Dear Families of our new Kindergarten students,
We hope that this message finds your family members happy and healthy.
During these unprecedented times, it is very unfortunate that we are not able to run our regular Welcome to Montecito event for our incoming Kindergarten children. Instead, we have created a video introducing you and your child to Montecito School as well as some of the staff your child will get to know next school year. We hope that you enjoy watching it!
In addition, you and your child can access books that our teacher librarian, Ms. Field, has read aloud and posted on the Montecito website. To listen, click on the following link: http://blogs.sd41.bc.ca/montecito-library Password: Watchit!
We are waiting for direction from the Ministry of Education and the Burnaby Board of Education before we are able to plan for September. Typically, the first few weeks of September are a gradual entry for Kindergarten children to allow them a positive start to attending school. As soon as we know more, we will communicate with you. We know the uncertainty of plans is not easy and we certainly appreciate your patience.
We look forward to welcoming you to our Montecito school community soon.
Mrs. Heather Kimmie
Principal – Montecito
