Here are the restart plans for every school district in the Lower Mainland

Sep 9 2020, 11:18 am

With BC students set to return to the classroom this Thursday, September 10, back-to-school plans for K-12 families are now posted for all districts right across the province.

Having these plans in place was a provincial requirement from the Ministry of Education as part of its restart plan, and late last month, Education Minister Rob Fleming announced that all school districts in BC had met this requirement.

“With these plans now in place, parents can feel confident about sending their children back to school and assured that strict health and safety measures are in place to protect students and staff,” said Fleming at the time. “I know that some families will continue to have medical or health concerns, and my expectation is that school districts will be flexible and work with families to provide remote options that keep children connected to their school community.”
