Maplehurst Message for September 7, 2018


Good afternoon, Maplehurst families.


We had a great first week of school! I truly hope that your child(ren) enjoyed being back at Maplehurst with new and old friends.


Construction Update:

We are working through some fixes to the air conditioning in one area of our upstairs hallway. Hopefully that will be done shortly! The rest of the upstairs is enjoying the cool air that was certainly appreciated this week. On October 5 (PA Day), Union Gas will be updating some equipment and that should be it for the 2017-2018 construction marathon! Thank you for your patience...


Bussing:

Whew! We have had a smooth week for students arriving and getting picked up at the end of the day. Thank you to everyone for helping us keep track of who is in daycare, picked up, walking, bussed, YMCA, martial arts, etc… It is a lot of work and we do not want to make mistakes!


Parking on Dorset

We have had numerous neighbours voice their concerns regarding the number of cars that park on Dorset during the start and end of the school day. The concerns centre around student safety and the restricted road width when cars are parked on both sides. If you are able, parking down a side street off of Dorset is available. Or on Plains Rd. at Shopper’s or the Bingo Lot.


Milk and Pizza

Information will be coming home next week. Stay tuned!


Cross Country

Practice starts next week for Grade 3-6 students who are interested in participating.


School Safety

Today we had our first fire drill and lockdown drill. Students were AMAZING during the drills! Way to go.
