CMSD82 Safe Return to School Plans – 2020-2021 School Year

 

We share our updated District and School Plans related to Coast Mountains School District’s restart plan for the 2020-2021 school year, as provided below which reflect the updated Public Health Guidance documents for K-12 School Settings.

We were provided the parameters for Stage 2 from the Ministry of Education and the Provincial Health Officer.  The guidelines were developed based on the four principles.  The #1 principle is Healthy & Safety.  As you make your way through our plans, my hope is that they offer you reassurance related to your child’s safety and as they re-enter schools within Coast Mountains School District.

Our goal in the creation of these plans is to design safe environments that will provide families the reassurance that will allow them to send children back to school safely.  Please feel free to reach out to school administrators about school plans with any questions that you may have.

If you have any questions relating to the District Re-Start Plans, please email covid@cmsd.bc.ca.

Sincerely,

Janet Meyer
Superintendent of Schools
