It is our intention to run a smaller craft fair this year in order to accommodate COVID 19 safety requirements within the school building. Due to those restrictions, we have a limited number of tables which will be set up in a one-way flow throughout the school with one entry and one exit (see attached map). There are additional vendor requirements to meet the updated school health codes. See detailed lists below. As a host team, we will be limiting the number of people in the building at any one time. We are hopeful that you may still have an interest in displaying your items or products at the Smithers Secondary School Craft Fair.
Due to COVID 19 and the need to limit people within our building, we are only accepting registration with payment by mail. Cheques must be made payable to Smithers Secondary School. Postdated cheques will NOT be accepted, however if you need to withdraw, your cheque will be returned to you. There are limited tables available and the vendor list will be date stamped as we receive paid registration forms. Confirmation will be sent via email upon receipt of your application and payment.
UPDATE FROM THE DISTRICT:
School District 54 has been given notification that the community of Wit’set has initiated a lockdown procedure for a two-week period due to positive COVID cases in the community. The School District operates under Provincial Health guidelines and recommendations from Northern Health. At this time, we have had no requests from health authorities to limit student attendance at any of our schools. Therefore, students from Wit’set will continue to be welcome at all schools and classrooms during this community process. School District 54 has extensive health and safety plans that are being adhered to and we remain confident in its ability to provide a safe and caring environment for all students. School District will continue to support the community of Wit’set as we manage these difficult times together.
The parent portal will allow access to view Smithers Secondary School report cards and other information for your child (ren).
Bullying...Be in the know
Simply put, bullying is a pattern of unwelcome or aggressive behaviour, often with the goal of making others uncomfortable, scared or hurt. It’s almost always used as a way of having control or power over their target, and it is often based on another person’s appearance, culture, race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity.
Every child deserves an education free from discrimination, bullying, harassment, intimidation and violence. The ERASE (Expect Respect and A Safe Education) Bullying strategy is part of the Province of British Columbia’s efforts to personalize learning and supports for all students.
