School Advisory Council

Please come out to School Council!!! School Councils play an important role in ensuring the success of all students and communicating school successes to other parents and community members. Participating on School Council will give you the opportunity to provide meaningful input on school life.

Our first meeting is on Tuesday, September 27th at 6:00 pm.  We hope to see you there!!

Kiss and Ride and extra parking

We have made some changes to our parking lot and added 12 spots at the back of the school. We have also added a Kindergarten Kiss N’ Ride at the front of the school. This is for Kindergarten students only. The Grade 1-8 Kiss and Ride is still along the back parking lot at the stop sign. We will have staff directing traffic for the first few weeks to ensure a smooth transition. We hope that the extra parking and Kiss and Ride will help improve safety and flow of traffic at the school.

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.
