Dear Families,

Hope you are all doing well!  We just wanted to update you with the plan for Term 3 report cards and what you can expect them to look like.

The plan is that the report card will be emailed to you following the same procedure as Term 2 report cards (through email).  If you received the Term 2 report card via mail, that will still continue.  We are planing for Term 3 report cards to be delivered between June 24th and June 26th.  This is to give us some room in case any glitches arise.

We have been given direction from the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development as to what the report cards will look like.  What you can expect to see is a comment only for Math, English Language Arts/French Language Arts, Science and Social Studies.  All other subjects will be left blank.  You will also notice that there will not be a mark given for any subject; the column for where the mark should be will have N/A as will the Learner Profiles.

If you have any questions about the report card, please do not hesitate to contact Mr Stewart (sqmsprincipal@ssrce.ca) or Ms Thorburn (sqmsvp@ssrce.ca).

Thank you again for your continued co-operation and support!

Information Regarding Student Belongings Pick Up

June 2, 2020


Dear Families,

We hope you are all doing well and are keeping healthy and safe!  As we approach the final day of virtual learning we first want to thank you for your hard work with our students in whatever form you chose as a family.  We know that these have been challenging times but the entire staff at SQMS wanted to let you know that we see you and appreciate you!

Last week, SQMS staff was in the building emptying lockers and classrooms in an effort to gather students’ belongings.  All things were collected, put in a clear bag and tagged with the student’s name.  All of the bags were brought to the cafeteria and placed on tables by homeroom.

On June 8th and 9th, we are asking the student OR one member of his/her family pick up the belongings.  The schedule for who will come when is outlined below.  If one person would like to pick up the belongings for multiple students, that is welcomed and encouraged.

2. Please arrive on time.

3. Wait at the door marked ENTER using proper socially distanced practices (lines will be painted on the sidewalk to help)

4. Come into the lobby; drop off any items that belong to the school at the tables/people stationed in the foyer

5. Follow the arrows to pick up your child(ren)’s bag

6. Follow the arrows and leave through the door marked EXIT


We are hoping this will be a seamless process.  Please follow all guidelines given to keep everyone involved safe.
