Leave of Absence Announcement

Dear Families,

I hope everyone had a cozy and warm weekend- fall disappeared rather quickly and the snow has created a beautiful winter wonderland!

My apologies for sending an email on a Sunday, but I need to inform you that effective tomorrow, November 7, 2022, I will be taking a leave of absence.  I'm not sure how long I will be away, however, in my absence, Mr. Chris Aylesworth will be acting Principal.  He is a retired CBE principal - he was principal of Jennie Elliott School in Lakeview, and at Sunalta School.  He retired three years ago and has stayed busy taking on acting leadership roles to support administrators on leave. 

I have spoken with Mr. Aylesworth and shared with him the information he needs to start at JJ tomorrow.  He is looking forward to meeting the wonderful students, staff, and parents.  I know everyone will make him feel very welcomed.

I promise that I will return when I am able to.  Please let your children know that I will be okay and will miss everyone very much.  I am surrounded by a lot of love and support while I step away for a bit.

In my absence, you can contact Mr. Aylesworth by email Mme. Lina, our Assistant Principal, will work alongside Mr. Aylesworth.  Mrs. Paul and Ms. Galvin, our Learning Leaders, will continue to support the administrative team. 

Thank you for being a wonderfully supportive parent community.  I am so lucky to be part of such a great school and I look forward to returning when I can. 


Mrs. Kivi​
