Kent Elementary School – December 19, 2014

There was a small fire at Kent Elementary School tonight, it was well after the children left. Nobody was hurt and we are extremely thankful to our custodians for their quick actions and for the response of our fire department. We will keep everyone updated as we receive information about the restoration of the area affected.

Resources from Cybertip.ca

The Canadian Centre for Child Protection has issued a Cybertip.ca Alert for parents as well as a tip sheet on how parents can talk to youth about online extortion. If your child uses the internet you may want to take a look at the resources that have been offered.

Letter regarding year end Report Cards

June 24, 2014
Dear Parents/Guardians:
Due to the Teacher Strike Action, we are unable to provide you with a formal year-end report card for your child.
The Labor Relations Board has not deemed report cards an essential service for Kindergarten to Grade 9; therefore, the usual year-end reporting has not been completed or finalized.
We hope that parents have an understanding of their child’s progress from previous communications with teachers and report cards issued during the year.
Based on data available to us at this time your child will be promoted to the next grade. Please retain this for your records.
Once an agreement is reached between the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation and the British Columbia Public School Employers’ Association, we are optimistic we may be able to provide you with further information regarding your child’s final term progress.
We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your understanding. Please contact the principal of your child’s school for further information.
Yours truly,
Karen Nelson, EdD Superintendent of Schools
