Student Placements
by Mike Bowden - Friday, 29 August 2014, 02:21 PM
Please be aware that the deadline for parent requests was June 13, 2014 in writing. September requests may not be considered. Also, under the School Placement Guidelines (see attached), parent requests for specific teachers (or requests not to have specific teachers) will not be considered. All of our teachers are qualified BC teachers. There may be exceptions for extenuating circumstances only. If you are thinking about making a request, please make sure you read our guidelines before doing so.

Students will be placed into regular classes on the second week of school (barring delays with the current labour dispute). Prior to that, students will be organized into family groups (Den Groups) and will be receiving instruction from their family group teachers.
