Letter to Belmont Families about Class Placements for Monday, Sept. 8th

September 5, 2019

Thursday, September 5, 2019

Dear Belmont Families,

We have had a great start to our year this week.  It has been exciting to meet all of the students and see their excitement about learning!  I know that students have enjoyed this week, but I’m sure that they are looking forward to moving into their new permanent classes on Monday, September 9th.

In June and again in September, teachers and administration meet to discuss the best academic placement for each student for the following year. In September, class placement decisions take into consideration newly arriving or departing students and the impact on class numbers and dynamic. Each child’s academic and social needs are taken into consideration. Parent requests are also reviewed by administration. It is our hope that you will trust our judgement regarding the classroom placement of your children for this upcoming school year.

In order to prepare from the upcoming year on the computer operating system, we will be shutting down the Parent Portal over the next few days in order to fully input the students into classes for the upcoming year.  The Portal will open again on Sunday, September 8th @ 1 p.m.

On Sunday, September 8th after 1 p.m., parents can check the Grade 1 – 7 class assignments online on the MyEd Parent Portal in order to see class assignments.  Access to the MyEd Parent Portal and help guides for use can be found here:  https://www.sd35.bc.ca/students-parents/myedbc-family-portal-help/

If you are not able to access the Parent Portal, you can also check class lists in the front foyer after 8 a.m. on Monday, September 9th. For privacy reasons, please do not photograph these class lists or post them on line.

As with most schools in Langley, our school is very full.  We currently have a waitlist. It is very difficult at this point to move students from their assigned classes. However, if you still feel that you need to speak with me regarding your child’s classroom placement, I will begin taking appointments for this subject matter only after Wednesday, September 11th, beginning at 8:00 a.m. Please call the office in order to make an appointment if necessary.

 

Kind Regards,

Tim Bonnar
