Mission Statement

We, the students, staff and parents of Merritt Bench Elementary school are committed to making our time here a positive experience by working and learning together with respect for ourselves and others, striving to do our best in all that we do.

A Few Reminders…

  • Please make sure that you call the SAFE Arrival when your child is going to be absent, 1-844-434-8117 or visit go.schoolmessenger.ca or download and use the schoolmessenger APP.
  • It is important that you update the school when your contact information changes.
  • Please call  prior to 2:00pm if you have a message for your child regarding after school pick-up.
  • As students are dismissed at the outside doors, parents please wait outside to avoid hallway congestion.
  • Please call the office if you would like to arrange a meeting with your child's teacher.
