Visitors to the school
- Access to the school by non-district personnel, including parents, is by appointment only. The principal must approve all visits.
- There will be a custodian work while classes are in session. He will be disinfecting classrooms when students are not in them (outside for PE, recess, etc.). He will also be disinfecting the restrooms multiple times throughout the day.
Student transportation on buses will resume, however, capacity will be reduced to 50 percent allowing only one child per seat. Only siblings may sit together. First Student, the contracted busing company for the school district will clean and disinfect buses in accordance with the BC Centre for Disease Control protocol. Given the reduced capacity on buses, where feasible, we encourage parents/guardians to transport their child to and from school.
Hours of instruction
8:43-2:30 with a morning recess break and lunch break.
In the morning, children should proceed directly to the exterior door of their classroom
to line up prior to their teacher welcoming them into their classroom. Please do not send your child to the school prior to 8:30am as we do not provide supervision prior to that time. In point of fact, the closer to 8:43 your child arrives, the easier it will be for us to maintain physical distancing before the school day starts. The areas for lineups will be marked with indications provided for appropriate social distancing.
