Blue Mountain Strong Start Centre Relocation

May 18, 2018 3:34 PM

Due to the need to accommodate ongoing elementary enrolment growth both in the Blue Mountain catchment and more broadly in the East Capital Zone of the district, the Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows School District recently applied to move the StrongStart Centre located at Blue Mountain Elementary to Garibaldi Secondary school. The district has now received approval from the Ministry of Education for this move, which will come into effect September 1, 2018.

The school district highly values the early learning programming support that our Strong Start program provides to the Blue Mountain community and surrounding communities, and is therefore pleased to be able to retain this program in the neighbourhood it is intended to serve.

Assistant Superintendent David Vandergugten, who oversees StrongStart programming in our school district, will attend the Thursday, June 7, 2018* PAC meeting in the school library at Blue Mountain Elementary at 7:00 pm to share further details and to answer any questions. Blue Mountain Elementary is located 12153 – 248 Street, Maple Ridge. (Note: the original date for this meeting was scheduled for June 14, 2018.)

Up-to-date information on all of the SD 42 Strong Start Centres can be found at http://www.sd42.ca/program/strongstart/.
