   STUDENT ABSENTEE MESSAGING SYSTEM

As part of a district process that will eventually include all schools, Delview is transitioning our Student Absentee Messaging system.  Starting today (Monday Feb. 20) if your child is absent from a class without notification, an email will be sent to your email address.  Automated phone calls will no longer be made for student absences.  Please contact the school if you need to update or add email addresses.

 

 Walk to School Collaboration Wednesdays

Frustrated by the long student drop off lines at the front of Delview? Feeling as though your teenager should be getting to school without your help? Thinking that your kids and all kids, in general, could do with more exercise and the outdoors?

Well…the staff of Delview agree (and research supports our view)! As such, we are bringing about a new initiative this year: WALK (or bike, rollerblade, or skateboard) TO SCHOOL COLLABORATIVE WEDNESDAYS!

Beginning with our first Collaboration Day on Wed. Sept. 21, the STUDENT DROP OFF PARKWAY IN FRONT OF THE SCHOOL WILL BE CLOSED from 8:00-9:45am. Please encourage your kids to plan to walk, scoot, or skate to school with their friends.

Adjacent parking lots will also be unavailable during this time! Please help us help your kids experience the value of independence, exercise, and community spirit by LEAVING YOUR CAR PARKED AT HOME!

Canadian Guidelines Recommend That......

For health benefits, youth aged 12 - 17 years should minimize the time they spend being sedentary each day.  This may be achieved by:

- Limiting recreational screen time to no more than 2 hours per day; lower levels are associated with addional health benefits.

- Limiting sedentary (motorized) transport, extended sitting and time spent indoors throughout the day.

 

One recommendation is that "instead of driving or taking the bus, teens can walk or bike to school with a group of friends from the neighbourhood."

STUDENT SCHEDULES

Student Schedules are now available on Parent/Student Connect.  Student schedules will not be handed out on the first day of school.  Students should be coming to school with a copy of their schedule.  Because counsellors are working diligently balancing schedules there may be changes to schedules so please check on the weekend for your most up-to-date schedule.
