News Release
K-12 students to have optional in-class instruction on June 1

May 12, 2020

Letter from the Superintendent of Schools

Dear Parents and Guardians, 
Yesterday, we posted the Ministry of Education’s updated Frequently Asked Questions and BC’s Restart Plan. 
This document included a link to the Five Stage Strategy for K-12 Education
Currently, we are in Stage 4 – this includes in-class learning for children of essential service workers and vulnerable students.
Remote and online learning continues for most students.

We understand how difficult it is to take on the role of teacher or tutor. It is our plan
that the learning opportunities provided are manageable in a home environment. 
Please call or email your child’s teacher if your child is feeling
overwhelmed or requiring support to manage learning from home.

For the past four weeks, we have been providing the children of Essential Service Workers
an in-school care program at the old Baker School site.  It has been a very safe and successful program. 
This week we have invited a few students in grades K-5, who would need special assistance
through face-to-face learning, back to school.  All elementary schools will have
small groups of students in attendance for a few hours two or three times per week.

Health and Safety remains our top priority and in all our planning for students and staff.
We are following the guidelines provided by the Public Health Officer, BC Centre for Disease Control,
WorkSafe BC, and the Ministry of Education. 

Thank you for your support and understanding. 

Stay Safe,


Sue-Ellen Miller
Superintendent of Schools

COVID-19    Update for Parents/Guardians 

Today’s message is to update you on the work of the District as we navigate student learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.
All families will have been contacted by their child’s teacher by this time. 
If you have not been contacted, please call the school as we might
not have your current contact information or phone number
The return of student belongings has taken place at all schools or will happen next week.
Again, if you have not been contacted please call the school or email your child’s teacher.

We know that parents/guardians are taking on a great deal as you work with
your children to continue their learning at home. We want to thank you and support you. 
On our homepage we have a link to resources created by our teachers called Resources for Learning at Home
These resources are additional supports not intended to replace any classroom program.

Starting this week learning activities have begun to go home – for some students this is through
work packages and for other students it is through electronic delivery.
We are working hard to ensure that all delivery methods provide equal learning opportunities for students.
Each teacher will work with their students and parents to provide learning
opportunities that are manageable.  If you have questions or need help please contact your child’s teacher.
Learning at home is new to all of us and we will get better at it over time.  
Stay safe everyone!
Sue-Ellen Miller
