Our leadership class wanted to share a video we’ve been working on over the past couple of weeks to put together.  We asked students to talk about what they missed about Royal Bay, what they were looking forward to going back to, or to share how they were feeling.  We wanted to share with you as we head back to school officially next week.  You’ll have to log into your district account to view it.  Enjoy!

Dear RBSS Grade 12 Students and Families,

We are excited with the recent announcements from the Premier and Public Health Officer that have allowed us to offer an in-person Commencement Ceremony for our graduates in addition to the planned video celebration.   As stated by Superintendent Scott Stinson, there will be an opportunity for small groups of students (groups of 30) to walk across the Royal Bay Teechamitsa Theatre stage as we do our best to recognize our graduates. This event will take place on between Monday, June 22 through Thursday, June 25 during the day between 10am & 4pm.  

As outlined by our Superintendent, students will come to the school in small groups to cross the stage, receive their graduation folder, and take a professional photo. Students will keep their cap and gown. We will be sending out a form next week to confirm whether the student would like to be part of the stage walks, or would like to pick up their graduation materials at a later date.  Once we have an idea of how many students want to participate, we will send out more information with a maximum groups size of 30 students. This event will also be live streamed for families and friends to view remotely.

Our clerical staff will be reaching out to any families who have not provided media consent, as this will be required for any students appearing in the graduation video, or in the live streaming of our school based Commencement Ceremony. Please feel free to check online if you have provided consent already by accessing the District on-line consent form.

June 10 – 16 – Grad Cap & Gown pick-up – School Appointments link to be sent May 28th   

June 20 –  At 20:20 (8:20pm) across BC please join other families as we make noise for our grads of 2020!

June 22-25 – School based Commencement Ceremony (Teechamista Theatre walk-through) – live streamed for families.  Due to health & safety protocols and capacity restrictions.

The graduating class of 2020 is unique in many ways. Most importantly, your commitment to each other and our greater school community has been inspirational as you continue to impress us with your engagement in learning and infectious optimism. We are very proud of your accomplishments and look forward to sharing in the celebration, both as you walk across the stage, and in spirit as you celebrate at home.

Sincerely

 

Mike Huck

Please be aware that these plans are moving quickly and we are working hard to provide you with a meaningful grad experience BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP. If you have handed in your grad comments great! But we are still missing a lot. We need these comments so that you can be properly acknowledged in both the grad video and during the “walking the stage ceremonies.” Your comments are a way for you to acknowledge your time at Royal Bay and to acknowledge people who have had a impact on your educational journey.

Please submit your comments to mglanfield@sd62.bc.ca by noon Monday (May 25th), failing this we have no option but to give you a generic comment. Also we have included a grad T-Shirt in your grad package, please include your T-shirt size with your grad comment.

Dear RBSS students and Families;

As we return to in-class support, hearing from you is important.

The Ministry of Education has announced a partial return to in-class support beginning June 1st. As you may know, returning to in-class support is part-time and voluntary (not mandatory). Teachers will continue to provide and support the continuity of learning plans and learning opportunities through remote (online) learning and other instructional means.

For middle & secondary students, the purpose of a return to school in June is to further support remote learning in academic subjects with a focus on course completion and meeting academic requirements for graduation that cannot be completed remotely. Support for experiential courses will be offered however due to Health & Safety protocols experiential opportunities that involve ‘hands on’ learning such as, art, wood, metal, automotive, foods, culinary arts, home economics, cosmetology, PHE, music, electronics, computer & science labs will not be available.  Students will come to the school via a registration process and by appointment only. 

Please click on the link below and fill out the information – this will help us create plans around how to best offer support over the coming weeks,

If you have library books and/or textbooks that you are finished with, there is a cart just outside the front doors at RBSS.

Monday– Friday 9 am – 2:30 pm (the school will be closed on May 19)

When you come to the school to pick up locker contents, drop off your library and textbooks (if you are finished with them).

Thank you for your help getting these items back to the school.  This ensures that we have enough resources for future RBSS students. 

~Please observe social distancing at all times.~
