Partial Return to School June 1

As parents and students are aware, the Government of British Columbia is moving into the next phase of BC’s Restart Plan. Based on the positive data trends related to COVID-19, the Provincial Health Officer believes it is safe to provide greater access to schools beginning on June 1.

At Richmond Secondary, in-person instruction and remote learning are going to look different in June.  While remote learning will continue for all students, as we navigate the complexities of organizing classrooms under new health expectations, we have had to make changes to the way that we provide in-person instruction. Please note, the return to school in June is optional and voluntary and all parents had the opportunity to complete a survey. 

For Parents who Responded YES:  Students will continue with remote learning and from June 1-19, in-person instruction will be in the form of tutorial support.  Teachers and staff, from a wide range of curricular areas (e.g. business, ELL, English, fine arts, home ec, languages, math, science, social studies, tech ed), will be available to assist students with their remote learning studies.  Each week, students will be sent a link to sign up to attend for at least one day with grades 8-10 students coming from 9:00-11:00 AM and grades 11-12 students coming from 12:00-2:00 PM.

For Parents who Responded NO:  Students will continue with remote learning. If parents change their mind and would like their teen to access in-school support, they must contact the school.
