Dear Parent and Guardians,
The province recently announced a new 4-step B.C. Restart Plan with implementation dates of May 25, June 15, July 1 and Sept 7. Moving through these 4 steps is dependent on the province continuing along the trajectory of fewer COVID infections and hospitalizations. The Ministry of Education and the Provincial Health Office have also provided school districts with clarity and specific directions for the remainder of this school year. Specifically, schools are to remain in our current Stage 2 configuration for the remainder of this school year and into the summer months. This means that all year-end school activities are expected to follow the current safety guidelines on things such as gatherings and cohort size limits.
As you are likely aware, we are currently planning for a return to Stage 1 in September which means a return to regular classes. We are expecting an announcement from the provincial government in late June with more details on any specifics for school operations in September.
We thank you for your ongoing cooperation and understanding as we continue to make our schools safe places for students and staff. If you have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Mrs. Mary Lynn Heron
