Welcome to Senator Gibson Public School

Spring is just around the corner! It’s amazing how quickly our weather can change bringing with it some beautiful sunshine followed by some wet and wild weather. These changes can leave our field very wet and muddy. Please ensure your child has a change of clothes at school or in his/her backpack so they can continue to have fun outside. This will also prevent many phone calls home and extra trips to the school to drop off dry clothes.
A BIG thank you for helping us to keep our Kindergarten Kiss and Ride and bus loading zone clear and safe for our students. We appreciate your efforts to use the side Kiss and Ride to pick up and drop off your children in grades 1-8.
Thanks to the very generous support of Beamsville Diagnostic Imaging, Grimsby Chrysler along with private donations we will replacing our scoreboard. We are continuing to seek our community’s support to help fund the remaining upgrades and new uniforms. Our facility is used by many different community groups and organizations on a nightly basis. We want to provide an environment that screams PRIDE and SUCCESS within our school. If you haven’t already seen the wonderful additions to our gymnasium, please take the opportunity to visit and view the work already accomplished this year. We are well on our way, and the kids are loving it!

Kiss and Ride and extra parking

Please remember that our Kiss and Ride at the front of the school is strictly for pick up and drop off of for families with children accessing Day Care or Kindergarten. It is a designated no parking zone as well as a fire lane. We kindly ask that if you are dropping off students in grades 1-8, that you use the drop off at the side of the building. Students will not be permitted to enter the school through the front doors unless they are arriving after the bell. Should you wish to park your vehicle and walk your child(ren) onto the playground, please use the church parking lot or nearby side streets. Thank you for your cooperation and helping to keep everyone safe.

Important Message About Anaphylaxis:

There are students who attend our school that suffer from anaphylaxis.  Anaphylaxis is an allergic reaction that affects 2 or more organs, so severe that in some cases it can be life threatening. Its’ onset is so swift that from time of exposure to death can be as short as 15 minutes.

We have children with severe allergies to peanuts, nuts and nut products, shellfish, bananas and eggs. Just touching or smelling one of these allergens can cause a life threatening anaphylactic reaction for students at our school. Prevention is the best approach!  We ask your cooperation in using discretion when sending food to the school.  We also request that you speak to your child about these allergies and about the importance of washing their hands with soap and warm water.

As a staff, in accordance with the parents of these students, we have developed a plan to deal with this situation.  We know that if we work together, we can help to create a safe learning environment for all of our students.  If you have any questions about this request or about anaphylaxis, please call the school office.

On behalf of these students, their parents, and the Senator Gibson Public School staff, we thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
