Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,
Although these are difficult times, we are very excited about the upcoming school year and our plan to welcome students back to school.
Over the summer, renovations continued and our school is looking brighter and ready for the 2020-2021 school year.
Attached is our back to school plan, which is based on the current direction of the Ministry of Education.
Please read it carefully as there are details specific to every grade. If you are unable to access the attached plan, paper copies are available at our school in our main foyer.
Looking forward to seeing everyone soon,
Smithers Secondary School
On the first day, students should just bring basic supplies:
Individual teachers will let students know on the first day of classes if any additional supplies are needed.
Dear students, parents and guardians,
We would like your feedback on your experience with education since COVID-19. We are also interested in what you feel is needed if we are continuing on with this model of education delivery in September. Your feedback is much appreciated. Thank you!

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.
