Dear Parents and Students,
Please watch Dr. Henry’s message to teachers and staff as more children went back to classrooms today: https://youtu.be/Aieq1MWFHXA
PARENTS – please read! Minister Fleming along with BC Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils and la Fédération des parents francophones de la C.-B have written a letter to parents. Please the letter available in English, French and Chinese on our website at: www.gov.bc.ca/SafeSchools
Friday, May 15, Premier John Horgan, Dr. Bonnie Henry, and Education Minister Rob Flemming announced that school will restart on Monday, June 1st. They also stated that return to school is voluntary for families. It is important to understand that school this June will not be the same as school prior to spring break. We assume September will look different again as the Premier stated they hope for a full start up to school in September. Our first priority in June schooling will be student and staff safety. Our second priority in June will be to allow students to experience a taste of the routines of schooling that serve them well, to allow students face-to-face connection with some of their classmates and staff, and to provide richer educational experiences than we are able to do in a virtual platform.
Please submit your Parent Commitment Return to School Forms.
The Senior Leadership Team has emailed families a return to school Health and Safety Plan that was approved by the Ministry of Education. Please review this plan carefully for our June 1 return to school.
