A message from Principal Leung:

“August 27th, 2019

Dear Van Horne Parents / Guardians:

We would like to extend a warm welcome to all Van Horne families!  We hope you had a fun-filled and restful summer! 

This letter is to provide information about our school’s opening procedures for the 2019–2020 School Year.

As is Vancouver School Board practice, students will be in attendance on Opening Day for only one hour, from 9:00 am to 10:00 am. This is to allow the school the opportunity to see which students are returning and if there are any new students registering. Please let the school know if your child(ren) are not coming on the first day (or week or more). It is very important in helping us finalize our class organizations.

After the first day we operate on our typical schedule.

In the past, we have asked students to go back to last year’s classroom on the first day. This year we are making a change. We are asking all students to go to the gym at 9am. From there we will direct students where to go. Please have all students sit in their grade groups. There will be posted signs in the gym.

(Kindergarten parents should have already received their separate instructions during the summer)
