BC School Fruit and Vegetable Nutritional Program
The BCSFVNP is supported by the Province of BC and the Provincial Health Services Authority. It is administered through BCAITC, a non-profit organization dedicated to “Working to bring BC’s agriculture to our students.” The Foundation works with local growers and distributors to bring fresh BC products to students.
Once a month students receive fresh servings of fruit or vegetables at school. Some of the benefits are listed below.
Inclement Weather – School Closures
In the event of a heavy snow, ice or extreme temperatures, the decision on schools remaining open or needing to be closed, because of extreme weather, occurs before 6:30 a.m. so that families can plan and make alternate arrangements. Any district-wide or partial-district closure will be decided and communicated by 6:30 a.m. via the School District 43 website www.sd43.bc.ca and CKNW AM 980 radio, CKWX 1130 radio and CBC (690) radio.
The district website posting is official - there is no need to call the school or the Board Office after viewing.
