Week at a Glance February 11 – 15

Dear VWS Families,

I would like to express my gratitude to everyone involved in bringing together the Chinese New Year celebration last Friday afternoon. I was deeply touched by the warmth and generosity of our families; it was a pleasure to participate in all the activities offered and to try some delicious snacks. I will have some photos to share in the newsletter on Thursday.

Another snowfall is expected for North Vancouver, beginning this afternoon. In the event that it accumulates, please familiarize yourself with the following inclement weather recommendations.

The school will be closed if weather conditions hinder travel to and from school. If heavy snowfall has occurred overnight, a decision as to whether or not to close the school will be made by 6:00 am. Parents can find out in the following ways if the school is closed:
A message on the school homepage vws.ca

  • Class phone tree
  • Email message from the Communications Office
  • Listen to the radio CBC AM 690, News AM 1130

If inclement weather ensues once the students are already at school, classes will continue as usual where possible. A staff member will remain at each school site until all students have made safe arrangements to return to their parents/guardians.

Wishing you a wonderful (winter wonderland) week ahead!
