Greetings from SAS!

Good afternoon SAS families,

We hope this email finds you and your family safe and healthy.  These truly are extraordinary times.  We are hopeful you have received and read over the letter from the district, explaining what ‘Learning from Home’ will look like moving forward.

Here is a link:  https://sd83.bc.ca/2020/03/30/what-will-learning-from-home-look-like/

At SAS, our teachers have been assigned to a group of students to contact this week.  These conversation will be to check in, and to gather important information our school and district requires for planning purposes.

You can expect a phone call during one of these time slots: 

  • Tuesday (2 – 4pm),
  • Wednesday (12 – 2pm),
  • Thursday (10-12pm),
  • Friday (8 – 10am or 2 – 4pm). 

If teachers cannot reach you, they will attempt to leave a message and call you back at another time.  Please note, because of the technology we are using, your call display may show “No Caller ID” or “Private Caller”.

We know many of you have questions related to course work, assessment, graduation, scholarships, and access to the school… to name just a few.  Please be patient as we develop and implement plans for our new reality.  We will continue to use our website to post general information.  You can also expect to receive phone calls or emails when we have important updates or specific information to share.  

Take care and we will remain in touch.

Sincerely,

Rob & Deanna
