Parkview Elementary student to ERS

Good morning parents, guardians and students of ERS:

As many of you of heard by now, ERS will be welcoming (with open arms) 4 divisions from Parkview Elementary starting this Wednesday. In case your children are wondering which spaces our new students will be using, please assure them that we will discuss the changes on Monday morning at a school wide assembly. Classes at ERS will operate as they have been all school year.

Feel free to call me at 250-836-2831 if you have any questions regarding Parkview’s move to ERS.
