Dear students,
SCIDES is located in Merritt,B.C.  If you've been following recent news, you will know that our town has been evacuated due to floods and unsafe water.  SCIDES teachers have had to leave their homes.  If our service to you is not as usual right now, please understand.   We also recognize that some of you may be dealing with trying situations due to this weather too and hope you are all able to stay safe and well.  We hope this situation will be resolved soon.  Thank you. 
Mrs. K. Goetz, Principal
In an effort to improve equity in our school, SCIDES staff are committed to acknowledging the traditional territories of where we are located in the Nicola Valley.  We encourage everyone to also acknowledge the territories where they live.

This month, let us all take time to remember the sacrifices that were - and are being - made for all of us.
