Kardash at dkardash@sd63.bc.ca.

We encourage drop off and pick up of students on Greenlea – It is safer for the students and less congested in the parking lot.

Parents picking up students – We ask that you do not wait outside classrooms. Please wait outside front entrance of the school or inside the main lobby if the weather is unfavourable. At middle school we encourage independence. There are over 635 students and the hallways are very congested.

Please, do not park in the bus lane – the buses need to be able to pick up students safely.

Consider the Environment - We encourage your child to walk, bike or ride the bus to school. Parking Lot Congestion – Go Green!!!!!

Please complete information forms package and return them to Homeroom teacher asap.
