In case you missed it on the CBC and the Burnaby Now…one of our school parents has published a new book on stuttering. Please take a moment to check it out at the following link: Stuttering Adventures
Also, here is a link to the original article in the Burnaby Now: “Burnaby Author Starts Conversation on Stuttering”
Here’s the link to the interview on the CBC Evening News: “Burnaby author gives children who stutter relatable superhero”
So proud of our community!!
We are expecting snowfall over the next week or so want to remind parents/guardians, students, and staff about Burnaby School District weather related school closure announcements.
All schools will remain OPEN, unless there is heavy snowfall, damage or other circumstances (eg. power outage) that make it impossible to operate safely. The district will do its best to communicate school or district-wide closures or cancellations by 6:30 am.
To find out about possible closures – you can:
- Visit the the front page of the district website at http://www.sd41.bc.ca/ or follow us on Twitter @burnabyschools. However, please keep in mind that there may be situations where this is not always possible, for example, power outages or technical problems may arise, or
- Listen to local radio stations (this is your best option).
- CBC AM 690
- CBC Radio One FM 88.1
- CKWX AM 1130 – NEWS 1130 AM
- CKNW AM 980
- Fairchild AM 1470
- Fairchild FM 96.1
Please do not call the school or the radio stations directly to find out about closures.
Parents/guardians are responsible for their child’s safe travel to school. Please walk elementary children to the door of their school if you are uncertain whether the school is open or not. If for any reason you feel that your child cannot travel safely to school then you should call the Forest Grove absentee line at 604-296-9026, press 1 and leave a message indicating that your child will be absent. A phone call to the absence voicemail is also necessary if your child will be more than fifteen minutes late.
Student safety is a shared responsibility. With your cooperation and support related to winter weather procedures, we can achieve safe conditions for all.
