Welcome to December!!!

你可以用到的ESL新闻

  1. 随着冬季天气的来临,所有家庭都应该意识到冬季恶劣的天气和风暴会影响学校和家庭的安全。

当有延迟或关闭的通知时,GCS学校跟随PEI 公立学校部门。有时候只有指定某些学校关闭时,通知会显示“family of schools 家庭学校”,这时GCS学校跟随Bluefield,Colonel Gray和Charlottetown Rural这些学校一同关闭。如果这些学校出现延迟或关闭现象,GCS学校也一同关闭。

如果有“延迟一小时”的情况,学校从10点开始。如果出现“学校关闭”或者“全系统关闭”的情况,则当天不上学。

有许多方法可以知道当天学校是否延迟或者关闭,以下是方法:

  1. 我们将公布在GCS学校的Facebook (Grace Christian School – Prince Edward Island),推特Twitter (@gcs_pei), 和Instagram (gcspei) 账号上。
  2. 每个PEI广播电台会定期通知延迟和关闭 (公校部门)
  3. CBC 风暴中心网站(http://www.cbc.ca/stormcentre/pei/) (公校部门)
  4. PEI广播电台网站也会在网站上通知(公校部门)
  5. 家长们可以选择加入GCS短信通知。如果当天学校有延迟或者取消,GCS将会发短信给家长并通知。这是一个选择参加的项目。如果您想要参加,请给Jordan Ellis老师 (jellis@gcspei.ca)发送邮件。邮件中写明您想要收到短信的电话号码。如果您去年参加了这个项目并且没有换手机号,您仍然在我们的系统中。

我们强烈建议您如果您还没有关注我们的社会媒体账号或者在短信系统上登记,请参加这些。

If school is closed (not simply delayed), any after-school or extra-curricular activities will also be cancelled (such as sports, after school care, clubs, etc).

如果学校当天关闭(并不是延迟),任何课外班或者课后活动都会被取消(体育项目,放学后看护,俱乐部等等)

ESL News You Can Use

  1. As the winter weather approaches, it is important that all families are aware of how inclement and stormy weather can affect schooland the safety of our families.

When announcements are made for a delay or closure, GCS follows the PEI Public Schools Branch.  Alternatively, sometimes only certain schools will be delayed or closed and will be announced by “family of schools”; GCS follows the Bluefield Family, Colonel Gray Family, and Charlottetown Rural Family of schools.  If any of these are delayed or canceled, GCS will be also.

In the case of a “one hour delay”, school will begin at 10:00am, while a “school closure” or “system wide shutdown” results in no school at all for the day.

There are a number of ways to know if there is a school delay or closure; they are as follows:

  1. We will post on the GCS Facebook (Grace Christian School – Prince Edward Island), Twitter (@gcs_pei), and Instagram (gcspei) accounts.
  2. Each PEI radio station regularly announces delays/closures (as “Public Schools Branch”)
  3. The CBC Stormcentre website (http://www.cbc.ca/stormcentre/pei/) (as “Public Schools Branch”)
  4. The PEI radio station websites also post delays/closures on their sites (as “Public Schools Branch”)
  5. Families can opt in to a GCS text message notification.  If school is delayed or canceled, a text message can be sent from GCS to one cell phone in the family to notify of the delay/closure.  This is an OPT-IN ONLY If you would like to use this option, please email Jordan Ellis (jellis@gcspei.ca) with the cell phone number that you want to have the text message notification be sent to.  If you opted in last year and still have the same cell phone number, it is already still in the system.

We strongly encourage you to follow us on one of our social media platforms and to register for our text message system for cancellations if you haven’t already.

If school is closed (not simply delayed), any after-school or extra-curricular activities will also be cancelled (such as sports, after school care, clubs, etc).
