IMPORTANT: TERM 3 & FINAL REPORT CARDS TO BE ISSUED ONLINE

Term 3 Report Cards will be issued ONLINE on June 29th.  Parents/Guardians can access Term 3 and Final Report Cards by logging into the Student/Family Portal​.  Please ask your child to provide you login information to view their Report Card.​

 

  • ​The primary focus of the Student Family portal is to make accessible attendance data and formal end term reporting information to students and parents/guardians.
  • Detailed course assessment may be available through the portal, but using the portal is just one of many options available to teachers to communicate student learning.
  • A paper hardcopy of student's report cards will be made available upon request to the school.
  • The accounts will be initially set up such that email communication generated from MyEd will be sent to the Office 365 email account.  A school would not manage a change of email address by the student/parent/guardian except to reset this back to the Office 365 email account.
    • The 'I forgot my password' process will send a new password to the Primary email address. Users should ensure that they know how to access this email account be it the Office 365 account or another email account that they changed to during the 'First Time Logging In' process.

The Windermere students created a petition and obtained 800+ signatures against such actions. MP davies presented the petition to the parliament on March 22nd which coincided with World Water Day.

13 Seasons Why Netflix Series - Guidance for Parents/Guardians/Caregivers

  13 Reasons Why Netflix Series

 
Guidance for Parents/ Guardians/ Caregivers:
 
In light of the popularity of the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why and its depiction of suicide, bullying, drunk driving we want to bring to your attention the following information.
 
The B.C. Ministry of Education and many mental health organizations are highlighting concerns and providing guidance to school communities and parents to be aware of the dangers and risks associated with children and young people who have been exposed to the series.
 
It is important for parents to know what children are watching and if necessary, engage them in reflective conversations to make sense of what they are seeing on TV or social media. The following article was created by the Suicide Awareness Voices for Education Society (SAVE), www.save.org/blog/tips-watching-new-netflix-series-13- reasons/ as a guideline for talking to children about the TV series. It explains much of the shows content, and the reasons why some mental health associations are urging caution in allowing children/teens to watch the show unsupported.
 
School counsellors can assist school staff and parents to engage in supportive conversations with students as well as provide resources and offer expertise in preventing harmful behaviors.
