Getting to School by Bus
Students travel to school in a variety ways including walking, taking school buses, transit, or being driven by parents/guardians. Students’ safety is important, no matter how they get to school and home again.
There will be school bus pickup locations in three cities.
School Bus Pick-Up and Drop-Off Cities
Route 1: South Burnaby –> Burnaby Library –> North Burnaby —> HongDe School
Route 2: Richmond (Lansdowne Centre) –> Vancouver West –> HongDe School
*Route subject to change as per school’s discretion.
Parking & Drop-Off
Ensuring our students get to school safely is everyone’s responsibility. Please be mindful of crosswalks, parking rules and speed limits when you are near our school especially during the morning drop-off and afternoon dismissal times.
Off-site activities are learning experiences that occur away from the school site. These activities enable students to participate in quality learning experiences that are supporting educational outcomes. All off-site activities are conducted under the school regulations.
We’re proud of our school and like to share our spirit.
School wide virtue assemblies are held monthly. All classes have the opportunity to showcase pieces that focus on the virtue of the month.
Each week the students look forward to going to the library for a read aloud or mini-lesson, book checkout, and center activities. Online Library Resources are available to students.
Hot Lunch Program
We will be providing a daily hot lunch schedule when school commences in September. You will only need to provide your child with a healthy morning snack each day.
Health & Wellness Resources
We believe in a whole-school approach to health and wellness, focused on: healthy eating; healthy relationships; physical activity; and positive mental health.
Illness & Medical
In the event of an accident, the supervising teacher will take immediate actions as necessary and inform the principal as soon as possible. The principal will take charge and inform the parent/guardian and receive instructions as soon as possible.
Parents or guardians requesting school assistance with their child’s medical needs must speak to the principal and are required to complete special forms.
We recognize that the mental health of everyone has been impacted during this difficult time. It is critical now more than ever that our students have the tools to reconnect with themselves.
