Please see below information sent to the BVE School Community on June 10/2021
Good afternoon BVE Parents/Guardians,
Today we were advised that a member of the Begbie View Elementary School community tested positive for Covid. IH conducted contract tracing and provided the attached information for families.
We do have two classes (a grade 4 and grade 3-4 class) as well as a number of staff who have been asked by Interior Health to self-isolate into next week. Although the case count in Revelstoke has been very low, and even at zero in the past number of weeks, this is not an unexpected situation. Thanks for your ongoing support of your own children and by extension, all of our children.
As we come to the end of a most unusual school year, I hope that you and your family are well and have access to the supports you may need.
Please do not hesitate to call if there is anything I can do in that regard.

Jeff Nicholson Scholarship
The Revelstoke Board of Education is honouring Jeff Nicholson for his lifetime of service as a teacher and a trustee by creating a scholarship in his name for a grade 12 student pursing a post-secondary education in the Life Sciences. Trustees have made an initial contribution of $5,000 to the scholarship to be administered by the Revelstoke Community Foundation. Trustees are hoping to raise a minimum of $10,000 in order for the scholarship to carry on in perpetuity.

Did you know that School District #19 runs a breakfast program in each of our schools, every school day?
Our breakfast programs are intended to provide nutritious foods to any student that need it. Foods are ready shortly after 8 AM until the first bell. The program is free and anyone is welcome, anytime. There are many reasons why students may miss breakfast, from missed alarms, to picky eaters, to financial issues. We want to give students the best chance possible for learning and growth, including starting their day off with a full belly. This program also provides a safe space for friendships to flourish. Students can come every day or just occasionally – it is up to them!
Our breakfast programs are managed by paid coordinators, but we depend on a large number of volunteers to help prepare and serve breakfast. There is always a need for more volunteers, whether they are parents or community members. The program is mostly funded by grants and donations, both local and provincial. Donations are always welcome and can contribute to increased nutritional quality of our breakfasts.
Questions, comments, donations and volunteers be addressed to our District Coordinator at email@example.com. Watch out for our survey in coming months for your chance to provide feedback to your school program.
School District #19 (Revelstoke) is located on the Trans Canada Highway adjacent to the Okanagan and Kootenay regions. We are a vibrant, historic mountain community of 6,719 (from Census 2016). Our School District serves approximately 1020 students in three elementary schools and one high school, all within the City of Revelstoke.
