School Starts Tomorrow!

Hello Marlin families,

Our first days of school last week (Thursday, September 10th and Friday, September 11th) went very well and our students were given a significant amount of information about timetables, bell schedules and Health and Safety regulations.  We want to thank all of our staff and students for their attendance and listening and adhering to the very important rules that were explained to them about entry and exit points, rules for the buses and when to wear masks. 

Starting on Monday, September 14th, we will have all students in school following the timetables emailed home on Friday afternoon. The bell schedules for students are listed below:

We also need parents and students to be performing Mandatory Daily Health Declarations (see attached) and if your child answers “YES” to any of the questions listed in the declaration, they must stay home and see a medical professional.

As a reminder, we will be having a few meetings in the next two weeks for parents with questions about this school year.  Please see below for the dates and times of meetings (Zoom invitations, links and passwords will be sent to all families in coming days).

  • PAC Meeting-Tuesday, September 15th at 7:00 PM

  • Grade 12 Parent Information Meeting-Tuesday. September 22nd at 7:00 PM

We are very happy to be working with our students in-person again, and are excited to get started on Monday morning.  If you have any questions or comments about the upcoming week, please call the school at (604)668-6575.
