Good Morning Marauders & Families!
Please review the following announcements.
TEXTBOOKS/LIBRARY BOOKS – RETURNS
We would like to collect textbooks and/or library books from our in-person students tomorrow morning (Friday, February 12, 2021). Any books that students no longer require, can be deposited in the boxes set-up at each of the student entrances.
LOANED CHROMEBOOKS and INTERNET HUBS
If your student has returned to in-school learning and you no longer require the devices loaned from Banting, if you can please have your student return it to the main office so they can be re-distributed, we would greatly appreciate it. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school to discuss.
Study Hall - Parents/Guardians - if you wish your student to be excused from Study Hall, a permission form must be completed on School Cash Online https://simcoecounty.schoolcashonline.com/. Currently we are not accepting telephone or paper submissions. Please note, if you submitted a form for Semester 1, you would need to submit another for Semester 2.
Permissions & Acknowledgements form – Parents/Guardians - If you have not already completed this form (Acknowledgement and Permission Form & Information and Computing Technology Appropriate Use Guidelines for Students), please complete ASAP. It is mandatory that each school year, these forms are reviewed, signed by parent/guardian, and submitted to the school.
If you haven't registered for School Cash Online, you will find the instructions to do so on the Banting Website http://ban.scdsb.on.ca/parents/pay-fees. Student ID numbers can be found in the parent portal or by calling the office.
