You will be required to sign in, sanitize your hands, and your keyboard and mouse before AND after using a computer, and SIGN OUT. All students and staff are required to wear a mask at all times and physically distance. No food or drink is allowed. The use of the Equity Space is a privilege that may be revoked if the rules as stated above are not followed.
The sign-up sheet will be posted outside the library on Monday morning. Please speak to your counselor if you do not have access to a device at home and would like to request the loan of a school device.
Sept 17 - Message from Ms. K. Thomson - Daily Health Assessment Checklist
Dear Killarney parents and students,
The Daily Health Assessment checklist has been updated by the BCCDC and the VSB and a copy is attached to this message. This updated checklist explains what to do if you answer “YES” to ONE of the questions included under “Key Symptoms of Illness” (excluding fever). It also gives further guidance to families if you answered “YES” to two or more of the questions under “Key Symptoms of Illness” OR if the student has a fever.
Please review the new checklist, and download a copy to refer to when you do the daily health assessment with your child before sending them to school.
You DO NOT need to sign again agreeing to conduct the daily health assessment. The signed copy you have already sent back to school is on file.
Sept 17 & 18 - REMINDER TO ALL STUDENTS - PHOTO DAY will be taking place over 2 days (September 17 & 18) Please see schedule in "Photo Day" link above. Another link will be provided for parents to purchase photos through Artona Studios soon after. Your patience is appreciated.

Sept 9 - HOW TO READ MY SCHEDULE - Quarterly Rotations explained.pdf- Please read this info sheet to help you decipher your 1-1/1-2, A/B, Face to Face (F2F) and Remote times.
Sept 9 - There have been numerous calls regarding access to MyEd and password resets. All students must use their VSB email in order to reset their passwords. The VSB email is generally the student number as follows firstname.lastname@example.org. If your MyEd account has any other email address , you will not be able to reset your password as the temporary password only gets delivered to the VSB email. We expect each student to look after their account and access their MyEd at any time. It is up to each individual student to maintain their accounts. If you are new to these, click on this link located under Family Portal to start your MyEd account: https://www.vsb.bc.ca/Student_...
If you have followed all the instructions and tried your best but are still having difficulty, please contact your appropriate Grade Administrator:
Grade 8 & 12 students - VP - Ms. Katrina Thomson - Email: email@example.com
Grade 9 & 11 students - VP - Mr. Tom Myring - Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Grade 10 - VP - Ms. Darlene Hughes - Email: email@example.com
Sept 8 - Message sent via phone to Grade 8 Parents & Students: Due to the fact that the timetable is still being adjusted, many student schedules may still change. Therefore, contrary to our earlier message, we will NOT print out all grade 8 schedules this time. Please login to MyEd BC to view your schedule and check it again on Thursday morning before coming to school to make sure you have the most up to date schedule. We apologize for this confusion. The timetable is extremely complicated this year due to splitting classes into two halves. Thank you for your patience.
Sept 8 - Once you are able to see your schedule, we suggest that you take a screen shot of your schedule on your phone or print it out at home so that you have it available when you come to school. We do not have the ability to print out individual schedules for students who did not bring theirs. Thank you.
