Back to school in September 2020

Dear Families and Students,  

The Vancouver School District developed a proposed District-wide plan for back to school in September, guided by the Ministry of Education and the Provincial Health Office requirements. The draft proposed plan will be presented to the Board of Education at a Special Meeting of the Board on August 19, 2020 at 7pm.

School Operations 

Vancouver students will attend school every day, under Stage 2 of the government’s plan. Enhanced health and safety measures will be in place before students return to schools. We want to provide you with as much information as possible about our proposed plans. We have made several videos and posted fact sheets to our website outlining details about health and safety measures you can expect, as well as information about students’ return to their elementary and secondary schools.

As previously announced by government, the first two days of the school year will see only staff in schools. During this time, they will review all health and safety measures and begin reaching out to students and their families with specific details about the first week of student attendance. Classes will be organized and timetables finalized.  

We will continue to share information and updates in the coming weeks, from your schools directly as well as on the District’s website and social media channels.  

Our plans prioritize student learning, safely maximize instructional time and will endeavour to keep your children connected to their teachers and schools. Thank you for your patience as we continue to refine and finalize our plans.
