Important End of Year Message for Families http://cam.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/452Important End of Year Message for Families <p>Cameron Street Families, </p><p>It has been our pleasure getting to know your child this year. It's hard to believe that the end of the school year has arrived, and what a year it has been!  </p><p>It is unfortunate that our time together in the classroom was cut short, however, we appreciated the opportunity to stay connected and to continue our learning from home. This was not an easy transition for anyone, and we know how hard many of you worked to help your child stay connected. We appreciate that supporting your child's learning from home is not easy and we really do appreciate your efforts and support the last couple of months. </p><p>We would like to personally thank each and every one of the parents, grandparents, and other family members who have supported and encouraged the students over the course of the year. Your dedication and support has not gone unnoticed. </p><p>Although our halls are quiet now, we look forward to seeing all of your children and their smiles back here at school in September.   <br> As the plan for September continues to evolve, we will update you throughout the summer with any information you will require for a smooth transition back to school. </p><p>Please review the attached information regarding report cards, the return of technology, pick up of personal items and school council.<br></p><p>Wishing you all a wonderful summer! </p><p>Mr. Comish and Ms. Case</p><p><a href="/PublishingImages/Lists/LocalNews/AllItems/Year%20End%20Pick%20Up%20and%20Drop%20Off%202021.pdf"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/15/images/icpdf.png" alt="" />Year End Pick Up and Drop Off 2021.pdf</a></p><p><a href="/PublishingImages/Lists/LocalNews/AllItems/SCHOOL%20COUNCIL%20NEEDS%20YOU.pdf"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/15/images/icpdf.png" alt="" />SCHOOL COUNCIL NEEDS YOU.pdf</a><br></p>

COVID-19 testing available for students and their family members on May 6, 2021.http://cam.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/451COVID-19 testing available for students and their family members on May 6, 2021.<p>To ensure that our school remains safe for all to learn and work in, we have partnered with LifeLabs, Canada's largest medical laboratory, to provide free COVID-19 testing for all students and their family members, teachers, and staff at Cameron Street PS. There are no appointments; families can attend at any time during the clinic.</p><p>COVID-19 testing is voluntary and only for asymptomatic individuals (those who are not experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms.) </p><p>If you are interested in participating, testing will be available on the following date:</p><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li>Date: Thursday May 6, 2021</li><li>Time: 3:30 – 8:00 p.m.</li><li>Location: Collingwood Collegiate Institute – 6 Cameron St., Collingwood, Ontario</li></ul><p>Asymptomatic testing is an important layer of protection that helps to track and prevent the spread of COVID-19. Increased testing may also help to reduce stress and anxiety related to the virus by identifying cases early and avoiding outbreaks.</p><p><strong>Our Goal = less discomfort!</strong></p><p>The test process is very simple and safe and the collection site will be staffed by professionals who will be following a multitude of safety parameters. LifeLabs uses a swab similar to a Q-tip that is inserted into the front part of the nostril and rotated for fifteen seconds (per nostril). After the sample is collected, the test results will then be available within 24-48 hours on LifeLabs WorkClear Thrive application. If an OHIP number has been provided at the time of check-in/registration results will also be uploaded to covid19results.ehealthontario.ca. </p><p>Thank you for helping us keep the Cameron Street PS community safe and healthy so that we can avoid any further disruption from the COVID-19 virus! </p><p><br></p><p> </p><p><br></p>

Before and After School Drop-Off and Pick-Up Routineshttp://cam.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/447Before and After School Drop-Off and Pick-Up Routines<p><em>To ensure the safety of students and their families, we ask that you please refrain from using the school parking lot for drop off in the morning and after school.  The parking lot exit is for the smooth flow and exit of busses only.   The bus drivers are also very concerned about the number of walkers in the lane way and we ask that you please use the sidewalks along Cameron and Birch Street rather than cut through the parking lot at drop off and pick up.   This will help ensure that all of our families and students remain safe and that the busses can safely move through our bus loop before and after school.  </em></p><p><em>If you must drive to school, we suggest that you "drop a block" and park a short distance away from the school and walk the remaining distance.  If you are unable to this, please use our 'drop and go' area outside the kindergarten and primary yard gates.  If you are using this drop off, please approach parking spots from the east and refrain from doing U-turns and multi-point turns when exiting your 'drop and go' spot.   </em></p><p><em>The safety of our students and their families is our top priority.  We really appreciate your support!</em></p><p><em></em><br></p>
