With the bad weather predicted for Friday we were left with a choice of cancelling the trip or getting to Moncton before the storm which is expected to begin Thursday evening.  Otherwise, if we wait and school is cancelled on Friday we will not be allowed to drive that evening.  It is also not permitted to drive from 12-6am in the morning to get us to the airport for Saturday morning.  The superintendant and the Transportation manager have recommended in order to ensure our safety and the safety of the bus driver we will now be leaving Thursday at noon and we will stay at the airport hotel in Moncton for Thursday and Friday night.  It is not an option to travel on your own to Moncton in the bad weather. There is a Tim’s near the hotel and students can order in Thursday evening and Friday.  Students should pack food and snacks as there will still be little time on our travel day for getting food from restaurants.  . There is a hot complimentary breakfast provided both days (starting at 3 a.m.). We understand that this is a disruption for everyone, but we have a fabulous team working on our behalf: the district has rescheduled the bus, SEVEC is paying for the two nights at the hotel, and the chaperones are making arrangements to have their courses covered and leave their families early.  The hotel has even agreed to provide us a room for team building and streaming the Olympics J!  If you have any questions you can call or text Mrs. Halas Moulton at 506 521 4809.

There have been a lot of changes since we last met.  Unfortunately, the school in Swift Current was not able to get enough students for the exchange and after a lot of background work on the part of SEVEC we were able to be re-twinned with Lambrick Park Secondary School in Victoria, B.C.  The dates are similar to, but not exactly, what we had agreed on before.  We will be traveling to Victoria February 15-22, and they will be visiting us April 19-26.  Students will still be missing a total of seven days of class.  Please note, we will hosting over Easter weekend with a family day scheduled on Easter. Our numbers of twins are almost perfectly matched as they have 32 and we have 29; but the ratios are not the same, as we have 23 girls and 6 boys and they have 14 girls and 18 boys.  This means that despite our best efforts to make sure that everyone is happy and comfortable with their twins, there are going to be a lot of boy-girl twins and three students will need to host an extra twin. We understand that there are a lot of changes that may not be ideal for some families.  If the changes do not work, and you would like to pull out of the exchange, we will try to find a replacement.  Because the exchange is coming up quickly, we would need to know by January 14th.  If we can find a replacement your deposit can be returned to you.  To do list Rules to remember Get government issued identification Payoff remaining balance ($350) by January 31st Establish contact with twins once they are available and inform hosting families of any allergies, or special considerations Pack no more than one suitcase – pack for layers and rain (average February temperatures of 9OC) Make arrangements to have a peer take notes for you in all your classes and to catch up on all assignments Maintain good attendance, good behaviour and good grades Be respectful (online as well!) Be open to new experiences Be positive– not everything will be perfect but everything is a learning experience – No complaining! Make an effort to help others to enjoy their trip Communicate clearly – if something is bothering you work to solve your problems No driving for student participants (including ATV’s, boats, etc.) Students who do not respect the code of behaviour could be sent home at your expense   If you have any questions, please contact the school 535-7160 or by email  You can also call or text 506-521-4809 before or during the trip with any questions or concerns (I have unlimited calling so please feel free).
