    IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS:

    Picking Up Your Belongings: June 8-9 (11-2 by appointment)

    Public health and TVDSB have worked together to allow students controlled and limited access to Montcalm to retrieve personal belongings from their lockers. Calls have been made giving students appointment times to maintain safety. 

    WHAT SHOULD YOU BRING?

    A. School items (library books, textbooks, equipment, or school clothing) that you no longer need. Don’t return school-provided Chromebooks or SEA equipment unless you are leaving the Thames Valley school board (i.e. graduating, moving to post-secondary, or transferring boards) and done with them for the school year. 

    B. Bring a backpack to hold your belongings.

    C. Bring a mask and other protective equipment you wish to use. Masks are not provided. 

    WHAT DO I DO WHEN I ARRIVE FOR MY APPOINTMENT TIME?

    In order to follow public health protocols and social distancing, the following protocol MUST be followed: 

    1. If you are experiencing any symptoms of Covid-19, or if you have been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with Covid-19, or if you have travelled out of the country in the last 14 days, you may not come to the school property.

    2. You can’t bring family or friends into the building with you. Only you may go to your locker to get your belongings.

    3. When you get to school go to the parking lot and staff will direct you to your entrance door. Multiple doors are being used. 

    4. Social distancing rules apply to the ENTIRE school property (both inside and outside the school, on the sidewalk and in the parking lot). Staff will be supervising outside and inside the school to ensure compliance to these social distancing rules.

    5. While waiting, follow the markings on the sidewalk to keep a safe distance.

    6. At the door, give the staff member with the checklist your name. 

    7. Use the hand sanitizer inside the front door before you go to your locker. 

    8.  Following the arrows on the right side of each hallway and keep a physical distance from others.

    9. If you require personal belongings / schoolwork from a classroom (i.e. music room, art room, tech room, etc), you should contact your teacher in advance. Students will not be allowed to enter classrooms.

    10. If you don’t remember your combination ask for custodians to cut your lock off. 

    WHAT IF I MISSED THESE DATES OR NEED TO RETURN EQUIPMENT LATER IN JUNE?

    There will be another time to return school items during the last week of June. Students leaving the Thames Valley School Board who have not returned borrowed equipment and other school property in order to finish the school year should return them at this time. Personal belongings that are not claimed from lockers will be retrieved by custodians, bagged, and stored for later curbside pick-up. Unclaimed belongings will eventually be donated and/or disposed of.
