Message from the Principal
  May is shaping up to be a busy month and it is nice that the warm sunny weather has finally (mostly) arrived!
 Please note that many students are riding their bikes to school which is a great way to be active every day, however drivers and cyclists must follow the rules of the road.  Be safe, give students on bicycles lots of room and remember to review bike safety with your child :)  This month we are looking forward to many fun activities & field trips for students, please be sure to sign and return permission forms as well as sign up to be a class trip volunteer! It is a great way to get to enjoy a day with your child and their classmates (police checks must be completed prior to the trip).
  Our character trait for the month of May is self discipline. Self discipline is displayed when we are in charge of our own thoughts and feelings to do the right thing, like use words to solve problems and follow school and society rules.
     PS a special thank you goes out to SCC and all persons that contributed to Keppel fundraisers so far this year! The Keppel students are enjoying the new play items available to them!

Student Pickup and Drop off
To ensure the safety of all students, please be careful that your child/children are not walking unattended through the parking lot area. Also please keep the bus loading and unloading zone clear of vehicles. Parents are great role models for children and we truly appreciate this opportunity for parents to teach children about road safety!
Student supervision begins at 8:30 am, Bus students are supervised until boarding the buses. Students who are not on buses should be picked up at 3:10. Thank you for your attention to these timelines.


Bus Cancellation Website
 The snow is here and we would like to inform you that the bus cancellation website has changed. Check out the Bus Cancellation sidebar on the left to access information. It is an easy tool to check for student bus information! In thinking about snow, please be sure that your child is appropriately dressed to be outside several times a day.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact the school office.

CONCUSSION PROCEDURE
The Ontario Government recently passed legislation regarding concussion, which requires school boards to develop and maintain a procedure on implementation of concussion awareness, prevention, identification, and management in publicly funded schools in Ontario. The Bluewater District School Board concussion procedure (AP 6814-D, available on the board website), which we must follow, provides strategies to minimize the risk of concussion, steps to follow for a suspected concussion, and effective management procedures to guide students’ return to learning and physical activity after a diagnosed concussion.
  Making sure that children receive appropriate care when concussion is suspected and/or diagnosed is the priority of the new procedure. Medical follow-up and documentation will be most important in ensuring that the health and safety of children is paramount. Parents and medical personnel will be required to sign documents regarding a student's ability to return to learn & return to physical activity.
If an individual experiences a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or neck, we would watch for the following as signs and symptoms of concussion:
- appears dazed or stunned
- answers questions slowly or slurs speech
- repeats questions
- is confused about events, dates, etc.
- difficulty recognizing people or places
- loses consciousness (even briefly)
- can't recall events prior to and/or after hit
bump or fall
- shows behaviour or personality changes
- forgets class schedule or assignments
- vomiting
- sensitivity to light or noise
- drowsiness
- one pupil larger than another
We will continue to communicate with parents whenever we are aware that a child has experienced a head or neck injury regardless of whether or not we suspect that concussion may be an issue.
