Parent Survey **Important**

Good morning,

On June 1, 2020, we will be moving to Stage 3 of the BC Education Restart Plan. This will mean a partial return to in-school instruction for some students. At the middle school level, this will be up to ONE day per week for most students. You have the option of sending your child(ren) to school. Remote learning will continue but the volume and contact may be reduced.

In order to help us prepare, we have a few important questions. The information collected will assist us in our planning for the part-time return to in-class instruction beginning on Tuesday, June 2, 2020.

We ask that you complete the survey by Tuesday, May 26, 2020.

April 1, 2020 Update

Hello DKMS School Community:

Starting on Monday, April 6th, we will begin the process of gathering items from student lockers. We have had many questions about this over the past few days. Our staff has appreciated your understanding as we have taken the time to create an efficient and most importantly, safe process.

In order to ensure we comply with safe physical distancing and public health requirements, we will use the following process to gather the contents of student lockers and allow parents/guardians to pick up their child’s belongings.

We ask that parents/guardians contact Barb at the school office (250) 785-8378 to book an appointment to pick up personal items from their child’s locker. Appointments will be available between 8:30 am – 2:30 pm on Monday, April 6th to Thursday, April 8th. More days may be added if necessary. Please use the main entrance on 92nd street (flag pole entrance), not the gym entrance as this door will be locked.

Our staff will carefully pack up the contents of each locker and bring the items to you during your scheduled appointment. Students and parents will not have access to their lockers.

We appreciate your patience.

Kind regards,

DKMS Administration

Good morning,

We know these are stressful and uncertain times that we find ourselves in. Please ensure you are checking your email and  for school updates. There will be plenty of information shared over the course of this week and into the future. 

This week, our teachers and support staff are working diligently to prepare for continuity of learning. You should receive an email or possibly a phone call from your child’s teacher in the coming days. We anticipate the resumption of learning to begin on April 6th.  

Students and the public are not permitted in the building until further notice.  A process for students to collect the contents of their lockers will be sent out later this week.  

We know that you will have many questions as we work together in these new and ever changing circumstances. We ask for your patience.
