Dear Eric Hamber Families,

We are looking forward to welcoming students safely back to Eric Hamber this week. 

As you are aware, the Ministry of Education has delayed the start of the school year for student attendance.  School instruction will resume on Monday, September 14, 2020.  

Student orientation days will be on:

  • Thursday, September 10, 2020 (Grade 8’s only), and
  • Friday, September 11, 2020 (Grades 9 – 12). 

Grade 8 Orientation - Thursday, September 10, 2020

On Tuesday, September 8, 2020, Grade 8 students were sent an email from their first period (P 1.1) teacher indicating their learning group - 1.1.A or 1.1 B.  (If you did not receive this email on Tuesday, September 8, 2020, please phone our school office at 604-713-8927 between 8:30 am and 3:30 pm and we will help you with this information.)

In the email Grade 8 students would have also received information indicating which of the following four orientation groups they are asked to report to on our school’s north west Oval Field for their orientation on September 10, 2020:

Group 1 - 1.1 A

8:45 am - 9:45 am

Group 2 - 1.1 A

10:15 am - 11:15 am

Group 3 - 1.1 B

12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Group 4 - 1.1 B

1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Grade 8 teachers, Grade 12 Peer Counsellors, Grade 8 Counsellor Clive Smith, and Grade 8 Vice Principal, Sonia Blair, will lead this year’s Grade 8 Orientation.   During their orientation Grade 8 students will learn (1) important health and safety information, (2) how to find their first period class for Monday, September 14, and (3) begin building those very important relationships with one another and their new school community.  

Grade 9 - 12 Student Orientation - Friday, September 11, 2020 

All returning Grade 9 – 12 Eric Hamber students had their MyEd BC Student Accounts reactivated on September 8, 2020.  Students are now able to access their accounts using their last successful login ID and password.  If you have forgotten your password please click on the ‘I Forgot My Password’ link when you go to login. 

Grades 9 – 12 students will need to log-in to their MyEd BC Student Account by Thursday, September 10, 2020, to view their Quarter 1 timetable and make note of their Period 1-1 class, teacher, and room location.  Grade 9 – 12 students please note that your Period 1-1 class has been divided into two cohorts – you will either be in a Day 1 Period 1 A cohort (D1P1(A)) or a Day 1 Period 1 B cohort (D1P1(B)). 

For this year only, Grade 9 – 12 students will attend their Day 1 Period 1 A or B class as follows on Friday, September 11, 2020:

Grade 9’s

8:45 – 9:15 am

The primary purpose of Friday, September 11th's Grade 9 - 12 student orientations is to provide time for teachers to review important Health and Safety information with our students as well as provide time for students to ask questions about the new Quarter system and bell schedule for the year. 

Stay safe Griffins, see you soon.
