Families

The Annapolis Valley Regional School Board believes in "Working Together for Students". Our Board members and staff are committed to working with parents, guardians and school community members to provide a positive, safe and healthy school environment that supports student success.

 

To help families take an active role in education, information below answers many frequently asked questions. We also encourage families to take part in events at school, to communicate with school staff about your child’s learning, and to get involved in your school’s Parent/Guardian support group (School Advisory Council, Home and School Association, etc.).

 

We welcome and value your input. If you have other questions or need more information, please contact your child’s school, the AVRSB Regional Office (902-538-4600, toll-free 1-800-850-3887), or your Board Member.

Safety is always our first priority. The decision to cancel or change bus transportation and/or school schedules is taken very seriously, and we appreciate that changes like these have an impact on families.

 

To help keep you informed, there are several ways you can receive notices about cancellations or schedule changes due to road or weather conditions, or other unforseen circumstances.
