June 9, 2019
Hope you are all enjoying your Sunday. Only three more weeks to go … and they are all out sprints!! It’s a very busy time, so please be sure to read through the information below carefully.
New Information To Share:
Band Concert: This Thursday is our Year End Band Concert. We have one performance for the school at 1:30 as well as a show at night starting at 6:00pm. Family members are welcome to either of these.
Grad Walk / Gold & Green Day: This Friday is our Grad Walk with Langley Secondary as well as Green and Gold Day! This is where former HD Stafford Middle students come back to celebrate their amazing achievement with our staff and students! They should be walking our halls around 12:30pm. The community is welcome to join!
Car show: This year’s car show is going to be an amazing fundraiser for our school. It is held on Sunday June 23rd from 10 – 4pm. We have several local bands, food trucks, venders and over 200 cars. Please bring your family to this great event!
2019 – 2020 Bussing Information: Transportation registration is now open for the 2019/2020 school year. Families can register online at https://www.sd35.bc.ca/schools/transportation/. We now have “E-link”, a new additional component that provides updated bus stop information to families at any given time. “E-link” instructions will be posted on the District website August 19th, and families can access their bussing information there. We will also make this system accessible to administrators and administrative assistants for increased visibility of transportation assignments.
The deadline of June 28th ensures that the Transportation Administration can meet the requirements of the Commercial Vehicle Safety Enforcement Branch for the September startup. If you miss the registration, a late registration will be open August 3rd to September 16th. If you register late, please arrange to transport your child(ren) for a minimum of the first three weeks of the new school year to allow time to load these late registrations.
Additional changes are listed as follows:
Changes to Online Registration
- There are two registration links this year: non-International students and International students.
- The closing date for registration is June 28th (Once registration is closed, the transportation staff will create the needed routes and load the registrations)
- International Homestay Parents can request refunds via firstname.lastname@example.org
- Parents will be given access to E-Link by August 19th to allow access to see bus stop locations for their own child(ren). (More information will be sent out regarding the use of E-Link in August).
