Education Matters

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping’.” – Fred Rogers
We have seen first-hand how our district’s values have been at play during these difficult times. Collaboration and equity being in the forefront along with responsibility. Our every effort is being made to keep all stakeholders in the know. We are working together to set up communication systems that work for our staff and students’ immediate needs.
After the Minister of Education’s announcement last week to suspend all in-class instruction following the spring break, our staff is working together on ways to continue our students’ learning whilst also keeping them and their loved ones safe. We will be creative, innovative and successful in supporting our students and their families. Further, we are working closely with the Ministry of Education and Vancouver Coastal Health to keep our students and staff safe in every way that we can while also meeting the mandate set out by the province. Finally, we are following the guidance of the Office of the Provincial Health Officer and the BC Centre for Disease Control in assisting operational matters and coordinating pandemic response
With community support and parents’ collaboration, we all can make it through these difficult times. Thanks to technology, we have been able to maintain contact with our teams and community stakeholders. We are in communication with other districts and other local governments as we navigate these unprecedented waters. Our community is stepping forward. Our most important partners in this are our students’ parents who are navigating this alongside us. We know it is frustrating; we know it is asking a lot. Be patient as this is not a quick fix.

During these difficult times remember, “Chin-Chin Sway” (We are all in this together.)
