Summer is a great time for adults to upgrade a high school course or for school aged grade 9-12 students to complete a graduation requirement early. Many students choose to take their PE 10 course online during the summer before their grade 10 school year using the physical activities they enjoy during the summer as the physical activity portion of the course. Others choose an academic course to complete without the distractions that come with the regular school year. You can register for your summer course online today via the registration page of our website or contact our office (westshore@sd62.bc.ca or 250-391-9002) for additional information.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As we head into spring break, we continue to monitor the effects of the COVID-19 virus and its impact on our schools. Attached is a message from the Deputy Minister of Education regarding the current outbreak. At this time, there are no plans to close schools beyond the already scheduled break. Any decision to close will come from the Ministry of Education and Public Health Officials.

We continue to remind families:

  •   if a student is sick, please keep them home.
  •   practice proper health hygiene by washing hands frequently, coughing/sneezing into the elbow and notsharing water bottles, etc.
  •   to be aware of social distancing and avoiding larger gatherings of over 250 people.Should circumstances change over the next two weeks, we will communicate with families regarding those changes and any impacts related to our schools.

    Sincerely,

    Scott Stinson
    Superintendent of Schools
