Welcome to Seaquam Secondary School

Dear students, parents and guardians,

We are excited to announce that the television show 'The Flash' has chosen Seaquam to film a scene for an upcoming episode of their television series. The production is occuring this week from the afternoon of Wednesday Sept. 20 to the morning of Friday Sept. 22, with the actual filming on Thursday Sept. 21.

This production will be using the school's Theatre and Music areas. These areas will be closed to students on Thursday. Though the majority of the school will operate as usual, some music and theater classes will be moved to different rooms on Wednesday and Thursday. These room changes will be communicated to students by their teachers. As well, the school's back parking lot will be used to park the production trailers and equipment. As a result, the back parking lot will be closed to staff and students on Sept. 21, and will be 'off limits' to students and athletes all day. Students are encouraged not to drive their cars to school that day, and must park offsite if they do have a car.

Seaquam will enjoy some direct benefits from this production beyond being able to say that our school was on television. In particular, some students will have an opportunity to see a real television production in action, and the school is receiving a financial contribution to its scholarship fund.

If any students or parents/guardians have questions or concerns, please contact Mr. Ben Scarr at 604-591-6166 or bscarr@deltasd.bc.ca

Thank you for your support and cooperation during this unique opportunity for our school.

SEAQUAM SECONDARY APP

Seaquam has a new app that is available for both IOS and Android devices.  Go to thier respective stores and search "Seaquam Secondary" and you should find it.  This new app has been developed by the agenda book company that we use.  This app has many great features: calendar, schedules (set manually by the student initially), news feed, push notifications from the district and school, school handbook, teacher channels etc.  Very worthwhile for students and parents to use.  Attached is more information.

Dropping off and Picking up Students at Seaquam

This is a reminder to parents about dropping off and picking up of your students.  Between 8am and 4pm picking up and dropping off of students in the school parking lots IS NOT PERMITTED.  This is a safety issue. If you need to drop off or pick up your student please do so on Lyon Rd or further away from the school.  When driving down or parking on Lyon Rd please do not do U Turns.  This is dangerous for other motorists as well as students crossing the road.  Also, please observe the speed limits in school zones and be watchful of students crossing at the crosswalk.
