The Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows School District has been advised that the Ministry of Education has now resolved the issue with student assessment marks and the revised student transcripts will be posted online today (July 31, 2019).

To ensure that there is no detrimental impact to BC students resulting from this delay the ministry has contacted every post-secondary institution in BC and across Canada, and reached out to NCAA, to update them of this situation.

Leading-edge mental health supports coming for Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows students

July 17, 2019 6:55 PM

Press release: Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions

Monday, July 8, 2019

Students in the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows School District will have a clearer, easier-to-understand path to mental health and substance use services.

A “one care plan” approach is a new service delivery model being introduced in their school district.

Integrated teams will work closely with school and team-based primary care and specialized services providers to offer wraparound care to children, youth and their families. This means individuals experiencing mental health and substance use challenges and their families will no longer need to retell their stories to different care providers or search on their own for the supports they need. 

“For too many years, a fragmented and unco-ordinated system of care has left many families struggling to find the right mental health and addiction supports for their children before things reach a crisis point,” said Judy Darcy, Minister of Mental Health and Addictions. “Integrated child and youth teams are one way we are making it easier to connect children and youth to the right care, where and when they need it at school and in the community.”  (more…)

BC Government’s measles vaccine catch-up program update

April 29, 2019 4:44 PM

Dear Parents/Guardians and Caregivers,

RE: BC Government’s measles vaccine catch-up program for school-aged children from April to June 2019 – UPDATE

The measles vaccine catch-up program for school-aged children is currently underway. As we continue to see measles cases throughout the Lower Mainland, and as government prepares for mandatory reporting of vaccines to schools, we are taking steps to ensure your child’s vaccines are up to date.

We are reviewing student records to determine who has been vaccinated. Fraser Health is mailing letters directly to households for those students that are not up to date with measles vaccines.

Due to the large volume of students, it will take several weeks to contact all affected students. It is not necessary to request your child’s records at this time. (more…)
