Message from the Principal

Welcome back to another school year!  Thank you to our custodial staff and teachers for taking pride in our school and preparing for the return of the Cougars this week!  All of us at Keppel-Sarawak look forward to welcoming all of our returning students and we are excited to get to know all of our new students and families. We will be having our “Meet the Teacher” night on Thursday Sept. 22nd, 2016 from 5:00-6:30 pm. Hope to see you there!

Please be aware that placement in classes during the full month of September is considered tentative for all students in Bluewater District School Board and may be subject to change until the school’s final enrollment is determined. Therefore, there is potential for your child to have a change in their classroom or teacher after school begins. The changes will hopefully be completed by early October. Thank you for your understanding and trust in our professional decisions with regard to the education of your children. It is greatly appreciated!   

New Student Pickup and Drop off area at the back of our school:

Over the summer some improvements were made to the outside of our building. We now have a drop off/pick-up area at the back door of our school off the parking lot. To ensure the safety of all students, we encourage you to use this area when bringing your child to school or picking them up. Parents are welcome to bring primary students through the front foyer to the kindergarten area and primary yard.  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.

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

Ryan’s Law (Ensuring Asthma Friendly Schools), was recently passed last year. If your child requires an inhaler for asthma at school, please notify the office and request the necessary forms to complete your child’s Asthma Management Plan. Together we can safely support your child’s health and well-being at school.
                          
                                    
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.
