COVID-19 Information
COVID-19

The health and safety of all students, staff and school communities is our top priority. In consultation with public health officials and the provincial government, Surrey Schools continues to monitor the ongoing situation with regard to COVID-19 and will provide updated information and resources on this page and through our social media accounts as they become available.

As you are aware, on March 17, on the direction of the Provincial Health Officer, the Ministry of Education suspended all in-class instruction for B.C. schools. A gradual lifting of restrictions was announced in May and the province soon unveiled B.C.'s Restart Plan and a return to optional in-class instruction that began June 1. (Please see the Ministry of Education's K-12 Education Restart Plan, as well as the Surrey Schools Safety Plan for the Resumption of In-Class Learning).

Having students and staff back in schools in June provided a lot of information that the district will use for September, when we hope to welcome more students back, full-time in classrooms. To prepare for the coming school year, Education Minister Fleming has appointed a steering committee that will: review lessons learned from March to June; identify existing and potential issues and propose solutions; update the Education Programs Guide for all return to school scenarios; and develop and support parent and teacher resources.

We are working closely with the Ministry to ensure we have a model in place for September that supports students, teachers and staff and will communicate detailed plans for September as soon as possible.
