The Vancouver School Board is pleased to announce VSB2021, a highly collaborative process to develop a new Strategic Plan for the school district. This project focuses on the District’s core goals of teaching and learning to support student achievement and well-being. The updated plan will provide a clear framework for action over the next 5 years, and they need your input to get it right! Please read.

Please be mindful of the parking and traffic regulations around the school. Parking is limited at Lord Nelson. There is a small parking lot west of the grass field which can be accessed from Charles Street. We encourage NOT parking in front of residential homes. Although the speed bumps and traffic calming closures have helped reduce the speed of many drivers, we are still concerned about the safety of our students.  Please be mindful of the traffic rules and regulations around the school when you pick up and drop off your children.  Please be respectful of the rules when you stop and/or park, such as not blocking safety lanes, parking in NO PARKING zones beside the school field, thereby blocking traffic from passing.  Also, please ensure that you drop off and pick up students on the right side of the road for their safety.  The City By-law Traffic Attendants will be enforcing the rules more vigilantly over the next few months, as they often do during school opening.  Please follow these guidelines for dropping off and picking up students at Nelson school.
