Welcome to Princess Elizabeth!

Hello Princess Elizabeth Parents!


We are so excited to see you next week. We have greatly missed all our amazing families over the course of the past 5 months and cannot wait to welcome you back to a safe environment that will continue to support your children both academically and ensure their mental health and wellbeing. We are in this together and look forward to working with our families to ensure this is a positive experience for all. Please have patience as we are all in this together and we are confident that this will be an amazing year that may look different, but will still bring enjoyable experiences.


CLASS PLACEMENT

Thursday afternoon, your child's homeroom teacher called to introduce themselves or tried to! Some were able to leave messages if there was an option to. If you haven’t heard from them and are wondering about your child’s class placement don't worry! There will be many staff members outside the first week to help get students to class during the first week of school.


Just for some context we have had to re-shuffle numerous times to ensure we are following guidelines. We have many split classes to ensure equitable distribution of students. We know this can be challenging for students who hope to be in classes with their friends. However, sometimes those requests cannot occur as their are many other deciding factors in place when determining class placement. We appreciate your understanding of this matter especially in these unprecedented times.


Like always, during the first days of school class assignments could change.
