Some fun decorating throughout the school

Hot Lunch is back! Ordering is now open. The last day for ordering is Friday, October 30th. https://munchalunch.com/schools/Devereaux/.

Last March as we all headed off on Spring Break, I made sure every child went home with library books to read over the break. Then the break turned into a VERY LONG BREAK from school because of COVID. I am sending home overdue notices this week. Please look at home for any Devereaux Library Books. I know it has been a long time and they are probably hidden in bookshelves or the toy box after 6 months. A few students had books that were overdue before Spring Break as well. Please try to do your best to find any books you may have, I know it has been a long time so I am very understanding if it can’t be found, but please try your best.



Thank you to Farm Credit Canada for choosing our school to be a recipient of your Drive Away Hunger food donation program. We really appreciate it!

Photo proofs were sent home earlier this week. Ordering is done online with the code that is on your proof card. Click on this link for ordering information https://mountainwest.ca/Orders/HowtoOrder.

If you have a family of 3 or more the family discount will be applied at the check out. Once you enter your first child's information and you go to the cart there is an option to add another student. Add all of your children in and then check out and your discount will be applied.

Once there is enough snow, children will be able to slide at recess and lunch. We will require them to wear a helmet when sliding. They are welcome to bring their own helmets from home, just make sure they are labelled with their name.

Drop off and Pick Up Safety

Parents, please ensure that when you pick up your child from the school during the day (if they are sick, injured or have an appointment) that you come to the front door to receive them. Also, it is important that the bus loading zone is clear in the morning (from 7:45 – 8:10 am) and the afternoon (from 1:30 – 2:20 pm) for the buses. If you are dropping off your child during those busy times, please drop them off on the west side of the parking lot by the gym and have them walk along the school building on the sidewalk to enter the school.

Thank you!

School Phone

Ms. Klein is able to answer our phone on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays between 8:45 am to 2:15 pm. If you call at another time and there is no answer, please leave a message and we will return your call as soon as possible. We do check the messages before 2:05 to ensure we know about any bus changes for students.

Thank you for keeping us in the loop about bussing changes for your child as well as calling the bus garage. We really appreciate a phone call or note in your child’s agenda so that we can ensure your child is accounted for after school. Please call the bus garage directly with any questions regarding student pick up/drop off at 250-782-2106.
As the weather is getting colder, we ask that parents do not park in front of the gym so it frees up parking for the staff to plug their vehicles in.

Winter has hit! Please make sure to send appropriate winter attire (toque, snow pants, mitts, etc) with your child as they do go outside twice a day.
