Withdrawal process for students leaving the school district

July 6, 2022 2:25 AM

Dear parents/guardians,

As a reminder, if your child is leaving the Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows School District (e.g. your family is moving outside of the district), you must complete a withdrawal form on the Parent Portal. Withdrawing through the Parent Portal helps us ensure student records are transferred to your child’s new school in a timely manner. 

To complete a withdrawal form, log in to your Parent Portal account, click on the “Registration” tab, and under “New Requests” select the appropriate withdrawal period. 

Contact your child’s new school/school district to inquire about their registration process. If you are withdrawing more than one child, complete a separate request for each child.

• A withdrawal cannot be used to request a different school within the Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows School District (SD42). If your child is currently attending an SD42 school and you would like to request a transfer to a different school within our district, you will need to complete a transfer request.

Changes to Provincial Covid-19 Communicable Guidelines for K-12 Settings

April 21, 2022 10:30 AM

Dear families,

On March 11, 2022, I provided you with an update on the changes made to Provincial COVID-19 Communicable Disease Guidelines for K-12 Settings. Since that time, the guidelines have been further revised to incorporate public health guidance from the BC Centre for Disease Control.

The most significant changes include the following:

  1. Health Awareness: We are now transitioning from the daily health check to the more general approach of health awareness. Health awareness includes checking regularly for any symptoms of illness (including but not limited to Covid-19 symptoms), and staying home when sick (including if one is unable to participate fully in regular activities due to symptoms of illness).
  2. Events and Gatherings: Events and gatherings can return to 100% capacity.

You can review the updated document in full here.

Sincerely,

Harry Dhillon
Superintendent of Schools
