Dear Parents and Guardians,


This letter is to let you know about the reason for our unexpected early dismissal on Thursday, February 26.


When the outdoor heating fuel tank was filled on Wednesday, a small amount of heating oil dripped over the side of the tank. As a result, an oil smell was noticeable yesterday in areas of the school next to the tank.


Students and staff were sent home as a precaution until the smell could be reduced by ventilating the building. Our fuel supplier started clean-up measures around the tank last night, and these will continue after school today.


Air quality testing has since been completed in the school and the levels in all learning spaces are safe and consistent with outside air quality. We are keeping the areas closest to the oil tank (staff room) off limits today to allow further ventilation and monitoring. Cancelling classes on Thursday was a precautionary measure to ensure a healthy school environment.


We apologize for any inconvenience to families. Please thank your child/children for their cooperation and patience yesterday morning. If you have any questions, you are welcome to contact me.




Cordelia Galant

Vice Principal







Please check out the changes made to the calendar in February and March.  An early dismissal and a school-based in-service have been cancelled!




Aldershot Elementary School is located on the outskirts of the town of  Kentville, the home of the famous Apple Blossom Festival. We are near Canadian Forces Camp Aldershot.

We are a Primary to Grade Five school with 265 students and 12 classrooms. 

The school is a one storey brick building. Each classroom is equipped with instructional technology and sound systems to enhance student learning.  Our building is fully wheelchair accessible.

Our playground is called Aldershot Community Park and is open to the community for use until dusk after school hours.  Our students, parents, PTA members, community partners and staff members have spent many hours maintaining and upgrading the playground area and the school grounds. 

Our school's mascot is a male lion named Alden.  His presence as he visits from class to class reminds our students to be respectful towards their fellow students and the adults in the school. Alden also keeps a watchful eye on our students and delights  in rewarding children who show respect for:

- themselves

- others

- their learning, and

- the environment. 

Alden encourages the 3Cs that support our school community:  Caring, Courtesy and Cooperation.
