School districts to observe national day of mourning

Following the provincial government’s announcement this afternoon, please note that all schools and programs will be closed on Monday, September 19, 2022, in observance of the funeral services for her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

As a public education system serving students, we were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II who, for more than 70 years, led a life of service. Along with other public institutions, as a sign of condolence and respect, all flags at schools and District sites were lowered to half-mast earlier this week and will remain so until sundown on Monday, September 19.

For a list of recreational facilities providing regular programming on Monday, September 19, visit the City of Vancouver's website or reach out to your local community centre directly for more information.
