The City of Fort St. John and region are excited to host the BC Winter Games February 20-23. School District 60 is a partner group in this substantial community initiative and will be supporting the games through the use of our facilities and volunteers.
On Thursday, February 20th and Friday, February 21st, there will be no regular instruction at any school sites nor will there be any busses transporting students. Students are encouraged to participate and support the games through competition, volunteering and spectating.
Due to unavoidable circumstances, our photographer is unable to make it to Dr. Kearney today. Unfortunately, we will have to postpone student photo day. Once we have a new picture day arranged, we will email you and update our website and social media.
We appologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
The DKMS staff invites all our parents & guardians to our Back To School Open House on Tuesday September 17th, 6:00-7:00 pm. This is a great opportunity to meet your child’s teachers and tour the school!
Our Parents Advisory Council will also hold their first meeting of the new school year at 7:00 pm in the Library. All parents & guardians of DKMS students are invited!
