Cortes Island School staff and students will return to school for full-time classes on Monday, Sept.14 and orientation will be on Sept. 10 and 11.

What will school look like?

There are a lot of questions as to what school will look like this fall.  Cortes Island school is figuring out how to provide required schooling and ensure there are safe options for those with additional health concerns or that have caregivers that are vulnerable or work with vulnerable populations. Cortes Islanders with children planning to enrol at the school for in class instruction, those planning to be enrolled but more homebound, and those planning to homeschool or pursue primarily computer based learning are being asked to let the school district know by Tuesday September 1 their enrolment plans. Later today (Sept. 1) there should be further detailed communications from Cortes Island School.

Will your child return to school?

Principal Brent Wilken welcomes parents and students back to school on behalf of Cortes Island School and invites those with enrolment questions to reach out directly at

If you haven’t received anything from the school district make sure you reach out to your local school so they know your intentions to enrol your child. If you are a Cortes parent and have concerns or questions, you can reach Principal Brent Wilkin on his email or by calling the school directly at 250-935-6313.
