Is All About

We are honoured to live, learn, play and work on the unceded territories of the Skwxwú7mesh Nation and the shíshálh Nation.

Vision: We are a community engaged in lifelong learning and educational excellence.

Mission: We support and inspire each student to experience joy and fulfillment in realizing their potential as a knowledgeable, confident, and contributing citizen in the global community.

Affirmation: The Board of School District 46 affirms its commitment to Indigenous Peoples and Reconciliation by building relationships and deepening understanding of Indigenous history, worldviews, and ways of knowing.

Approximately 3,300 students are enrolled in nine elementary and four secondary schools and supported by 600 dedicated staff.

The Sunshine Coast of British Columbia is located 30 kilometres northwest of Vancouver and stretches 96 kilometres along the picturesque shores of Georgia Strait. Reached by a 40-minute ferry ride across Howe Sound from Horseshoe Bay, the Coast offers a wide range of recreational and educational activities for students and their families.

          Health & Safety

          Thank you for following our health & safety protocols.

          There are a number of measures we can all take to ensure we continue to protect those around us.

          Families are asked to monitor children daily for symptoms using the public health and Ministry of Education recommended and updated Daily Health Check* and not to send them to school if they are showing symptoms of illness. Anyone who is sick will not be allowed in school.

          Any student who has key symptoms of COVID-19 OR has travelled outside Canada in the last 14 days OR was identified as a close contact of a confirmed case or outbreak must stay home, contact their care provider, and self-isolate.

          If you have symptoms, please conduct a health assessment by contacting 8-1-1, or a primary care provider like a physician or nurse practitioner or the Respiratory Assessment Clinic by phone or text at 604-740-1252, or by email at coastrespclinic@gmail.com. They are open seven days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 

          Please encourage your child to continue with their efforts to help stop the spread of COVID-19 by:

          • Practicing physical distancing
          • Washing their hands often with soap and water, or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer (containing at least 60% alcohol)
          • Coughing and sneezing into a tissue or the bend of their arm
          • Wearing a mask when needed
          • Avoiding touching their face
          • Not sharing food
          • Most importantly, staying at home if they have symptoms

          *The Daily Health Check is for COVID-19 only. Please keep sick kids (cold or flu that is not COVID-19) home from school. Kids should still recover before coming back to school, just as they would pre-pandemic.

          SD46 Family Checklist: What can families do to ensure a safe and healthy in-school learning environment?

          BC Ministry of Education’s COVID-19 Back To School Factsheet

          Active Travel

          This school year due to COVID-19 and physical distancing recommendations, students are encouraged to walk or cycle to school.

          From September 28 to October 4th, Transportation Choices Sunshine Coast (TraC) will be organizing Active Transportation Week with fun school and community-based events that get people out of their cars and moving. Schools and families can participate by informally organizing walking school buses or bike trains, and kids can use sidewalk chalk to decorate their favourite routes to school. 

          The District of Sechelt has committed to extra road sweeping and maintenance to ensure that road shoulders and bike lanes are in good shape for students cycling to local schools. SD46 is also piloting a map with several schools that identifies the safest routes to school which will be available later in the fall following consultations with local parents. 

          Walking and cycling to school has the double bonus of promoting children’s health while reducing carbon emissions at the same time. For more information visit www.transporationchoice.ca or contact TraC at coasttrac@gmail.com.

          Student Registration

          SD46 Student Registration is a 2 step process:

          1. Complete the Online Student Registration Form.
          2. Contact the school to make an appointment to take supporting original documentation to your catchment school. 

          * Remember to first inform your current district/school of your transfer to our district. 

          **Please register at your ‘Catchment Area School’.  Use the School Finder to find what school serves your address.

          ***If you wish to attend a different school in the district other than your catchment school, please visit the cross boundary application page for more information and/ or contact your ‘Catchment Area School’ principal for guidance.

          Well-Being in Uncertain Times

          As we enter a new school year, during a time of uncertainty, a large part of our focus will be on the mental health and well-being, for students, for staff and for families in our SD46 community.  Inclusion Support Services (formally known as District Support Services) will help to support the mental health and well-being of the district though a trauma informed approach to support safety, care, connection, and relationship for all of those who are part of our learning communities. 

          Entrepreneurial and Innovative Thinking

          A learning standard throughout the grade levels has an aspect of the students being encouraged to use entrepreneurial and innovative thinking to solve problems.  Teacher resources/supplies that might be helpful are on the SD46 Engage ADST Design Applied Skill and Technology site. Junior Achievement of B.C. also has many programs whose purpose is to inspire, prepare and empower B.C. youth for their future.
