Consent Forms Online – All consent forms such as Fieldtrips, media, internet, etc. are done online. These forms give consent for teachers to take your child(ren) on local field trips, to work on projects within the class and much more. If you have not completed these forms please visit https://consent.sd62.bc.ca. If you require assistance with this or have questions, please contact Ms. Kerry in the office.
Lost and Found
Note any items left outside, in the hallways, gym etc. are placed in the ‘Lost and Found’ baskets located just outside the office. At the end of each month, Mr. Vince, our custodian, will gather any items not claimed for the donation bin. Please be sure to check these baskets through the month if your child is missing something.
An additional note on Lost and Found – Some other steps in place:
-a sweep of outside grounds takes place at the end of recess and lunch each day with items brought to the baskets.
-items will be laid out a couple times a month (like during the Meet the Team Night) for students can see, with teachers’ assistance
-the left items after that, will be packed up into the first week of the next month – with a reminder going home

On behalf of the Saseenos Team, have a great week!
