School-Within-a-School

HOW THE MODEL WORKS 

When students and staff are welcomed at their host school, they will have:

  • their own space for classes just like they would at their own school building
  • opportunities to work with their principal and teachers
  • opportunities to socialize with friends and make new ones

SPACE FOR STUDENTS

There’s plenty of classroom space at Jan Reimer School to host Shauna May Seneca students and staff whiletheir school building is under construction. Both schools will:

  • open with fewer students than the schools can hold to make sure they don’t fill up too quickly while the communities are still growing
  • have closed boundaries, meaning only students from primary attendance areas can attend

Classrooms for both schools will be grouped by grade throughout the building. This means there will be opportunities for collaboration and buddy classes between the two schools. Both schools will share common spaces, such as the art room, drama room, music room, gymnasium, library and learning commons.

SCHOOL SCHEDULE

The schools will operate on the same schedule for start and end times, recess and lunch. View school schedules for Jan Reimer School or Shauna May Seneca School.

PICK UP AND DROP OFF AREAS

There will be two pick up and drop off lanes on the east side of Jan Reimer School. These are drive-through lanes to prevent traffic congestion, annd parking in these lanes is not allowed. Visitor parking stalls will be available.

SCHOOL EVENTS 

Our schools are looking forward to working together to plan special school events, like assemblies and concerts, that all students can participate in.

MOVING TO SHAUNA MAY SENECA SCHOOL 

Furniture for Shauna May Seneca School will be moved out over the winter break and won’t disrupt classroom time. All schedules, classes and routines will be the same when classes resume at the new Shauna May Seneca School building on January 8, 2018.
