Online Learning/Scholarship/Course Selection/Mental Wellness Update

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I hope this message finds you and your family healthy and safe.

The purpose of this email is to provide parents with updated information regarding school operations in this time of online learning.  I have tried to keep this message as brief as possible as I know and appreciate that you are receiving numerous emails from our school.  Here are some key points:

STUDENT/TEACHER EMAIL COMMUNICATION

  • All Grade 8-12 students in our district have been provided with a School District 48 Gmail account. This email account allows teachers to email students directly from their Google Classroom platform facilitating streamlined communication between students and teachers.  Student G-mail accounts are limited to sending/receiving from within the School District 48 domain.
  • Please click here for a district document outlining the logistical and legal requirements for student G-Mail use.

2020-21 COURSE SELECTIONS

  • If your child has not already completed their course requests for next year, it is very important that they log onto the student portal of MyEdBC and complete their course requests for 2020-21.  Information regarding course offerings can be found here.  Students experiencing any difficulties logging into MyEdBC can contact Mr. Blaikie at ablaikie@sd48.bc.ca.
  • If students have any  general or specific questions about courses, they can contact our school counsellors:

LOCAL SCHOLARSHIPS

  • Local scholarships for our Grade 12 students will still be awarded. Our scholarship committee will be meeting in the coming weeks to select recipients.  Recipients and their parents will be notified once all selections are final.

MENTAL WELLNESS

Please contact me via email or by phone at 604 892-5261 ext. 105 if you have any questions or concerns regarding the information outlined above.

Regards,

Nick Pascuzzi
Principal
