Each of Burnaby’s eight secondary schools offer programs that give students the opportunity to excel in a specific area of interest while fulfilling academic requirements. Learning options include Programs of Choice in technology, sports, trades, career training and educational enrichment, such as French Immersion, Advanced Placement courses and AP Capstone.

As you are aware, all Burnaby schools are closed for instruction today due to the weather. We are re-posting the following information from the Burnaby School District regarding school closures:
All schools will remain open, unless there is heavy snowfall, damage or other circumstances – such as a power outage – that make it impossible to open for instruction. The District will do its best to communicate school or district-wide closures on our website by 6:30 am. However, please keep in mind that there may be situations where this is not possible – again, such as a power outage.
Another way to learn about school closures is through local news stations (online, radio and TV), some of which are:
CBC AM 690 radio Global TV
News AM 1130 radio CBC TV
CKNW AM 980 radio CityNews
Fairchild AM 1470 radio CTV BC
Student safety is a responsibility we share with families. Please walk your child to the door of the school if you are unsure whether or not the school is open. If for any reason you feel that your student cannot travel safely then please – as you normally would – notify the school that your child will be absent.
If weather conditions deteriorate throughout the day and create a concern for the safety of students returning home, a decision may be made to dismiss students early. This will be communicated to parents in the best way possible through the schools’ normal communications channels.
Have you ever thought about how nice it would be if your children wear Marlborough LOGO t-shirts and feel being in a big family? Have you been tired of looking for pink or orange color t-shirts every year?
We are excited to bring T-shirt Fundraiser to Marlborough school. You can order online via Munchalunch.com website from now on. There are navy blue, orange and pink color short sleeves t-shirts and navy blue cap for your selections.
Burnaby Schools offers a variety of programs to support student success, including elementary language programs. For families interested in learning more about Early French Immersion (Kindergarten or Grade 1), Late French Immersion (Grade 6 to 7) or the Mandarin Language Arts Program (Kindergarten to Grade 7) please see attached flyer for more information about the upcoming parent information evenings.

Wishing you and your families and relaxing and magical holiday season!
