Dear Ladner Families,
With our students now settled in to their classes for this year and learning well on its way, here are a couple of reminders that will help keep everyone up to date.
Communication with our parent group is a vital aspect of our Successful Learning Community. Our newsletter and school website (http://le.deltasd.bc.ca/) are our two main avenues for sharing information with our families. Newsletters will be posted via the school website and parents will be sent an email when a newsletter has been added. Please be sure to read each newsletter as each will contain important information. Also, please make sure you have updated your email address on Parent Connect. If you do not have a computer and would like a copy, you may come to office to pick one up. If you are on Twitter consider following us (@LadnerElem) as this is another way information is shared out.
Speaking of Parent Connect, we want to ensure that we have the most current family information possible so it is very important that all our families keep their Parent Connect information up to date.
By logging into “Parent Connect”, families can update phone numbers, email addresses, medical information and emergency contact information. It is extremely important to keep these areas up to date for several reasons. One example is that in the event of an emergency, we can only release students to people who are identified as Emergency Releases. Again, fields that can be updated by the parent/guardian are phone numbers and email addresses, emergency contact names and phone numbers, emergency release and out of province contact names, phone numbers and email addresses.
Through Parent Connect: https://cimsweb.deltasd.bc.ca/schoolconnect/parentssignon.aspx parents can have access to their child’s attendance record, demographic information, emergency contact information, grades and a history of grades. Parent Connect allows one-way communication with teachers and the office. Parents can also print an Info Form (Elem) or an AM/PM Absence Profile for their student. Students currently in grade 7 will use Parent Connect to select courses in high school for next year.
You can now access Parent Connect using your email address. If you have forgotten the Password press “Forgot My Password” and the system will send you an email with this information.
Mr. J. McCallum
