Tuesday, September 5th, 2023

Student arrival and school time is from 11:10 a.m. to 1:25 p.m.

We will meet your child on the school field and we will also release them to you on the school field at the end of the day. Please pack a snack for your child as they will have time for a snack and outside play.

Students will be beginning the day in their last year classrooms. At Davis Bay, we make our best efforts to move students to their 2023/2024 classrooms on the first day of school. Having said that, as numbers may shift and change, there is a possibility that movement may be required after the first day of school. Families will be made aware of changes if they are necessary. Please remember that the task of assigning students to classes is complex. In making decisions, the staff work together to consider and balance the following with class size and composition:

academic abilities and needs; social emotional needs; relationships between students; leadership; learning and language needs.

Students taking the bus will be escorted to the pick-up location with a staff member.
