time - including school dances;
c. ensure that underwear is completely covered with outer clothing;
d. not include the wearing of hats in the classroom except for a medical or religious purpose or for special promotions within the school such as "hat day".
3. Any student who refuses to adhere to the dress code shall be subject to discipline up to and including an in-school suspension for the day. Any student who repeatedly fails to comply with the dress code shall be subject to further discipline.
Request to Leave Early
If a student is not feeling well, they are to contact a parent/guardian via the phone at the Main Office. They will then be given a note to put in the home room's day book so the teachers receiving that class are aware that the student has left early.
Also, students leaving before the end of the day, or arriving after the day has started, need to check in at the main office to either sign out or sign in. This allows us to keep track of where the students are.
If your son/daughter is home due to an illness and you would like their homework, please call the school before 9am and it will be put on the announcements in the morning. That way all teachers will be notified and any work missed can be brought to the office for someone to pick up by the end of the day.
Bus notes to travel on another bus will not be permited.
