Uniform Reminders

Our middle school teachers will be the first to admit that we haven’t been very good at keeping on top of students with regards to proper uniform. We’d like to make a more concerted effort in this area moving forward and appreciate your support in helping to ensure your child comes to school in proper uniform or remembers to bring it with them (e.g. PE days).

If your child receives a uniform infraction, you will be emailed a scanned copy of the notice. You are not required to respond in any way; we just want to make sure you are aware. We will keep track of the number of infractions here at school.

Depending on the number of infractions, the consequences are as follows:

1st Infraction: Parent/guardian notified

2nd Infraction: Parent/guardian notified; student issued an appropriate consequence

3rd Infraction: Student phones parent to inform them; student issued an in-school consequence

4th Infraction: Student phones parent to inform them; student issued an in-school consequence

5th Infraction: Student will receive an in-school suspension from school

Parents in Prayer

For the school year a parent from the Port Coquitlam campus has organized a once a month prayer time for parents/family members of Hope Lutheran Christian School.

The final meeting for the school year will be Tuesday, June 4, from 8:55 – 9:30 am. We will pray for our children, our families, the Staff and Teachers at Hope and our Community of Port Coquitlam.
