Students will be able to sign up for their lockers as of Wednesday, September 5th, 2018 at noon.

Access to the lockers is gained through our Raven’s App.


Temporary bus passes are available for pick up in the school office starting Tuesday, September 4th, 2018.

The bus passes will be required starting the first week of school to ride the school bus. Students will be picked up on Tuesday morning without their bus passes.

Permanent bus passes will be available at a later date.


We receive many phone calls over the summer from parents wondering what school supplies their son or daughter should bring to Royal Bay Secondary School in September.  At Royal Bay, some teachers will want students to bring specific items to work on assignments; this information will be communicated during the first week of classes.  We have, however, come up with a generic list of items that could be used in all classes, and will be helpful during those first few days until parents can shop for the specialty items:

  • 3-ring binder with loose leaf paper & dividers
  • Pens & pencils
  • Highlighter

The school will be closed for a full staff meeting until 1:00 pm on Thursday, August 30, 2018.

The school office will reopen at 1:00 pm.

Counselors and teachers will not be available for the remainder of the day.

Thank you.



Our school photo day is the first Friday back.

All students will receive information about photo packages.

All students will have their photo taken as this is use for their school ID, yearbook and bus passes.

There is no obligation to purchase photo packages.

In 2016, Royal Bay Secondary began a ‘School Travel Planning’ process; a focused method aiming to increase the number of students and families who travel actively to school and decrease traffic congestion around the school site.

‘Active travel’ is choosing modes of transportation that use our bodies. By walking, biking, taking transit or using a ‘Drive to Five’ location we will create a safer school environment, increase our children’s ability to sit, focus and learn, address mental, physical and emotional health concerns that are present for many families today, create a strong connected community and show appreciation for the natural spaces around us.

Please consider the attached ‘Best Routes’ map to find your walking or cycling route, your nearest transit stops or your nearest ‘Drive to Five’ location.

Please find attached below more information, including a route map.
