Good afternoon,

I am pleased to get a chance to reconnect with all of you. Return to school plans have been front and centre in the media for the last month.

Know that we are submitting our full plan to the Ministry today for approval, and we will post our final draft to our website next week. Read More

Superintendent’s letter to parents March 25 2020

Dear West Vancouver Schools families,

As we get closer to Monday, I have that late August feeling of nervousness, anxiety and optimism as we start anew with our students.

I am sure your households are nothing like what they were even one month ago. I know for me, with a daughter in grade 12 anxious around graduation, her three younger siblings with differing levels of interest in returning to school, an 80-year-old mother who feels disconnected from the world right now and a spouse who is a small business owner who has seen her business close with no timelines of reopening – my house is very different. And so I am sure it is for you and it is for all of your families. I want to continually contextualize where we are because empathy and care for each other needs to guide our work.

Given this evolving situation, we wanted to send an update to parents and staff on the current situation, including how it may impact the many families who are looking forward to travelling during our spring break.
