Important Information for Kindergarten Parents
by Don Poelzer - Sunday, 31 August 2014, 02:17 PM

As you already know, Kindergarten students in School District 73 follow a “graduated entry” to school.  In early August, a letter was sent to you outlining  the schedule for your child, including your initial parent-meeting date and time with your child’s Kindergarten teacher, as well as the schedule of “graduated entry days” your child should attend school.  At this point, we now know that school will not open as scheduled on September 2nd due to the current BCTF strike. Once we have clarification of the starting date for our school, we will contact you with a revised schedule for meeting with the Kindergarten teachers and the graduated entry for Kindergarten students. It is likely that times that have been scheduled will not change, just the dates on which the meetings and graduated entry times were originally scheduled.

Please continue to listen to news reports and monitor the school and district websites for further information.  The school district website is simply

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or Ms. Halland, our Vice-Principal on Tuesday at the school - 250 374-2305

I look forward to meeting you and your child once school commences.  Thank you for your attention to this message, and have a good evening and long weekend.
