Hello everyone,

We need every voice to provide input to help the SD plan next year's school budget.

This is your opportunity to tell the Board what is important to you, your child, your school.

I know this is an impossible time for many parents (I myself work 12 hour shifts as a nurse, so there is no way I can just leave in the middle of the day on short notice, but try to send another parent from your school who can voice your concerns.

We are talking about how the Board is going to make financial decisions for your child next year...this is really important.

Attached find the schedule of meetings, but here is a summary for the next few:


February 24

3:00 p.m.

(Education - Committee of the Whole)

Budget Priorities for 2020-2021



April 6

3:00 p.m.

Finance & Planning – Committee of the Whole



April 9

5:00 p.m.



6:00 p.m.


7:00 p.m.

Presentation to Employee Groups



Dinner Break


Presentation to DPAC, Media, and Public

-        Media are invited to this meeting

-        Video conferencing available to:

The boardroom is at 1383 9th Avenue (just across from Kamloops School of the Arts).

If you can't attend tomorrow, and you don't happen to live in Vavenby, make sure you attend in April.  Again, we need to tell the Board what is important to us, as parents, when it comes to budgeting for next school year.

See you soon, friends, and don't forget to attend Dr. Krank's talk on Vaping and Cannabis at the Henry Grube Centre at 6:30pm on Thursday Feb 27!
