Dear Parents/Guardians,


Re: Slow Start Morning Supervision


Beginning on Monday, November 25, 2019, we are going to pilot a “Slow Start” morning supervision program.  Students will be given the opportunity to go directly to their classrooms at 8:20 when school supervision starts.  They will put away their outside clothes and belongings, then move into quiet classroom activities such as books, drawing, colouring, having a snack or other calming activities to begin their day.  There will continue to be a supervisor on the playground to ensure all children make it into the building.


The regular school instructional day will begin as usual at 8:40.    


This is an effort to help students get their day off to a good start and have a chance to regulate themselves before engaging in the important work of learning.  


If you have any questions or concerns about this initiative, please do not hesitate to provide your child’s classroom teacher or myself with feedback at


Mahsi Cho,
