A message from our Principal:

Staff at Royal Oak are working hard to keep our students focused and engaged during class time. Consequently, we are trying to minimize disruptions while the students are in session.

You can help us by:

1. Asking your son/daughter to remember appointment times/ early pick ups, rather than having office staff to buzz into the class during instructional time.

2. Calling the absence line at 250-479-0999 or emailing romssafearrival@sd63.bc.ca to report planned absences or early pick ups.

We understand that sometimes life is unpredictable and are happy to pass along urgent or necessary messages during recess and lunch activity. However, if we can keep these messages to a minimum, it supports our focus on student learning and growth.

Thank you for continuing to partner with us for all of the students' education.


Carly Hunter, Principal

Winter Band Concert: Thursday, December 7th @ 7:00 pm Mark your calendars.
