Keep in mind that you DO NOT have to be a Facebook User to see these updates (you just won't be able to comment on them). You may see a bar at the bottom of your page saying "please sign in or sign up" but you can safely ignore this.
An alternative, if you are a parent, make sure to get on their newsletter email list! If you haven't received the past few newsletters via email, then contact the school to make sure they have your email address correct.
Additionally, some teachers as well as the school Principal, Mr. Hawkins-Bogle use the app REMIND to send out class or grade specific information and reminders. Here is the info they sent out in their August 31st newsletter about how to sign up for these notifications. Pick the grade that your student is in, and although all messages may not be of interest, it will keep you surely "In The Know" about what's going on at school. This is the system that also announces 'No Bus' days (or Snow Days), if you're not able to confirm with the school district website.
To get their manually, go to www.sd28.bc.ca, then scroll to the bottom of the page where you see a picture of a bus. Click on this bus!
Additionally, click on the following link to read the school board's policies and procedures regarding cancelling bus operations for the day, read "COLD WEATHER/UNSAFE ROAD CONDITIONS: SCHOOL AND BUS OPERATIONS - COLD WEATHER NOTICE"
Regardless of whether your student takes the bus, walks, gets a ride, or drives themselves to school, the district encourages parents to "carefully weigh the hazards" before determining whether they should attend school that day.
