Attention Parents/Guardians,

If your student got their photo taken, during school photo day on Sept 14, they should have received their proof from their Bl-A homeroom teacher. Alternatively, you can view proofs at mylifetouch.ca using your student’s student ID number (your student should know this number).

If you plan to order school photos, we encourage families to use the mylifetouch.ca portal to view their student’s proofs, order photos, and process payment. If you want your order delivered to the school, please complete your order prior to October 11. If you have used the paper order form, in the proof package, please return this and payment, in the provided envelope, to the school office by Tuesday Oct 11, 2022.

School Photo Retakes: Oct 18

 
 

Dear Parents/Guardians, 

We are requesting that you access the online consent system and hopefully agree to the terms within.  The District’s online system has several electronic consent forms for you to review:

Online consent : https://consent.sd62.bc.ca/apps/OnlineConsent

General Consent for Low Risk Field Trips and Activities (annual) – Rather than sending home a paper consent for each activity, this would cover all Low Risk school activities.   High Risk activities require a parent consent each activity.

Google Apps for Education (GAFE) – We are hoping that each of our students have a Google account as this is becoming more and more popular for teachers to use in their classrooms and communicate with home and students.

Internet Access (annual) – Agree to the term of safe use of the internet at school

Media Consent (annual)– Allows us to use student names and pictures in our media publications

School Cash online – You can pay and access all your school fees online.  No need to come into school to pay or write cheques anymore.

My Blueprint – To increase the interaction between parents, students and teachers, we are bringing in a new program for teachers called MyBlueprint.  The MyBlueprint platform is used for career education, digital portfolios and self-assessment core competencies from Kindergarten to Grade 12.

When online, you will have a more thorough explanation of what you are consenting to if you agree to consent.

We strongly urge you to review this system and hopefully consent to what makes sense for you and your family. 

Thanks for your consideration.

RBSS students at work in Meadow Park in the new Royal Bay Community.  Our students and staff are giving back to the local community that is so supportive of our students.  Over the years we have enjoyed great supports and relations with our neighbors.  We are large presence here in Royal Bay and appreciate the beautiful surroundings.  Many programs, staff and academies have signed up their classes for a community clean up event.  Each Friday, students from RBSS will walk the neighboring parks and pick up any loose debris left behind.  We appreciate the ability to learn in such a beautiful area and are committed to keeping it clean and positive.  Thanks to everyone involved!  Our wonderful Girls Lacrosse Academy cleaned up the park and area on January 14- Thanks Team!
