Dear Parents, 

I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge we are at the end of term two with reports going home for the non-CSL divisions and conferences happening for everyone. I want to thank staff, students and parents for all their hard work and support in pursuit of ensuring a positive educational experience for our students this term and always. 

I would also like to acknowledge the PAC Executive for all their on-going hard work with respect to communtiy building as well as fundraising. Movie nights, Hot lunches, and the variety of fundraising to focus on the new build all go a long way to support or staff and students both now and in the future. Thanks also to the many parent volunteers who help with lunches, special events and field trips. Your committment to our school and to your child's education is most deeply appreciated. 

Please have a close look at the dates below and include in your calendars. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the school at 604-713-4686 

Sincerely, 

Mr. J. Cortens

Principal Begbie Elementary

Measles Update

Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) and the school district encourages everyone to take this current set of measles cases as a reminder to ensure their vaccinations are up-to-date and to report student vaccination records to Vancouver Coastal Health via the school's Public Health Nurse.  

If you have documentation of your child’s vaccination records and wish to get them to VCH, please feel free to drop a copy of them off at the school office and we will provide them to our school’s VCH Public Health Nurse.

If you are wanting to receive vaccinations, you can access such services via:

-One of the VCH Community Health Centres (North, South, Three Bridges, Evergreen, Ravensong, and Pacific Spirit Community Health Centers)

-Certain pharmacies which offer vaccination services

-Certain family/general physicians' offices

If you have questions regarding measles or vaccinations, please call 811 or Vancouver Coastal Health.
