SD5 and SD6 preparing for part-time in-class instruction
The Southeast Kootenay School District (SD5) and Rocky Mountain School District (SD6) are preparing to re-open in-class instruction, part-time, on Monday, June 1.
“We have a working group consisting of representatives from DPAC, teachers and CUPE, principals, and district staff in preparation for our return on June 1. Using the Ministry of Education and the Provincial Health Officer’s guidelines, we have an excellent plan in place for students and staff who are returning on June 1,” stated School District No. 5 superintendent Silke Yardley in a May 23 communication.
“We have continued to focus on the four areas that the Ministry of Education has identified. Please be assured these are in order of priority. Our number one priority is the health and safety of all students, families and employees. Every decision we make is on ensuring safety for all. There is an incredible amount of planning and organizing that schools will be doing this week in order for our students to return. Some of our plans may still adjust as we get new information from the Provincial Health Officer and Ministry of Education. As we work with our plans this week, for the most part, there will only be small adjustments.”
SD6 stated on its website: “We will be reopening for in-class instruction on a part time basis effective June 1. Attendance during the month of June is optional, but parents have been asked to respond to a survey to provide information regarding your intentions. If you did not respond to the survey and you would like your child to attend, please contact your school. School Restart Information for parents is found under the COVID 19 Communication link.”
