Letters were sent out in early June to pre-registered kindergarten families informing them of their scheduled orientation session dates and times. Kindergarten orientation sessions will be held on Sept. 2nd, 4th and 5th.
Check out the EIP division calendar (below) for a complete list of holidays and school closure days for 2014-2015, or our 14-15 Pine Street School Calendar for special school dates and activities.

Pine Street School Asthma, Allergy & Anaphylaxis Plan
Please review the Pine Street School Anaphylaxis Plan if your child has severe allergies or is at risk of anaphylaxis, asthma, or medical conditions. It outlines the plan we have in place to help your child be safe at our school.
Many changes will occur for the upcoming school year on our teaching staff. We say farewell to Miss Boyd who has taken a teaching position at another school next year. We wish all the best to Mrs. Wishewan who will be spending more time with her family. To Mr. Kadatz who is retiring, we hope that he will enjoy many hours of rest and relaxation.
Changes have been made to our initial grade 1 and 2 configuration. There will now be five grade 1 classrooms and three grade 2 classrooms due to the high enrolment numbers in these grades. We will be welcoming several new staff members to Pine Street School this fall. Our support staff list will be finalized later in June and early August.
