We are hoping that you had a great summer and that you are excited about the school year. The first day of school is Tuesday, September 7, 2021.
The first day of school is a shortened day with a staggered start. Just a reminder that all students should be wearing their masks when they arrive.
If you are a grade six student, please arrive at the school by 8:50 a.m. and gather outside the school entrance by the Hawksnest (playscape). We will have all our staff outside greeting students and ensuring they know where they are going. Your name will be posted with your division number beside it. Beginning at 9:00 a.m. grade six students will be called to the field and asked to sit behind a cone with their division number on it. At that time you will meet your advisory (homeroom) teacher and head to class.
At 9:20 a.m. Grade, 7 and 8 student divisions will be shared. Your name will be posted with your division number beside it. Grade 7 and 8's will be called to the field at 9:30 a.m. to meet their advisory teacher.
Please leave your supplies at home on the first day of school. When you have been assigned a locker then you can bring the rest of your school supplies.
Tuesday, Sept. 7th is a shortened day. Students will be dismissed at 10:30 a.m. Buses will be picking up students from 10:30 to 10:45 a.m.
Wednesday – Students should come with lunches and only necessary school supplies. This will be a homeroom-based day (regular School Day is 9:00 a.m. to 3:08 p.m.).
Thursday – The first day of full classes including PE and FAAS.
If you are or will be a school bus student you can check the school district website at www.sd63.bc.ca for more information and schedules. We will assist students on the first day with catching the correct bus.
If you have any further questions please contact the school at 250-656-1129.
Enjoy your upcoming long weekend and we look forward to the start of a great school year.
