Octa 2 Information Letter



Hello All students, parents & guardians;

We are very excited to have you back in our school.  Please watch the video presentation https://youtu.be/lIwfnoprHMk that explains the student entry points, and other Covid-19 expectations. The link is also available on the Royal Bay Website.

When arriving at Royal Bay, students will need to find their proper entrance and proceed to it directly. Staff will be waiting to receive them. Signs on each entry point have maps, entrance numbers and classes listed. Students are asked not to gather at the entry points and to don a mask if they cannot physically distance and as they enter the school. Students will all be provided with a cloth mask from their teacher.  The AM/PM information can be found on the MyEd Portal or on the website.  Please know that the most up to date class information will be found on the MyEd Portal, as some class changes have occurred this week.

When arriving at school please make sure to wear a mask, physically distance while following all COVID 19 related safety measures.  The same expectations will apply when in the school and in the common areas.  We ask that you arrive 15 minutes before the start of the scheduled class and proceed to your designated entry point.  Once in the building a mask should be worn when in common areas while to you proceed to your classroom.  Staff will be at each entry to help you get to the right spot if you have questions.  The front door is for staff.

We are looking forward to seeing you on Monday. Have a great weekend.


Thank you,

Royal Bay Admin.

Please note: Masks must be worn at all times and students must sanitize hands and sign in upon entry and exit.

Our Library collection is open via Destiny Discover; we encourage you to browse using our online library catalogue, sign in (SD62 Login) and select your next great read by putting a hold on it. We will have your books ready for pick up the next day.

RBSS  Grade 9 student Parents/Guardians

Watch for immunization consent packages for grade 9 students that will be sent home early in the fall. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, students in Grade 9 will be offered immunizations through a booked appointment at the health unit. Please review the consent packages, fill out the consent forms and return to the school. Please then contact the Westshore Health Unit at 250-519-3490 to book your appointment. If you have any questions please ask to speak with a School Health Nurse.

A grade 9 student can make an informed decision about immunization regardless of their parent/guardian/representative decision to consent or refuse immunization.

Dear RBSS Parents

District busses are now servicing Royal Bay.  If you have been dropping off your student please know that the bus loop at the front of the school is now only for district school busses use.  You can access the school drop off loop at the entrance nearer the artificial turf field.  Your efforts in getting your student here to Royal Bay over the last week has been very much appreciated. We would like to remind you that the two parking lots in front of the school are for staff and visitors.  There is a parking lot at the end of the fields for staff overflow, students and parents.


Dear RBSS Parents and Families

The Daily Student Health Assessment information has now been added to the online consent portal. All parents/guardians must carefully review this information and agree that they will perform daily health assessments as outlined in the Daily Student Health Agreement prior to the child attending school.  This must be done by all families and guardians.

Parents or guardians wanting to set up a meeting with counsellors or school staff will be required to set up a pre-arranged meeting time.  We would love to meet in person, but we are unable to accommodate drop in visits or meetings.   Parent/guardian meetings will be conducted through MS teams or by phone calls.    

If you are planning on making an appointment please contact 250-474-2377 or royalbay@sd62.bc.ca to set up an phone or MS teams appointment. 

If you have an in-person meeting for extenuating educational needs that cannot be met through a phone call or MS teams meeting you will need to complete the following checklist found at https://www.sd62.bc.ca/visitor-health-check-consent.
