Failing to do so, your child may miss out on some upcoming opportunities (i.e. community walks, technology privileges etc.). Moving forward all field trip permission forms, special orders and upcoming fundraisers are run through School Cash Online.</p><p><strong>BUS DELAYS AND CANCELLATIONS</strong>: For families who have students who ride the bus, please ensure that you monitor this link <a href="https://simcoecountyschoolbus.ca/">https://simcoecountyschoolbus.ca/</a> - it has live updates of bus delays and cancellations.</p><p><strong>HOT LUNCH PROGRAM: </strong>A hot lunch program will be starting in the near future.  Please watch for more information on this and a survey from the school council regarding the lunch program.</p><p><strong>SCHOOL COUNCIL MINUTES: </strong>Minutes from school council meetings will be forwarded to families after meetings and are attached to this communication. All parents are welcome to attend school council meetings.  Only voting members are able to vote on motions put forward.  If you would like to reach out to the school council chair (who is a parent volunteering for this position), they can be contacted at <a href="mailto:councilchairfor@scdsb.on.ca">councilchairfor@scdsb.on.ca</a>  </p><p><br><strong>ATHLETICS, FIELD TRIPS AND BUSES:</strong> We wanted to ensure parents are aware that booking buses for field trips and athletic events continues to be difficult.  The Simcoe County Student Transportation Consortium is not able to confirm the availability of transportation for school events such as field trips or athletic events since the priority is ensuring regular transportation runs.  As a result, we are asking for parent volunteers who would be able to provide transportation for their child(ren) to any athletic events or arrange a ride with a teammate.  For field trips, we will often not have final costs or permission forms to share with parents until a day or two before the trip.  We will attempt to provide an estimate of costs for potential field trips so that parents can plan for these costs.  Thank you for your understanding.<br></p><p><br></p>

The School Council is an advisory council to the school in an effort to enhance the schooling experience for all students. A major focus of the School Council will be advising on the FHPS School Equity and Action Plan and fundraising.  Our first meeting is on Tuesday, October 4th at 6:00 pm.  Please consider joining us!</p><p>PARENTS/VISITORS IN THE BUILDING: In an ongoing effort to maintain health and safety protocols, visitors and volunteers will gradually be given access to the school during our school day. To begin with, approved volunteers will be permitted in the school, on an as needed basis. Parents will be permitted in the building for scheduled meetings or for emergency situations. We would ask that you only pick up your child(ren) during the school day when absolutely necessary. If early dismissal cannot be avoided, we would ask that you call ahead. You will need to buzz the office from outside the front doors and wait until school staff can direct your child/ren outside.<br></p><p><br></p>
