Welcome to Carleton Public School!

Achieving Success Together!

We are pleased to provide an outstanding education at Carleton Public School for our students. Innovative programs that meet the needs of all our students are taught by our dedicated and professional staff who care about your child. Our school provides extra-curricular opportunities that encourage the development of excellence, integrity and respect. At Carleton School, and throughout the DSBN, we all matter!

Our school entry bell rings at 8:50 a.m. Students should arrive and go to the playground between 8:35 a.m. and prior to 8:50. Students that arrive at the school earlier than 8:35 are still the responsibility of the parent(s)/guardian(s) unless they are attending a supervised morning club/practice. Students do not have access to the building until school supervision begins at 8:35.

Students must leave school property immediately after school unless staying for a school-sponsored event (e.g., an after school club or participating in a sporting event). Students watching after school sporting events must be supervised by an adult. If parents are picking up their children and remaining on school property (beyond the school day), they are reminded that they must supervise their children at all times.


School Advisory Council/Parent Council

Thanks to our Council members for their great support in organizing the BBQ for our Open House on Thursday, October 11. All parents/guardians are welcome to join the council and to help support the school through their work. The next council meeting is Monday October 22, 6:00 p.m. in the Carleton School Library Learning Commons.

No Food or Drink on the Schoolyard

We have a policy of no food or drink on the schoolyard at Carleton School. This helps us to keep the yard litter free as well as preventing bees and other insects and animals from being attracted to the playground. This policy applies to students arriving at school in the morning with food and drink. Students are encouraged to finish their food and drinks at the place of purchase. They will be directed off the school grounds to finish these. (Special school events are the exception to this rule.)

iPad Code for Math Dreambox

The code you will need when you first download the Math Dreambox app is 42cv/Carleton. This code is specific to Carleton School students.

Lost and Found Items

We have many lost and found items accumulate during the school year. At the end of each month, unclaimed items are donated to charity. If you notice that your child is missing an item (usually clothing) please feel free to visit the school and check the lost and found bin located in the front foyer.
