Port Guichon Elementary School

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We are looking forward to seeing you and our students on Tuesday Sept 8th. Just a reminder that the first bell rings are 8:45am and that students are dismissed at lunchtime (12:10pm) on the first day.

If you still need a copy of the school supplies list, please click here.

Please see the below for information about first day procedures.


Tuesday, Sept 8th

-First Bell: 8:45am

-Students in grades 1 to 7 will return to their last year’s classroom. Students should line up in the same places as they did last year, even if their teacher has moved schools.

-Once the students are in the school Mrs. Hoskins will bring her Grade 1 students to the library.

-Resource room students will meet outside the resource room at the daycare entry  at the front of the school. We will have staff ready to meet the school bus to help support our resource room students.

-All new registrations and international students need to report to the office.

-We will have a short assembly after at approx. 11:00. Parents are welcome to attend.

-Dismissal: 12:10pm

Wednesday, September 9th:

  • All students (except kindergarten students who are in “gradual entry”) will be in full attendance for the day. Students will be dismissed at 1:45pm
  • Please follow the same morning procedures as Tuesday morning.

Thursday, Sept 10th (regular school hours) 8:45am - 3pm

Please keep in mind that we are working hard to finalize classes and that this process may take some time. Therefore, it is uncertain when students will find out who their teacher will be and move into their final classes. We know that students are anxious and excited to find out who their teacher will be and that this process can be difficult. We ask for your patience and understanding as we work through this process, as it is of the upmost importance to make sure that class placements are done to the best of our capabilities.

Gradual Entry for Kindergarten

Every year we have a gradual entry for Kindergarten students. This involves a phasing in of small groups and shortened attendance times, allowing children to adjust to a new school environment and families to develop relationships with teachers. If your child is in kindergarten please follow the Gradual Entry Schedule that you received at the end of last school year. If you need further information about the Gradual Entry Schedule please contact the office.
