Welcome Back! Return to School Info

Welcome back! We hope you enjoyed a restful but fun summer. Summer is a great time to explore, read, relax, and connect with friends and families. We are eager to hear all about your adventures soon. We also look forward to welcoming you and your children to school next week.


We know that returning to school is exciting, but it can also be an anxious time. Please know that we are committed to fostering safe learning spaces for all our students. Please reach out to the office at any time if you have questions about our new school year (604-668-6209).


On Tuesday, September 6th (next week!), students entering grade 1-7 will attend from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. We will meet as a school on our back grass field (south side). Returning students will be placed with their classmates from last year. New students will meet with a Resource teacher and be brought to their new group. We have many new teachers this year. Each one will have a sign indicating which old division they are welcoming. Our teachers will bring their students into the school for opening day activities. At 10:00 a.m., our teachers will bring the students back to the field for dismissal. They will share the regular entry and exit doors for the rest of the week at that time.


Wednesday, September 7th will be the first full day for students in grade 1-7. Students can enter their regular entry doors. Please ensure your children come to school dressed for the weather and with a water bottle, snack, and lunch. Students will be welcomed to their classes at 8:40 a.m. (instructional time begins at 8:45 a.m.). Students are dismissed at 2:45 p.m.
