Communication to Families (Elementary)
Dear AMRLS families,
As many of you are aware we are celebrating Winterlude this week as a whole school by taking part in a number of winter-themed activities. On Friday from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm students and staff will be celebrating Winterlude asynchronously. All families and staff are encouraged to go outside to play in the snow. Students will be provided with choice boards of activities but any outdoor play is encouraged. We hope families will share pictures of their play during this time with their teachers. With parent permission, we will put together a slideshow to be shared on Morning Announcements. Staff will be sharing their outdoor play photos as well. We look forward to hearing about the fun students had playing in the snow!
As you may have seen through AMDSB social media accounts, all report cards will be uploaded and available for viewing by the end of the day on Friday, Feb. 26. There has been a new parent-portal developed to improve ease of access to student information. Please self-register if you have not yet done so. For more information and to self-register please see the Board Webpage linked here. If your email does not work during the registration process please call the school secretary, Mrs. Freiter at 519-527-0111 ext. 112 to update your current email in our system.
Dear AMRLS Families,
Unfortunately, the technical issues with the Student Information Portal continue board-wide. The IT team is working diligently to resolve the issue. We will notify you as soon as it has been resolved.
Thank you for your patience and understanding,

This Spring, all elementary and secondary students from Grades 4 to 12 in Avon Maitland will be participating in an online school survey for students called the OurSCHOOL Student Survey. Please find the details of the survey implementation below.
About the OurSCHOOL Student Survey:
● Allows students to share their feedback anonymously on their experiences at school, school environment and school improvement programs.
● Participation in the survey is voluntary, however, all students are encouraged to participate.
● The time required to complete the survey may vary, but it is designed to be completed in approximately 30 minutes within one of the synchronous learning sessions with teachers.
If you do not want your child to participate please send an email to email@example.com. Please send this email prior to 4 pm on Monday, May 3rd, 2021.
Survey measures include such topics as behaviours and attitudes linked to student success, emotional and social well-being and physical health. For more information about the OurSCHOOL Student Survey, please visit thelearningbar.com.
