Home / School News / Ecole Poirier Elementary Newsletter for January 25th


January 25, 2019

Dear Panther Families,


All Visitors Are to Report to The Main Office

All visitors, including parents, must report to the main office upon entering the school. We ask that parents do not go straight to their child’s classroom. If you are dropping something off for your child, please leave it at the office, and we will make sure he/she gets it. If you are coming to pick up your child before 245 p.m., please report to the office, and we will call your child down. If you are coming at the end of the day, please wait for your child at their outside classroom door.


Your feedback is wanted: Draft SD62 calendars for 2019-2022

The school district has posted draft calendars for the next three years. Please provide any feedback you might have to info@sd62.bc.ca. Feedback will be open until Friday, February 22, 2019. The SD62 Board of Education must submit a Board-approved calendar to the government by the end of March.
