Grad Packs

Starting April 7th, Grad Packs will be on sale for $155. You will receive your yearbook, prom ticket and have your grad fees paid. #FLIGHT15
If you only wish to purchase one or two of the grad items the cost break down is $50 for the grad fee, $55 for the prom ticket and $50 for the yearbook. As we get closer to each event the cost will rise, so pay your fees early to ensure the best price.
They can be purchased at the Kingfisher Korner Store.

Gender Neutral Bathroom

Hello Kingfisher community;
Sackville High has established a Gender Neutral Washroom space on our third floor. This washroom space is available for anyone regardless of their sex (male or female) or gender (how they want to see the world and how they want the world to see them).

If students choose to use this washroom it is to be used responsibly. This means students are expected to go into a stall and close the door, do what they need to do in a washroom, then use the sinks and mirrors as needed, then leave the washroom.

According to the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission and HRSB Policy everyone deserves the right to feel comfortable and safe in schools. This washroom space goes a long way in making this happen.

If you have any questions they can be addressed to Maya Williams our Youth Health Centre Co-ordinator, Jennifer Welcher, one of our Social Studies Teachers and GSA Co-ordinator, and/or school administration.

Thank you for making our school a wonderful place to be.
