A few reminders:
- Student Comfort Kits are due – these little bags of ‘home and support’ could make the difference for your child in an emergency. If you don’t recall the list of items you can pick up a list at the office.
- Please send your child dressed for the weather – our students are outside a lot and a pair of boots, a raincoat and a set of extra clothes (for the littler ones) in case of an accident are really helpful.
- Speaking of clothes – please check out our Lost and Found which is overflowing with items of clothing that have been left behind.

Hallowe’en can be a fun, safe time at school for everyone provided that we adhere to our core values and code of conduct.
With respect to Hallowe’en costumes, we ask that all accessories such as swords, wands, or brooms remain at home. Objects meant to simulate the appearance of a weapon, or other illegal objects, whether handmade or otherwise are prohibited. If a full facemask is a costume or part thereof, then the wearer must raise the mask above their head upon arrival at school in order to be identified.
We believe that student conduct shall meet the needs of individuals in a way that works for them, for the school and promotes a climate of respect as defined by the B.C. Human Rights Code. Therefore, costumes must not display any statement, sign, symbol, emblem or other representation that shows intolerance, indicates discrimination, or an intention to discriminate on the basis of an individual’s or a group’s race, colour, ancestry, place of origin, religion, family status, sex, or sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, gender identity or expression, dress, or other perceived differences.
Finally, one reminder from WildSafe BC, please bring carved pumpkins indoors at night and minimize the number of hours that these animal attractants are available as snacks for our furry neighbors.
For those of you who participate in Hallowe’en, thank you in advance for your consideration.
