Summer Break!

We hope you are enjoying your summer in the Shuswap! In spite of some pretty extreme temperatures and smoky skies from forest fire activity, we still live in a spectacular place.

Just a reminder, school starts on Tues. Sept 7, 8:15 – 11:19 (this excludes kindergarten students – they will have their own gradual entry schedule mailed to them in late August).

Enjoy your time with family and friends!

Welcome Back! Happy New Year!

Happy 2021! Wishing all of our students, staff, and families a safe, healthy, and happy new year. School starts back again on Monday Jan. 4, 2021. The hours continue as 8:15 – 2:17 daily for all of our students, grades K – 5.

Goal Setting Conferences and Early Dismissal

Just a reminder that we are having an early dismissal for students on Thursday Nov. 19 at 11:17. Buses will run 3 hours earlier as well, so please make arrangements for students to be met at their bus stop 3 hours earlier than usual.

Early dismissal is happening because we are once again holding student goal setting conferences as the first term formal report. This is a very important part of the new curriculum, and since students are the center of the plan, please ensure your child is participating in the conference with you and their teacher.

Due to the pandemic, most conferences are being held virually, or by telephone. If you have informed your child’s teacher that this method is not possible for you, please attend the conference in person by wearing a mask/face covering, hand sanitizing at your child’s classroom door, and sign in with your child’s teacher. We will not be using the front door to access the school for goal setting conferences.

Thank you for participating in this important component of your child’s education!
