WELCOME BACK to SRB!

 
I hope that everyone enjoyed a wonderful summer and have transitioned smoothly back to school. I would like to highlight some of the exciting news from SRB this year. Please join us for “Meet the Teacher” evening on Tuesday, September 23rd from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. We will begin in the auditorium.

Our website is evolving and being updated with more timely notifications from School Council and the new Google calendars for School Events and the Sports Schedule. Please consult the calendars above by following the arrow as indicated in the picture to the right. 

The Key Club will be organizing a canned food drive for the Ottawa Food Bank. It is an annual event that is always successful and allows SRB students to give back to our community

 This year, at SRB, we welcome two new Autism Classes. These twelve students are settling into SRB nicely.

 Student safety is always our first priority and we practice our mandatory emergency procedures. We just had our first fire drill last week so that leaves 2 more fire drills and a lockdown for semester 1. Last year, we chose to run a lockdown during lunch when students were primarily in the foyer, cafeteria, gym or library rather than in classrooms with a teacher present. Our new School Resource Officer, Constable Beck, will advise and support us during this year’s practice lockdown. Without question, we cannot eliminate every threat and we hope one never arises, however, we can ensure that we are properly prepared.

Should you be taking your children to the doctor this fall, please remember to check that all of their immunizations are up to date. Teens need a booster for tetanus and diphtheria vaccines ten years after the preschool booster, usually between 14 to 16 years of age. The vaccine recommended for adolescents is called Adacel and it has added protection against whooping cough or pertussis. This vaccine is mandatory in Ontario and is provided free to all students. To contact Ottawa Public Health please phone 613-580-6744 ext 24108. Be sure to ask you doctor to notify Public Health about any other vaccinations.

Again this year we will participate in the Cappies Program with performance being showcased on April 16-18, 2015.
