The usual peak season for Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease

The incidence of the Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease (HFMD) is on the rise recently. HEMD is a common infection caused by a group of viruses. It typically begins with a fever or feeling generally unwell. This is followed a day or two later by flat discolored spots or bumps that may blister, on the hands, feet, and mouth, and occasionally buttocks and groin.

There is currently neither vaccine to protect against the virus nor specific treatments. However, you could lower your risk of being infected by maintaining good personal hygiene.

If secretions from blisters can be contained, no exclusion required. Please report any HFMD cases so we can evaluate whether the viruses are spreading. For treatment questions you may wish to consult with your health care provider or school nurse.

PTA needs teacher volunteers June 1st

The PTA is looking for 3-4 teachers to help supervise the Early Years Event, an After School Movie in the PAC from 3:15-4:00 pm and 4 teachers to help supervise the Grade 9/10 Club Night (Dance in the Black Box) from 7:00-9:00 pm on Friday, June 1st.  Please let me know if you are willing and able to help out.  Thanks!

Pre-exam activities: IMPORTANT

Good morning, students in Grades 7-11,

You will see the activity/ies that you have signed up for in your Veracross Portal.  Make sure that you make your way directly to the location of the activity after Advisory.   The supervisor will take attendance. You may not make any changes without prior permission.

If you have not signed up for an activity, you must be in your Block 1 lesson for quiet study.

Block 2: you need to be in your scheduled Block 2 lesson for either quiet study or a normal lesson, as indicated on the exam schedule.  There are no activities during Block 2.

Be balanced!
