Northwood P.S. Procedures for Entry and Dismissal

Northwood P.S. Procedures for Entry and Dismissal
  • Upon entering and exiting the school building, all staff, students, and visitors are required to wash or sanitize their hands-available at every entrance.
  • Physical distancing and traffic flow must be maintained-our stickers will help!
  • A mask must be worn in all spaces within the building except to eat.
  • Non-essential visitors and parents/guardians will have limited access to the building to ensure chances of contact and transmission of Covid-19 are minimized. 
  • All visitors, including all parents will be required to sign in to a visitor log and leave a phone number for the purpose of contact tracing.

Morning Arrival-8:45-9:00

  • Staff will be available at each arrival point to safely direct students to their designated door.
  • Students will come directly into the building or their assigned portable. There will be no congregating on the school yard.
  • Students will use a labelled designated door and go directly to their classroom. These designated doors will be the ONLY doors they are allowed to use for entry and dismissal.

Late Arrivals and Picking Up Students During the Day

  • If a student is late, they will come through the front door independently, if possible. A table will be set up outside the office with late slips. Students will pick up a late slip and go directly to class where they will be welcomed by the teacher.
  • If a child needs to be picked up early for an appointment, please advise the teacher or school ahead of time. Once you reach the school, ring the buzzer, and your child will be sent to the front entrance. Your child will be signed out by office staff. 

Dismissal 3:20

  • Students will exit the school utilizing a designated door and directly leave the property-there will be NO congregating on the playground.
  • Staff will be available to safely direct students onto the bus, to the walker exits, or to Kiss and Ride.
  • Students will wait at Kiss and Ride, physically distancing, until they reach their vehicle safely.

Dropping Off Lunches

  • All families are strongly encouraged to work together to bring a packed lunch to school each day.
  • In the event that a lunch needs to be dropped off, ring the buzzer.
  • The lunch MUST be pre-labelled with your child's name clearly visible.
  • Leave the lunch on a designated table and it will be delivered at a later time by a staff member.
  • You will be required to sign the visitor log and leave a phone number for the purpose of contact tracing.

Thank you for your co-operation. We truly appreciate all you are doing to prepare your child for their return to school.

Welcome Back!

Good afternoon Northwood Families,

As you are likely aware, the start date for students was changed last week - Thursday, September 10th. 

In addition, the Board is staggering the start of school for students.  In short, students have been placed into two groups according to first letter of last name (A-L and M-Z).  They will come to school every other day, for the first four days.  Please click the link and read carefully.

We want to ensure that families/siblings attend school on the same day. 

Please call the school at 519-969-7610 to inform us if your children have different last names.

Thank you,

Mr. Romano
