Kindergarten Gradual Entry

We’re excited to have our Kindies join us this fall! Parents, by now you should have received a letter from your Kindergarten Teacher explaining the graduated entry schedule. If you have not, or have further questions, please call our office at (250) 832-2167. Kindergarten students do not begin on Sept. 7, but have a schedule that begins on Wednesday, Sept. 8.

It’s almost time for school

SD83 staff are eager to welcome our students and their families back for the 2021-22 school year. While much has changed in our province over the past year, SD83 remains committed to ensuring the safety of our students, staff and school communities by providing safe learning and working environments.

“I am personally very excited to join SD83 as Superintendent. I know that as we enter into a new year of learning, our district remains committed to our mission of engaging all students in meaningful and relevant learning experiences that develop their knowledge, skills, attitudes, creativity and the pursuit of personal success,” comments Superintendent of Schools Donna Kriger.

“Though COVID-19 is still posing challenges for all of us, we remain focussed on the possibilities and opportunities that the 2021-22 school year holds. As we have done throughout the pandemic, our schools will continue to adhere to the Provincial Health Officer’s (PHO) guidance. Our plan will be updated and changed based on regional requirements from Interior Health, the Provincial Health Officer and the Ministry of Education.”

Registration for those brand new to SD83 takes place today (please also ensure you register your child for the school bus if you live in a bus route area at 250-832-9415). The first day of school is Tuesday, September 7. School will be dismissed three hours earlier than usual on this first day.

Here is a brief summary of our return to school plan. The complete plan will be posted on the SD83 website later this week.

Parents/guardians play an essential role in supporting our schools by keeping their children home when sick. Before leaving home, staff, students and visitors should monitor for any symptoms daily using the B.C. Health Check (the health check and app for your smart phone can be found here).

Covid-19 updates

Good afternoon, I know that as the fall season approaches, there are several questions around the restrictions we have heard about in the news, and how it will all apply to schools. At the district level, we are working on the information communicated to develop a plan for the schools, as well as awaiting further information that will be coming to us next week specifically for our area. As soon as we have something to share, it will be posted here on our website. Thanks for your patience.

It’s Almost Time…..

We’re excited to see our amazing South Broadview students return to school! The sun is shining, the air is clear, and we’re almost ready to roll!

The school office opens up on Monday Aug. 30, and new student registration begins Tuesday Aug. 31. Students in K-5 will gather in grade alike groups on Tuesday, Sept. 7 at 8:15. Just look for the appropriate Grade markers on the lawn by the playground. Students will be in these grade alike groups for the first day or two, and specific classroom assignments will be send out via email to parents.

Stay tuned here for information on masking requirements, etc. As we receive info it will be posted on our website.

Enjoy the last two weeks. Can’t wait to see you!
