Hello everyone.

A very special thanks to Able Seaman Jessica Cryderman for her presentation at our Remembrance Day assembly last Friday. We all really appreciated her time with us. We’d also like to thank Ren Louie for his drumming and chant of respect and remembrance while the divisional reps placed their wreaths.

Thanks to Duey and Ms. Prette for the percussion number and dance number. All-in-all a good assembly.

Now is a really good time to be checking in with your child re: homework assignments. As we head into the darker months we also head into new territory with respect to workload issues. If you are unsure as to where your child currently stands, please do  not hesitate to check in with their teacher.

Please see the attached form for Spencer Spirit Wear: a great idea for Christmas!

Parents can now do school consents at the following link.

https://consent.sd62.bc.ca/apps/OnlineConsent

ONLINE CONSENT PORTAL – Phase 1 The parent page – This is where parents login to provide and/or review consents for their children.
• When using the system for the first time, parents must use the front page to request an access number (which acts as their password).
• Parents use the verification number to gain entry. From there, they can provide consent to the six activities. If your student is not listed, please make sure that the email address used is the same email address your students school has on file.
• This is meant to be a one-stop shop for parents to provide consent.
The URL for this page is https://consent.sd62.bc.ca Here are the consents that are available as this time to be collected online:
1. Freshgrade (online tool)
2. GAFE (Student Access to Google Apps for Education)
3. Media Release
4. KEV School Cash Online
5. Short (Walking) Field Trips
6. Internet Access – Available
When do the Consents expire?
• Some consents (namely GAFE, KEV, and FreshGrade) expire once a student leaves the district and/or graduates
• Some consents last one school year
• The system tracks the expiry of these consents. To renew a consent year to year (for Internet access, as an example) a parent simply reconnects to the system next school year.  The system will note that the consent has expired and will give parents an opportunity to renew their permission.
How do you sign up for these consents?
Step 1 – Add registration@sd62.bc.ca to your email contacts
Step 2 – Parents go to the link https://consent.sd62.bc.ca
Step 3 – Add your email address
Step 4 – Go to junk folder as the verification number may be sent to this folder. Make note of your SD62 email verification number
Step 5 – Add the verification number
Step 6 – Click on the Consents and choose, “I do give consent”.

School Fees are now available to pay online!

We have now loaded fees into our system and you are able to manage your students accounts from the convenience of your home.

Once you have done the student consent at https://consent.sd62.bc.ca and checked off the School Cash Online Consent you will be able to then set up your account.

Please allow 24 hours for the consent to be updated into our system before you proceed to setting up your account.

It is important to note that you do not have to pay your fees online, you can still pay by cash or cheque.  Doing the consent will allow us to track your students account and we can still process cash/cheque payments to their account.

Thank you for your patience as we implement this new system.  Please let us know if you are experiencing any difficulties.
