WATERMAIN REPAIR UPDATE:
The town has successfully fixed the water line so we will be having regular classes for students on Wednesday, March 5. We are still on a boil water advisory, so we are asking students to bring fillable water bottles from home to reduce the waste of paper cups as there will be access to bottled water dispensers in the schools. Thank you and we look forward to a great day with students tomorrow!

A Message from Prairie Spirit: Bus Cancellation Notices
We are concentrating on our website as the most accurate and up-to-date communication tool to notify parents of bus cancellations. All bus cancella-tions are prominently posted on the Prairie Spirit website (www.spiritsd.ca) by 7:00 a.m. each school day. Only rural busing students will be called by their bus driver in the event of a cancellation; in-town busing students must consult the website for cancellation notices.
Cancellation announcements are also provided to FM radio stations: The Bull 92.9 and C95 and AM stations: News Talk 650 CKOM and CJWW 600.* >> read more in the newsletter
We are presently working on next year’s enrolment for Kindergarten. Children who are five years of age as of December 31 of the school year (2014) may be admitted to kindergarten. PSSD Policy No. 403.2.a. If you have a student or know of one that will be attending Delisle Elementary in the fall of 2014, please send us their name, phone number, address and date of
birth. You may call Mrs. Crowe @ 306-493-2451 or email at email@example.com
The school is always looking for volunteers in the following ways: helping in the library with shelving and displays (9-9:30 daily) or with our Breakfast program. A detailed note was sent home separately outlining the various ways to support this program- serving, clean up, baking, donations. Each and every child benefits from the Breakfast program in one way or another so please help us out with your support too! The library program and breakfast program are two easy ways to meet people, support our students and stay connected to the school and community. All training is provided and no previous experience is required! Give us a call if you are interested in any way. 306-493-2451
Books are available for parents as well. >> click here for some book titles
At the end of the school day, we would like to keep the front of our school reserved ONLY for Kindergarten-student pick-up. To reduce the high traffic and ensure everyone’s safety, we are asking that you find a meeting spot with your children other than the benches at the front entrance of the school.
Allergen Aware School
We continue to be an allergen aware school as we have students who have a life threatening allergy to peanuts and nuts. Please do not send any peanut butter or products that contain peanuts/nuts to school in your child’s lunch kit. The list of ingredients should always be read on any prepackaged lunches and snacks.
