Pre-registration begins for Stave Falls school

Information collected will help board determine if the school should reopen

The Mission School District is gathering information on the number of potential students interested in attending Stave Falls Elementary School, if the school were to be reopened.

Parents in the Stave Falls area have been trying to get the local school reopened for several years.

The school, which has been closed since 2008, currently sits empty and unused.

After many meetings and discussions, it was decided that a pre-registration would be held to allow the district to get needed information on any interest in attending the school, if it was reopened.

According to the district’s website, “The data collected with the preliminary registration process will assist the board as it deliberates on the future of the closed school.”

It goes on to say “All children eligible for public education in B.C. in Kindergarten to Grade 7 may submit a preliminary registration form for the Stave Falls Elementary School for the 2018/2019, 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 school years.”

Completed forms can be submitted electronically from the website or returned to the School District office.

The form will be available to the public for submission from Nov. 20, 2017 to Dec. 15, 2017.

Anyone with questions should direct them to Angus Wilson, superintendent of schools, at
