Staffing update and Belongings

Staffing update and Belongings
Posted on 05/21/2020

Dear Parents/Guardians, 

We miss our students, our community and our daily interactions.  We hope you are all staying safe and healthy.

It is that time of year where we are getting our staffing information and are able to share out what changes there will be and what our tentative organization will be for September.  Our organizations are always tentative until we get our numbers in September, as there are families that move in or out between now and September.  

We would like to say thank you to Ms. Corcoran and Mrs. McPhee.  They will not be returning to us in September.  We appreciate all that they have  given, and done for our students at Tamworth .  We wish them the best as they continue their education careers.  We would also like to thank Ms. O’Hearn.  Her 2 years as our Vice Principal have flown by.  Due to system needs Ms. O’Hearn has been transferred to Lancaster Drive Public School.  We would like to welcome Mrs. Shannon Boutilier to our staff as our new VP.  

We would like to welcome Mrs. Lindsey Roantree.  She will be the new Gr. 2/3 teacher.  

Our staffing compliment has remained the same for September, but the way that the numbers are looking in certain grades our organization looks a little different.  We currently have the following class organization:

JK/SK - Mrs. MacLean, Ms. St. Croix

SK-1 - Mrs. Woods

2-3 - Mrs. Roantree, Mrs. Veno

3-4 - Mrs. Olsen

5-6 -TBD (Mr. Minielly will be on a leave for the 20/21 school year)

7-8 - Mrs. O’Rourke

French - Mme. Bishop

Office Administrator - Mrs. Clement

Head Custodian - Mrs. Hickey

Evening Custodian - Ms. Free

Student Support Teacher - Mrs. Veno

EA(s) - TBD

As our numbers continue to evolve, our organization may change, and staff may change.  Our staffing process for the system is a fluid one and changes may occur throughout the rest of this year and into September.  

As you are now probably aware all LDSB schools will remain closed for the remainder of 2019-2020 school year due to COVID-19 as announced by the Premier and Minister of Education on May 19, 2020.

You probably have many questions about retrieving belongings and items from the school.  The board is currently working on the process for you to be able to come and get the personal items of your children.  They are working with KFLA Public Health to determine the safest way to do that.  As soon as the process is approved and we know the steps that have to be followed we will be contacting families.  

As of now the school access is still extremely limited and we are following the protocols set out.  Teaching Staff still do not have access to our schools.  

We thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through this together.

Thank you 

Chad Taylor, Sara O’Hearn
