The NLESD School District recently created a new bussing portal for parents to help simplify student transportation. Students will be bringing information home today regarding this new process, along with an individualized letter in paper copy that contains sign-in information for the portal.
The portal will contain information on the eligibility of the child for bussing as well as the procedure for when they move or change schools. Even non-bussed or non-eligible students will receive this information because the District is planning on moving our Public Inquiry Form and the Courtesy Seating Process over to this Parent Portal.
The Grade 9 field trip to FrontLine Action will happen the week of June 14 – 18th. Each Grade 9 class has a separate time slot to maintain Covid restrictions. Students will also have to fill out an on-line waiver in order to participate.
MDJH recognizes the impact the Residential School system has had on Indigenous people throughout Canada. We wish to respect and honour the 215 children, families and communities that are deeply affected by this most recent tragedy in BC. On Thursday, June 3, we encourage all students, staff and our school community at MDJH to wear orange as a symbol of respect and to honour the 215 Indigenous children found at the former residential school in Kamloops and all residential school survivors.
Orange symbolizes recognition of the harm the residential school system did to children’s sense of self-esteem and well-being, and as an affirmation of our commitment to ensure that everyone around us matters.
On that day, we will also have a moment of silence at 12:15 pm, to honour the 215 children and to make a commitment to further our learning about Residential Schools.
