Dear Belmont Parents,
Grade 1 – 7 students will move into new temporary classes on Monday, September 14th. As much as possible, we will be keeping students in these classes moving forwards. These classes will become permanent once the School District gives permission to do so. That will depend on any changes in numbers across the district.
These Grade 1 – 7 class assignments have now been posted online on the MyEd Parent Portal 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 at the front of the school at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, September 14th. For privacy reasons, please do not photograph these class lists or post them on line.
At this point, the Parent Portal is showing what Division a student is in, but not the teacher name. Our list on teachers is on the Staff Directory on our website (or available by clicking on the Division List – 2020-2021 – with Room Number).
In June and again in September, teachers and administration meet to discuss the best academic placement for each student for the following year. 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. We have an excellent staff and are confident that each classroom will be a place of learning and belonging this year.
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 16th, beginning at 8:00 a.m. Starting on Monday, parents may call the office in order to make an appointment if necessary.
