School Starts Soon!

We hope all of our students and their families are having a wonderful summer! Can you believe we will soon be back in class?! Just a few quick facts for you to know about the coming year…

– students who are new to Sorrento need to register for school, and the official new student registration date is Tuesday Aug 27 from 8:30 – 1:30 (if this date and time will not work for your schedule, please contact the principal to arrange an alternate plan). Parents need to bring the child’s birth certificate, health care card, and a document showing proof of residency to register.

– first day back to school is Tues Sept 3, for all students EXCEPT kindergarten students
– kindergarten students have a special schedule which is being mailed to their home in August
– hours for students in grades 1- 5 on Sept 3 will be 8:10 – 11:05, and buses will run early to accommodate this
– after Sept 3, hours will be 8:10 to 2:05
– please send a snack for your child on Sept 3, and after Sept 3, please send a snack and a lunch each day for your child
– we aim to be โ€œnut awareโ€ and ask that parents do not send food containing nut products
– we do not have access to microwaves for student lunches
– we do not have parents buy their own school supplies, and instead ask them to pay a school fee for supplies for the year
– school fees for kindergarten students is $35/year, and for students in grades 1 – 5, the fee is $45/year (this includes the agenda book)
– fees are due by Sept 30
– students do need to provide their own backpack, indoor non-marking running shoes, a lunch bag or box, and a box of Kleenex for the classroom
– on Sept 3 and 4, students will return to the classroom they were in last year – on Sept 5 we expect to be able to assign students to their new classroom
– students who are new to Sorrento this year will be assigned to a classroom with age/grade mates for Sept 3 and 4
If you have any questions, please email the principal, Ms. Jodi Garries at jgarries@sd83.bc.ca
Enjoy the rest of your summer! โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ–
