Thank you for..
- …continuing to do the The Daily Health Check . It is the BEST protection we have for our school community. Thank-you so much for your ongoing diligence with this throughout the year. If your child is experiencing symptoms or if there is a situation that applies to your family and it’s not on the list, please seek out the recommendation of your health care professional.
- …wearing a mask – we are noticing more parents wearing masks on school grounds. Thanks!
- …your donations to Deltassist: Our Grade 7s have typically collected and sorted cans for Deltassist to help families in our community. This year, Deltassist is not accepting food donations, so we will be collecting money, cheques (payable to Pebble Hill Traditional) and Gift Cards for Save-on Foods or Walmart. Thanks for your support of our local families.

*IMPORTANT MESSAGE: With COVID-19 cases rising in BC, we are reminding parents not to be on the school grounds longer than needed and especially during drop-off and pick-up times. If you must be on school grounds, please maintain 2m distance from anyone outside of your immediate family and avoid socializing on the grounds. We recognize that we all miss social interactions but we need to work together during the pandemic. Although masks are not mandatory for adults who are outside during drop-off and pick-up, we do encourage parents to wear one. Most importantly though, please help by social distancing and leaving the school grounds as soon as possible. Thank you!
Virtual Book Fair: (Nov 16-29)
Pebble Hill Panthers – Highlight of the Week:
Crazy Hair Day on Friday was super fun! We love Spirit Days at Pebble Hill!
Focusing on the Positive:
- As you may have seen on the district’s website and social media channels already, over the coming weeks we will be sharing some brief suggestions, tips and activities to help promote feelings of warmth, joy and gratitude.
- Did you know that kindness is about the only thing in the world that doubles when you share it? I encourage you to take two minutes to watch this interesting video from the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation on the science of kindness.
Fraser Health Contact Tracing:
- As shared in the district letter to parents and guardians last week, Fraser Health will reach out directly to families if they think their child has come into close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, and will ask them to take specific action, such as go for a COVID test or self-isolate. In case of COVID exposures at our school, we encourage you to answer phone calls, even if they are from an unknown number, as this will greatly assist Fraser Health with its contact tracing process.
- Q & A’s for parents and teachers on the Fraser Health website: https://www.fraserhealth.ca/health-topics-a-to-z/coronavirus/back-to-school-resources-for-parents-and-teachers#.X5G6mkJKhp8
