COVID Updates

Thanks for your cooperation and support as we continue to navigate COVID protocol updates. In the last week, the OCDSB reinstated the mandatory use of masks in all schools. At RBPS, most of our students and staff had chosen to continue wearing masks indoors when the mask mandate was dropped in March, so this shift back to masks did not represent a significant change to our daily practice. There is information on the OCDSB website about the mask requirements, and families seeking an accommodation/exemption from the requirement may complete this online form.


Staffing Information

In the past week we welcomed Edward Shammas to RBPS as our school’s Designated Occasional Teacher (DOT). The DOT’s role is to fill in for any staff member who is absent, so many of your child(ren) may have the opportunity to meet Mr Shammas in the weeks and months ahead.


RBPS Book Fair

The RBPS Book fair is back! We will be having an in-person, book fair on May 3, 4, 5, in the Library. Each class will have a chance to come and shop for excellent books and other fun items like pencils, erasers, and fancy pens.  At this time, we are not able to host parents at this Book Fair, but we will share a link where parents may browse and purchase items online. All of the money raised will go towards buying new books for the library and Makerspace.


Pizza Days at RBPS

Thanks to our RBPS School Council parent volunteers, Pizza Days at RBPS will be returning for the remainder of the year. Every Wednesday for 8 weeks, from  May 4 – June 22, pizza will be available for students in Kindergarten - Grade 6. Please note that pizza must be ordered online in advance - there will be no option to purchase pizza at school. The cost for one slice of cheese pizza for 8 weeks is $20.00, and the deadline for orders is Wednesday, April 27 (no late orders will be accepted). There will be no refunds unless the school is closed. If your child is absent, you may call the school before 10 AM to request that their pizza be put aside for pick up at the school.
