Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians,
We are requesting all students to clean out their lockers and take all possessions and books (including textbooks) home during the week of March 30 – April 2, 2020. We have created a schedule based on homeroom, where students will be allowed to enter the school to pick up their belongings. We request that you stick to the schedule and only come in during the times that are assigned to your homeroom teacher.
We want to space people out as much as possible. We request that you keep a minimum of 6 feet away from other students. Please enter through the main front entrance and leave as soon as your locker is cleaned out.
Also, do not come in the school if you are sick or have been exposed to others who are at a high risk of having COVID-19.
Lockers that are not cleaned out next week by students, will be emptied and bagged by school custodians for pick-up at a later date.
The health and safety of students is of the utmost importance. Please abide by the locker clean-out schedule and practice proper hygiene and social distancing while in the school to protect yourself and others.
I miss seeing you all! Learning will be starting up again soon. Please be patient and safe.
Radium Girls will still run tonight! Our theatre capacity is 300, but we are allowed to have 250 guests. Please come early to ensure seating. The first 250 people will be allowed in the theatre. No exceptions.
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.
