A Message from the Principal

Wiarton Willie has declared that we have six more weeks of winter!

When we have stormy weather in the morning;

•     Please remember to exercise caution when sending walkers out to school.  •     Make sure your children are dressed for the weather.
•     Call safe arrival 519-924-2752 and leave a message if you are keeping your child home - if busses are cancelled, bus riders do not need to call safe arrival. Please see instructions for how to access information directly from the bus companies at the bottom of the page and in our school newsletters.•     Remember that bus announcements and school closure information will be announced on all local radio stations. Announcements are usually made between 6:30am and 8:00am on CFOS 560AM, 106.5FM, CKNX 920AM, 101.7FM, 94.5 THE BULL, 92.3 THE DOCK and 97.9 THE BEACH.

Please note: Please be sure your child always has a healthy lunch packed each day – when the weather is unpredictable there may be times when we do not allow our older students to go downtown/ leave the school property during lunch time to ensure their safety.

Also - be sure to dress your child for the cold temperatures that seem to be hovering over Grey County. Our playground has lots of fun, winter activities for students to enjoy during recess times but it is very important that students have enough outdoor clothing to keep them warm. We will monitor wind-chill and extreme weather warnings and keep students inside if the temperatures dip to severe lows but for everyday cold, winter weather students will be outside for at least two 20-minute recess times each day. Some classes also do outdoor DPA (daily physical activity) but this will also be dependent on severe weather warnings.

There is always lots happening at Macphail - be sure to check out our calendar for upcoming special events and know that you are always welcome to join in on the fun!

As always, we continue to work, learn and play together ensuring that our learners today will become leaders tomorrow!
