We have a few important announcements before we proceed with our annual, Welcome Back BBQ!
BBQ and more
The VSB is repairing and painting our picnic tables and 3 benches outside in the front. It will be very important to stay away from the corded off area this evening. I know the timing is uncanny but we would like to suggest that people bring chairs and blankets to picnic in the field. Also, please let your children know that they must not play in this area. The large playground will be open.
Cross Country (important guidelines)
Cross country has begun and the Tennyson Team is as enthusiastic as ever. We are very proud of the volunteers and our students’ participation each year. That said, here is how the process must unfold if your child is attending the meets.
For liability reasons, it is very important that prior to leaving Tennyson you sign in your child with the VSB employee (teacher). You will find them in the back of the school waiting by the primary playground.
When leaving the meet it is of upmost importance that you sign out your child with the VSB employee (teacher) representing the school, at the meet.
We need to ensure the safety of your children. Please consider the impact on all of us, if we are unable to locate your child/children. It is important that you follow these guidelines.
Car Seats and Helmets for our Bike Riders.
Just a reminder that we are required by law to have car seats for children under 40lbs. Also, no child between 40-80lbs or until the height of 4’9” tall can travel in a car without a proper booster seat. Please ensure you have these for your children. It is our “duty to report” if we see otherwise.
We are also required by law to wear a helmet when riding a bike. It has come to our attention that some of our students are arriving without helmets and have been seen on Broadway and 10th Ave. If your child/children are riding their bikes to school, please remind them to wear their helmets.
On a more positive note. We look forward to seeing everyone this evening and the weather is perfect!
Thank you for your attention on these matters.
