Dear Parents and Guardians,
As British Columbia begins to ease restrictions relating to COVID-19, public schools will play an important role in the provincial government’s Restart Plan. As you will likely have heard, the government is planning for a phased-in return to in-class instruction likely before the end of this school year. Although there are still many details to be worked out, I wanted to reach out to you to share what we know about the proposed plan and to talk about what we can expect in the coming weeks. Plan to Return to In-Class Instruction On May 6, the Ministry of Education released a plan for a staged return to in-class instruction. All school districts are currently in Stage 4. Based on direction from the Provincial Health Officer, schools will likely move to Stage 3 at the beginning of June. Parents are encouraged to review the attached letters from the Superintendent of Schools.
