On the last day of school, Thursday, June 28th, we will be having our end of the year assembly and saying goodbye to our Grade 7 students. The assembly will begin at 10:30, and hopefully run approximately 1 hour (that might be optimistic!). After the assembly ends, parents are welcome to take their children home for the beginning of the summer holiday. Students will have to go back to their classes to pick up their belongings and their report cards. If children are riding the bus that day, please be aware that the buses will be picking up at noon, and children will arrive home shortly thereafter.
The staff and administration at Raft River wish all of the families in our school community a very safe and happy Summer break! School will restart again on the 4th of September. Watch for information regarding opening day school hours late in August.
Today we received some tragic news at Raft River. This morning there was an accident involving a vehicle and sadly one of our Grade 3 students was injured and died as a result.
We are deeply saddened by the loss of one of our students and extend our sincere condolences to the family. Because official details are not yet being released, pending notification of close family members, we have not yet shared anything with our students, but will plan on doing this first thing tomorrow.
I realise that some of you may already have more information than what we have shared here so far, so please use your own discretion as a parent as to what you choose to share with your children. Be assured that our conversations with students tomorrow will be supported. Counsellors will be at the school tomorrow to offer support both to our students and to offer guidance to parents should they need it.
If at any point you have concerns about how your child is dealing with this situation please contact me at the school.
Lori Bradstock, Principal
