Report Card Information
First term report cards will be carried home by students on Tuesday, February 20th. These reports contain important information for both parents and students. They provide a summary of the learning that has been accomplished throughout the term, and offer invaluable feedback regarding next steps for student achievement. On the front page of the report, parents will find marks and comments related to the six learning skills and work habits. These critical skills help to build the foundation for successful learning in all students. For parents wishing to support their child(ren) in setting goals, each component includes sample behaviours, which have been taught throughout the term in our classrooms. If any questions or concerns arise from reports, please contact your child’s teacher for an interview.

Every Minute Matters
Did you know that missing just 10 minutes of school a day means nearly 33 lost instructional hours over the course of a school year - that is the equivalent of 5 full days! 20 minutes a day would be 10 lost days. That is a lot of valuable learning time for our students!
Help us make every instructional moment count, by ensuring that students are at school on time and are only picked up early when absolutely necessary.
Safe School Arrival Program
In our efforts to ensure the safety of each of our students, we ask that parents contact the school if their children will be absent. Our office is open from 7:30-3:30. Should you wish to call outside of office hours, you may leave a message on our answering machine, at (613) 476-6475.
Nut Allergy Alert
Queen Elizabeth School is a nut and peanut free zone. We have a number of students in our school community with life-threatening nut allergies.
In our attempt to provide a safe environment for all members of our school community who live with anaphylaxis, we ask that all snacks and lunches be free from any nuts or nut products. Please carefully read the labels of all foods sent to school, to ensure that products do not contain traces of nuts or nut products. Should a student bring items containing nuts or traces of nuts, the products will be removed from the classroom immediately, and returned home at the end of the day.
Thank you for helping us to ensure the safety of our students, staff and guests.
New Bus Loading Zone in Front of School
The small parking area and “loop” directly in front of the school will not be available during morning and afternoon drop off and pick up times. Our accessible buses require access to the accessibility entrance during these times, so this area will be a bus only zone between 7:45-8:15 and again from 2:15-2:45.
It will continue to be available for parents and visitor parking throughout the school day.
Morning Yard Information
In order to ensure student safety, we ask that students who walk or are driven to school DO NOT arrive at school prior to 8:00.
At 8:00, parents may drop students off at the primary gate. Staff will greet students, who may then proceed to the yard until the entry bell rings.
For safety purposes, only Board employees are permitted on the school grounds.
