Please remember to send your child with extra snacks as we are finding that the children are extra hungry these days.  They must be growing!!  Our snack basket at the office needs to be filled 3 or 4 times during the day.
Please also remember to wear a mask at all times when you are on the playground with your child.  Please remind care givers who are dropping off and picking up your child as well.   And please also stay safely on the non-paved areas away from the staff when they are picking up their classes.   We all really appreciate your cooperation. If your child is going to be away from school, it is important to email your child’s teacher to let them know directly.
Spare clothes at school is always a good idea.  Please put some in your child’s backpack to keep at school.

We have received a COVID-19 notification from Island Health for Ruth King Elementary School.

Medium-Risk letters: these may also be sent by SD62 on behalf of VIHA to certain classes or cohorts. VIHA decides who these are sent to.

High-Risk letters: If VIHA decides that your child had high-risk to exposure, you will receive a high-risk letter and telephone call from school admin AND Island Health. 

Subsequent letters (medium-risk and high-risk) are sent out very quickly. 

SD62 will do its best to communicate with you, but please understand that ALL direction comes from VIHA. 

If you have any questions, please call 8-1-1.

Sincerely,

Vicki Ives
Principal
