Dear Parents and Guardians,

I would like to welcome the school community to the 2018-2019 School Year!   We are looking forward to working with all of you this year on behalf of Coast Mountains learners, and continue to make progress towards our district goals.

Shared Vision …“Coast Mountains School District: creating opportunities for learning, opportunities for life.”

District Goals … Raise literacy and numeracy levels for all of our learners.  Graduation for every learner; crossing the stage with dignity, purpose and options.  Enhance learner engagement, opportunities and choice through personalized learning.

I look forward to continue leading the way to turn these goals into reality, and I hope you will all join the Board of Education, School District 82 staff and myself in this quest for successful learning.

School Opening … the first day of school will be Wednesday, September 5.  We have well established routines and we will follow our normal opening day routines with a shortened first day.  Buses will make their morning runs at the usual time on September 5 with their return runs after students have been in attendance for approximately two hours.  Mount Elizabeth Middle/Secondary School students please reference below for September 5 start times.  As you will know, these first days allow us to greet students, set preliminary enrolment and then prepare in earnest for the coming school days.  Our first full day of school will be Thursday, September 6 with regular school hours and bus runs in effect.  Bus routes and school start times are provided below.

If you require information on which school your child should attend, please call (250) 638-4401 or 1-855-635-4931, Local 4401.

We look forward to welcoming your children in our schools on September 5.

Sincerely,

Katherine McIntosh
Superintendent of Schools
