SAFE ARRIVAL  Thank you to parents who have been calling or e-mailing in the morning to let us know when their children will be away for the day. We will continue to phone parents to check on students who are not present during morning attendance, as our main concern is student safety. However, if parents are able to call or e-mail the school between 8:00 and 9:00, it is greatly appreciated.   250-847-4464  The best e-mail address to use for advising us of student absences is: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Please comply with the “no parking” signs along the sidewalk in the drop-off zone.   In the interest of safety and to minimize congestion in our parking lot, please only stop briefly to pick up or let your children off. If you need to leave your vehicle, we request you make use of our parking lot. Thank-you for your help with this!

NEWS from STRONG START  Welcome to a new school year!  For parents of children attending Lake Kathlyn Strong Start, we are in a beautiful new room at Walnut Park.  Please enter through the primary wing through the far right doors.  I will at some point have a sandwich board to mark the entrance.  The program will run Monday through Friday 9:00 am through 11:45 am.  We are going to have a lot of activities and I look forward to seeing all of you and meeting new families.  Please follow the program on Facebook "Walnut Park Strong Start" for day to day or weekly updates on activities and field trips.  We begin on Monday, September 12th.
