If you are coming into the school to visit your child’s classroom, please sign in at the office and get a visitor’s pass. Thank you

Please make sure you have pre-arranged a meeting spot for after school pick-ups. If your child does not find their pick-up person, it is our policy that the students come back into the building and check in at the office. The hot lunch program is available to everyone. *If you need financial assistance in order for your child/children to participate in this program, please contact the school regarding our payment options.
Please remind your child to leave their toys at home. This includes sports equipment. We have plenty of toys at school and this will help prevent arguments.   Thank you for your help with this. Attendance at school is important to us. Please try to have your children at school on time and ready for school. If your child is late, please remember to sign them in at the office before heading to class. If your child is going to be away, please call the safe arrivals phone line: 250-478-1447 ***Please refrain from dropping your children off at the front of the school. Matson Road is the preferred drop off location. ***
