Well, we finally have arrived at Spring Break. A reminder that the school will be closed until March 29th. I want to thank everyone for their continued support and ensuring we are doing our part to keep our community safe. I would like to also thank our amazing staff at Cultus Lake Community School for the incredible work they have done to support student learning while keeping our school safe and open. I wish everyone a safe and wonderful Spring Break. Looking forward to seeing everyone back at school on March 29th.
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.
Our March PAC meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 6th at 6pm on Zoom. Please go to the following link to attend: https://sd33-ca.zoom.us/j/62676149456?pwd=RUVwdGM1ZTdwcEwzTnRJTVVremMrQT09
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.

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.
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.
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.
