Attend a French Immersion information night, application window opens in Januaryhttp://emk.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/398Attend a French Immersion information night, application window opens in January<p>​<span style="line-height:115%;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:10pt;"><font color="#000000">The Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) offers French Immersion (FI) at select schools throughout Simcoe County beginning in Grade 1. The goal of the FI program is to enable students to communicate in French with a high level of proficiency, enabling them to function with ease in both French and English. Upon graduation from the program, students will communicate in French with confidence in a wide variety of real-life situations. <br> <br> Information sessions take place in January for parents of students in Senior Kindergarten. A letter will be sent home to those parents with more details. Information session dates will be posted at </font><a href="http://www.scdsb.on.ca/secondary/program_options/French_as_a_second_language"><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><font color="#0000ff">www.scdsb.on.ca/secondary/program_options/French_as_a_second_language</font></span></a><font color="#000000">. <br> <br> The FI online application form will be available from 9 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 21, until 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2019 at </font><a href="http://www.scdsb.on.ca/"><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><font color="#0000ff">www.scdsb.on.ca</font></span></a><font color="#000000"> under Elementary, French as a Second Language. While every effort is made to accommodate all FI applications, available space and staffing will determine how many students can be registered. Applications will be processed in the order they are received electronically. Please contact the school if you do not have Internet access at home or require assistance accessing the online application.<br> <br> Please note that the host sites for FI may change during your child’s time in the program, and your child may need to move schools. This may also include splitting the program between two different sites.</font></span></p>
Kindergarten registration opens in Januaryhttp://emk.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/399Kindergarten registration opens in January<p>​Do you (or someone you know) have a child who was born in 2015? If so, it's almost time to register them for Kindergarten in the SCDSB! Beginning Jan. 28, 2019, Simcoe County's public schools will register children for Kindergarten for the 2019-20 school year. New this year, the registration process begins online! Visit <a href="https://www.scdsb.on.ca/elementary/planning_for_school/kindergarten"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">https://www.scdsb.on.ca/elementary/planning_for_school/kindergarten</span></a> for more information. <br></p>
School playgrounds are closed for the winterhttp://emk.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/400School playgrounds are closed for the winter<p>​<span style="line-height:115%;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:10pt;"><font color="#000000">Every winter, school playground structures are closed. Students are made aware of this during school hours through announcements and staff reminders during breaks. This may not be well known throughout the community despite signs indicating that playground structures are a winter hazard and are closed. The Canadian Standards Association Regulations make recommendations for the depth of ground cover required to minimize injuries (e.g. sand, pea gravel or wood chips). These surfaces cannot be maintained when the ground freezes. Injuries from falling would be more significant on frozen ground. We strongly recommend that you do not allow your children to play on any structures while the ground is frozen.</font></span></p>
