Welcome Back to School Message

Category: District

We wish all Delta students, families, and staff a wonderful school year ahead.

Hopefully, you’ve all had an opportunity to rest, relax, recharge, and spend time with family and friends over the summer. We are excited to welcome students back to school next Tuesday (September 5) to continue our mission of inspiring and nurturing thriving, future-ready learners.

Our Vision for 2030 is to aspire to be an Innovative, Inclusive Community Where All Learners Belong and Everyone Soars. The wellbeing of students and staff in our K-12 education system is our highest priority. By promoting the understanding of others and respect for all, and by creating welcoming and inclusive learning environments that are free from discrimination and harassment, we strive to create a sense of belonging and safety for every student and adult that enters any Delta school. This foundation will enable students to explore their personal strengths and interests, and engage in their best learning.

We will also continue our focus on ensuring learning success and graduation for all students, creating powerful and inspiring learning environments, providing strong foundations in literacy and numeracy, building and maintaining an engaged, empowered and healthy workforce, and ensuring strong governance and stewardship of district and school resources. These strategic priorities will help ensure we remain on track to achieve our Vision for 2030.

Once again, we welcome back all those who are returning – and a special welcome to those who are joining us as new students, parents, and staff.

We look forward to another exciting and successful year ahead!

Val Windsor, Chair, Delta Board of Education and Doug Sheppard, Superintendent of Schools
