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)

  • 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

 
 

 Reminder of our cell phone rule “Bell to Bell, NO Cell”. First time a student is using their phone at an inappropriate time, the phone will be kept in the office for the rest of the day. To communicate with your child, please phone the school office. 250-478-5571. Please don’t expect your child to text you during the day when they are focusing on schoolwork and friends. The office is there to smooth communication. Merci!
