The health check has recently been updated by the health authorities and we have reflected this in the new questions that are asked in it. We will now be asking parents to complete the health check with your child(ren) each morning prior to dropping off at school. The heath check has been translated into other languages for use by parents and can be found at: https://burnabyschools.ca/blog/daily-health-check-for-students/
Our teachers will ask each student if your parent has completed the check with them in the morning. We appreciate your assistance with this.
Student Intake meetings will give you the first opportunity to meet with your child’s new classroom teacher. We will be using the software from School Appointments to schedule these meetings. If you have used this software to schedule meetings before you will need to create a new user ID and password as the software has reset and all previous usernames and passwords have been cleared. If you are new to this, you can first register and schedule a meeting. Please go to https://capitolhill.schoolappointments.com to access the schedule for the Student Intake Meetings.
The student Intake meetings will all be virtual this year (using Zoom) to follow the protocols as set out for schools by the Provincial Health Officer. Our teachers will be conducting the meetings using the Zoom software and will be sending you the Zoom Link for their meeting after you have book your meeting with them using the SchoolAppointments scheduling software.
Please see the link below for instructions on how to register and book appointments;
