November 6, 2019

As the walls are coming up at new elementary schools in South Surrey, the process of establishing new catchment boundaries has begun – and we want students and parents to have a say.

Site 180 (17325 2nd Avenue) and Site 206 (16666 23rd Avenue) are scheduled to open in 2021 and will have space for 1,177 students, easing overcrowding at nearby elementary schools.

The goal in developing new catchment boundaries is to ensure student numbers are balanced between nearby elementary schools. In South Surrey, these include East Kensington, Hall’s Prairie, Morgan, Pacific Heights, Rosemary Heights and Sunnyside elementary schools.

The district has created five options for the South Surrey consultation. All options aim to finding that balance, while also taking into consideration future residential growth and Choice Program locations.

This consultation will be an opportunity to define the culture and character of new school communities. Parent and student input are an important part of this process.

The catchment boundary options for South Surrey can be reviewed here online and in a downloadable Information Package. There are maps illustrating the proposals, with accompanying charts that provide further details about each option.

Input is being sought via an online survey. The survey is also available in written form at the individual schools, or can be printed here and returned to your school. Feedback can also be submitted by email to consultations@surreyschools.ca.

A series of community forums is scheduled to share information with the South Surrey communities about the potential boundary changes. Each forum runs from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.:

November 18 – Morgan Elementary, 3366 156A Street
November 19 – Hall’s Prairie Elementary, 18035 8th Avenue
November 20 – Sunnyside Elementary, 2828 158th Street

The information presented will be the same at each forum. Feedback is being accepted until the consultation period ends December 18.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Surrey Schools is excited about the opening of two brand new elementary schools in the South Surrey community.

These beautiful new facilities will provide inviting and engaging learning environments for students and serve as hubs for the evolving South Surrey community. These two new elementary schools will also relieve the enrolment pressures at Sunnyside, Pacific Heights and Hall’s Prairie elementary schools.

As part of the process for opening new schools, the School District establishes catchment boundaries. Boundary reviews will include the East Kensington, Hall’s Prairie, Morgan, Pacific Heights, Rosemary Heights and Sunnyside communities.

As parents and guardians living in the South Surrey community, the School District is inviting your input and feedback on catchment boundary options. The School District is coordinating a consultation process in early November so you can easily contribute your views and suggestions.

In early November, please watch for further information being sent home. A dedicated website will be available for information and comments at this time.

In addition, evening forums will be held in mid-November for South Surrey-area school communities to share their feedback and ideas about the potential boundary changes. Times and locations of the consultation forums will be included in the early November information package that will be sent home.

The consultation concludes December 18th. Community contributions and comments will be summarized by staff in a report to the superintendent, which will be presented to the Board of Education in the spring. Please feel free to share your input and suggestions during the consultation process.

Surrey Schools look forward to hearing from you.
