Dear Holly Families,
Thank you to the families who helped test our emergency release procedures. Overall, things went quite smoothly but there are some families we asking to update both their EMERGENCY CONTACT names, which are people to call if your child is sick during the day, AND their EMERGENCY RELEASE CONTACTS, which are people we can release your children to in an emergency. If you require assistance to do this, please feel free to contact the Holly Office.
Our Grade 6 and 7 volleyball season is set to begin this week. Games will be played for both teams on Tuesdays and Grade 7's get a second game on Thursdays. Please click the grade for a copy of the schedule: Grade 6 and Grade 7.
As Fall goes on, the weather will continue to deteriorate. Please ensure your children come dressed approprately for all weather conditions. This may include coats, boots, and some idoor shoes if needed. It is also suggested that our younger students have a change of clothes in case they slip or find an extra-deep puddle to splash in. This is especially important as we will try to get the kids outside as often as possible for fresh air at recess and lunch. Also, flu season is beginning, so please help us remind the kids to wash their hands as often as possible. If your child shows any symptoms of illness, please keep them at home and report the absence to the office.
Festive Fundraiser: Holly will once again be selling Poinsettias as a fundraiser to support Grade 7 extra-curricular activities and field trips. More information will be coming home in the near future. Click here to download an order form.

Parking Lot - Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures
Please note that we continue to have the Pick Up/Drop Off zone along the side of the parking lot closest to the field. Parents are not to leave their cars - your child is to meet you there if that is the plan. Your child can see you from the parking lot corner near the turn-about or from the field. Parking is available along the other side of the parking lot by the sidewalk and hedge. We also have parking in the middle of the lot and there is also parking on the West side of the school at Association Park and the Turf Parking lot. Finally, please watch for students. Pedestrians (students/parents) are to use the walkways, paths, sidewalks and crosswalks while around the parking lot. Reminder that there are 2 PAC stalls reserved for specific families who bid for the priviledge of using them exclusively. Please leave those empty for those 2 families. Drivers, please use absolute caution in our lot for the safety of our children.
Our school phone number is 604-946-0218; Absentee Line: 604-946-5938.If your child is going to be away, please call and leave a message.
