Textbook Return and Locker Content Collection (June 17- 19)

Dear Boyd families,

As we approach the end of June, we are turning our attention to some year-end tasks including locker clean out, textbook return, and yearbook distribution. This process will begin next week by inviting students to come into the school (old gym) at designated times based on alpha last name and grade. Textbooks are valuable resources and our school needs to ensure they are returned in order to make sure these resources are available for students in September.

Your cooperation and help is needed. We know that students may also have library books, musical instruments, technological devices, and athletic uniforms that belong to the school. We kindly ask that all of these resources and materials are returned to Boyd. Please see below for the timeline and procedure.

Textbook Return and Lockers (June 17 – 19)

Students will be invited to the school over three days during the specific times listed below to collect all textbooks for all courses. 

All locker contents were individually collected in a bag and labelled with the student’s name. These locker content bags are located in the old gym and will be collected when students return textbooks. Students will be asked to return textbooks and library books found in the locker content bags prior to leaving the old gym. In addition, it is during this time that students should return musical instruments, technological devices that were loaned from the school (including charging blocks and keyboards), as well as sports uniforms (be sure to clean and wash at home beforehand).

Procedures:

Students will be invited to come into the school based on the assigned date and time listed below.

The process outlined below will be facilitated by administration and teachers.

  1. Students will enter the school from the main front doors and be asked to line up.
  2. Upon entering the old gym, students will return textbooks to designated areas organized by department
  3. Students will also have an opportunity to return other school materials such as:
    1. library books
    2. musical instruments
    3. technological devices (including charging blocks and keyboards)
    4. athletic uniforms (be sure to clean in advance)
  4. After textbooks and other school materials have been dropped off, students can line up to collect locker contents as applicable. 
  5. Students will be directed to exit via the doors at the back of the old gym near the boys’ changeroom leading outside to the bike racks between Boyd and the community centre. 

 

Yearbook Distribution (June 25)

Yearbooks will be distributed on June 25 by alpha last name.  In past years, this has been an opportunity for students to gather and say final goodbyes to friends and staff while enjoying the process of signing one another’s yearbooks. This year, due to physical distancing requirements, this tradition will not be possible. Students will be asked to collect yearbooks and exit school property promptly.  We wish to minimize the opportunity to gather and have organized the yearbook distribution to discourage any potential large gatherings.  

Our Business Assistant, Ms. Robinson, will be emailing parents a current fee statement during the week of June 15. Yearbook distribution will be based on students having a zero balance. Students will be required to return this year’s textbooks and other borrowed school materials (i.e. library books, technological devices, athletic uniforms, musical instruments) prior to being issued new ones next year.
