A Quick Update.

Dear Parents, 

With the first full week of school coming to a close we wanted to send out a couple messages. First off, thank you! Thank you parents for helping us create a safe environment for all and for following the protocols in place. Students have been doing a great job with handwashing and following all other protocols within the school and on the playground. Thank you for working together with us to start this school year off on a positive note. 

Secondly, there is a new Daily Health Check available. This is updated from the first one and has more detail on what to do with certain symptoms. You will find this new form with this post. Please ensure that a daily health check is done each morning before sending your child to school. 

Lastly, keep your eyes out for a school newsletter coming home with your child soon! It contains lots of important information on it including picture day, canteen, safety information and lots more! 

Have a great weekend!

Church Parking Lot

If you usually park in the church parking lot when picking your child up at the end of the day, please park somewhere else on Monday (Sept. 20). There is a funeral that afternoon and the parking lot is needed. Thank you.

Summer Wishes

The staff at Alwin Holland wishes everyone a safe, refreshing and relaxing summer. For many, the usual travel plans are on hold. We wish you a wonderful staycation. If you do travel, we wish you safe journeys.

Normally, our first day of school for students in Grades 1 to 6 would be on Tuesday, September 8th. Kindergarten students have a gradual entry schedule that begins with a part day on the 9th. Due to COVD-19, we are not sure what September is going to look like, but we will do our best to keep our school community informed.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page (Alwin Holland Elementary), this website, or the district website (www.prn.bc.ca) for updates.

PAC Meeting

There is a PAC meeting Wednesday, June 17th at 7:00pm.

Bring a camping chair to sit on and meet us on the tarmac between the gym and the portables.

We hope to see you there!

Welcome to Kindergarten!

Tonight we are hosting our Welcome to Kindergarten event for children entering kindergarten at Alwin Holland in September 2020. This newsletter is the same one you will be receiving in your bags but has easy to access links on it!

If you did not receive a call from the school with your time to attend this evening or you have not registered your kindergarten child yet, please call the office for more details.


Dear Parents/Guardians, 

As you are probably aware, parents will have the choice to send their children back to school again starting on June 2nd. Students will be able to attend two days per week, with classes at or below 50% capacity. 

In the next couple of days you will be receiving some sort of communication (email, phone call, etc.) from your child’s teacher. The teacher will be asking you if you are planning on sending your child/children back to school starting June 2nd and if your child will be riding the bus . In order for us to finalize schedules, we need to know this information in a timely manner. Please ensure you have had contact with your student’s teacher by noon on Monday, May 25th, 2020. Please don’t hesitate to contact your teacher if you haven’t heard from them. Any information gathered after May 25th may result in a delay attending in-class sessions. 

Another contact will be made next week indicating what days your child will be attending and the protocols that need to be followed when coming to school. Because of our large population, we cannot accommodate requests for specific days. Siblings will attend on the same days. Please do not hesitate to contact your teacher or the school if you have any questions. 

Thank you for your understanding and patience with us as we navigate this fast paced transition. Our teachers and support staff are working very hard to create the most welcoming and safe environment for all. 

Kind Regards, 

Alwin Holland Admin.
