  • Ask your child about...

    We will do our best to regularly add discussion topics to this space to engage your child in conversation at home.

    These topics can be a nice replacement for the standard question, "How was your day?"

    * What is your favorite outdoor activity on the playground?

    * Tell me about the different expected voice levels for the different areas of the school.

    * What is the purpose of our school's buddy bench?

    * Talk about the ways in which you can earn a BARK tag at school.
     

     

  • Playground Access Notice

    Keeping our students safe is important to all of us. For that reason and in response to concerns raised by parents and staff, we ask that the playground area be reserved to students and staff only between the hours of 8:25 AM and 2:45 PM. All parents/guardians/siblings/pets are kindly asked to remain outside the playground area. As such, we ask that our families accompany their children to the edge of our playground at the beginning of the day and allow their children to play/socialize independently until the bell rings. Children will walk to their designated entry door on their own. We also encourage parents/guardians who pick up their children at the end of the day to wait along the edge of the playground and establish a meeting spot in those areas.

    The playground is an extension of our school and often used as an outdoor classroom throughout the day.  The same check-in process is necessary for the playground as inside our building. Parents/guardians who wish to be on the playground within the hours noted above are required to sign into the office and pick up a visitor’s tag. An exception to this guideline will be made for our licensed daycare providers who drop off/pick up a number of children each day. These changes are supported by our School Advisory Council which is comprised of parents, community members and staff.

  • Allergy Safe

    This is a reminder that Spring Street Academy endeavors to be an allergy safe school so please help us to keep our students safe.  We have several students with life threatening allergies. There are many nut free snacks available and we would ask that parents NOT send items containing nuts of any kind to school (including peanut butter and Nutella). Though we cannot guarantee that those items will not show up from time to time we try to be vigilant. Please make us aware in the office of any students who have severe allergies of any kind.

     

     

  • October & November Menus

    Please be advised that the January cafeteria menu is posted on this site. It can be found under the About SSA tab labeled "cafeteria menu."

  • Student Arrival on Playground

    Parents and guardians are reminded that students are NOT to be on school grounds before 8:25 am in the morning. Morning supervision does not begin at school until then and the safety and security of your child is at risk as a result. Thank you for your helping us to keep your children safe.

  • Proof of Address for Revenue Canada

    Effective immediately, SSA will no longer provide letters stating a child's address for use by Revenue Canada. Schools are under no obligation to provide this information. Parents/guardians are advised to contact their family doctor, dentist, church, etc. for this information. Thank you!

  • Mid-Day Dismissal Procedure

    Students who leave school during the school day (for illness, appointments, etc.) are required to remain in the office until a parent or designate sign them out. That said, parents are asked to come into the school on such occasions. If someone who is not listed as a contact on the student's file is picking up the student, it is also important that parents either notify the school by phone or written notification. Thanks so much for helping us keep your children safe!
