Classes reorganized as some students transition back to in-person learning

There may be a few new classes at your child's school, as approximately 1,000 students from the Surrey Blended program rejoined their classmates for full-time in-class instruction after winter break.

In September, more than 8,800 elementary students in our district started the year in Surrey Blended, a program combining face-to-face and online learning that was established as an additional learning option available to all families who were not ready to have their child return to full-time face-to-face instruction when school began in September.

In early December, the district surveyed parents registered in the blended program to determine how many students would be returning in January. Based on these numbers, schools reorganized classes to safely accommodate this transition of students.

As a result, many students across the district may be in new cohorts or have a different teacher this week to accommodate student numbers and stick to class size limits. The district has worked to minimize the movement of students and ensure student safety in these new cohorts by capitalizing on the two-week winter break, which provided students with sufficient time away from school to safely establish new cohorts.

While reorganizing schools mid-year is unusual, it has not been a typical year. If there were any changes to your child's teacher or classroom assignment, parents were notified of this reorganization in December.

We know this is a difficult situation to navigate, and we appreciate your understanding as we go through this learning experience together.

If parents have any questions about their child's class, please contact your child's school.
