Emergency Fire Drill
On November 6 at 2:10 pm, Fultonvale School underwent an Emergency Fire Drill/Evac to Secondary Shelter designed to prepare and practice the actions our school community must take in the event of a real life scenerio. Each of our classes were asked to respond to our Alarm signal and act accordingly as outlined by our procedures. We would like to thank all of our students and staff for undergoing the drill in a quiet and deliberate manner. Please take some time to discuss the drill with your child and why it's important that we work together to ensure each other's safety during an emergency.
A guide for Parents and Guardians on School Emergency Preparedness can be found on the following document:
Our practice is based on Restorative Practices of creating and sustaining relationships.
We don't really use the terminology of bullying. We try and focus on the positive interactions and we deal with negative misunderstandings through repairing relationships by not casting blame but that everyone has a responsibility for their own actions, thoughts and words.
Through sharing circles, we promote communication, listening, understanding and forgiveness.
All the while, putting ourselves in the other person's shoes.
We repair relationships through listening, understanding and also asking all to reflect upon how they can repair and make it up to the other person or persons.
We are a family at Fultonvale where everyone's job is to keep themselves safe and each other safe. Our other job is to learn and to help others learn.
All classes practice sharing circles to share, celebrate and communicate if there are misunderstandings or poor choices. Elementary students practice sharing circles, sometimes daily or weekly. Our junior high students practice this at least every second Monday morning and also as needed. We give each of our students a voice.

K-Rite Construction Company will soon begin work on the Modernization of our school. During the first phase of construction, one of the areas that will be affected is our Division I playground in order for work to begin on our new gymnasium. In the upcoming weeks, the playground will be fenced off and the take down process will begin. Once the playground is fully disassembled it will be placed into storage for future use. In the meantime, this leaves us without a playground for Division I.
In order for us to continue to offer your child the program and activities that they have received thus far, we have decided that it would be in everyone’s best interest to work out a schedule that would allow both Divisions I & II to share the remaining playground. Park N Play Playground Design Company has verified to us that the existing Division II playground is completely safe for all students aged 5-12. There are 2 pieces of equipment that we, as a school however, have decided to not allow Division I to use. The high spinning swing and the climbing wall that are located in the northeast corner of the playground will be off limits to Division I students as to ensure your child’s safety.
