  •  Administration Changes at Huron Heights Public School
I would like to take this opportunity to inform all of our families that there will be changes to the Administration at Huron Heights Public School effective September 2, 2014.
I would like to welcome Mrs. Carolyn Harris who will be the new Vice Principal.  Many of our families might remember Mrs. Harris from her years at Elgin Market Public School.
Ms. Avis Delgarno will be returning to Huron Heights for the 2014-2015 school year.
Ms. Krupp will be going to Ecole Port Elgin Saugeen Central School to teach Full Day Kindergarten.
Mrs. Janet Owens will be going to KTTPS in the Full Day Kindergarten Program as an ECE.
I would like to take the opportunity to offer my gratitude for all the support that Mrs. Tanya Leppington provided the students, staff, parents and myself in her role as Acting Vice-Principal this year.  Mrs. Leppington enjoyed her role as Acting Vice-Principal but also enjoys her role as a classroom teacher

Staffing and classroom organization discussions for the next school year are well underway.  However, we would like you to know that changes can occur in our plans that may result in a reorganization during September.  As for all students in Bluewater District School Board, placement in classes during the full month of September is considered tentative and is subject to change while the school’s final enrolment is determined.  Therefore, there is potential for your child to have a change in their classroom or teacher after school begins.  The changes will hopefully be completed by early October.  Class placements will happen on September 2nd, 2014.  If you are planning on moving, or know of someone who is moving to our area, please let us know ASAP.  Thank you for your understanding and trust in our professional decision with regards to the education of your children, our students.  It is greatly appreciated.

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.
