Important Reminders....

School Parking:   

  • Just a reminder to please be respectful of our school neighbours when choosing a place to park, while visiting the school. Our neighbours have reported that families are choosing to parking in driveways or to block access to driveways. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation, as these parking issues are causing our neighbours some significant challenges when leaving for work or returning home.
  •  Additionally, there is a designated spot, at the back of the school (along the fence on Rambler Road), for a student with special needs.  Please avoid parking in this designated spot.

Students that will be Absent from School or Arrive Late: 

  • If your child will be absent from school, please call the School Safe Arrival line at (250)-658-4002.  If your child arrives late for school, please have them sign in at the office before going to class.
