On March 9 at 7pm there is a parent presentation titled TECH, COVID and KIDS, by Dr. Shimi Kang. More information is coming soon. This is a shared initiative with 8 VSB elementary PACs.
On March 10 the 3 schools on site, Maple Grove, Cavell, and Magee will be combining for a joint LOCKDOWN Drill with the Vancouver Police Department. This has been done in the past with Maple Grove and Magee, but of course this year we are in a new building and will be adding Cavell. We will have a considerable VPD presence on our shared campus during the drill. The VPD will then be entering each school as part of the drill ensuring that classrooms/teaching areas are safe and secure. There will be a joint VPD/VSB Admin debrief following the drill.
Many Option 4 students are returning to school Monday March 1 at 9:15am. Administration will briefly meet with the parents and students outside, undercover at the North entrance on 45th avenue. Administration will then take the students inside for further COVID protocols, give a short tour, and deliver the students to their new classroom. ANY Option 4 student who has not yet decided to return to in-school instruction, has the opportunity to return on any Monday after March 1, provided the family informs our school office staff by the previous Thursday.
