What's Happening at HRES - June 13

What’s Happening at HRES - June 13, 2022

Late arrivals using School Messenger Safe Arrival system:   There is some confusion about late arrivals.  If your child will be late, you still select full day absence with the reason - absent with notification.  This lets us know your child is accounted for and they aren’t in school. (So your child is away and we are notified that they aren’t in school). 
When they arrive, we will adjust the absence to late arrival.   If you had the option to record “late”, we would assume they were in school.  Hopefully this provides some clarity.

Black Excellence Day – June 17:  This is the first year NS public schools will be celebrating Black Excellence Day and students and staff are invited to wear black t-shirts to celebrate and stand in unity in support of the success of Black students.  Black Excellence Day is an opportunity for students to see themselves represented, acknowledged, and celebrated and to grow understandings that create an inclusive education for all students.  It is also a day for every student to both acknowledge and celebrate Black Excellence.
Black Excellence Day celebrates Black Achievements, Black stories, Black Art, Black innovations, and Black people and their communities. This is also an opportunity to commemorate the ongoing struggle by Black Canadians for Civil and Human rights and to remember that small actions can make BIG differences.
