STUDENT LEARNING SURVEY

The Student Learning Survey is a chance for you to give your input about our school. We want to hear your feedback! This survey is open until April 30th.  https://www.awinfosys.com/SurveyFull1/central/main/access.asp

At our school, students in grades 4 and 7 will be completing it in class.  We look forward to receiving the valuable feedback from this survey.

K-12 HEALTH CHECKER APP

One of the most important factors to keeping schools safe is a daily screening for any COVID-19 symptoms, and having students and staff stay home if sick.  Daily health checks continue to be required. To support daily screening, a new K-12 health-checker app has been developed for students and families and can be found at:
K-12 Health Check (gov.bc.ca)

EARLY DISMISSAL – APRIL 15

All students will be released 3 hours early on Thursday April 15th. Please see the staggered release schedule below:

11:30 = If you have more than one child you would like to pick up at the same time, siblings grade 3 and up are welcome to pick up their younger siblings as needed and meet you at a designated pick up spot.

If both/all your children are Grade 2 or younger, we ask that they stay with their class and leave at the times below:

With an early dismissal on Thursday April 15th many teachers are preparing for parent teacher conferences or other forms of communication. Information for each individual class will come from your student’s teacher.
