Message from the Assistant Head

Exams are underway, and we are preparing to officially end our school year next Thursday at our Closing Ceremonies and Graduation.

The end of the school year is always bittersweet. As we look forward to summer adventures and new frontiers, we are also sorry to bid farewell to the graduating members of our community and to officially conclude an immensely fulfilling and rewarding year together. We are so excited to see what the future has in store for our graduates and look forward to welcoming them back to Fieldstone as part of our Alumni Association.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend and a restful and restorative summer ahead.

School Messenger SMS Messaging

On January 22, we sent out a text message from our school messaging system for you to “opt-in” receiving school messages.  This would have shown up as 978338 on your cell phone. These messages will not be sent very frequently.  They are used for communications that require immediate responses such as school closures and emergency events.  Please respond to this message with a Y or Yes to be able to receive our communications via SMS messaging.  You can also just send a text saying Y or Yes directly to 978338 to be part of this communication.  Please note that this service will only work for Canadian cell phone numbers.


Character Values and Positive Behaviour Recognition

Fieldstone students represent the values of Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship. Each week, students will be recognized from classes, clubs, and community activities for demonstrating these 6 character values.

Please find our showcase of recognized students here.


Fieldstone Uniform: Updates

In the interest of helping our students to adhere to uniform expectations, we are transitioning to black rather than grey pants. For September 2020, students’ pants should be black only. For next year, we will accept grey or black pants during the transition period.

Uniform items may be purchased from DGN Kilters. For directions to the uniform store, or to purchase Fieldstone uniform items online, please click here.

Please see the uniform poster here for specific expectations. All shoes must be black and polishable dress shoes.

Signing-In and Signing-Out:

Fieldstone is a safe community. To maintain this standard, we need to know who is in the building and who is not in the building at any time.

  • Visitors are reminded to sign-in at the front desk upon arrival to the school. They will be issues visitor passes.
  • Students who are over 18 and need to leave school property for an emergency or personal appointment, need to sign out at the front desk.
  • Students under the age of 18 can only sign out with parent or custodian permission.
  • Students are expected to attend class on-time and thus should use transition time to prepare for the next period of learning. There is not enough time in transition time to leave school property.

No Smoking or Vaping Policy:

A reminder to students that smoking/vaping is not allowed within 20 meters of the school perimeter and is strictly prohibited on school property. This is both a school policy and provincial law.


Emergency School Closure Protocol:

  • Emergency school closures due to inclement weather, or for any other reason will be announced, no later than 6:45 a.m. on the day of a closure. The announcements will be as follows:
  • An e-mail blast to all addresses that normally receive the weekly Friday File
  • An announcement on the website
  • Announcements via local media outlets that announce school closures

Homestay Families: A Valued Part of our Fieldstone Community

We would like to invite Fieldstone families to be part of international students’ Canadian experience. Homestay families promote Canadian cultural immersion by integrating students into family life. Short-term options are available, as we look forward to welcoming two students from Europe next year on their “Year Abroad” experience.

Interested families are asked to please contact Ms. Kristine Foy by email kfoy@fieldstonekcschool.org or by phone 416-854 4897 today.


Please stay up to date with school events by checking our weekly Friday File throughout the year.
