Weekly Update September 26th

September 26, 2014

PHOTO DAY September 29th.  Mountain West Photography will be here to take photos of all students and staff.  Photos are needed for student ID cards.   Retakes are scheduled for October 28th.


Schedule changes:  Any students wishing schedule changes must see the counselling department after school on Monday, September 29th.  Please be aware that due to our high enrollment, there is limited opportunity for schedule changes.  Administration has made numerous changes for students requiring changes for educational reasons.  Counsellors will see students 3:30 – 5:00 pm.


Bus Passes:   Students have had opportunity each lunch hour to pick up their bus passes from the Multi-Purpose Area, but we still have many who have not done so.  Bus passes that were ordered over the summer are expected to arrive within the next few days.   Announcements regarding bus passes will be posted to the scrolling bulletin board.


Parents, please encourage your child to check the scrolling bulletin board for announcements regarding sports and other extra-curricular activities.  Practices, signups, rehearsals, etc. will be posted on the announcement board.  It is the responsibility of students to check regularly.


Accident Insurance:  Kids Plus Accident Insurance is available for purchase for all of our families.  Paper copies of the application are available for pickup at the office or the insurance can be purchased online at    We have also posted a pdf copy of the information we have available on our website under “Publications” and attached a copy to this e-mail.


Fee Payments:  We are strongly encouraging our parents to utilize the On-line payment feature for school fees, purchasing items and sports fees.  Please do not send cash for any fees or purchases.
