Back to School! - September 3rd

Welcome to Viscount Alexander Public School! We look forward to having your child, or children, join us for the 2020-2021 school year.  Whether you are a returning family, or a new one joining us, we look forward to being part of your child's educational journey.


A few important pieces of information that may be helpful to you as you look ahead to the 2020-2021 school year:


First day of school (Staggered Entry):

Grades 1 & 2: Mon September 14th

Grades 3, 4 Tue September 15th

Grades 5 & 6 Wed September 16th

Kindergarten Separate communication to follow soon


All first year or new to school Kindergarten students will receive information about their virtual intake meeting by the end of day Friday.  If you do not receive this information, please call the school.  


Please refer to the Viscount Alexander Re-opening plan for arrival and departure procedures.

School Supplies: A list of recommended basic school supplies that all students should have access to for the year is available here:  School Supplies. We will also be collecting a voluntary $10.00 school fee and online payments can be made.


Staying Connected: School information is sent out most commonly via email from the office or your child's homeroom teacher.  It is essential that we have up to date contact information. You will receive a printout of the current contact information we have for you at the beginning of the school year.  Please make sure that any changes to any information on these sheets is recorded and sent back to the main office.  Our school website (https://viscountalexanderps.ocdsb.ca/) has a school calendar you can subscribe too, as well as our Twitter feed to make sure you are never more than a click away from the info you need. Field trip forms are also posted to the site for your convenience and online payments for student fees and activities can also be made. 


Transportation:  Student transportation information is now available on the OSTA Parent Portal. Please re-verify transportation information the week prior to school start-up as stop timings or location may have changed. A reminder that the empty seat program has been suspended this year due to COVID.


Life-Threatening Medical Conditions: Should your child have a serious or life threatening medical condition that requires planning, please ensure that relevant information is shared with the school. Should any medical interventions (e.g., medication, inhalers, epi-pens, etc.) be necessary parts of their plan of care, please ensure to plan ahead for the required documentation and medication provided to the office in September.


Have a safe and great long weekend!


The Viscount Alexander Team
