Dear VTT Families,

There has been a steady stream of emails of late in anticipation of next week's return to school, particularly with the introduction of COVID-19 health and safety protocols.

As we head into the long weekend, we are consolidating much of the information we have shared this past week to help you find everything you need for a smooth transition back to VTT.

When in doubt, you can always refer to two useful links on our website: COVID-19 Communications and the Back to School page (hyperlinked below).
PikMyKid: Have You Downloaded the App?
Every parent must download, install and set up the PiKMyKid app from the iTunes App Store or Google Play before the start of school. This app will be used to streamline daily dismissal. A separate email will explain morning drop off (anytime between 8:15 a.m. and 8:35 a.m.) and afternoon pick up procedures.

VTT Bayit
We look forward to welcoming your children to the VTT Bayit Program! We could not be more excited for the launch of this new initiative.

The VTT Bayit will begin on Monday, September 14th. It will provide students in SK to Grade 3 a space to move and play after school; students in Grades 4-7 will benefit from some quiet time to finish their homework, read a book or play a quiet game. Both programs will run from 3:30-5:00 p.m. daily (until 4:30 p.m. on Fridays during regular dismissal Fridays and 3:30 p.m. on early dismissal Fridays). The last 15-20 minutes of the program will include dismissal. All students must be picked up no later than 5:00 p.m. Please allow adequate time for pick up. The Bayit will not operate on half-day dismissal days nor on Pro-D days.

We have updated our registration policy and procedure, so please read below closely: 

The deadline to cancel registration, with a refund, is September 18th at 10am. After this time, all registrations will be considered final, including any new registrations made after this date. Should you cancel after September 18th at 10am, there will be no refunds or credits provided. 

Registration will be ongoing and therefore you may add days at any time provided there is space on your desired day. This includes day of drop-in registration. However, please note that all registrations made after September 18th at 10am will be considered final, non refundable and non transferable.

VTT PAC Calendar
Our VTT PAC (Parent Action Chavurah) has created a photo-filled 2020-21 calendar to help parents stay organized and on top of important school event and holiday dates. 
Only $20 (via e-transfer). Proceeds support PAC community initiatives.
Don't Forget to Send a Labelled Water Bottle!
This year, due to COVID-19, drinking fountains will be off limits for all students. However, students can refill their water bottles at any of the fountain dispensers. Please don't forget to send a labelled water bottle with your child every day.
