Ash Lee Jefferson Elementary School

Ash Lee Jefferson Elementary School -

Good Evening Ash Lee Jefferson Families,

Welcome to another new school year!

We are so very excited to welcome all of our new and returning students to school on Thursday, September 8!

In order to help make our students’ first day of school run smoothly, we will be posting our class lists for the 2016-2017 school year on the main doors of the school on Wednesday, September 7th from 4:30 pm- 8:30 pm.  The lists will be posted by the student’s 10 digit Provincial Student ID #; this is the number in the top left corner of your child’s report card.  For confidentiality reasons, there will be no student names posted. The list will be taken down after 8:30 pm and reposted before school on Thursday, September 8th.

Students coming in primary do not yet have a 10-digit Provincial Student ID number.  All of our primary teachers will be contacting parents by the end of the day, Wednesday, September 7th, to introduce themselves and provide details about what the first day of school will look like for our new primaries.

We know that PowerSchool was live for parents today and that many of you have logged on to see who your child’s teacher will be.  Please be aware that those lists may change and students may be moved to other classes.  Thank you for your patience.

We look forward to seeing you all on Thursday!

The Department of Education Wants to Hear From You!

The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development is developing a provincial student attendance policy. They are asking for input through an online survey from teachers, parents, students, administrators and employers about key issues and ideas to help improve overall attendance. The survey can be found at . Responses will be accepted until July 8. Based on that information, the department will develop a new policy that will be implemented in the fall. Please take a few minutes to provide your feedback.

Big changes to the School Insurance Program for 2015-16

Nova Scotia School Insurance Program (SIP) is the non-profit insurer owned by school boards across Nova Scotia.

Since 1988 we have paid for basic student accident insurance for every student in the Province for school hours and activities.

In previous years we sent all schools flyers to give to each student providing parents and guardians the option to purchase the Gold Plan for 24/7 coverage. This year we would like to promote the Gold Plan only online, in an effort to take the eco-friendly route, reduce costs and staff time.
