Message from SHE Admin
Dear Signal Hill Families,

At Signal Hill, we value our community relationships as it strengthens the connection our students and staff have with the community outside our school walls. We were fortunate this week to have visiting chefs connect with some of our students to cook up some delicious delights allowing student to tap into their creative side with some hands-on learning. Chef Felix and Chef Maggie joined us from the Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Center to cook a cedar plank salmon and potato salad to gift to our PAC executive for all the support they provide our school. We also had Chef Randy from Mile One cook with our student to create a steak taco on brioche topped with a fresh salsa.

June 21 is National Indigenous Peoples' Day. Signal Hill will joining PSS, MPCS, SCCS, BWE and QCS for an 11:00 AM  Zoom assembly. This assembly will be featured in our next Circular.   

June 22 is our Grade 7 Celebration of Learning. Grade 7 families,  please check your email, the Signal Hill Website or ask your child for the letter we sent home today for details. 

If your children are returning to Signal Hill for the 2021-22 school year please do not buy school supplies. We are asking that parents pay $40 through our KEV system in the fall as we are using an abundance of caution and purchasing the school supplies for all students. 

Our lost and found continues to be out on display for families to claim what has been lost. This will be located outside the front entrance of the school. Please respect physical distancing if you encounter more than one family.

New App Simplifies Students‘ Daily Health Check

Thanks to a new app, it's easier than ever for your students or their parents to complete their daily health check each morning.

Developed in partnership with Public Health and the BC Centre for Disease Control, and a group of students, the K-12 daily health check website and mobile app help students and families make the best decisions on whether to attend school, stay home, or take other measures. Questions and answers are easy to understand and are based on current health guidelines. All content is written with the K-12 age group in mind.

As indicated in the Provincial COVID-19 Health Safety Guidelines for K-12 Settings, parents and caregivers should assess their children daily for illness before sending them to school. Please share the information about the new K-12 Health Check App with your students and families to make this process easier.

The final hot lunch session of this year is active now.
We could really use a couple more volunteers to help with delivering the food each week!
There is not a large "ahead of time" commitment.  We check in on Monday or Tuesday of each week to see who is available and go from there. 
It only takes approximately an hour of time on a Wednesday or Thursday (depending on the menu and your availability it could be less or a little bit more - whatever works!)  and by helping you can earn credits towards your child's hot lunch account. 
Please send an email to [email protected] if you would like more information or are able to spare some time. The only requirements are that you have a criminal record check at the office and that you are ok to wear a mask for the duration.
If you haven't ordered yet but would like to:
  1. To order online:
    1. Go to to register.
    2. On the home page, search for our school, create a new account, and enter the school access code which is currently SHE2020
    3. Add students by name and class
    4. Place your orders for the current session.
    5. All orders are due by Thursday of the week before the menu item is delivered.  Order all at once for best efficiency.  You can make changes online up to midnight the Thursday before.
  2. To order by paper:
    1. Contact [email protected] for an emailed order form or phone the office for a printed one.

Mental Health: The Importance of Staying Connected with Your Community.

Feelings of sadness or low energy levels sometimes causes people to lose a connection to things that they love and enjoy.

So, what do you do in this situation? Reach out to someone that you trust and let them know that you are struggling. You will be surprised by how much people are willing to lend a helping hand to you.
