A very cold week outside at Cultus Lake Community School has come to an end. We try to send students to play outside as much as possible, so please ensure they are bringing jackets and proper clothing for the weather. This past week, teachers connected with parents if a parent conference was needed. If you have any questions about your child’s progress, please connect with their classroom teacher. Monday is Family Day, so schools will be closed. On Tuesday, classes will be celebrating Valentine’s Day, so students can wear Red, White or Pink. We hope you have a great long weekend with your family.
A new K to 12 Health Check Mobile App has been developed and should be used daily to determine if students should attend school. More information can be found on our district website on the COVID page. You can look at this flow chart to see what happens if we have a person who has been in the school confirmed to have COVID-19.
Many classes will be celebrating Valentine’s Day on Friday, February 16th. Please have students wear Red, Pink or White. To keep it COVID safe we cannot have any home baked or home prepared treats. Store bought prewrapped treats are fine if they want to bring something, but it's not expected. Please touch base with the classroom teacher if you have any questions about the plan in your child’s class.

CSOPA Winter Program
Lisa Braun, Director at Chilliwack School of Performing Art, is running a theatre program, on Thursdays from 2 until 3, for eight weeks, which started this week. This was for students in Grades 3 to 5 and filled up quickly. It will be canceled on February 11th, because of early dismissal and will not run during Spring Break. The last session will be on April 8th.
Inclement Weather Guidelines
Inclement Weather Guidelines for 2020/2021 can be found here.
Inclement weather conditions such as freezing rain, significant snowfall or high wind can occur during the fall and winter months. In such conditions, decisions on the opening or closure of school district facilities are made by the Superintendent of Schools in consultation with management and supervisory staff who have checked first-hand on the driving conditions, walking/sidewalk conditions, and general condition of buildings and accessibility to sites. For more details on how this is done, click here. Please listen to the local radio stations or refer to the school district’s website (www.sd33.bc.ca) for school closures.
Please continue to read with your child every day and fill out the Super Reader form. If you have misplaced your form, please contact your child’s classroom teacher. Thank you to the Kiwanis Club for sponsoring Super Reader!
When your child is staying home from school, please call the school at 604-858-6266 to let us know. This ensures your child is safe and does not require a Safe Arrival phone call from Mrs. Betts.
Winter has arrived and so have cold, rainy days. Please ensure your child has proper outside clothing for the weather, as we will be going outside every day during recess and lunch breaks unless we have extreme weather.
Our StrongStart Site is Open for our Early Learners Ages 0-5!
Please go to https://sd33.bc.ca/strong-start for more detailed information on how to register and sign up for sessions. If you have any questions please contact Anila Gehman, our Strong Start Facilitator.
