On Friday, May 8, Premier Stephen McNeil announced that students will not be returning to classrooms this school year and that formal learning will end as of June 5. The Premier shared disappointment that the graduating class of 2020 will not end their year as normal and offered reassurances that grad celebrations will be planned when it is safe to do so.
We join the Premier in thanking parents, guardians, and family members for doing their best to support children’s learning.

We will continue offering opportunities for students to engage in learning at home through assignments and activities provided by teachers until June 5. After June 5, teachers will focus on assessing student progress for year-end report cards.
You likely have questions about what happens next. We are working with our colleagues at the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development to provide more information soon. Please check back here for updates.
This has been a challenging time for families, and we thank you for all you are doing to stay connected with your child’s school to support your child’s learning. Please continue to do your best to keep your child engaged in learning, in a way that is right for you and your family.
If you need support, your child's teacher or principal can help, or can put you in touch with resources in the school or community. ScholsPlus is also available to connect you with community resources. School contact information is available at https://www.avrce.ca/our-schools.
