Welcome to Kindergarten

Hello 2020-2021 Kindergarten Families!

Download the attached letter for information regarding Welcome to Kindergarten (virtual) activities designed to help you and your child prepare for the exciting school year ahead.

We are still accepting registrations for September. See below for information from School District 60.

We have created an Online Registration form for parents to register ***new*** students to our district. Parents will need to enter Birth Certificate information and proof of residence information in the form so please have that ready before you start. At a later date parents will need to present the Birth Certificate and proof of residence information to their school. Parents can schedule an appointment with their school to do this in person or mail photocopies to the school. Click on the link below or scan the QR code to begin registration.

BC’s Re-Start Plan Stage 3 – Partial Return to School

Hello RO Families

As you know, our school will be offering a voluntary, partial in person schedule starting the week of June 1st. Students will be participating in smaller classes for two, back-to-back days. Classes will be at most half size and there will be health and safety protocols in place. In the next few days, RO staff will be contacting families to ask if you would like your child(ren) to come back to school and whether they will need their seat on their usual bus to attend. Where possible we ask families to drive their students to the school instead of using the bus. You will be notified of the days and schedule for attending once we have numbers finalized and plans in place.

For families that choose not to send children to school, remote learning support will be provided. The level of support and scheduled online events for remote learning will change from what was provided in April and May. In order to have adequate time to prepare for this next stage, the schedule for in-school support of vulnerable students as well as level of support for home learning next week, May 25 – May 29, will also be altered. Further information will be provided as soon as possible.

Thank-you for your continued patience!

Thankful Thursday

A Royal Parade

Hello RO families. It was wonderful (and emotional) for all of us to see so many of you out today during the Royals Parade. It reminds us of how special our students and families are and how much we miss you. if you have any pictures or videos of the parade including ones of your children and their signs please send them to kgonzales@prn.bc.ca. We were so busy waving ,smiling (shedding a few tears) and calling out to say hello that we didn’t get many pictures. A special shout out to our SD60 bus driver Melissa who was such a good sport and navigated us expertly and safely. Yes, we have so much to be thankful for this Thursday!

Terrific Tuesday – RO Rocks!

This week we encourage families to continue looking for the beautifully painted rocks hidden around our community. We ask that rocks found on our school grounds be left for others to find and enjoy. Thank you to all the students and staff who participated in this Earth Day Challenge and helped to spread messages of kindness and hope. RO does rock!
