At Richmond Jewish Day School, we consider it a privilege to serve you and your children in preparing them for a successful future. This Parent-Student Handbook is intended to help you understand the underlying principles and expectations of the Board, Principal, and staff. Our qualified and experienced teachers for the BC Curriculum and Judaic Studies will work collaboratively to provide a high-quality learning experience that will be consistent throughout the school. As in all communities, certain guidelines are necessary to ensure our school functions effectively and safely.
We believe communication is key to building a strong school community, and this Parent & Student Handbook will serve to provide expectations and policies in guiding us as we make this learning journey together. The Handbook has been carefully designed to help our families navigate the expectations of Richmond Jewish Day School in keeping with our inclusive philosophy. Please keep this booklet handy for future reference. Your cooperation will certainly help us in fostering a safe, caring, and engaging school environment for our students.
On behalf of all the staff, we are excited to welcome you to the 2023-2024 academic year at Richmond Jewish Day School. As in previous years, we will continue to focus on the development of student knowledge, skill, creativity, compassion, and confidence! Together we will intend to provide the best school environment for your child, in every area of their learning, growth and development!
