Hello Bayview Parents, We are experiencing an unplanned power outage at Bayview. We cannot operate our program in the school without power, so our staff are walking all Bayview children to General Gordon Elementary (along 6th Avenue). Please pick up your child as early as possible today. Our program at GG can house all of the kids from both programs in an emergency, but I’m sure you can imagine how cramped it will be. Our General Gordon program is located in the lunchroom of the school, on the southwest corner of 6th and Bayswater. The phone number there is 604…

Chickenpox at Bayview

Hi Bayview Parents, A heads up to all families that there are now six reported cases of chickenpox at Bayview school, and one at JKC. We are working with the school to confirm new cases as they appear.  To our knowledge, the school hasn’t yet declared “outbreak” status, but in circumstances such as these we suggest that children who are immunocompromised, unvaccinated, or have family members at home who are at risk (elderly relatives, newborns, pregnant mothers) stay home and not attend JKC until we can determine the outbreak has ceased. Our Parent Agreement (signed copies are in the files of all…
