Beginning Monday, December 1st and continuing every second (2nd) Monday thereafter, the student’s school day will begin at 9:39 AM (Welcoming Bell) and end at 2:53 PM. On these alternating Mondays, from 8:33 AM – 9:33 AM, our teaching and support staffs will be collaborating professionally on the implementation of innovative learning initiatives through such methods as formal inquiry and action research. Research strongly supports that such opportunities to regularly collaborate, result in improved student achievement and a more positive learning experience for all involved.

Next SHSS PAC Meeting Tuesday November 18th @ 7PM: SHSS PAC Agenda
Come and meet your new SHSS PAC executive!
The School Act gives parents the right, through PACs, to assume an advisory role in every school. PAC is the officially recognized collective voice of parents of their school. A PAC, through its elected officers, may advise the school board, the principal and staff of the school respecting any matter relating to the school other than matters assigned to the School Planning Council (SPC).
PACs are forums within each school community to discuss matters affecting your school and the education of your children. Parents’ voices are a tremendous value to their school. They offer a wealth of ideas and support in the challenges that face all public schools. PACs strive to represent the diversity within their communities and contribute to the benefit of all students by:
- providing opportunities to educate and inform parents about the school;
- involving parents in volunteer activities; and
- openly discussing parents’ concerns and aspirations for their schools.
SHSS families with hotmail accounts MAY NOT be correctly receiving email messages and/or attachments from the school. Recently, Hotmail has significantly changed their filtering settings. Hotmail users can add our address or even the entire sd20.bc.ca domain to their “Safe Senders” list in Hotmail, but this has to be done by each individual user. (Hotmail, Live mail, and Outlook.com are all the same system, so it will affect any addresses using those services). Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do at the school or district level as we don’t administer Hotmail.
