"I Day" Information for January 19th & 26th

​As the end of the semester draws near we will have two "I Days": one on Friday, January 19th and one on Friday, January 26th.  "I Days" are dedicated for certain students to complete outstanding assignments or other assessments. There are no scheduled classes on these days. An explanation of the day is below.

Students in Attendance:

1 - Any student at-risk of failing or currently failing a course is to be in attendance.

2 - Any student missing assessments but passing the course, is to be in attendance if requested by a teacher to complete missing assessments.

3 - Any student who has arranged to present on their Wednesday inquiry project is to be in attendance.

If a student is on top of all of their coursework, has presented their inquiry project, and has not been asked to attend by a teacher, then they are not required to attend school on these days.

Day Structure:

  • It will be an "I Day" for grades 8-12.
  • There will be no blocks during these two days.
  • The day will run from 9:10 – 3:25 with lunch being at 1:00.
  • Students will attend for the time that it takes to complete all of their required assessments.
  • Students will go to the classroom of the teacher that they are completing the assessment for.  The library will also be open.

Teachers will inform the student to be in attendance on the "I Days." The expectation is that all students below 50% or at risk of falling below 50% will be in attendance and parents/guardians should be contacted.

As always, marks are available through the MyEd BC portal and have been all year.  If you have problems logging into the portal, please contact me at Karma.Taiji@sd71.bc.ca

Please do not hesitate to call the school if you have any questions about this at 250-334-2428.​

Using the MyEd Portal -

The MyEducation portals give students and families online access to information about attendance, grades, transcript and credits. Depending how teachers are using the program, it will also list homework assignments, missing assignments and other important information about classes.

You should have received an email with a user name and generated password to access the MyEducation Parent Portal for your child attending Mark R. Isfeld Secondary.  To access your son or daughter's MyEd account, use the link available through the www.isfeldschool.com webpage.  This must be done on a computer or laptop; not a mobile device.  There is a computer in the school foyer for parents to use.   MyEd is found in the Utility Links button in the top left part of the page. This will take you to the Log In page.  

Once in the site, you can see on the front page any changes in attendance or grades in the last 30 days. You can narrow it down to one or the other by choosing one of the categories. There is also a To Do box with overdue assignments, assignments due today or tomorrow. If the teacher is putting future assignments in their gradebook, they will show up here, or in the calendar top tab.

Most parents will want to see the Academics tab, with current progress and marks. The name of the class (in blue) is a hyperlink taking you to the details of the class you click on. A side tab of assignments will show individual assignments in the class. If the assignment is marked, it will show up as a score. Sometimes an assignment has a "no score" beside it – this means that the assignment details are public, but marks have not been entered by the teacher. On the Academics tab, you are also able to email teachers directly. By clicking the Options button (top left) and send email, a pop-up will appear with all of your son or daughter's teachers. To send the email to only the teachers you want to, you X out the others in the box.

There is a help button at the top left of every page (except the first page).
