Principal's Messagehttp://tbe.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/302Principal's Message<p>​Hello Tec Beeton Families,</p><p>Thank you again for everything you have done and continue to do to support a safe and happy return to school for everyone.  We continue to do everything we can to keep everyone safe and our school open! </p><p><strong>School Screening Tool:</strong> Thank you for all your diligence to ensure your child stays home when they are experiencing symptoms.  As a reminder if anyone in your household is experiencing symptoms, given particular circumstances, <span style="text-decoration:underline;">all household members are to isolate</span> until the person experiencing symptoms is cleared to return (negative test, doctor recommendation).  Please see more specific guidance from the SMD Health Unit below:  <br></p><p>Further to the directions listed in the Ontario COVID-19 school and child care screening tool:</p><p> • Where it is recommended to talk with a health care provider to get advice or an assessment, including if you need a COVID-19 test: the SMDHU encourages that individuals seek testing, as it is difficult for health care providers to distinguish between COVID-19 and other viral illnesses for which we do not have tests. </p><p>• If the student, parent/guardian, staff/visitor feels there is another explanation for the new symptom(s) requiring medical assessment rather than a COVID-19 test, they should contact their health care provider. Individuals who have had symptoms of COVID-19 and who do not get tested, can return to school or child care if all three of the following apply: o a doctor provided an alternative diagnosis, AND o they do not have a fever (without using medication), AND o it has been at least 24 hours since symptoms started improving (or 48 hours if they had nausea/vomiting/diarrhea). </p><p>• Individuals with symptoms compatible with COVID-19 who do not undergo testing OR receive an alternative diagnosis, must self-isolate for a minimum of 10 days from symptom onset (even if symptoms resolve). After self-isolating for 10 days, they may return to school and/or child care if they have been at least 24 hours without a fever and symptoms are improving (or 48 hours if they had nausea/vomiting/diarrhea). </p><p>• Medical documentation or proof of a negative test result is not required to return to school or child care. </p><p>• <span style="text-decoration:underline;">Any household members of the ill individual who are not fully immunized or previously positive in the last 90 days are to isolate until the symptomatic individual receives a negative COVID-19 test or an alternate diagnosis.</span> If the person with symptoms in the household does NOT get tested, everyone else who is not fully immunized in the household MUST stay home for: </p><p>o 10 days from the last contact with the ill person if the ill person can self-isolate away from the rest of the household; or </p><p>o 20 days from start of the ill person's symptom(s) if the ill person CANNOT self-isolate away from the rest of the household.</p><p>Further details and information can be found on the SMDHU website or please give us a call at the school.</p><p><strong>Parking Lot: </strong> Thank You to everyone for adhering to the boundaries for pick up and drop off.  If you are dropping off/picking up, please use the parking spaces in the main lot, keep the Kiss and Ride lane moving and do not block accessible spots.  Please encourage your child to use the crosswalk to meet you but we also understand there are many students crossing at the front of the bus lane, especially primary students.  Staff are there to support but please watch for children at all times. Entry and dismissal are very busy times but safety must be everyone's priority to ensure we keep our parking lot open to visitors.    </p><p><strong>Re-organization:</strong> Our in-school population continues to fluctuate for a number of reasons and the Ministry of Education requires our class numbers to be submitted by the end of third week of September.  This is typically an annual process for all elementary schools but we can be called upon to review our class placements and allocations throughout the year depending upon enrollments and learning modes. Further information regarding possible re-organization will be provided later in the week.  Once re-organization is complete, any further changes to class placements cannot be considered. </p><p>If you subscribe to our website, you will be alerted of any new items posted such as Principal's Messages and Monthly Newsletters.<br></p><p>Have a great week!!</p><p>Be well,  stay safe.<br></p><p><br></p>

Weekly Updates and Principal Messagehttp://tbe.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/300Weekly Updates and Principal Message<p>​Happy New Year!! Many blessings to you and yours as we begin a new adventure in 2021!  While it is not the new year start up we were all hoping for, it is very nice to see so many faces on line in remote learning.  We understand this is a trying time and please focus on the best interest of your family and a learning approach that works for you all.  Reach out anytime should you have questions, need support or technology.  Fingers crossed we will be back to regular business on the 11th!<br></p><p>Remote Learning requests and In-class transitions: The SCDSB is currently working through the survey results and program switch requests.  All requests are based upon space in an existing class/grade.  No new classes are being developed at this time.  When limited space in a grade or class exist and the numbers of requests are higher than the space available, a lottery system is used to select the students awarded a spot in a class.  The change over between Learn@Home and In-class will occur at the end of Term 1.  Term 1 reports go home on February 16th and Term 2 begins February 17th.  <br></p><p>On Monday January 11th, Our School Council, in collaboration with our Community Officer Shawn Evans with the Nottawasaga OPP will be offering a free, live, virtual session for families on internet safety and awareness.  Please check your emails for upcoming information regarding this amazing opportunity.  <br></p><p>Thank you to everyone for continuing to use the self assessment tool before coming to school in person each day, for following through on safety measures such as proper mask wearing and distancing and for ensuring a quick turn over during student drop off and pick up each day.  Our parking lot remains open to visitors during this time - thank you for respecting the boundaries between the drop off areas and the school property and for making the transitions as quick as possible. This reduces the time for interactions and congregations between families in the parking lot and drop off zones.  We have all done a great job thus far, we can keep this up if we work together!  Thanks for all you are doing!!<br></p><p>Thank you for all you are doing to support your learners at home, we know you are doing the best you can and we thank you for your on-going support for educators as they navigate through more new learning and expectations.  <br></p><p>We miss you all and can't wait to see you on the 11th! <br></p><p>Take care everyone and be well!<br></p>
