Dear ESR Families,

It has been a wonderful, busy year of learning at our school! I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to work with the families, staff, and students here at ESR and grateful to have a job that I love to come to each day. I thank all of you for your support and dedication to your children and to our school, and look forward to welcoming you back in September. To those students leaving for middle school or moving away, I wish you all the best and hope you continue to enjoy your educational journey. 

I want to wish all of you a safe and happy summer! See you soon!

Please note * Miss Amy has posted the school supply lists in the parent tab, which can be printed off for your convenience.

Bus Registration for 2019 - 2020

Families are advised that Bus Registration for the 2019-20 school year will run from May 1st through June 30th, 2019. To ride a district school bus, all new and returning riders must complete a registration form each year.

Registration may be initiated by using our on-line bus registration form.  This can be accessed at and clicking on the 'Transportation' link on the Home page.

The Transportation office will be closed between July 1st and August 22nd, 2019.  However, on-line registrations may still be submitted throughout July and August.

Please remember each week to scroll down and see the PAC news which is updated every week as new items are added. There you will find information on hot lunch, silent auction, and more! Each week our hard-working PAC sends updates about upcoming events, fundraisers, and monthly meeting dates.

Please also remember that you can subscribe to our school calendar which can help keep you up to date on events and activities. You can find the calendar on the main page of our school website. 

From the Office

Changes in bus drop off - If your son/daughter is to be dropped off at a different location, you must notify the bus garage, not the school office. Drivers can only operate on the information they have been provided with by our transportation office. 

 Early Pickup  If you are coming to the school before usual dismissal, please park and  come into the office. Miss Amy will page your son/daughter. It is unnecessary to call to let your children know you are in the parking lot - they will see you as you circle 'the loop' and will meet you. 

School Cash Online. We are not accepting cash/cheques in the office. If you need help signing on to the cash online system, please stop by the office. 

Absences. If your son/daughter will be away, please call and let Miss Amy know 604-826-2834

Afternoon Pickup Please arrange play dates and pickup location with your child before school. End of day is a very busy time in the office - it may not be possible to get pickup messages to all students, so please make sure your child knows in advance where to meet you at the end of the day.

PAC News

We are very grateful for our dedicated PAC here at ESR for all the hard work they do to benefit students. There are many ways you can become involved. If you are able to assist the PAC in any way - hot lunch, fundraising, etc., please contact them via email at   If you have questions regarding any fundraisers, events, etc. that are sponsored by PAC please email them directly for a quicker response.

Thank you to those parents helping with hot lunch! We couldn't have hot lunches without volunteers, and we appreciate everyone who comes to help.
