Cancellation – Kitwanga & Gitanyow Bus Runs #20 and #23 – January 19, 2017


For the information of CMSD82 parents and guardians in the Hazelton and Kitwanga areas.

Please note that the Kitwanga and Gitanyow Bus Runs #20 and #23 were cancelled this morning, January 19 due to poor road conditions. Bus drivers attempted to do the runs, however, they had to turn back due to the road conditions.  Schools will remain open for students to attend.  District Staff will continue to monitor the situation throughout the rest of this week.

Parents/guardians should contact their School Principal should they have any further questions.

Hazelton Secondary Parent Advisory Council

Every school has a PAC, a Parent Advisory Council, where you as a parent, can have your voice heard regarding the education of your children.
It is no different at Hazelton Secondary school: we also have a PAC.

It is worth everybody’s while to attend PAC meetings, to stay informed about school matters, upcoming need for help from parents or discussions about concerns and dreams for our school.
Because a school is not just a building where we learn math, English, Gitxsan or socials.
It’s a place where we learn about life, about friendship, about working and playing together, about our strengths and weaknesses and how to overcome adversity.
It’s a place where we grow from children into adults.

Please take note of our new PAC Members:

Chair: Helene Paranich
Vice Chair: Arveen Vij
Treasurer: Andrea Vickers
Secretary: Maurice Yee

And make some time in your schedule to attend the next PAC meeting, which is scheduled for January 17th at 5:30 pm.
We hope to see you there!

Christmas Break

Even though Christmas Season is “supposed” to be filled with happiness and joy, it’s not always the case in real life. Some people have a really hard time during the Christmas holidays.
Maybe because they’re mourning or longing for a loved one. Maybe because they’re sad, or they feel alone.
Maybe because they don’t feel safe or something happened in their life they have a hard time with.

If you, or someone you know, has these feelings and you, or they, would like to talk to someone or need help, please consider these websites and phone numbers.

And remember: if you are in immediate danger, call 911.
