Tanisi, Tawâw, and Welcome
The staff and Punnichy Elementary Community School welcome you all back to another adventurous year of school. We are so excited to see you again and to meet those of you that are new to our communities.  As we head into the new school year, we are encouraged by the level of respect and understanding everyone has for the challenges we faced and overcame.  
We will continue to observe many procedures such as hand sanitization, respect for physical distancing, and cleanliness of our materials and equipment.  As a mask-friendly school division, we welcome the use of masks if that is your choice. 
I am excited and thrilled to be a part of Punnichy Elementary Community School as your administrator and look forward to growing and learning with you and your students! Many thanks to our custodians for creating a clean and safe environment for our students to return to. Their hard work and dedication is clearly visible with the pride they take in making our school sparkle! Thank you to the staff for their dedication to preparing for our students and ensuring that this year will be one of learning and growth.
Finally, a huge thanks to you and your families for taking care of our students during the summer and helping them transition back into a positive and open learning environment starting on September 1st! Our bell schedules have changed slightly so please check that out in this handbook.
We can’t wait to see you all on September 1st!
Yours in education,
Shane Watts
Punnichy Elementary Community School
