Winter Weather Procedures!

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

When announcements are made for a delay or closure, GCS follows the PEI Public Schools Branch.

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 program.  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).

 

我们所有的学生都在为考试而准备。以下是一些您需要知道的事情:

期中考试于1.29-2.1举行

如果因为下雪而停课,考试会被推延到第二天

以下附件的考试时间表可以帮助你的学生准备

考试结束后学生需要被接回家

考试周没有课外辅导班

如果学生没有考试,该生不需要来学校

 

因为学生要面对一些很重要的大考,他们很自然会觉得紧张。以下是一些考试的小提示:

限制电子设备的使用。学生没法很好的集中注意力如果有电子设备在旁边

确保你正确地学习。这听起来没什么用,但是如果你确定信息,你就少一些担心的原因。不要等到最后一分钟再为考试紧张复习。

考试前一点睡足觉。

考试当天吃一顿健康的早餐。含糖的零食,咖啡因饮料和空卡路里不会给你更多的能量来考试

认真听清考试指导。在老师发下来试卷后,确保你知道该做些什么。

先读一遍考试。如果有什么不清楚的题目,在你开始前,别慌张:提问老师。

把每一个问题都单独的关注解决。在你考试的时候,如果你不知道答案,不要纠结在这里。你应该跳过这道题,先去答你知道的题,在最后再回来做这一道。

放轻松。如果你太过于紧张而想不起来任何知识,你可能需要小小休息一下。

已经做完了试卷? 虽然大多老师都会让你提早交卷,通常是个好的主意如果你花一些时间进行检查。
