Alternate Programming for Students Not Attending Play Parkland
Parents/Guardians of Grade 3 to 6 Students
Mrs. Brownlee and I are writing you to give clarification for those families whose students are participating in Play Parkland activities at the Tri-Leisure Centre.
Due to supervision and safety concerns, Muir Lake School will not be able to accommodate activity switches due to supervision and facility constraints. Students are equally divided into groups and those respective group then do their assigned activity. Therefore, if we are switching students around from class to class, student numbers become unequal and this can place extra demands on Play Parkland staff regarding equipment, instruction and ultimately, safety.
Given this, we want to explain our process for the future; if your child does not want to participate in their given session, or for some reason they are unable to participate in Play Parkland, we will be providing these students a supervised study hall space at the school where they can work on supplementary work, get extra help and/or literacy and numeracy activities.
