  4. AFTER SCHOOL CARE FACILITATOR We would like to officially welcome our new ASC Facilitator, Vanessa Bainbridge. There are some new procedures for ASC parents so please review the email sent out on Wed, Nov 1st and pass it along to anyone else who will be picking up your child. The first time a family does a drop-in, they will also receive this information
  5. LICE911 FOLLOW-UP A technician from Lice911 has been booked to come back for a follow-up head check on Thurs, Nov 16th. There has been an additional case reported since the initial screening so we ask that you remain diligent in checking and treating your children for the full 3 weeks following the initial treatment. Please also remember that as part of the service to North Star, if you have any questions or concerns you can contact a representative through www.LICE911.com. In addition, you can also visit their clinic in Maple Ridge where parents can bring their children to be screened. There is no charge for any screening done in their office so it’s handy for students who were absent and the extended family of those who were diagnosed.
  6. ANNUAL FUNDRAISER The North Star Annual Fundraiser is in the process of being re-scheduled for January. Please continue to collect auction items for this fun event and stay tuned for the new date announcement!
  7. PRO D DAY Our next Pro D Day is schedule for Fri, Nov 10th. School will not be in session.
  8. REMEMBRANCE DAY is scheduled for Mon, Nov 13th. School will not be in session.
