Daily Notices - Tuesday February 5th 2019

  • There have been issues with smoking/vaping in our school building and on our school grounds by members of our Palmer community.  We wanted to remind students of the City of Richmond bylaw whereby a person must not smoke in a public park or school ground.  We want students to be aware that the enforcement of this bylaw may include the issuance of violation tickets by the Richmond RCMP and these come with monetary fines. Please make smart choices and do not put yourselves in a position where this could apply to you!
