Dear Signal Hill Families,
 
It's definitely feeling like winter here at Signal Hill! With snow on the ground we've been having lots of fun using the school's sleds and playing in the snow during breaks. We had a very successful craft fair - most students sold out, and students are hard at work filming their winter concert performances. We are very excited to show you what we've been working on next week!

The Signal Hill Early Act club is running a holiday food drive, and we would love for you to bring in canned, bagged or boxed foods between December 6th - 16th. We will have a box at the front entrance for food donations.

Some examples of student work and activities around the school:
 
Ms. Adams, McMurray, and Hamonic's classes learned about the solar system and had to represent it in a model. Then they participated in a gallery walk, looking at what other students did and in turn appreciating different perspectives.

International Travel and COVID-19
 
As the world is starting to open up for travel, please see the measures in place at this time for International travel.

The Government of Canada has put in place emergency measures under the Quarantine Act to slow the introduction and spread of COVID-19 and variants in Canada. Fully vaccinated travellers without signs and symptoms of COVID-19 are not required to quarantine upon entering Canada if they comply with the requirements in this handout.

Unvaccinated children less than 12 years of age who enter Canada with a fully vaccinated parent, step-parent, guardian or tutor, are not required to quarantine if the child follows all the requirements for fully vaccinated travellers and complies with the conditions of the Minister of Health in this handout.

Please see following conditions in the Minister of Health handout. Note they are other
sections in this handout.
 
Requirements for an unvaccinated child less than 12 years of age:
 
For 14 days after arrival, the child must not:
• attend school, camp or day care
• attend a setting where they may have contact with vulnerable people (e.g., longterm
care facility), including people who are immunocompromised, regardless of that
person's vaccination status or public health measures
• travel on crowded public transportation that does not ensure physical distancing and
masking
• attend large crowded settings, indoors or outdoors, such as an amusement park or
sporting event

Further information on what your child can and cannot do can be found on the mandatory
quarantine or isolation page.
Students in Ms. Penney's class are learning about Á7xe7ul by embracing their strengths/gifts and using them for the benefit of others.
