NEW Crossing Light at Trafalgar and 16th

Please note the change in traffic pattern at the intersection of Trafalgar and 16th. This new pedestrian and cycling crossing light will make the daily commute for many of our families much safer at this very busy intersection. Please watch for the light if driving and show the kids how it works if walking or cycling. We’d like to also say a big THANK YOU! to those persistent parents and guardians who helped to have this light installed with their many phone calls and letters to the City. Way to GO!

Monthly Coffee Morning Tomorrow– Friday January 13th 9–10AM

Put Those Lunch Bags Away! Hot Lunch is Tomorrow – Friday January 13th

Hot lunch is this Friday and a note that the hot lunch system will soon be open to order hot lunches for hot lunches from February to June. You can order for the whole semester or families can still order for the next and all hot lunches by the Thursday at midnight deadline a week before any hot lunch.
Did you know? Hot lunch is one of the most significant fundraising campaigns for your PAC. The hot lunch team has worked hard to make the hot lunches healthy and they are all approved by the VSB health standards. The team has also worked to ensure hot lunches are as affordable as they can be and to cut down on landfill waste wherever possible. What an all around great way to support your school!
To browse the menu and order go to trafalgar.hotlunches.net The access code to register for the year is PAC2016HL.

A Message from the Vancouver DPAC:

Winter break 2017/2018 possible date change


The VSB is proposing a change of dates for winter break 2017, revised from the current schedule to Dec 25, 2016 – Jan 5, 2017, to better align with other neighbouring school districts. While this won’t be finalized until the next board meeting on January 23, 2017, it is reasonable to assume that it will be approved.

If parents are making plans or reservations at this point for next winter, I urge all to postpone (if possible) making irrevocable arrangements until after the decision.
