Outside supervision by staff begins at 8:45 in the morning and ends fifteen minutes after the 3:00 p.m. bell. Please do not leave your children in the playground unsupervised before 8:45 a.m. and after 3:15 p.m. There is a bell at 3:15 that reminds students that they need to come to the office if they haven’t been picked up.
Please make sure that you call the school at (604) 713-5159 ext 31 if your child is going to be absent. Parents must sign their child in/out at the office if their child arrives late or has to leave early.
Riding bikes and scooters on school grounds before and after school (while pedestrians are on the grounds) is NOT permitted for safety reasons since there are so many children and adults on the school grounds at those times. We appreciate parents reinforcing this rule with their children as well as the fact that the City Of Vancouver by-laws require all bike riders to wear a helmet.
We promote healthy nutrition in the school and encourage students to bring healthy, nutritious snacks and lunches. As we have a number of students with serious food allergies, we ask parents to avoid preparing lunches and snacks that contain nut and seed products.
Mobile devices: many students bring personal mobile devices (ie cell phones, smartphones, iPods, etc) to school. The expectation is that the student uses the device responsibly and only at the times allowed. These devices should not be used at recess and lunchtime or for taking photos. Students should not be texting or using social media during the school day. If a student is not using their device correctly, they will be asked to turn it off and hand it to a staff member to collect at the end of the day.
