SCHOOL REGISTRATION FOR SEPT 2021
Registration dates for new students for the 2021-2022 school year have now been announced. For more information please visit our website’s SCHOOL REGISTRATION PAGE
PAJAMA DAY – Friday December 18th
We are doing everything we can at the school to mitigate the spread of COVID. We kindly ask that you do not send in snacks or treats to share with your child’s class. We know that this is a fun, kind thing to do, but we need to keep our entire school community safe. Part of keeping them safe is not sharing at this time. Rather, you may consider making a donation to a local food bank.
We appreciate that many families like to give gifts to teachers at this time of year. Due to risk of transmission of COVID-19 we suggest that families donate money or food to the local foodbank rather than give a gift to their teacher. At this time of year and especially this year there is tremendous need throughout our community.
2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR REGISTRATION
Dates have been released for registration and school change requests for the 2021-2022 school year. See our website for more information. Please note if your student already attends John Stubbs you do not need to re-register each year.
LOST AND FOUND
We have arranged for our lost and found to be placed outside for parents to have access to. We ask that you please wear a mask and practice social distancing when viewing the lost and found racks. More information HERE
TERM 1 REPORT CARDS AND POINTS OF PROGRESS
For Elementary Students some teachers will be sending home paper report cards by December 18th while other teachers have been providing families with points of progress throughout the term. If you are unsure on the delivery of your student’s progress reports please email your student’s teacher directly.
For Middle School Students some teachers will be reporting through your MyEducation BC Family Portal Account, these reports will be published on December 4th. Other teachers have provided points of progress throughout the term. If you are unsure on the delivery of your student’s progress reports please email your student’s teacher directly.

Thank you to all families for supporting John Stubbs’ efforts in following COVID-19 protocols. By wearing masks, you are helping to keep our students, staff and families as safe as possible. If we as a community are to limit the spread of COVID-19, we all need to make sure we are doing our part by wearing masks and socially distancing while dropping-off and picking up your child(ren) before and after school. Thank you for helping us keep the John Stubbs Community safe by doing your part!
Please note that some teachers are required to lead their class through the courtyard up to the field each day after school. We ask that you help them get there safely by social distancing and making plenty of space for the class to pass by.
