    Connections & Sign In/Out
    by Office Steno - Wednesday, 13 September 2017, 9:59 AM
     
    Connections Block:
    Effective next Wednesday, Sept 20th and every Wednesday afterwards, we will be dismissing students at 2:10pm for our weekly Connections block.  Between 2:10 and 3:00 students will be able to access extra support in their academic classes.

    Sign In / Out Procedures:
    Please note: All students, grade 8 to 12, must either possess an appointment note, parent note or have a parent/guardian call the school before we can allow your son/daughter to sign out.  (Please call the school at 250-374-1405 or leave a message on our school voicemail to report an absence outside office hours)  Our goal is to ensure that each student has your permission to leave campus and that you are aware of their absences from school.  Your support with this request is greatly appreciated.

    Voluntary Accident Insurance
    by Office Steno - Wednesday, 6 September 2017, 2:20 PM
     

    Kids Plus™ Accident Insurance

    For your convenience, we’ve made arrangements for families to voluntarily purchase student accident insurance through the Kids Plus™ Accident Insurance program, underwritten by Industrial Alliance Insurance and Financial Services Inc (iA Financial Group).

    Kids Plus™ Accident Insurance offers protection against the unexpected costs of injury from accidents, and is especially valuable for families who:

    • do not have medical or dental plans,
    • have limited plans, as it may help supplement health and dental benefits, or
    • have active children who enjoy sports and outdoor activities.

    For complete plan details, please visit kidsplus.ca.

    Course Changes 2017/2018
    by Office Steno - Wednesday, 30 August 2017, 10:12 AM
     

    Since all course changes were completed in the spring, Counsellors will only be making appointments for the following considerations:
    1. Courses needed to graduate.
    2. Incomplete (missing blocks) timetable.
    3. Changes necessary for medical reasons.
    Students who were wait-listed for classes in the spring will be contacted individually if spaces become available.
