George Bissett Elementary

First Day of School

Hello George Bissett Families!
It is the night before school and we have been busy preparing for the students.  The school is in tip top shape. The staff is ready to go.

In staffing news, Mr. Greenwood has recently moved to a new Vice-Principal position at another school.  We wish him all the best. We are looking forward to meeting our new Vice-Principal and introducing them to our community.  We expect to have a new Vice Principal in the next week. 

I wanted to share a few items with you to help the day go smoothly, and help with organization in the morning:
• Students can arrive starting at 8:10 am.  If you are bringing a student to school, please park on the road.  It will be crowded on the first day, you may be parking down the street
• If you need to know your child’s class, staff will be outside with yellow sets of class lists from 8:10-8:25.
• At the 8:25 bell, Primary to Grade 3 students will go to the gym to meet their teachers.  Grade 4-6 teachers will meet their students at the lower doors.
• At the end of the day, dismissal is at 2:30.  If you are doing a pickup remember to park on the road.  It will be crowded on the first day, you may be parking down the street.
We are looking forward to seeing you in the morning!
Mr. Fry
