May 8 message to parents, students & staff from Superintendent Jordan Tinney

Please see this important video message for parents, students and staff as we begin to chart a path to slowly re-introduce face-to-face instruction in our schools as the province lifts COVID-19 restrictions.

 The model that the province is announcing includes:

• A part-time return to face to face instruction for children in Grades K-5;

• Part-time face to face instruction for students in Grades 6-12; and

• The continuation of remote and online learning.

"The guidelines we are hearing suggest that balance will be the equivalent of alternating days for students in K-5 and one day a week for students in grades 6-12," says Surrey Schools Supt. Jordan Tinney. "School districts are busy now trying to design models that meet the goalposts of these guidelines. The provincial guidelines include the principle that parents will have the choice to have their children remain learning at home or to have some access for face to face balanced with their current online/remote learning. No matter what, our hybrid models include face to face and online or remote learning for all children."
