School Update

Aug. 31, 2017

​I am excited to confirm that our new school will open on Monday, Nov. 20, 2017. Students will remain in the same classes with the teachers and classmates they start with in Braeside School.

Thursday Nov. 16 & Friday Nov. 17 will be non-instructional days. We will use these days to organize the supplies and materials and prepare classrooms for the first day of school in our new building.

School Hours
Our school hours will stay the same.

Ron Southern School will be a wonderful place for all of our students to learn and grow. I can’t wait to see all of our students and parents in September.


Tori Healing, Principal
