First Day of School
by Petra Migl - Tuesday, 29 August 2017, 8:41 AM

First day of school for students Grade 1-7 : Tuesday, September 5, 2017 from 10:30am - 12noon.

Buses will pick up students 2 hours later than normal for the 10:30am start, and deliver home approx. 2 hours earlier than normal time.

New students and students who have not received a bus registration card in the mail should register for transportation within the first week of school to ensure a bus ride for the school year. Please call the SD73 Transportation Department in Kamloops at 250-372-5853.

Kindergarten students will begin school on Friday, September 8th, 2017.

All Kindergarten students in the Kamloops/Thompson School District are required to attend a full day of school (8:30am-2:30pm) by Wednesday, September 13th. In order to ease the transition from home to school, we are inviting children to visit the Kindergarten classroom for shorter periods of time. Families should have previously signed up for “Welcome to K!” visit times and a “Welcome to K Interview” (parent-child-teacher interviews). Sign-up sheets were made available at the Kindergarten Orientation in June. If you have not signed up for these sessions, please call the school A.S.A.P.
