Expansion of In-Class Learning in June

The Burnaby School District has detailed plans for both health and safety, as well as the expansion of in-class learning. Students returning to school in June will notice significant changes from when they attended before Spring Break, including smaller class sizes and strict health measures. Returning to in-class learning is optional.

If you have changed your plans regarding sending your student to school since responding to the survey sent by your school at the end of May, please contact your child’s principal.

Health and Safety

Since Spring Break, schools have been operating successfully with protocols and guidelines provided by the Provincial Health Officer, Ministries of Health and Education, the BC Centre for Disease Control, the Fraser Health Authority and WorkSafe BC.

The health, safety and well-being of our entire community remains our priority. We will continue to adhere to strict health and safety measures. Anyone with illness symptoms must refrain from entering the school.
