Reporting update

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Our district reporting committee has been working hard to refine our reporting practice as the new Ministry of education curriculum becomes the norm in school.  We will continue to have student focussed conferences that emphasize the processes of learning as much as the products.  Please feel free to discuss any questions you might have with your teacher or I.

District Busing Survey

Dear parent/guardian,

As you may know, in order to meet the provincially mandated administrative savings target of $1.35 million, the Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows School District Board of Education made the difficult decision during last years budget process to discontinue regular student transportation starting September 2016.

We are writing today because school bus transportation provider First Student Canada is exploring the possibility of offering school bus service in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows for a fee for the 2016-2017 school year, and has prepared a survey to determine how many parents would be interested in this service. 

To take this brief survey, visit The survey will close on Friday, May 20, 2016.
