Dear Parents,

Please click here  for a message for parents and students from the Surrey School District.

Firstly,  hope you are well and looking after yourselves and loved ones, following the safe health protocols and practising social distancing. I’m sure many of you are finding creative ways to connect with family and friends with the use of technology. What we are all experiencing is unprecedented territory.  Each day brings new information and many new questions.

Be assured that we are working with the Ministry of Education and District to create an educational program for our students that will take effect later next week.

Please continue to monitor your email, and/or student FreshGrade accounts, school blog, and our school/district webpages.  These will be our platforms of communication to you.  If your contact information has changed (phone number, email, etc.) please make sure you contact the school on Monday (through email or phone call) to inform us of the changes.

As the health of our students, families, and staff are our primary concern, there will be no student access to the building at this time.  We are doing all we can to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to keep everyone safe.

I understand many of you have questions – please be patient and wait for additional information that will come from the school, and/or your child’s teacher later next week.  Many of your questions will be answered in that communication.  If you have questions or concerns after the information is relayed late next week, please forward your questions to us and/or your child’s classroom teacher, and we will do all we can to answer them.

We ask for you patience as we navigate this unchartered territory  with new obstacles and challenges.  We are adapting to the reality that neither staff nor students will be working together from school. Through it all, please know that we are committed to providing the best educational experience.  We will get through this together – one day at a time, working as a team.

Sincerely,

Ms. Chohan
