quoteWhat a week!  For those who love the snow then weren’t you lucky to get another day of snow covering the ground!

Mid Day School Closure:  As new situations arise, like snow days that we are not used to on our beautiful West Coast, we are trying to find the best ways possible to deal with school closures.  If weather conditions create a concern for safety, the District will decide how to proceed in this situation. While every effort will be made to keep schools open, parents are encouraged to establish a plan for their children in the event of early dismissal or school closure. Mid day closure announcements will be made via email from the District.  If your child phones to say school is closed please check the SD 62 website for confirmation before coming to pick up your child.

École John Stubbs Spirit Wear is available to order.  Sample sizes are at the office to take a look at.  Orders are due by Thursday, March 16th as orders will be placed the next day.  Below please find order form.

* Just a reminder that the staff parking lot is for staff only.  It should not be used as a student drop off/pick up unless for a medical emergency.  There are designated drop off/pick up areas on Zealous Crescent, and in front of the bus loop.  Thank you for your cooperation.

*There have been a few kids wearing Wheelies on school property and in the school.  Please do not allow your student to wear these shoes to school as they are not appropriate for school activities.

*Read-a-thon fundraising was such a success!  The students raised over $1100!! Wow et bravo!!

 
 

SD62 schools will be closed today, Tuesday, February 7th, 2017.   Although the snow has abated, overnight snow and the ice on the road, make the running of buses potentially dangerous. Sidewalks are not cleared to the point where students may have to walk on the road.
