    Placement Notice for September 2016.
    by Mrs. S. Zryd - Wednesday, 11 May 2016, 12:24 PM

    Placement Requests for September 2016: We value your input and although we may not be able to meet everyone’s request we will certainly take your concerns and requests seriously when we assign children to their new classes.  I do not know which teachers will be assigned to the specific classes.  Our staff will meet and go through a process that considers the following factors. Please send requests to the school by June 1, 2016.

    This list is not in priority order:

    The learning style of the student

    The child’s physical and social maturity

    The child’s intellectual development

    The age of the student

    Behaviour issues and class dynamics

    The placement which will afford the child a good chance of success

    Parental information

    The best interest of the school

    Although the school will not consider requests for a specific teacher, we invite parents to provide us with information relating to your child. Please describe for us what you feel would be the best learning situation for your child. Please deliver this information to the office before June.

    Stranger Danger Information
    by Mrs. S. Zryd - Wednesday, 11 May 2016, 11:40 AM

    Please review the “Stranger Danger” material (attached) with your child/children. 

    We are reminding Aberdeen Elementary students to be stranger danger aware, and to go to a safe adult (parent, teacher, principal, support worker) immediately if they have a concern. 

    Children (and adults) must be stranger danger aware and remember the following:

    People who look friendly are not always nice. Keep safe from strangers and people you do not know very well with these tips:

    • Always tell your parents where you are going.
    • Try not to walk anywhere alone. Walk with a friend.
      Don’t take shortcuts through the woods, a back street, alley, or empty lot.
    • Bad people do not always look mean or scary.
    • Do not get close to strangers. Make sure you have room to run.
    • Don’t tell your name or address to a stranger.
    • Never take candy, money or gifts from a stranger.
    • Never go with a stranger to help look for a lost pet or play a game.
    • Never get into a car with anyone you don’t know.
    • If a stranger bothers you, run away and ask an adult for help.
    • Know safe places you can go—a police or fire station, the library, a store or a friend’s house.
    • If a stranger follows you or grabs for you, yell real loud. Shout, “I don’t know you,” so people know you are in trouble. Fight back and make as much noise as you can.
    • If anyone touches you in a bad way, say “NO.” Tell an adult.
    • Tell your parents about places you don’t feel safe.
    • Talk to your parents and come up with a secret code word. Never go with anyone unless they know the secret code word.

    If you are home alone:

    • Know how and when to call 9-1-1.
    • Never open the door to a stranger.
    • Never tell anyone on the phone you are alone.
    • Do not tell callers your name, phone number or address.
    • If you don’t like what someone is saying on the phone, hang up right away.
