INFORMATION UPDATE FROM MPES – APRIL 26, 2020
Our distance education programs with Choice Boards have now been established for each classroom. Teachers are making regular phone calls and have set ZOOM meetings each week.
NOTE: The Ministry has mandated that report cards must be completed in June (final version is To Be Determined). We want to work with families to provide the necessary support to promote student growth and evidence of learning as needed. We understand how busy families are during these challenging times but we do have requirements to meet.
https://www.openschool.bc.ca/keeplearning/ offers additional learning/exploration activities.
** Unfortunately, we are having difficulty connecting with a number of families & students.
Please check your emails, including the Junk Box, and your Phone Voice Messages.
You can email your child’s teacher or contact our school phone to leave a message at
You can also contact our Admin. Ass’t: Rachel Bowering at email@example.com or myself at firstname.lastname@example.org . Essential SD 46 and Covid 19 info. can be accessed at www.sd46.bc.ca
