Principal's Message October 2020
Mr. Dean MacInnis

I cannot express how great it is to see students in the hallways of Sir John. We have come to the end of our first month back and we have learned a tremendous amount about how school is functioning under these new guidelines. The measures that we have put in place are to ensure all students and staff are safe, as this remains our top priority. When we put together our returning to school plan it was without students in the building, thus we will be continuously reflecting and adjusting protocols throughout the semester.
 

In some classrooms, students will be able to have the proper distance without requiring a mask, but may need to wear it when interacting with staff and other students. When eating, drinking and outdoors, masks are not required. In smaller rooms and classes with more students where we are unable to have the needed distance between students, we will need those students in these situations to wear masks in class.
 

This year, we welcome many new staff members including Grade 8 staff and students from William McDonald Middle School. We are happy to have them here and hope they have a great year! We also say goodbye to staff members that have left our school. Rod Kennedy (retired), Melanie Durepos (moved), Colin Kennedy (moved), Jessica Havill (moved), Edna McFaull (retired), Shellie Trimble (Chief Jimmy Bruneau School) Helen Wong (UofC), Sophie Thieriault (moved), Jason Craig (RLN), and finally, Maureen Tonge. Maureen spent her entire teaching career here at Sir John teaching Art and Yoga for the last 28 years. Maureen passed away recently after a courageous battle with brain cancer. Her energy and passion will not be forgotten. She will be missed dearly.
 

We want all students and families to understand that we need to be safe in order to have in-person instructional time. If you have any questions or concerns please email us at sjf@yk1.nt.ca or call 867-669-0773.
