Dear Parents/Guardians of Cordova Bay Kindergarten students,


Re:  REVISED Kindergarten Gradual Entry Plan for September 2020


Welcome new Cordova Bay Kindergarten Families!  Further to the email we sent your family in the spring, this letter is to provide you with your child’s REVISED Kindergarten Gradual Entry Schedule for September 2020.


K Orientation: CANCELLED – The tentatively booked orientation session from 11:00-12:00 on Tuesday, September 8th due to revisions around health and safety, has been cancelled.


Gradual Entry Schedule: Your child was assigned a GROUP A, B or C, for gradual entry purposes, in the former spring plan sent to you by our school secretary Mrs. Tammy Cowley. Your child’s grouping, assigned in the spring, remains the same for the revised schedule below (A, B or C). We are happy to resend your child’s grouping, for your reference, if you are unsure or perhaps did not receive it in the spring. Please contact the school, if you have any questions or 250 658 5315.


Here is a summary of the REVISED gradual entry schedule. All children attend every day of the gradual entry period in their assigned group A, B or C:  September 11, 14, 15, 16 and 17. PLEASE meet at the front of school on Sept 11th.
