Week at a Glance Feb 22-26, 2021

A very short, but productive week at Cultus Lake Community School has come to an end. We are starting to have many students arriving late for school. Please do your best to have students at school for 7:52. If they arrive after 8:00, please have them go through the front doors and check in with Mrs. Betts. We have had a number of students marked away, as they have arrived late but did not check-in. Also, please remember to wait until they have entered the building before leaving.  Tomorrow is a district-wide Professional Development day, so schools will be closed to students.


Daily Screening

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.


PAC Meeting

Our March PAC meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 2nd at 6pm on Zoom. Please go to the following link to attend: https://sd33-ca.zoom.us/j/69202010622?pwd=VEd0bjdnd3dTNFoxMTNZVFBCcU45QT09

Please let us know if you have any questions and we hope to see you at the meeting. If you would prefer to call in rather than use the app, please contact me so I can provide you with the needed information.


PAC Fundraising Ideas on Facebook Page

Our PAC is looking for fundraising ideas. Please follow our PAC Facebook page for some of the upcoming events and fundraising opportunities. You can search on Facebook or go to https://www.facebook.com/cultuslakePAC


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.


Super Reader

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!


Students Away

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.


Outdoor Play

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.


Strong Start

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.
