March 15th and April 26th. 

There will be no classes for Kindergarten students on these days. Kinderstart families will receive an email with further details about the times of sessions for your child prior to the Christmas break. In the meantime, if you have not provided confirmation of address and your child’s MCP please email sarahmartin@nlesd.ca.

Outside Play/ Winter Dress 

We are a school that certainly promotes outside time. Teachers take students outside during the day and also at playtime. As well as a change of clothes just in case. 

We can expect the weather to change and temperatures to drop. We will continue to go outside daily when the weather and conditions permit us to do so. It will be important for students to come dressed and prepared for outside to dress appropriately with warm jackets, hats and gloves/mittens when coming to school.
