Friday is a Spirit Day

A few further reminders about Friday’s Spirit Day:

  • Costumes that represent Indigenous peoples in Canada should not be worn. This devalues the culture and lived experiences of Indigenous peoples.
  • All costumes should be respectful of others. Symbols or objects representative of a person’s culture or religious beliefs should not be worn as another person’s costume. Costumes that caricature social identities through stereotyping should not be worn.
  • Due to Health & Safety precautions for Covid-19:
    • Students will not be permitted to use the washrooms to change into their costumes. Students wishing to wear costumes are asked to come dressed in them for the day.
    • Students may bring their own snacks.
    • Students will remain with their homeroom classes for any activities.

Masks Reminder

Just a friendly reminder to please send your child(ren) with more than one mask for each school day. Sometimes masks get wet, fall on the ground or simply need a change. We have many students coming to the office throughout the day requesting masks. Thank you for your support in this matter. VPPS Team
