SPRING CONCERT on Thursday, June 1st

Please note that the evening concert is completely at capacity so those that got your forms in on time will get your requested tickets.  There are still available spaces at the afternoon concert at 1:00pm.  Sorry for any inconvenience if you did not get the tickets you were hoping for.  Please be flexible in your thinking, as we have done our best to accomodate your wishes.  Thank you in advance.

Regular Reminders:

  • Please do not park in the staff parking lot or staff parking spaces on Matson Road when dropping off your children.  There are very limited spaces and if you are parked in the spaces, the Ruth King staff will have no spaces to park.
  • If you are running late, please drop off your child at the front door and let the staff take them to class.  You can pull up to the front doors and drop off.  There is staff there to greet their smiling faces.
  • If your child is going to be away from school, picking up early for appointments, or late picking up, it is important to email your child’s teacher and Ms. Jodi our secretary (jward@sd62.bc.ca) to let them know directly. Also, if you plan to pick up your child early, please email the same people to let them know.
  • Please remember to keep your children home if they are not feeling well.  We have had to send several students home who have come to school sick.  We are trying to keep everyone safe.  Please follow these guidelines as COVID is still happening.

Please remind your child not to bring toys (including Pokemon cards) or other sports equipment from home to school unless it is requested by the classroom teacher.  Electronics should also stay at home as well.  Thank you for your continued help with this policy.
