Back to School! :)

Dear Parents – 

We look forward to welcoming our students back into school tomorrow!  It will be mandatory for anyone dropping off, or picking up students throughout the school day to sign them in or out.  This sign in/out sheet is in the main entrance between the outside and inside doors to the main office.  It has been there since September, and now more than ever we need people to use  it.. As we return to classes, some modified measures are needed to align with the Circuit Breaker and current public health guidelines. They include:

  • All school-related sports games are paused. However, existing practices may continue, as can existing before and after school activities.
  • All community use of school facilities will be paused, effective immediately and until March 21, 2021 (end of March Break). 
  • All field trips involving busing are canceled until further notice.
  • Daycares and early learning centers operating out of schools will continue as normal, including the before and after school programs.

As we communicated earlier this week, parent-teacher interviews will be held virtually or by phone. Your school will be in touch with you to make arrangements if they haven’t already. 

Please note that there are no classes on Friday. 

We will be following the same masking guidance as before the Modified Red Alert. You can find the details at

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Parent-Teacher Interviews

Dear Parents and Guardians – 

While we expect to be back in school on Thursday, March 4, we anticipate some public health restrictions may continue. As a result, parent-teacher interviews WILL continue as planned on Thursday, March 4 and Friday, March 5, however, they will NOT be held in-person. This will be a phone interview and it will occur on your normally scheduled interview time(s) you have signed up for. If you prefer a Google Meet format instead of a phone interview, please email your teacher and let him/her know so they can arrange. 

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding,

QEES Admin

Meal Support for Students During School Closure

As per the most recent COVID-19 update, meals ordered between Monday, March 1 and Wednesday March 3 will be canceled.

Those families who placed meal orders for these days can expect to see a meal credit(s) on their account during the next ordering cycle.

With all schools closed until at least Wednesday, March 3, we understand that this may leave families who depend on school meal programs in a difficult situation.

If you are a family in this situation, the Department of Education and Lifelong Learning would like to extend the offer of a healthy meal for each school day beginning Tuesday, March 2 until Wednesday, March 3. Meals will be delivered directly to families’ homes daily.

If you would like to enroll in this program, please contact us by Monday, March 1 at 4 PM by email: or by phone: 902-438-4895.

Message from PSB

Parents & Guardians of QEES:

This evening, Premier Dennis King and Dr. Heather Morrison announced the implementation of a three-day, province-wide Modified Red Alert, as a result of the increased number of COVID cases and to give Public Health sufficient time for COVID-19 test results to come in. Effective Monday, March 1 at 12:00am through Wednesday, March 3, a number of new restrictions are in place:

Among the new measures, Islanders are strongly encouraged to stay at home as much as possible, only going out for essential purposes.

This means all PSB schools will be closed to students Monday through Wednesday.

Details include:
– Child care facilities that operate inside schools will remain open.
– We will not be permitting student/parent entry to the buildings at this point (except child care facilities) and we will not be permitting student retrieval of items at this point.
– Please note that we will not be moving to remote learning over the next three days.
– We will communicate further about parent-teacher interviews in the next couple of days.

We have been working closely with the Chief Public Health Office. There is no indication that any school has been affected in the recent COVID-19 cases. The current plan is to re-open schools on Thursday and any necessary modification of that plan will be communicated as needed.

Take care,

Norbert Carpenter
Acting Director of the Public Schools Branch
