Welcome Back To School


The staff at Prospect Lake are busy preparing for a wonderful year of learning.  Our custodial staff has everything shiny and clean for our start up.  We are excited to welcome our students and families to a new school year.  A warm welcome to our new families who are joining us and to our Kindergarten families.  Here are some reminders for the first few days of school and some updates.


As many of you know, the construction in front of the school on Prospect Lake Road and West Saanich Road is still in progress.  The lower parking lot is also still under construction.  With road closures, we will continue to use alternative transportation for students.  There is no access or parking at the school for drop off and pick ups until further notice. 

  1. Shuttle:- to/from Prospect Lake Community Center (no registration needed):
  • AM shuttle begins at 8:10 until 8:50 or until all students are transported
  • PM shuttle begins at 2:48 until 3:10 or until all students are transported.  
  1. School bus:- *** you must be registered to ride the bus***  If you have not registered to use the school bus service click following link  -   Transportation | Saanich Schools.  Please communicate with your child which afternoon bus they will be riding # 21 or #16

 Note:  On Tuesday Sept 6 shuttle will run from 10:15 until 10:35 or until all students are transported. Buses will be running to accommodate the early dismissal.

  1. Walk/bike:- accompanied by an adult (with caution as there is active construction)



Students will return to last year’s classroom for Sept 6 and 7.  New students will be placed in an age appropriate classroom.  

We hope to have students move to their 2022/23 classrooms by Thursday Sept 8.  Staff will finalize attendance, new enrollments and class placements prior to placing students into new classes.  Class placement has been determined in a very careful and thoughtful manner.   We appreciate your understanding and patience.  We will make every effort to have students in their new classes as soon as possible.

  • Returning students:  Please meet at last year's classroom entry location at 8:35 bell
