Our school was informed last week that the second round of immunizations, for elementary aged children, will not occur after all. Health Canada has determined that the first round of vaccines will be sufficient for children aged 3-9 years.
Children under 3 will still need to get a second needle.
However, children in the 3-9 year age group with chronic health problems are still recommended to have the second shot. If this applies to your child please contact Public Health @ 778-6102.

Here's the scoop, Croft is officially getting our new school web site off the ground this week. We are "very excited"!!!!
Why you might ask??
Because students and teachers will be able to upload lots and lots of "cool information" that will help keep our families and community informed of all the great things that happen at our school each day.
Check out our very first posting - the "November Newsletter" - but this is just the beginning.
Expect to see podcasts, student digital media projects and a whole lot more real soon.
