  • Dear Parents and Guardians
  • It seems hard to believe that September is over and we have been in School for a month. Having said that we have had a very busy and productive September at Huron Heights. It has been my extreme pleasure to work with all of the students and staff at Huron Heights. The students have settled in nicely and there has been lots of exciting learning that has taken place this fall. The teachers use your child’s planner for communication and I urge you to check it daily and use it if you have questions or concerns. Communication is one of the most important keys to harmonious and successful partnerships. Our Daily Physical Education program continues to be a very positive experience for our students especially our Dance Party Fridays. We welcome parents to come to our Dance Party Fridays that are held in the Gym from 9:00am-9:15am.  With the beautiful fall weather we have been able to offer our Daily Physical Education program outside. Each morning at 8:50am when the entry bell rings our students remain outside and actively participate in Daily Physical Education until 9:02am. Currently we are having the students run/walk the perimeter of our school. When the weather changes that we can no longer offer this outside students will participate in Daily Physical Education in their classrooms and in the gym. We were delighted by the number of families who attended our Welcome Back barbeque and open house. Your ongoing support is crucial to successful learning.

New Changes for Students to Attend School
Starting in the 2014/15 school year, three additional vaccines will be required for students to attend school. Requirements align with the Publicly Funded Immunization Schedule for Ontario and are based on year of birth. Provincial laws mandate that all students enrolled in school must have proof of immunization to specific diseases unless a valid exemption is in place. These vaccines have been part of the routine vaccination schedule; therefore, most students will have received these vaccinations.

  • Meningococcal Vaccine
  • Meningococcal type C vaccine: Required for students born on or after September 1, 2004 and under 12 years of age. This vaccine has been provided to children at one year of age since 2004.
  • Meningococcal type A,C,Y,W-135: Required for students born on or after January 1, 1997 and 12 years of age or older. This vaccine has been provided to grade 7 students since September 2009. This vaccine will be offered to the grade 7 students at school in the fall. A consent form will be sent home in September.
  • Pertussis (Whooping Cough) Vaccine
  • This vaccine is provided in a combined tetanus, diphtheria, polio and Haemophilus influenza B vaccine at two, four, six and 18 months of age and again with tetanus, diphtheria and polio at 4-6 years of age. A booster dose of pertussis is provided with tetanus and diphtheria vaccine during adolescence, usually at 14-16 years of age.
  • Varicella (Chickenpox) Vaccine
  • This vaccine is provided at 15 months of age and since 2011 again at 4-6 years of age. All students born on or after January 1, 2010 must have two doses of this vaccine or physician documented immunity of having the chickenpox disease.
Please report new immunizations to Public Health as updates are not routinely sent from your physician’s office. If you have any questions regarding your child’s immunization record, please contact Public Health. If your child needs to be immunized and you don’t have a health care provider, please call Public Health to make an appointment.
