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

Alternative Back-To-School Plan for K-9 Students & Information Sheet

 

Message for CMSD82 Parents/Guardians from our Superintendent of Schools:

 

Dear Parents/Guardians:

For your information and interest, Coast Mountains School District 82 developed an alternative back-to-school plan for parents/guardians of Kindergarten to Grade 9 students who are not comfortable with sending their children back to school right away due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

These are very challenging times and we understand that some families need more time to become comfortable with the safety protocols implemented by their schools.

This new Learn-from-Home Transition Plan will have students remain enrolled in their neighbourhood school and start the school year at home before transitioning back to the classroom.  To clarify, this is not a fourth option for educating children … this is a extension or a subset of Option 1: Brick and Mortar (Traditional School).

Important notations for parents/guardians to know regarding the new transition plan:

  • This a “temporary” plan intended to keep students connected to their school.  Students would work on literacy, numeracy and core competency skills.
  • This will not mirror the classroom.
  • Families would be responsible for supporting their child’s learning at home and there would be weekly check-ins by a Transition Program Teacher.
  • It is the school district’s expectation that families would transition back to school by the end of October/beginning of November.

We have developed a K-9 Learn from Home Transition Plan “information sheet” for the information of parents/guardians:

CMSD82 K-9 Learn from Home Transition Plan – Information Sheet – Sept. 11, 2020

The following illustration provides an overview of the Learn-from-Home Transition Plan:

Parents/Guardians are asked to contact their School Principal should they have questions or they require more information.

Sincerely,

 

Janet Meyer
Superintendent of Schools
