The Ministry of Education has provided two additional Professional Development/Non-Instructional Days for 2016 in order to implement the new BC Education Plan . The approved dates are January 22nd and April 4th. School will not be in session on those dates.
Please find attached an invitation to the NorKam Trades Centre Open House for November 30th from 6:30 - 9:00 pm. Appetizers will be served. Anyone interested in having a look around is welcome. The students and staff will be on hand to answer questions and explain the programs.
The MyEdBC Parent Portal is now up and running. Here are some things you should know:
On Wednesday, October 28th, you will be receiving another email from the Kamloops/Thompson School District #73 that will provide the link to the portal with the log-in instructions and your new temporary parent password. Please take the time to activate this account - you will need to setup your own password and security question.
The MyEd Parent Portal only allows you to try your password 5 time before it disables your account. If your account becomes disabled, please call our office. Our secretary will take your name, email and child's name, and will have our tech department reset your password and send you an updated email as soon as possible.
This portal will allow you to access your child's marks from the teachers who are now using the new marking program. This marking program meets the BC Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. We have attached step-by-step instructions to log into the portal if you need them - please see the attached pdf file. To link into the portal, please select the grey coloured MyEdBC button at the top of this website.
This video link explains what information you will see in the parent portal. The information was made for another school from our district, however the explanation of the portal is helpful and shows you how to navigate the portal.
*** Please note: the Parent Portal will not open on a Mobile Device. It can only be opened through a Desktop computer or laptop.
