Coyote’s Howl Feb 7 – 11

Dear Parents and Families,

I hope that you are enjoying your weekend. As always, I thank you for taking the time to read the Coyote’s Howl.

Kindergarten registration – February 14-20 (on-line only)

Kindergarten registration takes place mid-February each year. A child may be registered to attend Kindergarten in September if his or her fifth birthday occurs on or before December 31st of the current year.

Kindergarten registration for the 2022/2023 school year will be held from February 14-20, 2022. Please register ONLINE for your catchment area school. For verification of your catchment area school, please check the School Locator.

Instructions on how to register will be posted on the District website in early February.

Please have the following documents ready to upload with your child’s registration (all documents must be received for registration to be accepted):

1. Proof of birth date for the student (birth certificate or passport) (application will not be accepted until proof of birth date is received)

2. Proof of citizenship for both the parent and the student (Canadian birth certificate, citizenship card, passport, landed immigrant document, permanent resident card)

3. BC Services Card

4. Proof of Residency (Property Taxes – current receipt, purchase/rental agreement or rental receipt)

If a parent wishes for a child to attend a school other than their catchment area school, an online non-catchment application form must be completed. Non-catchment applications will be accepted online only commencing February 7, 2022 at 8:30 a.m. Applications received prior to March 4, 2022 will receive priority in their respective category. Approvals will be processed as soon as possible, but may be held until the second week of September, therefore, parents should register their child at their catchment area school the week of February 14-20, 2022 to ensure a placement. Schools will hold non-catchment forms until approved by the Assistant Superintendents’ Office.


A separate email was sent on Friday regarding dogs at school. If you missed it, a copy of the email is here below.

A reminder that we are asking families to please leave their dogs at home during school hours and especially during drop-off and pick-up times.

Although we know that the majority of dogs are friendly and kind, we have some students that suffer from phobias towards dogs. Unfortunately, we’ve even had incidences where dogs have been aggressive towards students. If you feel that you must bring your dog to school during drop-off and pick-up, please tie/leash your dog along the front fence. Please do not tie them up at the bike racks since many students travel through that area.

Dogs should never be past the fenced area at any time. We are finding that despite good intentions by dog owners, we are still finding droppings on our grounds. You would not believe how frequently I have to personally take care of droppings reported by students and staff. 

We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.



The Delta School District recently revealed our Vision for 2030. There are several statements within the vision that the district wants to focus on. Please take a few moments to let us know where you think we are as a school regarding these statements. The survey is short and should only take a few minutes.

The Rotary Club

As you are likely aware, the Rotary Club in Tsawwassen…over the years, they have undertaken many projects in the community that have benefited our students – including:

  • construction of the amphitheatre at South Delta Secondary School in partnership with the Delta School District
  • installation of the water park and musical gardens at Diefenbaker park
  • improvements at the Winskill Boys and Girls Club.

Rotary also provides service to youth in the form of grants, events and scholarships such as the Delta Youth Awards, annual provision of PAC Discretionary Funds and secondary and post-secondary scholarships.

Rotary is seeking input on the following

  • what is going well for the school district in serving youth
  • what is going well for youth in our community
  • why those successful organizations and programs work well

in addition:

  • challenges for the school district in supporting youth
  • challenges you believe youth are facing
  • what you believe is needed to resolve those challenges

The school district will be meeting with the Rotary Club on Tuesday. They would appreciate any feedback regarding the topics above. If you have any feedback please email me directly at
