Dear Hawthorn Families ,
This is a reminder that Tuesday September 27th is a 'Re-organization Day' for elementary schools in the Peel District School Board and there is no school for students on that day.
This year Hawthorn was unaffected by reorganization for classes in grades 1 to 8, however we did have some changes in Kindergarten. We were still able to keep both Kindergarten classes, however due to low enrolment in these two classes each having 18 students compared to the Board average of 26, we were reorganized to two classes with one class of 23 students a Teacher and an ECE and one class with 15 students and a teacher. As a result Ms. Morrison our ECE in Mrs. Stevenson's class was reassigned to another school with higher enrolment.
Thank you to parents for working with us during the implementation of the new 'safe arrival attendance reporting system. A reminder that you need to call the SafeArrival phone number at 1-855-209-6155, online at http://pdsb.schoolconnects.com , or by downloading the mobile app (through your phone's app store) for Apple and Android devices. For absences longer than 5 consecutive school days, please contact the school office. It is also very important to note that you cannot report an absence to the system after the school day begins at 9:00 AM. After that time you will receive a phone call from the school indicating that you child is absence and you will be required to respond to the call.
