June 1st optional return to in-class instruction

On May 15, Premier Horgan and Minister Fleming announced that parents will have the choice to send their children back to school on a part-time basis, beginning on June 1.

Starting Monday, June 1 our district will begin a gradual return to face-to-face instruction using a staged approach. Please note that we will be continuing online learning, and in-class instruction is optional. There will be no penalty if parents choose not to send their children to school.

While families will receive details from individual schools next week (May 25-29), the general goal (as per provincial guidelines) is to allow opportunities for kindergarten to Grade 5 students to attend school two days per week and Grades 6-12 one day per week. Still, plans may vary based on individual school circumstances.

As always, the health and safety of staff and students is our first priority. All schools in our district will closely follow the Surrey Schools COVID-19 Safety Plan which outlines the six-step process our district will implement prior to resuming operations.

The district's safety plan is based on the Ministry of Education's COVID-19 Health and Safety Guidelines for K-12 setting, as well as the updated health and safety guidelines laid out by the BC Ministry of Health and BC Center for Disease Control. Both provincial documents identify key infection prevention and control practices to implement in school environments.

We will continue to work closely with public health experts to ensure all of our sites are safe and we can continue to limit the spread of COVID-19.
