In January 2018, the school district’s School Calendar Committee was convened to develop a School Calendar for the 2018-2019 school year.

In accordance with the Ministry of Education’s School Calendar Regulation, non-instructional days were scheduled in the 2018-2019 school year for the purpose of providing teachers with an opportunity to participate in discussions and activities relating to the implementation of the curriculum.

The Board of Education approved the 2018-2019 School Calendar at its February 28, 2018 Regular Board Meeting with final approval recently received from the Ministry of Education.

The first day of school for the 2018-2019 school year will be Wednesday, September 5, 2018.

Canadians across the country showed their support Thursday, April 12 by wearing sports jerseys as a part of Jersey Day — inspired by a group of British Columbia hockey moms — to show support for the victims of the Humboldt Broncos tragic bus crash.

 

School District Staff wore jerseys to work on April 12 to show their support for the Humboldt Broncos, their families, friends and community.

To show our support for the Humboldt Broncos, their loved ones, friends and community, Coast Mountains School District staff and students wore sports jerseys along with many other schools and organizations across the country to support “Jersey Day” on Thursday, April 12.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Humboldt Broncos, their families and the entire community through this tragic time.  We are all #HumboldtStrong.

Dear CMSD82 Employee,

On March 23, 2018 SmartFindExpress performed an update which has led to some on-call employees receiving calls but being unable to connect to the system.

Included in the update is the following new feature as shared by SmartFindExpress:

  • We have a new option that is not turned on for your district.  The option will need the sub to only enter their pin, and there is a playback to verify what was entered.  This new option has helped reduce many invalid entry phone issues for the subs.
  • You will want to notify the subs that when the system calls they will just need to enter in their pin only.  The system will play back the digits received and then they can confirm or re-enter.

SmartFindExpress believes that turning on this feature will resolve the issues of on-call employees being… Continue reading
