On Tuesday, August 11, Rob Fleming, B.C. Education Minister, reported that the date of September 8, 2020 for the students in grades K to 12 to be returning to school will be pushed back.
A new opening date for the students to return to school has not yet been determined. Minister Fleming said that a formal announcement from the province will be in about a weeks time.
The idea is to get staff back together, whether it’s support staff, teachers and administrators, to finalize how the school operations are going to work, [undergo] a thorough review of the CDC health and safety guidelines and then start to accept students back later in the first week of school. Discussions are ongoing.
