Welcome to a new school year at Kerrisdale. We hope everyone had a fun and restful
summer and are ready for an exciting year.
As the new principal, I am truly excited to be joining the Kerrisdale
community, working with all, of our staff, students and parents.
Our first week back is a busy week, we have scheduled
Thursday for students to move into their new classes, as long as our student
numbers and staffing levels have remained stable. To help us ensure this transition happens on
Thursday, we ask you if you know a family has moved away from the Kerrisdale
catchment over the summer, please let the office know. Also, if your child will
be away, please phone the school to report the absence as soon as
possible. Parents should leave a message
on our dedicated answering service by calling 604 713 5159 please indicate the
school by #41. This will also allow us
to confirm our student numbers faster.
We would really like students in their new classes by Thursday.
Wednesday, September 5, will be our first full day at
school. Students will to return to their
last year’s classrooms, or classrooms assigned the first day. School begins at
9:00am and ends at 3:00pm. Please
remember to send students with a nutritional snack and lunch. Lunch is from 12:10-12:57. Students going
home for lunch need to provide the office with a note indicating that they will
be going home for lunch daily. Parents
need to sign students out of the office when taking their child home for lunch.
Morning supervision begins at 8:40am. Afternoon supervision ends at 3:20pm, please
make sure that you have made arrangements with your child(ren) about when they
will be arriving at school and when and where they will be picked up.
Please observe the driving and parking regulations around
our school. If you feel you need to walk
your child to class, please park a block or two away and walk in. Thirty-Ninth Avenue is for drop off and pick
up only, please do not leave your car.
Please observe the speed limits zones.
U-turns and backing up are prohibited in a school zone.
Teachers will be reviewing our school Code of Conduct with
our students throughout the week. Please
review the attached Code with your child as well.
A big thank you to the PAC for providing a Welcome Back
coffee in the gym, today.
Again, I look forward to meeting and working with you.
