Report Cards:
 
Some Report Cards are beginning to be issued on the MyEd portal today. Your child's teacher will let you know when their reports are being issued as they are not all being issued at the same time. Sea to Sky School District Report Card information can be found here
 
All new parents will receive an email from the district on how to access the MyEd report card portal – Kindergarten and new SHE students. Whenever a report card is published there will be an outgoing message that will remind parents that at some point in the past (could have been last year) they should have received login information for MyEducation BC. If not, please send a message to: myedsupport@sd48.bc.ca.
 
It is now possible to collect report cards with a mobile device. Here is a video showing how: https://youtu.be/Bux6jdcVhbs. 
 
If internet access is an issue, please let our office know and we can provide Report Cards in a paper format.
