Remember, it’s often slippery out there, so please be careful; and dress warmly, Happy New Year everyone!
During the month of February, all Burnaby Schools will be accepting registrations for the 2018-19 school year. Registration are NOT based on a “first come, first served” basis, so it does not matter if you register Feb. 1st or Feb. 28th (although it’s always a good idea to register early in case you forget any necessary forms). Please visit the district Registration Page for forms and information regarding the registration process. Once forms and documents are filled out and ready, please bring everything to our front office and Ms. Thomson, our office secretary, will help you complete the registration process.
Brantford registration times are:
- 9:15 to 10:15 am
- 11:00 to 11:45 am
- 1:15 to 2:45 pm
No appointment necessary
Weather Related School Closures
The latest white fluff in the air last week is reminding us that winter is on its way! That means it is time to remind you of how you might learn of any weather related school closures.
All schools will remain OPEN, unless there is heavy snowfall, damage or other circumstances (e.g. power outage) that make it impossible to operate safely. In the event there are certain schools or the entire district closed due to snow, or any other weather-related issues, announcements will be made on local radio stations by 7 a.m. on the day of the closure. Please do not call the radio station – tune in and listen for the announcements, or check the radio station websites.
Closure information will also be posted on the district website at www.burnabyschools.ca and on Twitter @burnabyschools (please follow us!). However, keep in mind that there may be situations where this is not possible, for example, if there are power outages or technical problems. The most reliable way to get school closure information is to listen to the local radio stations.
Information will only be provided on school closures. If there is no closure information, our schools are open for learning! However, the decision to send your child to school or not is ultimately a family decision.

Now it’s time to get back to doing my Sun Dance.
As we enter our second school year of having full implementation of the new curriculum, teachers will be using Monday, Oct. 23rd as a day to further explore the curricular changes and collaborate with fellow staff. This day is slightly different than a “regular” Pro-D Day in the fact that it is solely devoted to working with the new curriculum, whereas a Pro-D Day is devoted to delving into any area a teacher might be passionate about or want to further develop skills, strategies, and understanding.
