· To help prevent getting or spreading the flu at school, it is important to:
- Get a flu shot every year (everyone over 6 months of age).
- Teach children to wash their hands often, for 20 seconds.
- Teach children to cough or sneeze into their arm or a tissue, not their hands.
- Avoid touching hands to face.
- Clean and disinfect common surfaces.
- Keep children home when they are sick.

· Get your kids excited about eating veggies & fruit by getting them involved in the kitchen. Cooking is educational and fun! Kids will learn about food, nutrition, math and science, and will develop important food and social skills. Research shows that children who prepare their own food are more likely to eat it. Cooking helps children build confidence and important life skills, for example:
- They develop motor skills like chopping, slicing, grating, and mixing.
- Learn how to organize ingredients.
- Follow instructions.
- Learn the difference between a teaspoon and a tablespoon, and different measuring cups.
Cooking is also a great way to spend time with your child, share cultural traditions, and talk about your day.
· Drinking water is good for you and your teeth! Other drinks (for example, juice) can leave sugars on your teeth, which may cause cavities. Drinks such as pop are high in acid, which can harm your teeth. Water can keep your mouth healthy by “cleaning” food away, and because it’s sugar-free, it won’t leave any sugar behind on your teeth. Drink up!

You are receiving this notice to inform you that the login credentials that you use to check your child(ren)’s transportation arrangements are changing. Starting late fall 2017, the ID and PIN that you have been using will no longer be valid. This also means that the fridge magnet program will come to an end, as those numbers will no longer be valid.
The new method of authentication will be the OEN (Ontario education number) found on the top of your children(s) report card, along with choosing your school, grade and birthdate. Those items must match exactly as the school has it in their system.
New JK’s for September will be issued a temporary ID until their OEN is assigned. The OEN will be found on their first report card/progress report.
If your child is waiting for the OEN because they moved schools and the new school does not have the OEN in place, the school can provide you with a temporary ID (The Trillium/Trevlac ID)
The new format will be nine digits and will be inputted with two dashes as follows: ###-###-###
In the case of the ID for the Greater Essex County Disctrict School Board the temporary (Trevlac) number format will be: ###-###-##
If at anytime you need the Student ID, or the OEN you must go through the school. These numbers will NOT be given out over email or on the phone from Student Transportation.
Remember that it is important to check your transportation arrangements each summer after Aug 15th (and again closer to first day of school), as routes, times and stops may have changed.
