    First Day of School

    ​Depending on the Ministry of Education and The Provincial Health Officers decisions over summer, this is scheduled to be the first day back to school.  Please check emails closer to  September for updated info.

    The First Day of School is very short.  Please prepare for only an hour or less.  It is basically a day for the school to take a head count and see if we have any new students arrive to register or find out if anyone has moved to another school over summer break.

    Please send the office an email if you are attending for the 2020 - 2021 School Year but not attending the first day please.  The first week of school it is crucial we know who to expect and not expect for confirming class building.  Thank you for your cooperation
