October 22nd, 2020


To All Students & Families – Our office team has been busy this week emailing temporary, computer generated passwords to any student who has not accessed their My Education BC student account. Next week, students will need to login to MyEd and view their “current schedule” to see quarter 2 through 4 schedule changes.  As we were making necessary adjustments during the past two months, it is likely that a student’s quarter 2, 3 and 4 schedule has changed.  We will NOT be printing timetables.  The only way for students to view this is through MyEd.  Please see an instructional video here. NOTE: Students login to MyEd using their student number not their email address.  When setting up your account, please use a computer first, then you can sign in on your phone once your account is set up.
