General Procedures

Our Communication Bridge

Our regular school newsletters and frequent updates are the most reliable form of information. The newsletter is published the first week of every month. You'll find a copy of it on our website under announcements, as well as on our Twitter feed.  We suggest you read them together with your child to review and anticipate the happenings at our school. Our Community School also provides a calendar to families each September with important dates pre-marked.


School assemblies are held the first Friday of each month at 11:10am, unless posted otherwise. Students are recognized for their work in class and a presentation of the past month activities and events will be shown. Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend assemblies.

School Absence

Your cooperation in notifying the school is appreciated. You may call in student absences to the Community School Office at 604-487-9022, send a written message to the school with a sibling, or email the principal.  If your child must leave the school during the day please ask the secretary to use the "sign-out" book in the office to record the time and reason. Please ensure all emergency contact names and numbers are up to date. While most absences are unavoidable, please be aware of the connection between good attendance and school achievement.

Prolonged Absence

When a student is hospitalized or confined to home for a prolonged period of time, the services of a home/hospital teacher may be available. Please contact the school office to take advantage of this service.

School Closure

In the event of heavy snow or power failure, please listen to local radio station AM 1280 (CHQB) or FM 97.2 (The Eagle), or visit the school district website for information on school closures.

After school program

After school programs are offered through the Community School Office. Please call 604-487-9925 for more information.

Lost and Found

These many items are stored on the shelves in the main hall across from the office.To lessen loss please make sure your child's name is clearly marked on ALL school items. Please encourage your child to check for lost items before replacing them, at least once a term. We have a "Lost and Found Parade" once a month to reunite lost items with their owners. At the end of each term the remaining items are donated to a charity.
