Welcome back! As we move into a new school year, the Burnaby School District continues to take direction from the Fraser Health Authority, as well as the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education. Our priority is to be to maintain a healthy and safe environment while providing engaging and meaningful learning opportunities for our students.
First Week September 7th-10th (Grades 1-7 Students):
Our first day of school is Tuesday, September 7th and students will attend from 8:55 am to 10:00 am. The students will return to their previous year’s class for the first week and will move to their new classes on Monday. All NEW students, and students that did not attend in-person learning last year, please go the gym and wait outside the outdoor gym doors. There will be signs directing new families where to go. Please bring your school supplies, as students will need them this week. Incoming Kindergarten students do not attend. *If you are not sure where your child(ren) should go, please go to the gym.
Bell Schedule: (Commencing Wednesday, Sept. 8th)

Masks: All staff, visitors, and all students in Grades 4-12 are required to wear a mask while indoors at school. Students in Kindergarten to Grade 3 are strongly encouraged to do so, as well. Masks will be provided to those who need them.
Health Check: Students and staff will continue to be asked to do the daily health check to determine if they should come into the building that day and should not attend if they are unwell.
We look forward to welcoming your child back to school and to another successful year of learning at Buckingham!
