Principal’s Message – April 13

Dear Queen Elizabeth School Community,

A reminder that we have a Professional Development Day tomorrow, Thursday, April 14th, and school will not be in session for students. School will reopen on Tuesday, April 18th following Good Friday and Easter Monday. Also a reminder to families that reporting student absences at 604 517 6080 or through email at and ensuring you complete your Daily Health Check is as important now as ever. Please ensure you are not sending children to school with symptoms of cough, fever, sore throat or runny nose. We appreciate your continued diligence to help ensure the safety of our school community.
