Carleton Principal eNews
May 1st, 2020
May the 4th be with you!
As we move into the month of May, on behalf of the Carleton staff, thank you to all of you for your continued patience and understanding during this challenging time. Please continue to visit the VSB website regularly for the most up to date information regarding the current situation.
Administrative Transfers – Rose Thomas, Principal of Cunningham Elementary, will be moving to Osler Elementary for the 2020/2021 school year. I will become the new Principal of Cunningham Elementary and Joseph Maher will be the new Vice-Principal of Carleton Elementary.
VSB Meal Distribution at Carleton
Both daily lunch kits will continue to be available in the covered area Monday to Friday from 11:45am to 12:45pm.
Please note, our weekly lunch kit delivery day has been changed to Tuesday. Your bag will be available for pick-up at the Carleton site or the Cunningham site depending on where you requested. If you're not able to pick up your weekly lunch kit, or if you'd like to switch from the weekly to the daily option or vice versa, or for any enquiries regarding VSB meal distribution at Hastings, please email either Lori Eppler or myself. Please remember both the daily and weekly lunch options are meant to be one lunch per child. Please let school staff know if one lunch per child is not enough for your family.
Continuity of Learning
It is important we hear from all of our families at least once a week. Please ensure your child is connecting with their teacher or you are connecting with their teacher at the minimum once a week. If the teachers do not hear from your child or you during the week, the office will contact you to make sure everyone is okay. To help alleviate phone calls at the office level, please respond to your teachers emails, come to pick-up paper packages or have your child log-on to their online learning environments. If you are unable to connect every week, please call me directly so we can develop a plan to assist you and your family.
Not Returning to Carleton?
Families with children in grades k to 6, who will not, or may not be returning to Carleton for the 2020-2021 school year, please let our office staff know.
