Coronavirus Update – March 17, 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians:
I am writing to inform you that some of our staff members voluntarily self-isolated themselves today out of an abundance of caution due to concerns they had been in contact with someone who may have been exposed to the COVID 19 virus. Upon a thorough review of details, it has been confirmed that these staff members have not been exposed to the COVID 19 virus. At this time, there are no known cases of the COVID 19 virus in any of our schools in School District No 78 (Fraser-Cascade). Thank you.
Yours truly,
Karen Nelson, EdD
Superintendent of Schools

School Supply Invoices

We provide school supplies for all students so that everyone has all of the items that they need and so that all supply items are similar. Also, because we buy in bulk, we are able to get quality items at a very good price.

The school supply full fee is applicable even if students arrive part way through the school year. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the office at 604-796-2838 or lavern.klassen@sd78.bc.ca.

Payment can be made by cash, cheque or e-transfer to lavern.klassen@sd78.bc.ca. Please email us first for the e-transfer security question and answer.

Volunteering

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Harrison Hot Springs Elementary! We appreciate our volunteers and we understand that they are an integral component of curricular and extra-curricular field trips to both local and non-local destinations. Thank you to all of you who take the time to help out.

To ensure the safety and well-being of our students at HHSE, we require adult supervisors to provide a satisfactory Criminal Record Check in accordance with School District 78 Policy #6507. Please fill out the forms on this page including the section on page 2 for working with a vulnerable sector (children) and take it with two (1 photo) pieces of identification (driver’s license, Personal Health number, passport, status card, BC ID, firearms license, etc) to your local police station in your home town.

The Agassiz RCMP is open Monday to Friday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. Criminal record checks for volunteers are free. Once you receive it, please bring it to the office and we will have it approved by our School District office. The approved Criminal Record Check will remain in effect for two years.

If you have any questions, please contact the Secretary.
Thank you!
