April 20th Professional Day
As you are aware,
your child’s school has a scheduled professional day on Friday, April 20th. Unfortunately, this coincides with “420”
observances where cannabis use and culture is celebrated at events across the
Lower Mainland. This coincidence was
not intended to promote student attendance at these events. The North Vancouver
School District (NVSD) does not condone or support the use of cannabis.
As part of the
ongoing education of substance use, we encourage conversations to occur at home
regarding the use of cannabis and other substances. Here are useful links that
can be used to begin the conversation about cannabis and other substances.
The NVSD is fortunate to have
exceptional students who are excellent role models for their school communities.
We also realize that attendance at community events is a personal and/or family
decision but we wanted to make you aware of the possibility. Thank you for your continued understanding
and support of your child’s school and the school district.
