If your child is going to be late or absent please phone the school office. Hollyburn School has a callback voice mail line. If your child does not arrive at school in the morning, the school will contact you unless the office has been notified in advance. Please use the voice mail system for reporting students absences or lates.
Dial 981-1220, record your child’s absence or lateness.
Framework for Enchancing Student Learning
Each school is required to have a Framework for Enhancing Student Learning (FESL) document which outlines specific goals and objectives to improve student success.
Hollyburn’s goal is to improve number sense and increase student ownership of math learning from K – 7.
For more detailed information, please refer to the full FESL document below.
Please reach out to Breanna Lloyd at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or wish to learn more.
Indigenous Education School Plan
Each school is required to have an Indigenous Education Plan document which outlines a specific goal the school is working towards.
Hollyburn’s goal this school year is to provide a range of opportunities and cultural experiences for students to engage in to deepen their understanding of Indigenous ways of knowing and being.
For more detailed information, please refer to the full document below.
Please reach out to Emily Miller at email@example.com if you have any questions or wish to learn more.
Students and parents are reminded to use crosswalks at all times when crossing streets.
Please use the drive-through on Duchess Avenue for dropping off or picking up students. Under no circumstances may a driver leave his/her car unattended in the drive-through area. If you need to park, you must use the street where permitted. The parking lot is not to be used for dropping off children as children often cannot be seen among the parked cars. Traffic congestion is heavy at pick-up and drop-off times. Please note the following drive-through area procedures designed to foster student safety:
1. Pull as far forward in the drive-through area as possible.
2. If cars behind you have students in them and are ready to exit, please loop the block and return to the line-up. Do not make a U-turn; the lack of a sufficient turning radius and traffic congestion combine to make this practice unsafe.
3. Under no circumstances should drivers back their vehicles. This poses danger to pedestrian safety.
1. Pull as far forward in the drive-through area as possible. If children in the cars in front of you have not exited as quickly as your child, please wait for the other children to exit and then follow the cars ahead of you as they leave the drive-through area. As noted above, you should not back your vehicle at any time.
2. Do not make a U-turn.
Again, thank you for your understanding. We must all be vigilant to ensure our students enter and exit the school safely. Your support in following the procedures noted above is appreciated.
Hollyburn has been an amazing support for my children. They have gone above and beyond to help us make the transition to Canada. ” DAYNA CECCHI, [HOLLYBURN] PARENT
