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)



A great way to ensure you are staying connected with communication from the school is by downloading the John Stubbs app.

Hot Lunch Ordering is Live!

  • Head to this site to register and order (Access code: JSPAC2022): https://johnstubbs.hotlunches.net/admin
  • You must register for an account each year even if you had an account last year
  • Once registered, add your students to your account and link them to a classroom
  • Menus for October-December are available to order now (Jan-Apr will be live on Dec. 1; May will be live on April 1)
  • Order deadline is 8 days prior to the hot lunch date (e.g. Deadline for Oct. 7 lunch is on Sept. 29 at 11:59pm). Deadlines are firm.
  • We need volunteers to make hot lunches a success. Sign up here if you can help out: https://signup.com/go/uvMHrZg
  • If you can only help for a short time on Friday, that’s ok! Sign up on the sheet, come and help, and we’ll find another volunteer to cover if needed
  • Questions? DM me or email me at jshotlunch@gmail.com 🙂

We have a few volunteer opportunities coming up, so if you are interested in helping, please email our PAC President, Alison Jopp at jspacpres@gmail.com

  1. Popcorn helpers. We need people to pop popcorn every Tuesday for the school year. We will train you and set you up for success, you just need to be available Tuesday mornings from around 8am to 11am. This will be a rotating schedule, so depending on how many people sign up would be how often you would help!
  2. Emergency lunch helpers. We would love some help making sandwiches for students who may need a lunch throughout the day. This is also a rotating schedule and would take about 20 minutes on the days you are scheduled. It must be done by 10am on the day you are scheduled and we will train you!
  3. Popcorn supply shopper: we need someone to hit up the Warehouse Store in Esquimalt a few times a year and purchase kernels and bags. We will provide a list and reimburse you for your purchases.
  4. Popcorn lead contact: this would require you to be available in case a scheduled helper is sick, or to provide help if a situation arises. You would be the main point of contact should a volunteer have a question, so a flexible Tuesday schedule would be ideal, but not totally necessary.

If any of these opportunities sound like a match for you, please email Alison at jspacpres@gmail.com to discuss further.

Looking forward to hearing from you! -Alison
