Welcome to Delta Secondary School

 


Welcome to the 2017 – 2018 school year!   I hope that this mailing finds you rested and re-charged for the challenge and excitement of our new school year.  Welcome back to our returning students and their families, and a special welcome to our many new students and families, as they prepare to take their first steps as a part of the Pacer community.  I would also like to extend a special welcome to our Graduating class of 2018 as they begin their final year of high school.

With August coming to a close, we turn our attention to key start up details.  We have posted all school start-up information on the Delta Secondary School website http://de.deltasd.bc.ca/.  Under the “About” tab, you will find all of the information (including our opening day schedule, calendar, student accident insurance info, PAC information, etc.) that you may need to begin the year successfully.  Printed copies are available from the main office, during regular business hours.

Our school has been closed for the past two summers due to the seismic upgrade, however, this year the school is open and all grade 8 students are welcome to come to the gym on Thursday, August 31st at 1:00 p.m. to pick up their locator cards.  There will be some of our “big buddies” here to help them find their classrooms.  All students who are new to the school are also welcome to come in at that time.

As in the past, we have tried to keep this mailing small.  Through the use of Parent Connect and by posting information to our website, we are reducing our paper and postage usage, while striving to improve the quality of our communications.  This year we will be using an automatic email to report any unexcused absences that your child may have.  Please contact the teacher directly if there is a discrepancy in the attendance reporting.  Please ensure that your email address is correct on Parent Connect.  We thank you for your support of this initiative and we welcome your feedback and suggestions.

Please turn to the back of this page to see the full listing of Permission Forms Information.

Once again, welcome back!

Principal
