**Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and the uncertainty of what an École Oriole Park School Re-Launch will look like in September, we are cautiously providing a supply list for our parent community. We fully understand and encourage you to re-use as many school supplies as possible from previous years. Many of our families have been hit by challenging financial situations during the pandemic and we don't want you worrying about very specific name brands that cost a lot of money. Do the best you can, we are in it together, and we'll make whatever reality we have, work in the fall.
When planning for a successful year, please keep these basic necessities in mind to help your child be the best they can be. Although these items will not appear on your grade specific supply list below, your child does require these universal supplies to be the most successful at school:
- A backpack
- Indoor running shoes
- Lunch box
- Water bottle
To help parents through the madness of back to school shopping, we are providing parents a couple options for buying their child’s grade specific school supplies.
- Kindergarten to Grade 5 OP School Supplies List - CLICK HERE for a school supply list to purchase the supplies at your own discretion.
- School Start Program (https://schoolstart.ca/)
- This is an online school supplies provider which allows you to purchase the items individually as you might already have unused items from this school year.
- Items will be delivered to your home.
- To order:
- Click on https://schoolstart.ca/
- Then click on: “Parents Shop Here”
- Then click on: “Purchase School Supply Kits”
- It will ask you to choose the city, school and set up an account.
- From there you will choose the kit for the grade your child will be in.
- Late School Start orders will be accepted online until October 1, 2020 ($5 late fee will apply after August 1, 2020).
We hope these options provide the flexibility and convenience suitable for your child and family.
