Home / School News / Message from the Principal of Ruth King


Hello Families,

Once again I hope you are all doing well.  I have had a chance to touch base with some parents/guardians over the last few weeks but wanted to let you know that I am truly missing all of you and the children.

This is just a reminder that the Frozen Food Program is continuing as usual and will be handed out on Mondays from 12:00pm to 12:45pm for Ruth King families and 12:45pm to 1:30pm for Spencer families.  If you have children in both schools, you can come in any time between 12:00pm and 1:30pm.

The meals will be handed out in the caged area by the intermediate playground.  Please remember to follow the physical distancing rules stated,  wear gloves when picking up the food, and bring a bag to put your food in.  If you have not signed up and would like to join the program, please email me back and I will add you to the list.  Please remember to pick up your food, as our freezers will only hold so much food and I will have to give your food away if you do not pick up during these times.  If these times do not work for your schedule, please let me know and I can make arrangements with you individually.  Take care and be safe!

Here is a message from the District:

Please remind your families that our school play grounds are off limits. Our fields are open for individual play (not for groups or organized sports) and that though we love pets, dogs are not allowed on school grounds and we appreciate families’ continued attention to that.

While schools are closed to in class instruction, most school zone speed limits don’t apply. However, the 30 km/hr speed zones around schools where we are providing care for the children of essential service workers (Saseenos, Colwood and Lakewood) DO still apply. It is important that we are mindful of this for the safety of the students and staff at those sites.

Respectfully,   Ms.V. Ives
