Welcome Back to School!
Welcome to DCSS 2017/18 School Year
The first day of school at the South Peace Campus, September 7, will provide students an opportunity to get to know the staff while learning about all things related to the South Peace Campus. The day will begin two hours later than our regular start time. We will hold an assembly in the Unchagah Hall for all staff and students from 10:50 through to 12:00 noon. We will introduce new staff and share important information for all students that will surely help start the school year off! The assembly will be followed by an hour-long lunch. Students will report to their Homeroom classes for the afternoon where they will receive updated copies of their first semester timetables and learn about Code of Conduct and Safety related expectations for the South Peace Campus. We are exciting to embark upon a new school year. We ask all South Peace Campus students to attend the first day of school assembly! See you soon!
