    by Jennifer Lincoln - Tuesday, 3 March 2015, 3:51 PM

    Click on the link at the top right of this message to print a planned absence form. Planned absence forms are for absences of two or more school days.

    Valleyview Secondary School believes that regular attendance at school is a vital key for academic success.  However, school sponsored activities and family circumstances may require a student to be absent from class.  The purpose of this form is to ensure that such absences will create as little interruption as possible to a student’s school progress.It is the student’s responsibility to catch up on missed work. 

    The students is to take the form to his/her teachers and have them fill in the homework for each class. The bottom portion of the form must be signed by a parent and handed in to the office.

The schedule for our student-athletes has each of them enrolled in 2 blocks of hockey academy (1 per semester) throughout the school year and receive on-ice instruction an average of 2.5 times per week (60 minutes each). Students are also scheduled into dry-land training/programs and classroom instruction following the Hockey Canada curriculum. Under the leadership of Head Coach George Cochrane, our academy is very fortunate to also have the following individuals as part of our support coaching staff: Associate Coach Don Hay- Kamloops Blazers, Dan De Palma- Kamloops Blazers goaltending coach, Tyler Love- World Goaltending, Kyle Allen- KMHA, Scott Ferguson- Edmonton Oilers, Chris Murray- Montreal Canadiens, Jan Ludvig- New Jersey Devils, Murray Baron- St. Louis Blues, Nina Hrycewich- power skating instructor, Greg Kozoris- Acceleration Fitness/Fitness consultant, Colin Robinson- Kamloops Blazers athletic therapist and Peter Soberlak (Sports Psychologist-TRU and the Kamloops Blazers).
