This is our complete drop off and pick up protocol for the year 2020-2021
Parents and Friends of Anderdon,
This is an important safety message for all our families. This message is specific to families that may drop off or pick up students. The information is important for all Anderdon families.
Okay, just kidding. Now that we have your attention. . . We need to talk about safety as arrival and dismissal.
We are quite happy with how our afternoon pick up is going. Morning drop off has presented with some challenges and we are going to try to adjust that. There is an increase in drop off traffic. Staff have worked diligently to offer suggestions and work through the challenges. We need your continued help and patience as we make our action plans solid.
The intent of this communication is to let you know how we are getting along and that we are very close to finalizing our protocols for both times of the day. We are going to make a slight clarification on morning drop off.
Our timelines and protocols are tight. We know. We are sorry. Part of the explanation is due to Covid-19 restrictions, part is due to our bus times and part is due to our supervision guidelines. Thank you for all you are doing to keep our parking lot safe and for helping disperse our students quickly and with physical distance in mind.

As the Covid-19 situation changes in our community our Health Unit adapts and updates information for you. Here is the latest flowchart for you to use when you suspect or the school sends your child home.
We recognize that keeping your child home or we sending your child home causes logistic issues. We thank you very much for helping us in making sure our community is as safe as possible.

September 30th we are going to acknowledge a very important day – Orange Shirt Day! Why is Orange Shirt Day a very important day for all children? It reminds us that all children matter. All children have an important voice that deserves to be heard. We have Orange Shirt Day to remind us that every child matters. How did Orange Shirt Day begin? Phyllis Webstad, who attended a residential school in British Columbia in the 1970s, started Orange Shirt Day in 2013. Phyllis was initially excited to go to school and went shopping with her granny to pick out a new outfit for school; she chose a shiny orange shirt. That shirt was taken away from her when she arrived at residential school and was never returned to her. On September 30th Canadians wear an orange shirt to demonstrate the commitment to reconciliation and opening and continuing the dialogue about residential schooling.Please join us in wearing an orange shirt tomorrow. 🧡
