News & Announcements

Welcome Back!

Our schools are excited to welcome everyone back after what we hope has been a wonderful Spring Break! We also know that some of you are concerned about the recent increase in COVID-19 cases in our province, and in our region especially. We want to assure you that we have been in contact with Vancouver Coastal Health, and they assure us that the safest place for students and staff to be is in the controlled environment of our schools. Thank you for your continued support of our district and school safety plans!
