New Safe Arrival phone number

604 713 5159 school code: 86#

Effective Monday, 2 March we will have a new Safe Arrival phone number to align with the VSB wide Safe Arrival program. The district safe arrival number is 604 713 5159. Our school code is 86#. Once you have entered the code, you will be able to leave a message about your son/daughter’s absence.

Thank you,

Last call for (some) yearbook photos

Take a trip down memory lane this week and find some photos for us. The yearbook deadline is approaching and we need to finish some pages.  Can you please take a moment to scroll through your camera roll and submit photos

We’re closing submissions for Halloween, Christmas and Lunar New Year, so get those shots in! As a friendly reminder, photos need to be taken at school (or on a field trip) and we love images of more than one student (bonus if they’re in the same division)

Click here to submit photos.  Deadline for these particular images is this Wednesday (4 March). Thank you!

VSB is seeking input 

There is a very informative newsletter sent by the District PAC (DPAC) and we thought we'd copy in some of the contents here as there are several opportunities for parents to provide feedback. The most recent email is here and we're sure you'll find some interesting information there. You can sign up to receive your own newsletter here.

Building for Modern Learning.

This engagement is part of the Long Range Facility Planning year-long engagement process the Board voted for last May. Survey link and DPAC thoughts here. Survey is open from  February 19 to March 11. Please add comments if you don't feel the options fully represent your opinion.

Vancouver Plan initial survey

The City of Vancouver has reached out to DPAC and really wants (needs) to hear from more families, youth and school communities. So please spend 5 minutes sharing what matters to you by completing the Vancouver Plan initial survey that will close March 6.
