School News

Inclement Weather Guidelines Inclement weather conditions such as freezing rain, significant snowfall or high wind can occur during the fall and winter months. In such conditions, decisions on the opening or closure of school district facilities are made by the Superintendent of Schools in consultation with management and supervisory staff who have checked first-hand on the driving conditions and general condition of buildings.

While service to students and parents is a priority and schools will be kept open as much as is reasonably possible, student and staff safety is the primary consideration.In the event of extreme weather conditions, parents are urged to check the School District website, or, or tune into radio stations STAR FM (98.3 FM), THE DRIVE (89.5FM), to receive up-to-date information on school closures and information on the buses.

Update on B.C.’s New Curriculum from Education Minister Mike Bernier Important updates on B.C.’s new curriculum – on how it will be implemented in grades 10-12, and on the Foundation Skills Assessments (FSA) written in grades 4 and 7.

Survey Community Feedback On Grade Reconfiguration In addressing the needs of our students, the Chilliwack School District is inviting staff, students, parents, community and partners to provide feedback for a possible school reconfiguration through participation in a survey.

Our interest in examining school configuration is first and foremost driven by a desire to create the best learning environment for our students. A secondary consideration is the growth in our student population and our need to make a determination of our future new school. More information is provided in the survey.

The survey link is available by clicking here and will be available until December 21, 2016. The survey can also be accessed by visiting Facebook or Twitter.
