By now all students should have brought home a permission form relating to this Friday's Viking Cup game.  The permission form permits students to attend the game as well as giving 3 options for dismissal after the game:

  • students who will be dismissed from NSMS and travel home in the regular manner
  • students whose parent/guardian will be picking them up from Panorama
  • students living in the Dean Park area who wish to walk home from Panorama

In addition, Friday is also an early dismissal day, with school closing at 2:00.  Regular bus runs will be in effect 1 hour early from North Saanich for those who use the school bus system.
