Family Affordability Form

A recent article published by CBC stated that food prices in B.C. rose by 10.3% in 2022 and are expected to continue to rise during 2023. This is no surprise to any of us that have been grocery shopping lately! In response to these rising prices affecting basic family needs, the B.C. government has made available a Student and Family Affordability Grant to be made available to families in B.C. and accessed through their child’s school. In response to this, ESS is accepting special requests. If your family has been financially affected by the current tough times, rising prices and inflation rates please complete the short application below and we will provide you with a $50 gift card you selected. 

Fill out the form here.

Morning Drop-Off on Heather St.

View our morning drop-off procedures for Heather Street.

Guidelines for Early Morning Drop-Off

  1. Please remember that our school is located in a high traffic area. To avoid congestion, we must enforce a strict “Drop Off Zone Only” in front of the school.
  2. When approaching the school, please drive up all the way toward the main entrance. Patrol attendants will be guiding and enforcing this.
  3. Please remain in your car during drop off. An attendant will assist your child if needed.
  4. If you need to get out of your car, please drive right, around the corner onto 14th Avenue. Also, there is plenty of 2-hour parking on 15th & 14th Avenue and around the school area, if you need a little extra time with your child.

Thank you for your assistance in making Early Morning Drop Off as efficient and safe as possible.

Emergency Evacuation and Student Release Procedures

In case of Emergency Evacuation due to earthquake, fire, gas leak, flooding, or other reason that would deem the school facility unsafe, please, follow the protocols below.

As per our annual practice for evacuation and student release, here are the procedures that you will need to follow:

1. NO PARKING IN THE SCHOOL COURTYARD. You must find parking away from the school.

2. Depending on the situation and any damage to the property, the students will assemble in the gym, in the courtyard, in the field behind the church, or the field between the gym and St. Mary’s Ukrainian Church on 14th Avenue. Based on an assessment of damage, a decision will be made as to the safest location and the area best suited for assembly.

3. Report to the Release Station as soon as you find the ASSEMBLY AREA. The children will already be grouped by grade level in our assembly area; DO NOT ATTEMPT TO GET YOUR CHILD directly. Runners will be assigned to do this for you.

4. You will be asked to show ID.

5. When it is your turn, your ID will be matched with our records, you will sign-out your child(ren), and a runner will be sent to retrieve your child(ren).

6. Wait at the Release Station until a runner brings your child/children to you.

7. Proceed immediately to the Exit Station and make sure you submit your Student Release Form (SRF) to the attendant at hand. School staff have been trained and share the responsibility of remaining with and caring for your children until your arrival. Emergency supplies, food rations, and equipment are on hand in case of an emergency.
