Our PowerSchool messaging system was updated during summer 2018, which reset all parent/guardian contact preferences. This reset means parents/guardians will receive messages from your school and occasionally from AVRCE (including school cancellation notices) by email, text and phone if you have contact information on file with your school. Click here for details and to learn how to update your contact preferences. 

It's important to check your school bus information before the new school year starts in September. It's easy and quick to check online with BusPlanner Web Parent Portal. You can also contact our Transportation staff throughout the summer if you have questions or a change of address.

July 23, 2018: Lesley MacDonald, CHRP, has been named Director of Human Resources for the the Annapolis Valley Regional Centre for Education. MacDonald brings a wealth of experience to this role, and a commitment to the AVRCE vision of 'working together for students.' She will begin as Director of Human Resources on August 1, 2018. 

April 17, 2018: There will be no change to the West Kings District High School start time in September 2018. Feeder schools may see minor schedule changes to reduce time students spend on the bus.

The Annapolis Valley Regional Centre for Education’s website and Twitter account have changed to reflect our new name. On June 4, 2018 our website became www.avrce.ca and our Twitter account was renamed to @AVRCE_NS.

We know it takes time to get used to change—we will redirect www.avrsb.ca to our new www.avrce.ca website address for the next year. Don’t forget to update your bookmarks!
