Mental Health Week
As part of our division-wide focus on improving student mental health and wellness, NLPS has a number of activities planned for our schools and communities over the next few weeks leading up to Mental Health Week (May 3-9).
We would like to express our appreciation to Imperial Oil for supporting our “It Starts with Hope” project, which will include a variety of initiatives in our schools that focus on hope. We are very excited to introduce this to our staff, students and parents, and will have more information to share in the coming weeks.
Here are a couple of the things we are working on:
- It Starts with Hope T-Shirts: We will be offering students, parents/guardians, staff and community members the opportunity to help spread hope in the community and show their support for our mental health initiatives by purchasing an “It Starts with Hope” T-shirt. T-Shirts are available for sale through School Cash Online. The deadline to order will be April 11.
- Signs of Hope: We were overwhelmed by the response to our Positive Signs campaign last year and are thrilled to see many of the signs are still posted throughout our communities. With the support of Thinkwerx and Imperial Oil, we will once again be able to give away 400 signs featuring messages of hope for students, staff and parents/guardians to display in our communities. Keep an eye on our social media accounts and engage.nlpsab.ca for information on how you can win one of the signs.
Please use SafeArrival or call the school if your child will be absent. If your child is sick, please call the school directly. 780-594-5623

Please do a self-screening with your child in the morning. If your child has a fever, cough, shortness of breath, or a loss of sense of taste or smell, your child must isolate for 10 days. If your child gets a COVID test and is negative, they can return to school when symptoms resolve.
If your child has ONE of the other symptoms; chills, sore throat, painful swallowing, runny nose or congestion, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, achy muscles and/or joints, unexplained loss of appetite, pink eye, fatigue, and general unwellness; please keep keep them home and monitor symptoms for 24 hours. If symptoms resolve after 24, they can return to school. If symptoms do not improve, worsen, or a new symptom arises, call 811 or use the AHS Online Assessment Tool to check if testing is recommended. When all symptoms resolve, your child may return.
If your child has TWO or more of the other symptoms, keep them home and monitor symptoms for 24 hours. Call 811 or use the AHS Online Assessment Tool to check if testing is necessary. Your child can return to school once symptoms resolve, as long as it has been at least 24 hours since their symptoms started.
