Welcome to the John Brant Public School Website

 

Remembrance Day Assembly! CANCELLED UNTIL TOMMORROW!

As a result of transportation being cancelled our student population will be greatly impacted. We will not be able to make a determination on todays assembly until approximately 10 a.m. when we have a better calculation of student attendance. If a need arrises to postpone we will be observing a moment of silence and the assembly will occur Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. when all participating students will be back.

THANK YOU!

On behalf of the students, staff and families of John Brant, we would like to thank the Ridgeway B.I.A. for their generosity and kindness. Our Halloween parade through the school was a tremendous success. The number of local businesses that attended and/or donated loot for the children was overwhelming as was the number of family members to support the kids. “It takes a village to raise a child” was on full display! Thank you, from John Brant.

 

 

Bus Safety for Parents and Students

At the Stop - To arrive 5 to 10 minutes at the bus stop prior to the scheduled, and stand on the inside of the sidewalk/ shoulder away from the roadway.

When the Bus Arrives - Line up in a straight line, wait for the bus to come to a complete stop and the doors to open, and never touch the outside of the bus.

Getting on the Bus - Get on the bus one at a time, hold the handrail as you climb the stairs, and go directly to your seat and get settled.

Riding on the Bus - Sit with your back to back of the seat and your bottom to the bottom of your seat with your school bag on your lap, and use your quiet speaking voice so that the bus driver can concentrate on driving.

Getting off the Bus - Stay in your seat until the bus comes to a complete stop, only get off the bus at your school or at your bus stop, look for your parent/ guardian before you get off the bus if that is your routine, and always tell the bus driver if you do not see your parent/ guardian at the bus stop waiting for you if that is your routine or if you missed the stop.

Crossing in Front of the Bus - Watch and wait for the bus driver to signal to you to cross the road once it is safe to do so.

Keeping our School Safe and Healthy

If you have a child with a Prevalent Medical Condition (Anaphylaxis, Asthma, Diabetes, and/or Epilepsy) we want to make sure we have a current Plan of Care to support your child.  

The Plan of Care form is a new document that replaces the Emergency Action Plan. All parents of children with Prevalent Medical Conditions are asked to fill out the new Plan of Care and submit to the school.

You can download the forms here dsbn.org/prevalent-medical-conditions.
