The Grizzly Gazette May 27 – 31


Dear Parents and Guardians,

I hope this message finds you well. As we approach the end of the school year, I would like to address an important safety matter regarding our school parking lot and roundabout area.

It has come to our attention that an increasing number of parents are entering the school parking lot and roundabout during drop-off and pick-up times. This practice significantly increases congestion and poses safety risks for our students.

To ensure the safety of all our children and to facilitate smoother traffic flow, we parents to quickly refrain from entering the school parking lot and roundabout. Instead, we encourage you to park on the side streets surrounding the school and walk your children to and from the school premises.

Here are a few key points to consider:

  1. Student Safety: The safety of our students is our top priority. The parking lot and roundabout are high-traffic areas, and reducing the number of vehicles in these zones minimizes the risk of accidents.
  2. Traffic Congestion: The increased volume of cars in the parking lot and roundabout creates significant traffic congestion, leading to delays and frustration for everyone. Parking on the side streets helps alleviate this congestion and ensures a smoother flow of traffic.
  3. Community Responsibility: By parking on the side streets, we set a positive example for our children and show respect for our school community. It demonstrates our collective commitment to making the school environment safer for everyone.

We understand that this may require a few extra minutes of your time, but the safety and well-being of our students are well worth the effort.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding in this matter. Let’s work together to keep our school a safe and welcoming place for all.


A reminder to parents of an important policy that helps ensure the health and comfort of our school community: our school is a designated scent-aware zone.

Many students, staff, and visitors suffer from allergies and sensitivities to fragrances. Exposure to scents, including perfumes, colognes, and scented lotions, can trigger allergic reactions and respiratory issues, which can significantly impact the well-being of those affected.

To maintain a healthy and safe environment for everyone, we kindly ask that you and your children refrain from wearing or bringing any scented products to school. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Perfumes and colognes
  • Scented lotions and creams
  • Scented hair products
  • Fragranced deodorants and body sprays
  • Strongly scented laundry detergents or fabric softeners

We understand that using scented products is a personal choice, but it is essential to consider the impact they can have on those around us. By adhering to our scent-aware policy, we can help prevent allergic reactions and create a more inclusive and comfortable environment for all members of our school community.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding in this matter. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the school office.




Don’t forget that this is the final week to submit donations for our Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser. Our goal is to raise $772, and we are excited to see our community come together to support the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Your generous contributions play a crucial role for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Every donation, no matter the size, makes a significant impact in the fight against heart disease and stroke.

As a fun incentive, if we reach our goal, our very own Mr. D’Angelo, Ms. Hannah, and Ms. Chahal have bravely volunteered to be duct-taped to the wall! This exciting event will be a memorable way to celebrate our collective effort and commitment to a great cause.

To donate, please go to

or send your contributions with your child by the end of this week. Let’s work together to reach our goal and make a difference in the lives of those affected by heart disease and stroke.

Hello Delta School District families,
Delta School District International Programs is placing students for September 2024 and are looking for caring families to host international students who have chosen Delta as their desired study abroad destination. They will arrive from all over the world and have a strong desire to be in Delta.
Delta School District International Programs provides you with access to a team of professionals that have been nominated for an international award recognizing excellence in International Programs for 5 years in a row. They assist you in all aspects of caring for your student, provide monthly activities for students to join, and are always willing to lend an ear and help out.
As of September 1st, 2024, the reimbursement for hosting will be increasing to $1,150 per month per student. Students from different nationalities can be hosted in one home, although they do require their own bedroom. The majority of students in the homestay program are from Germany, Japan, Spain, Italy, and Brazil. More that 20 different countries are currently represented in the homestay program.
Many of our international students are looking for a family connection and being a part of a family during their stay in Delta. Their study periods range from 3 months to half a school year, to a full school year, to multiple years.
We have two 3-week summer programs where host families welcome younger English learners into their home. It is a great way for students to see what school (and life) in Delta is like and for new homestay families to get a small sample of what hosting is like. Reimbursement for each 3-week program is $850 per student.
If you are interested in hosting, please reach out to If you are not able to host but know of a family who can, please send them our way. There are referral bonuses available for referring families.
