Need to Know....

  • Student-Parent Portal - Summer Months

    The Student-Parent Portal accounts will be disabled over the summer months. The portal will be unavailable to students and parents from July 1, 2019 to August 30, 2019 @ 4:00 p.m..

  • Changes to Gender Documentation in Schools

    The Department of Education and Early Childhood development has announced changes to the way gender is recorded in school records. Please read the following memo from the department for full details on the changes.

  • Importance of Sleep

    After safety and nutrition, how much sleep a child gets is uppermost in a parent’s mind. The amount your child needs varies by age: Toddlers need 11 to 14 hours, while preteens and teens require 8 to 10 hours. Following a well-rehearsed bedtime routine and tucking in at a reasonable hour are two key components to helping your child get a solid night’s sleep.

    If your child can’t fall asleep easily, the following are effective strategies to soothe your kid’s nighttime struggles.

     

    Get Outside!

    Consider having your child run for exercise first, as a way to use up energy and prepare for bedtime later on.  Getting physical increases the body’s temperature—and after it lowers, the drop may help kids fall asleep more easily.  Sixty minutes of exercise is considered ideal for kids, including activities such as biking, hiking, or sports.

     

    Watch the Clock

    Staying up too late is a big reason kids aren’t getting the sleep they need each night. In fact, a child who heads to bed too late can take longer to fall asleep and may wake more frequently during the night.  Try to base your child’s bedtime on his age and activity level and then stick to the appointed time during the week and on weekends.

     

    Set the Scene

    A calming bedroom atmosphere can help ease sleep struggles. Be sure the room is dark enough (installing black-out shades can help) and the temperature is comfortably cool.  A rumbling tummy can keep kids awake, so offer a light snack before bed. Ones to try: whole-grain crackers with peanut butter or a small banana.

     

    Power Down Devices

    Watch out for electronics before bed. The blue light emitted by iPads, computers, and the television can keep kids awake. Turn off devices at least an hour before your kid turns in.

    If lifestyle and environmental adjustments aren’t helping your child get back on track with sleep, talk to a pediatrician.

     

    Children aged 3-5 years are recommended to have 10-13 hours of sleep each night while school aged children (6-9 years) are recommended to have 9-11 hours.

  • 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?"

    * Talk about the purpose behind the Plastic Bag grab.

    * What is something you learned about autism during Autism Awareness Spirit Week.

    * Tell me about the skills you are learning in music class right now.

    * What's the purpose of the Incredibles Wall.
     

     

  • 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.

     

     

  • May/June Menu

    Please be advised that the May/June 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!
